A flying visit yet again...

Sorry, a really bad internet connection here in Glasgow!

I just wanted to post a quick update re the dog situation!

I visited a foster home near Bournemouth on Saturday and met Hank (named by the rescue centre) He is a scruffy bundle of terrier.  Probably Patterdale, with several others breeds mixed in - I am thinking Dachshund and God only knows.

He came over from a rescue centre in Ireland where they are only allowed to keep dogs for 7 days, then they are's at that point that they are picked up by other rescue centres here, packed into crates and put on a ferry.

He is under 2, good with children, other dogs and very sweet.  He no idea how to walk on a lead, don't think he has ever been walked :0( He was so shy and spent most of the visit under the dining table, but Mum, Dad and I feel for him!

Once the home check is done, I should be able to pick him up on Tuesday!!  Mega excited now and busy trying to organise lead, collar, bedding, bowls, treats and food - not easy when you aren't at home.

Have to go to bed now, as up at the crack of sparrows, but will leave you with a picture of my new dog.  He is now called Milo.
