34. Topsy gets a dawg!!!

Great news for us and Topsy, last saturday we collected out new dog from the Dogs Trust at Sadberge.... here's what it said on their website about our new friend, Olive....

Likes and Dislikes: Olive is cheeky girl, who is always happy and loves to make people smile! She has lived in the same home since she was a young pup, before being returned to us due a change in her family’s circumstances. Olive is housetrained and can be left in an indoor kennel for short periods of time.
Type of home needed: Olive is a busy dog who will need an active family who can keep up with her. She is used to going camping and hill-walking, so we’d love to find her a new family who enjoy these activities too! We think Olive may have been overlooked here at Dogs Trust because she only has one eye. However, it’s all she’s ever known so please don’t let this put you off! Overall, she’s a lovely, bouncy girl, who will make a fabulous addition to an energetic family.

We met her on the previous saturday, took her for a walk (myself, Babs, Belle, and Jenny), and liked her.... Then we went through the stress of the home visit! But that was fine, phew! Then we brought her home on thursday for a couple of hours to meet the cat... She didn't attack her, so everything was set up for bringing her home. Yippee!!!!! The day came, we duly paid our £75 (no discount for missing body parts though!), and we brought her home for good - kids adore her, as do I....

She has settled in quite well, and enjoys the beach (but not the sea), and she loves Weardale!! Her and the cat, well, they're not bezzy mates yet, but there's been no fur flying!
