Will be giving this girl good luck cuddles tomorrow when I visit the kennels! She really is a sweetie and Megan - you have really supported her, thank you so much for being her "special person" xx

Fingers crossed for Pippin on Sunday, and so great for everyone who has helped her get this far. I didn't walk her too often but my heart went out to her in kennels xxx

I met Pippin for the first time on Friday and we had just the loveliest walk in the sunshine, she was such an easy girl to walk, happy to go at my pace, no pulling. We sat down a few times for treats and cuddles and I took a few lovely photos that just need to be shared with the world - such a gentle girl and such easy company ! Wishing you lots of luck for today Pippin !

Pippin welcomed her new owners Andrew & Leisa with glee apparently. I only witnessed the family gathering from a far but Pippin was sitting down and offering her paw at the time. Nicky will share all.


Our special thanks to Angie & Amanda in Safe & Sound for being Pippin's bedrock when she most needed that faith and support. Our thanks to all our Guildford volunteers who have cheered Pippin along helping her to regain confidence around dogs and making Pippin so ripe for homing.

Oh my, this was one of those very special homings which despite my best efforts left me teary in the car park afterwards - for all the right reasons!

It was fitting that the weather was so spectacular for Pippin's special, special day and excitement was in the air for Andrew and Leisa (and for all the Guidlford walkers waiting to hear with bated breath how the meeting went). As some of you may know Pippin can be nervous of new men so I had asked Andrew to ignore her to start with so she could move things along at her own pace. And out of the gate she bounced with her very special walker friend Megan ... and promptly bounced up to Andrew and jumped up for a hug! woo.gif] Extraordinary for Pippin and it was clear immediately that this was one of those "meant to be" homings! love4.gif

Off we went for Pippin's lovely last Guildford walk and she could definitely sense something was in the air as she pony trotted along in her pretty new harness. Andrew was like a magnet for her, and it was such a delight to see her so happy and confident with him and with Leisa in such a short time. I really didn't need to ask the question at the end of the walk ... it was a 'slam dunk' all round! Paperwork completed, one last special Pippin cuddle for Megan (cue tears for everyone!) and then into the car ... and oh my goodness she couldn't get into Andrew and Leisa's car fast enough! One happy smiley dog sitting on the back seat with Leisa and as we waved them off all we could see was Pippin's tail wagging furiously through the back window love4.gif

Andrew and Leisa, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking Pippin into yours. She's a very special girl who has waited far too long for "her family" but today really proved she was waiting for YOU! You have made so many people spectacularly happy today! THANK YOU!

Kiss of love.gif

Special thanks also to Megan who has been Pippin's anchor whist she waited for Andrew and Leisa, supporting and guiding her throughout. You'll always have a special place in Pippin's heart, Megan, as she will in yours.

Go have a wonderful life Pippin! You're so very loved xxx
