Some Happy News!

This is Leo! Need I say more? Leo came home today. 11 year old Labrador that someone else didn't want - can you imagine that? I'm sure you will be hearing more from him as he settles into his new home. What a lucky boy!

I'm so pleased you stepped right back in and gave another dog a loving home (Buddy would be proud too).

Leo's tail says it all!

Excellent news Matron, and a big welcome to Leo, you've got nothing but joy and happiness ahead of you lad, hope you like GARDENING!!!

I'm thrilled to bits for both you and Leo. He's a smasher, I can tell he'll fit right in. How could someone not want such a gorgeous dog?, beats me.

What an absolute darling - he looks extremely sprightly for 11 years old. I confess this is exactly what I wanted to do some months back but Management didn't want to take on another "2nd hand dog" - I wish I had stuck to my guns but it was not the right time for him. Perhaps in another year or too she says wistfully - in the meanwhile I shall enjoy watching Leo settle in and take over your life and heart!

Brought a big smile to my old fizzog this morning when I saw your new boy. Happy days...

Leo has some big paws to fill, but he looks up to the challenge. Congrats on you both for finding each other. :-D

Leo looks a great dog - has that look of mischief that makes for such fun. Lovely to see a lab that's not overweight. Enjoy!

How could anyone turn away that face! But lucky you and lucky Leo. I wish you many wonderful years together.
