“We got our wee Jessie from Phoenix, thanks to Verity Lineham who told us about her. She is everything we hoped she would be. Here she is with her wee ‘sister’ Bonnie who came to us thanks to Marcella Sally Wyatt Birnbaum who arranged for her to be delivered from Spain via Home From Home Transport. I can’t thank all of you enough. Here are some photos.”
Here is little Fifi Trixibelle (was Topaz) who was adopted by the Roberts family, along with Jaya, adopted the same day from the SPA.
Here is Fifi (the smaller one) sharing a bowl with Jaya, for the first time.
Here is Fifi with big brother, Zing, who is getting used to her being around!
And finally on new family member, Rhiannon’s knees!
I use to call out for you Granny.
How often that name has resounded in my house.
I would find you asleep on the sofa, cuddled up in the bed, running to me at sausage time with your dear companion Rosie.
But no more – You left us at 4 in the morning of 22nd November 2014, after twenty months spent together.
Mercifully a sudden death, just several days on medication for your weakening heart.
So much love in such a little lady.
My thoughts and love go with you forever –
Take them with you over the rainbow bridge.
“This is our beautiful kitten, she arrived back with us today, she has been lovingly looked after by Caroline Archer, and now she is being spoiled rotten here, Thank you, and to all who look at her, remember, she and many others need loving kind forever homes, open your hearts and rescue one of these very special cats, thank you.”
“We have just adopted these two rascals, first we took Baxter but he looked a bit lonely so we got him a playmate, Ozzy. They are settling down well together and are very funny playing and chasing each other for hours before collapsing exhausted for 5 minutes before starting again. Also the occasional fisticuffs to try to establish who is the boss – Ozzy by a short hair so far. Baxter is very good at catching balls, Ozzy has no idea (life has obviously been too serious up till now) but he is learning, their training continues! Thanks to all at Phoenix for the great job you do, you make such a difference.
I am enclosing a couple of pics of my friend Babs and her new yorkie Katie Rose.
Sheilagh e mailed me a couple of months ago to say did I know anyone for a little old Yorkie girl who had been chucked over the fence at Bergerac Spa, she was found there in the morning. She was 10 or 12 and had mammary tumours, sore eyes and a mouth infection due to bad teeth. I told Babs about her and after chatting to Sheelagh, she and her mum drove down the next day.
Happy endings, she follows Babs everywhere and sleeps with her now. She has had the rotten teeth out and her eyes and mouth are now better. She can eat for France and is a chunky, friendly little girl. Babs always wanted a Yorkie and as a pensioner herself wanted an older dog and so it has all worked out beautifully.
“Our two are so lovely and so love each other,. Buster would be at a loss with his side kick Rosie!
Here is a pic of Buster enjoying one of his favourite pastimes, watching TV. And Rosie thinking eating chips could be one of her favourite pastimes!
And Rosie thinking eating chips could be one of her favourite pastimes!“
Katie & Mike.
Lois was in the pound at Vergt (near Phoenix HQ) for weeks. Twice, the Vergt Cantonnier thought he had managed to re-home her, but it didn’t work out so she was sent to the SPA Bergerac.
Phoenix asked the SPA to chip and rabies vaccinate her and Lois travelled to Holland with Lady’s Rescue Dogs on Monday and then straight to her new home.
She looks very comfortable with her new family.
“Since i adopted Binkie she has been a lovely girl. She loves her long walks we go on, also her playtime with her tennis and footballs. She learns things very quick but forgets sometimes. She has learnt a lot of new commands. She has never chewed anything except her chew bones and is well behaved.
I will admit though for a big girl she don’t like the dark, and if she wants to go out in small hours of the night I’m stood in the middle of the garden with lights on in the rain in my dressing gown and slippers
But bless her, I love her to bits.”
These puppies were born to mum, Hermione and they were all at risk of being put to sleep. Hermione was found as a pregnant stray and was taken to the SPA pound. We stepped in and saved them all. Here are the enchanting photos of them all in their new homes!
Formerly known as Helga, she is one of the lucky dogs to be adopted to Holland via Lady’s Rescue Dogs.
Her first adoption didn’t work out, but it looks like she’s pretty happy in her now forever home.
This is Joey who was adopted by my dad from you in July, he is now 5 months old and we have found out he is a Gordon Setter X Beagle. I am travelling down to see them both with lots of pressies from my dogs. Cant wait to see him, hes now 15kg. Doing very well with training and has become dad’s shadow. Joey is very affectionate and still goes to see his playmates that my brother also adopted the same day.
This is Arthur (formally Allan) whom we adopted from Lynda last Wednesday, he is such a wonderful little character and is settling in really well with his new big sister (Anna) and big Canine brother (Luca).
I have attached a few photos of the little guy for Happy adoptees album.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful work you all do!!
Thanks, Ange x
