Five years ago today.

Five years ago today we adopted our darling Missy from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.

There on Battersea's website, she has her own page as a "Happy Ending" 
If you click, you can read her story.

We are so pleased we adopted her.. we've given an older dog a second chance of a good life - and we are rewarded with the most darling companion.
That's a true win-win, then :)

Happy 5th Adoption Day, my darling girl.

has it been 5 years? Really? Its flown by...

  5. Pat, your baby girl is adorable and I have pretty much the same story, I adopted Angie from a shelter when she was already 5 years old. I was hesitant thinking she'd already bonded with someone else. An older woman who could no longer take care of her... Well, I did it anyway.
    Angie has now been with me for 11 years, yes she is 16 and I don't want to even think of whats to come.. I just enjoy having her a big part of my every day..It was not her lucky day, but mine.
    ps. some problems with my laptop have kept me from commenting but I;m working on it . BJ

  6. BJ - that's exactly how we feel! It was our lucky day when we adopted Missy :)
    Our last russell lived to 18, so we had no worries about adopting an 8 year old.. the bonding comes.. maybe not so quickly as a pup, but older rescues give so much love.
    Well done to you for adopting Angie.. you lucky human! xx

  17. Happy Fifth Adoption Day, Missy!

    Pat, I'd missed a couple of posts, so I scrolled down and saw that you've been doing some lovely work. "Invisible Friend" made me cry and the cowgirl made me smile.

  20. Oh... happy anniversary!! Five years! Don't they just go by too fast! You know... I love puppies and kittens... but I really really love dogs and cats! Except for really big dogs, which it's often good to have a history with, I can never understand people getting tired of these darlings when they outgrow babyhood - I think that's just when they become perfect!
    Blessings for many many more happy years together!

    PS Our little Edward is going to finally have to have that operation - tomorrow... I'll post about it after he's all well again... too hard to do so now...

    Will be saying a prayer for Edward and a successful op and recovery. xx

  24. Hi Pat. Thank you so much for your kind words the other day. And too for the poem, On Silent Paws. It was most beautiful and so timely. You are a great animal lover and you understand how special they are and how hard it is to see them go. You are a blessing and i enjoy your blog so much. Keep on keepin on. Ross
