Jackie and Mark came for a visit on Sunday, I thought they might be looking for another dog they already have two from us, but no. They very kindly brought a cheque for 250-00 from FMC in Dunfermline, this was really appreciated and we would like to thank FMC for thinking of us.

Thank you to The Out Reach Club >>
Posted: 9th September 2009

This is some of the people who go to the Out Reach Club in Rosyth who were assisted by Heather and Phil in raising 100-00 for the kennels and two of the ladies are doing crochet blankets, a sample of which we brought away today. Stig went with us and he thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone, and he especially liked the sandwich he found.

Thanks very much to all involved it is very much appreciated.

Ena & Frank.

Posted: 4th September 2009

Just had to let everyone know who have followed Gayle and Roy's story.

Roy is doing really well as a pet, well we knew he would excell at that, cuddly wee man that he is.

Gayle has a different role in life now she has just passed as aTherapet dog, this for a dog that a behaviourist in Aberdeen said nothing could be done with ! You showed them girl. This is her with her brother Tyser who is also from Second Chance and he is Therapet / agility and is learning heel work to music.

The Reekie family also have Jess another border collie and Bob a wee terrier who are both learning agility and yes you've guessed it are also Second Chance dogs.

Thanks guys for all the work and commitment you give our dogs.

A massive thank you to Kate & friends >>
Posted: 17th March 2009

Oh wow! Well done and we look forward to seeing you at the weekend and will try and have Hob Nob here so the boys can meet him. Brilliant photo's Kate.

Hi Ena,

Success . . . we (40 of us- that's 7 dogs, 19 kids & 14 Mums and Dads) did our walk up Scolty Hill, Banchory, on Saturday. As you can see from the fly-away hair styles it was rather windy at the top! The kids are all collecting their sponsorship money this week so hope to get total to you at the weekend.

We are going to try and come down to the kennels on Saturday (with Gypsy too) so are you likely to be there, and when is a good time?

If you have any dogs to pet / play with Alex and Harry would love to help entertain them!!

Is Hobnob in foster care or at the kennels, if he's about we'd love to say hello!??!

Hope to see you soon


A massive thank you to Kate & friends
Michael with Bailey >>
Posted: 16th March 2009

This young man Michael came along to the kennels today with his Dad, he saw a bit in the papers about the dogs, so he made a doggy poster and sold it and raised 10-00 pounds for the kennels. What a guy thinking of others instead of himself, these young men are going to grow up into very thoughtful young men and I hope they never change.Thank you so much Michael xx

This is Kyle & Keir Anderson who came up and donated their pocket money to help Hobnob, how lovely was that. So many children would have wanted to get a new game for their play station ect: Thank you very much boys we really appreciate it.

There was also another lovely young lad who came up with his Mum, it had been his Mum's birthday and he made her a card and put his pocket money in it and asked her to donate it to Hobnob. Sadly I didn't get his photo.

These young lads are going to grow up into lovely young men, when they are as thoughtful as this at their age just now, their folks should be really proud of them.

The Diary of Oliver >>
Posted: 8th January 2009

Hiya everyone it's Oliver here, just to say hello and let all you kind people who ask after me know how I am getting on.I am not as sick now and putting on weight and getting bigger every day.I am a cheeky wee monkey and just love to get out to play when visitors come to see me.
Love Oliver x

Update 2nd December:

This picture was just taken on Saturday past, don't you think I've grown, I'm getting a big boy now. Go to see the doc on Thursday only thing is I have to stay in overnight and will be having an x-ray video taken to see how I am progressing. Just hope the girls remember to take my dinners with them.
Love Oliver xx

Update 4th December:
Whoohoo went to see my aunties & uncles at the Dick Veterinary college and guess what I now weigh a whopping 8.9 k..yipee!! The vets were very pleased with my progress and say I don't need the x-ray and don't need to go back unless the girls are worried about me in anyway. I think the only worry they will have is will they still be able to lift me. Ena & Mhairi were so excited and pleased that I was doing so well they took me to Pets at Home and bought me a new indestructible toy. I need toys that I can't chew bits off, you see.
lots of love
Oliver xx

Update 13th Dec: Well our Oliver is doing well, he has now graduated to dried puppy food and he has some tuna through it, albeit we soften it for him. We improvise for him by putting loads of dishes on to a high stand and as you can see he manages fine.

21st Dec: Hiya it's me Oliver with a wee update, I am doing really well down to three feeds a day which I eat all by myself. Guess what I was so excited, I got to go out into the yard in the front of the kennels and had great fun played with two wee boys. And wait for it I must be getting a big boy now 'cause I lifted my leg for the first time. Then it was time for me to go in for a rest, not likely it took ages for them to catch me hehehe. Well, I am going away for a nap just now speak to you all later. Lots of love Oliver xxx

Ps: don't you think I'm getting big !! The girl's say there is devilment staring out of my eyes, as if !

Update 8th January:
Hi everyone well I had a really exciting day today. I went for my first walk sporting a lovely yellow harness, and I met a thing called a tractor it was really big and made a lot of noise, but I wasn't too scared at all, there were lots of lovely smells and I thoroughly enjoyed it.I only went for a wee walk as it as my first time out after my op.I have lots of things to get used to as I have been in here for about four months now and it was just great to get out and about. I ate all my tea when I came in. Gavin is coming to take me for a walk tomorrow I think, so that will be another walk with someone different. Although I know Gavin and his wife Irene really well.

Update 9th January:

And here they are at least my dad, mum will get her photo taken tomorrow with me. Irene & Gavin have been visiting the kennels for ages and take all the dogs for walks. At last the girls have let me go although it was very sad for them as we have been through a lot together, but they know I will be well looked after, and will visit often with my folks. Lots of love Oliver xxx.

Me getting ready to go home with my dad, just need to wait till Ena & Mhairi get their hankies xx
