Carly and Cassie are a happy little duo

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 4 April 2012 | 5 Comments


Here is a long overdue note about Carly and Cassie Shannon....they have happily settled in their new home.


Carly stopped walking in circles straightaway. She still likes to check the boundaries, but with a very big backyard she can do this at a satisfying gallop!

Their twin doggy beds both have comfy pillows on top. Cassie likes to sleep inside the pillow case! When she first did this I thought it was a 'one-off', but 9 times out of 10 when I open an eye in the morning, there's Carly peacefully asleep on one bed, and a bulgy pillowcase containing Cassie on the other.

Carly isn't as photogenic as Cassie and often looks rather worried , but I believe she's a happy little dog.


Cassie has appointed herself the guard dog and barks if anyone she doesn't know turns up on the door step. She is however, petrified of thunder and fireworks. Carly, on the other hand, takes no notice. We think she's a) untroubled and b) fairly deaf.

With best wishes for the great job you do at the Refuge
