Katie's zest for life

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 19 June 2012 | 3 Comments


Just wanted to write and let you know how well everything is going with Katie, who we adopted from you in February.


Katie came to us at about 8 months old and very quickly got settled in at home learning that our big cat Kirby is the boss! She has so much zest for life and seeing her happy smiling face and big body wags when we get in in the morning is a brilliant start to the day. We live on Leighton Beach, and Katie loves her daily walks to play in the sea and chase her ball. She has a slight ball obsession and would play fetch 24hours a day if she could! She gets excited as soon as we get her ball out and carries it proudly all the way down to the beach ready for her game. She even learned to swim in summer, and loves diving through the waves, of course in pursuit of her ball, or anyone else’s ball that looks interesting….

She has met some brilliant friends at home, and is especially close to Dougie the British Bull Dog, who fancies her and even shares his treats with her if she asks nicely. She also goes out with Paws in the Park for group walks twice a week and has a great time with all her doggy friends.

Katie is such a loving dog too, and spends her evenings cuddled up with us watching tv, we try and take her everywhere we go, and she can’t wait to hop into the back of the car to see where the next adventure is. She is our beautiful friend, and so loved. Thank you for finding such a wonderful little girl for us.
