A few weeks ago, we shared a story of a lovely 102-year-old lady with her greyhound Ella. We had such a lovely response to the post, giving people hope that we had no age restriction on adopters as long as the match was right, and the dog would always be cared for if needed. Imagine our heartbreak when, just a few days later, we received the sad news that Ella had sadly passed away unexpectedly.
But, true to our promise that age is no barrier to adoption, we made it our mission to find another dog that this lovely lady could enjoy the company of. Her family were on hand to support her and care for a dog should the need ever arise, so, all we had to do was find a match.
Happening pretty much simultaneously, Dara sadly came back into our care and was really struggling in kennels. So, could fate play a hand in this? Could they provide each other with the much needed companionship each needed?
We’ll let this lovely lady’s son pick up the story from here
Just to let you know that Dara has taken over the house very well! She is doing brilliantly, settling in, but still excited with everything so new to her. She is very friendly to everyone. Apart from the squirrels perhaps! She’s fascinated by them, but not been let off the lead to chase them! She loves her bed by the Aga (always a favourite), and she even allowed my brother-in-law to share her settee, so she’s very polite. My mother loves her, and they sit together on the settee watching TV (when she’s not looking out of the window for squirrels!).
We’re not crying….you are!
We wish them a long and happy future together. 💕
