Thank you to everyone who left comments on my last post. I appreciate every one of them.
This is Ailsa, mums fur baby. She is the sweetest little dog you could hope to meet. She was with mum in her final moments and came with us to the funeral. I know she misses mum very much, I often find her curled up outside her bedroom door. She is staying with us for now, but will soon be going to live with a very dear family friend in accordance with mums wishes.
She is very good for me. Being a 13 month old springer spaniel, she has a huge amount of energy and needs lots of walks. She loves to swim so enjoys walks by the river and on the beach. My plan to keep her dry one day back fired, I swear this pup could find a muddy puddle in a desert. And once she finds it, she dives right on in, head first!! She is a clever little soul and makes her own fun with all manner of toys as well as the usual sticks and balls. She does look funny running round with huge great logs in tow and I'm sure she thinks her paws are hands.
