I'm so happy for Willow. Her new labby friends seem as though they have really taken to her. What better home could we all have wished for for the lovely Willow!
Well done to all who have brought her this far in her recovery and for finding her this wonderful home.
Just going to dab the tears away now.

I think its one of those little miracles :) and a set of circumstances call it fate.
Originally The Vet nurse from the Animal Hospital in Liverpool rang me about her they had taken Willow to their hearts..... the nurses all clubbed together to buy her the wheels to help her walk,then they in fact always kept in contact with us Ian put the appeal on, people helped to sponsor her swimming sessions ..... the Nurses were fabulous people
They came up with a foster home who were fantastic....by then we were really racing against time as the foster home was only a short term fix then a massive quirk of fate a Veterinary Nurse saw Wllows story on this site and told her new employers (the new family) and they offered her a home.
Even in my many years of rescue experience this has to be one of THE great examples of dogs lovers being brought together by teamwork and dedication and love of dogs.
I want to also mention Ian here who I can only say has the finger on the pulse all the time regarding this site ask and its done if not imedietley then sooner :) he is like a whirlwind and the appeals are there and people love to see the result of their giving and this is made possible by Ians dedication to our rescue.
So thank you to everyone (sorry not great on names senior thingy :wink: ) Nurses,Fosterers,new family ,and our wonderful kind supporters who are always so caring and genrously kind.

I am thrilled for Willow, things couldn't have worked out better for this girl. I was really quite worried when I first heard about her story and wondered how things would turn out for her........this outcome was something I never expected. It is just wonderful.

I will confess here that when I first got the call I thought it would be an impossible task but am so glad that I was proved wrong.

I am so very lucky to have support of a great team and wonderful supporters who usually trust me to make big decisions like I do and really with all the nurses working and helping her and the foster family it all came together,we were just all cogs in a wheel

Someone up there must like us :wink:
