IZZY - Adopted Dec 2013

My husband and I lost our golden lab (Zippy) sadly in 2011 due to complications from epilepsy, we had had him from a puppy and to lose him just 1 day after his 10th birthday seemed far too soon. After losing Zippy it soon became apparent that we missed not sharing our life with a Labrador and so after careful consideration we registered with Labrador Rescue in October 2013 and were soon matched with Izzy.

Izzy is a beautiful black Labrador of gun dog stock who was 3 at the time of adoption. Sadly she could no longer we worked as a gun dog due to a terrible fear of gun shot noise and bangs. We met Izzy on a Saturday morning early December and instantly fell in love with her - she was playful and loving and had the craziest wagging tail that hasn't stopped wagging in 6 months.

Having never had a female dog we were plunge into a world of new territory almost immediately as were told by our vet she was in season within our first week!!! Thus delaying the planned spay operation. She then unfortunately went into a 3 month long false pregnancy which unnerved her together with all the changes. She finally had a spay operation in March and is now a very happy girl.

We took her to the Lake District recently for a weeks holiday and she loved running in and out of the lakes chasing toys. She is an absolutely adorable girl who is as happy sitting having a cuddle as running around chasing a ball.

Thank you very much to Labrador Rescue for finding Izzy for us she is very special and very much loved.

Lots of love

Lovely update, understand the false pregnancy thing, our Millie had one and it played havoc with her hormones. Glad all sorted now.

Love Michelle X
