Forever Home

This is Ella our lovely little girl has been with us 12 month tomorrow, isn't she lovely? We adopted her from the North West Golden Retriever Rescue in Chorley which is a voluntary organisation run by Jan Robinson who has done a fantastic job of re homing these beautiful dogs. Since she started the rescue in 1984 she has helped re homed more than 5000 dogs, unbelievable that so many dogs would need a new home but thanks to Jan they have.
When we got Ella on the 8th Feb 2009 she has been a stray and brought to the rescue, we believe she was about 12 months old, so she is probably about two now. This is the first time we have adopted a dog and have to say we would do it again, its so rewarding to see how she has changed in those 12 months with lots of love and affection. This was taken a few weeks ago when we had all the snow, she just loved it.

She is just gorgeous Sonia. We've never had a retriever just Labs, at the moment a chocolate girlie called Maddy. Don't know why my daughter chose that name - though she is not quite so daft now. Maybe because she'll be 10 this year!
