Stormy's story

Hi there We adopted Stormy over 2 months ago now, and thought you might like to hear how he's getting on.

Well, it's like he's always been with us! We can't remember what life was like without him. He was a bit shy and reserved at first, but as the weeks pass, more and more of his true personality emerges. He is a very loving dog, who likes nothing better than curling up between my husband and I on the couch. Sometimes it is difficult to move around the house without finding him under your feet begging for a tummy scratch! He is a super well-behaved boy, and has been no trouble whatsoever. We still cannot get over how lucky we are! He gets on well with our cat, who likes to get in on any ball-fetching action. Mostly this involves hiding in wait for Stormy to pass by, then jumping out and chasing him! This does not deter Stormy's love of ball-fetching, although after a few runs, he learns to go the long way round to avoid the cat 8)

Stormy also loves going for his walks, especially when he can be off the lead to explore where he likes and make any detours into the water

another great love of his we are discovering! We took him to a dog-beach a few weekends ago where he was on the go the whole afternoon, swimming and fetching

needless to say he slept well that night! Anyway, we just wanted to say thank you so much (especially Becky) for allowing Stormy to become part of our family

we really don't know what we'd do without him. Sarah

Stormy was adopted on 29/9/07 after 2 weeks in foster care.
