I am too excited! On Sunday we will be meeting Lola – the new addition to our family! Lola is 10 month old terrier-cross from Many Tears Animal Rescue and we cannot wait to meet her!
When I was a child, I remember regularly asking my parents “Can we get a dog?” and them responding “You can get a dog when you have your own house”. Well, the time has come.
Friends and family encouraged use to get a rescue dog, and many times I have trawled the Dogs Trust website, or the Many Tears Facebook page, but so often they recommend rehousing with other dogs (which we don’t have).
But then I saw Lola. Previously known as Lushious (spelt incorrectly) her foster carer has fortunately renamed her Lola. Since she’s still a puppy and doesn’t seem to have had a troubled past (as so many dogs from Many Tears have) they were happy to re-home her with us.
There has been quite a process to secure her, including an online application, a telephone call, a chat with her foster carer and a home visit, but the staff and volunteers at Many Tears do such a great job, and have all been so helpful.
Finally on Sunday we get to go and meet her, and hopefully take her home! I feel like an excited child!
We may find that there are many more blog posts about Lola in the future…
