Allie - 8 week old terrier x**HOMED**

Postby ColganFamily » Thu Oct 04, 2012 1:57 pm

Meet Ali. Ali is our latest house guest and what a sweetie she is. :D She arrived (courtesy of Colette, thank you) here yesterday and proceeded to make herself right at home. She wasn't remotely fazed by meeting the canine mob here - down on the floor and in the thick of things right away! :lol: :lol: And she is only tiny!!! She is full of attitude and answers you back when you speak to her. Her tail NEVER stops wagging and it is obvious that she hasn't had any bad experiences in her short little life from either dogs or people. As the family arrived home last night, each one was greeted rapturously with total confidence that "hey, I live here now, nice to meet ya!!!". I reckon Ali will be small to medium when she is fully grown. She will be wormed, microchipped and have at least her first vax before being rehomed. She must be neutered at 6 months old. :D :D :D

This little lady is a pure joy to foster. :D :D For such a young puppy, she is remarkably composed and self-sufficient - she happily mixes it with the other dogs when there is a game going on but she is just as happy finding a toy and taking it off for a chew and a play all by herself!!! :lol: :lol: She gives out LOADS to anyone who will listen and last night, when Casper had a teddy she wanted, she stamped and barked and jumped until he dropped it - then she grabbed it and ran!! :lol: :lol: She is a real girlie girl and gravitates towards our two ladies, Mollie and Tigra all the time - we think she sleeps with Molly. On the subject of sleep, Ali has spent two nights with us now and there hasn't been a whimper out of her - again remarkable for one so young. She is eating great and has learned to beg for the human food that is constantly being sought by the Colgan canines!! A real treasure. :D :D :D

This gorgeous little lady is going from strength to strength. :D :D She has continued to be a very confident, feisty little girl with absolutely NO issues whatsoever - remarkable for a puppy found wandering! She just adores life and everything and everyone in it. She is in the thick of EVERYTHING here and even tries to boss the permanent residents - both human and canine - around. Her tail is constantly wagging, there is nothing she won't chew (or try to anyway!! :lol: ), she gives back loads of cheek if things aren't going her way and we all just LOVE her!!! :D :D With NO work from me, she is rapidly cracking the toilet training, she is eating well, she loves the car, loves her cuddles and sleeps all night without a peep. She is a truly remarkable, together puppy just waiting for her own happy ever after. :D :D

Imagine letting me slip to page 2!!! Allie continues to grow and thrive - she has gone from 3kgs to 5 kgs in just over two weeks. At this rate, she will be a mastiff by the spring! :lol: :lol: Only joking - the mastiff is ALL in Allie's head (well established there though, I assure you!!!) She is growing into a real beauty, eating well, sleeping well. She has discovered that the key to Pandora's box in this house is to sit - so whenever she wants something, she sits patiently and stares at you till you relent and give it to her (tail wagging furiously the whole time!!! :lol: :lol: )
This little lady had an eventful week. She was microchipped :( and had her first vax from the lovely Ciara down in Terenure vets and she was incredibly brave ( as the girlies always are!!!). She is going from strength to strength and is patiently waiting here in my madhouse for her very own happy ever after. :D :D

Well our beautiful little lady went visiting today and ended up finding a truly wonderful forever family of her own!!! :D :D Aside from the humans, she will have a lovely big sister, Dolly, who she had great fun with today. The house has a fab garden and I know that our gorgeous Allie will be SO happy in her new home.
All the best, my fab little girl. :D :D :D

This morning, I dropped our little Allie-cat up to her new home. :( :D :( :D (mixed emotions here!!! :lol: ) Her new sister, Dolly, was THRILLED to see her again and the game resumed right where it left off on Thursday. The passing over was so easy because as I have consistently said, Allie is so self-assured and cocky that any move will be taken in her stride - of that I am sure. When I left, she was exploring the back garden and there wasn't a backward glance from Allie - plenty from me though! :( :( This is such a good home for her and I really look forward to loads of updates as Allie grows in size, strength and beauty. Have the happiest of "happy ever afters", sweetheart! :D :D :D
