Very interested to hear all about you Cassie (weird using that name but not in relation to my Cassie). Will have to call you Cassie Too (as in 'as well', not second to :? you know what I mean). You look like a nice (smaller) medium-sized dog? I will lie in wait to hear all about you ;)

See your :? sister :? is reserved. I would love to get hold of a brush and brush your coat out. You have probably been bathed and brushed by now by your foster family. Hope you are OK :D

Exactly how I felt the other day as she was leaving the pound............give me a brush....quick. :roll:
It drives me mad when it would only take a few mins a week but I suppose when we are dealing with dogs coming in with skin infections, eye infections, emaciated, scared a brush is the least of their worries....so sad :cry:

You are quite right Twist, it is so sad that so many great dogs end up in such a situation at the hands of man :( Thank goodness for the likes of you and all the others who work so hard on behalf of all the dogs.

I agree, all the dogs coats seem to be in terrible condition lately :roll: some of these poor dogs have never seen a brush in their lives before and are not used to being handled much by humans either so they find the brush and the handling absolutely terrifying. :o it's not always easy to groom dogs that are fearful so you have to be extremely careful and patient.

Hi all! Sorry for late reply. Little Cassie is a sweet little thing indeed. In need of lot of training. She is a very affectionate dog but will need to learn how to interact with dogs and humans too. She doesn't have a clue how to play with toys yet. When we got her, the poor thing was walking as on ice on our wooden floors and was petrified of being in the house. She is house-trained now so that's a big progress and is learning new things every day. E.g. she is getting very good on the lead as she is a very clever little girl :) She is washed and groomed now, but so lively that it's very difficult to take pictures of her :) I will update with more details on Cassie as soon as possible. By the way, we call her Sorcha here in the house as her she responds to it better so maybe her previous name was something similar? And also we found out that 'Sorcha' means a princess in Hebrew so we call her that and her recall is improving every day :)
