I thought I’d introduce you to a really nice little soul whohas come into my life recently.
Her name is Gyp and she is about six months old. She came tothe farm where the sanctuary is situated as a trainee! She came from a ratherrough farm some miles away where the dogs obviously get no attention but aswipe from a stick when they do something (such as living) that the farmer doesnot like. Poor little Gyp was terrified when she arrived so everyone at the Trustbegan to offer her love and cuddles. Although still inclined to cringe at loudnoises or if anyone moves too sharply near her, she is settling down and isalready starting to work with the sheep.
She loves to come into our office for a love
And a few tit bits!
Isn't she pretty?
God gave us two ears and one mouth for a very good reason!
Gorgeous little hound!

We had a giant Airedale when I were a kid.It was called Gyp.Just hearing the name has brought back many fond memories.So edgebander sends his best wishes to Gyp & all who dote on her.
In reply to edgebander:
So pleased Gyp has found a loving home, will she stay with you Jenni? I'm sure she will return the love 2 fold.
In reply to Maria:
maria p said:will she stay with you Jenni?
No Maria she will live at the farm where the Trust is based and work with the farmer there who treats his dogs well. However the three of us volunteerswho have been making afuss of her will always be her "safe" people and our office a place where she can come for the softer bits of life. She adores the young dog, Colin, who belongs to one of us and the pair of them get up to all sorts of awfulness - you can get wonderfully mucky on a farm!!
In reply to Birdie Wild:
What a lovely tale for a cold Friday evening!
In reply to bob's_retired_now:
Mm-mm. He thinks he's a blank sheet of paper waiting for something to be drawn on it!!
In reply to Jenni Morgan:
It is good to offer a helping hand to those in distress and the rewards cannot be counted.
In reply to John Hancock:
Brilliant, what a lovely dog, so pleased she has found a good home :)
