She has taken off and is in the air somewhere over Turkey Very Happy
Got sent little video of plane taxing down runway and it made me cry
Crying or Very sad donít know why. Just the thought of all those abused and neglected little ones going off to loving forever homes. Wonít sleep a wink tonight there are a number coming over as planes were grounded due to Covid.

God speed little ones xxxx

Think I am excited as you are!! Very Happy She has no idea of what is in store for her in the very near future and I am sure she will settle very quickly once she gets that 'safe and comfortable' feeling.

Oh Gerrie, I have just caught up with your very exciting news.

How wonderful for you and little Lucy. No doubt there may be small hurdles while she is settling in with you, but I wish you both much love and joy together.

Xxx

Thinking of you today, Gerrie, as this is the day your little Lucy is coming home. Can't wait to hear ("read"!) about the encounter (lots of tears, I bet!) and the first few hours together. Maybe you have already met at this time of day!!!!

Well .. she went thru the night sleeping in the bedroom with us. She is just love on a stick, so affectionate and demonstrative. I donít think she is much older than 14 months or so. Energy doesnít describe her Shocked
She is food obsessed and it vanishes in seconds. She has spent her young life starved so food and love are really valued by her. I will send Mark some pics soon but really need to go onto off topic.
She needs house training but that will come. Very Happy

I was wondering how her first nifgt went, thanks for the news Gerrie!

If she is as young as you think she is, Lucy may overcome her food obsession (which is understandable, of course, due to her past life). Miss You was 3 years old when she joined me and Foxie, and had had to fight to get her fair share of food during those first 3 years and so she remained a very fast eater all her life - she ate absolutely everything I gave her down to the last crumb, and then emitted a noisy belch!

Have sent a couple of quick pics to Mark.

Mollie doesnít seem bothered once she had sniffed her butt.
Lucy doesnít show her teeth but twice has shown she is nervous of Moll but only twice. She got a little possessive with a toy so we put it up for now.
She has had to fend for herself so to be expected. We are thrilled to bits with her. Very Happy
