Tilly was found on Christmas Eve in a cardboard box which also contained her puppy and another small xbred male white male dog (father?) outsdide a supermarket next to a river. They were all terrified -taken to a local rescue kennels .near my home speaking to the head kennel maid I visited finding that the other 2 had gone to homes .Tilly was cowering in a pen on her own very miserable .matted fur and very thin . Vet thinks she was only a year old herself .5 years on and she is twice the weight and very healthy and happy . apart from nervousness around small children and an exstatic boucing about when we have curry or any ready meal ! I feel all 3 maybe survived on scraps and leftovers. I had to have the vet clean her teeth as they were in very bad condition.and very sensetive . At least she can now enjoy play pulling games .She also has a very fine wooly type coat that shows skin through when she is bathed so feels the cold inwinter but hates having a coat put on -i wonder if the children in her previous home dressed her up to play ?-a guess on my part .
I am feeling a bit sudued as my friend is not here any more. I am getting a lot of cuddles tho' and some extra treats Ii am getting used to going out for walks without my friend Tanzey .but am a bit shy with other dogs .i have started to go for long walks with my Mum with lots of other people and dogs and feel OK doing that,as before,-Tanzey didnt want to go very far when we went out togehter .
