“Just wanted to let you know how Kim has come along since we got her. Firstly, she has put on lots of weight and filled out nicely. She has stopped spinning all the time, although there are still a few things that set her off such as the Hoover, but she stops when asked to.
Her favourite thing to do in the whole world is to swim down at the beach… she gets so excited and loves to jump about in the water, this has helped her coat come along and she really does look a different dog.
Best of all is the fact that she is not as anxious as she was before and to see her look happy and wag her tail is just great. After a good long walk on the beach she just collapses in the telly room and goes to sleep, this took months to happen as she was too anxious to sleep before and moved at every little noise.
She is also very selfish and teases anyone that dare go near her toys in the back garden. Her two footballs and a squeaky bone are just for her to play with and while she will tease us with them (bang them against your leg, or drop them in front of you), we can only touch if it’s for tug-of-war.
For the few months we have had her, I have never seen a dog so accident prone. FIrstly she swallowed a small stick which stuck in her throat and she was rushed to the vet but luckily it came out in the waiting room with no harm done. Then she got a bee sting on her head and she had an allergic reaction to, again off to the vet and we had to rub cream into where she was stuck for about two weeks. Next she was unfortunate enough to get some kind of infection which had her poorly for a few days but a few injections later and she was happier than ever.
Kim really is a different dog now. She has a bit of a following now on the beach as some other dog owners were curious at the start as to why she was so skinny and kept spining. Everyone is so happy she has turned out so well. She also has one or two friends, especially on black collie she loves to chase (but has never caught!)”
