“Winnie flew to Sweden with us on 25th August 2003.
I first saw Winnie on the Dogs Aid website and after making enquiries about her, I was told that Winnie had been at the sanctuary for quite a long time. I was absolutely delighted when Maggie and the girls agreed to let us adopt Winnie.
We decided to fly to Dublin and spend time getting to know Winnie, before taking her to her new home in Sweden. We spend a week in Dublin and had Winnie to stay with us for most of that time, we had a lovely time getting to know her and knew then that Winnie would fit into our family very well. We already have two whippets, David and Annbert.
Everything is working so smoothly and it is wonderful to see how Winnie shows more and more of her personality. She is quite silly at times and I expect her to be full of mischief and quite industrious when she has settled. She is so very civilized; it is hard to imagine she has had such a different like before we got her. She sleeps in the bed with the rest of us, she is clean, she can be left without any problems and she is generally very well behaved. She loves the water and throws herself in it whenever she gets the chance. She is not swimming but she goes in upto her neck and even puts herwhole head under the water trying to sniff things at the bottom.
I wish you could see how she is developing, it is so rewarding and she is such a wonderful girl. She really makes us very happy.”
