    Well, not really but it was 12 month today since we adopted her from the Rescue centre.

    The vet thought she was only about 8 or 9 weeks old at that time. So it is today that we are spoiling her rotten (not much change there then) and getting her a nice meaty bone to chew on and possibly a Doggie Beer later!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHANCE!

    Good idea DT - I have a few of her as a very young pup, and plenty since. I'll upload a few and link them later.

    And this will be about 4 months ago:

    A bit more recent, and Chance proving that the floor is suddenly not very flat??? She still doesn't move though!

    This is a picture I HOPED I would never see:

    And this is another:

    Fortunately though, this is another I thought I would never see. Taken last week:

    There are a few more on that site including her reading the local online news!

    Hey everyone - thank you all very much for the lovely comments. It truely is a great community feel on here.

    Chance has had a great day today. I went to the Supermarket this morning leaving her at home, however before I was back my OH went out and so put Chance in her kennel run.

    She normally only goes in there if we are leaving her for 4 hours + and so when I came home an hour later there was a look of total disbelief on her face!!!

    She has spent the afternoon chewing the largest bone I could find, switching between the sun and the shade.

    She is now asleep on the lawn and doesn't have a care in the world!

    Happy birthday Chance.
    She looks a lot like my Josie (who is a Springer x lab and 3 years old)
    Chance has a lovely glossy coat too!!

    TBH we originally thought 'she' was a boy! When we chose her, she was in quarantine at the rescue centre and we couldn't pet her. We just took their word and said we would collect her a few days later. We then decided on the name and only when we collected her did we find out her sex! We decided, that although Chance is typically a boys name it kinda suited her and so it stuck.

    She ran past this bin:

    Picasa Web Albums

    Picasa Web Albums

    and caught her leg on the sharp edge, snapping her thigh.
