    We have had Mia for 10 months since she was 16 months old bless her. My last dog came as a pup and we had her for 17 years. Being a rescue Mia has taught me more about dogs in the 10 months than I ever knew before.

    We got our first dog Zoe when my our children were 1 & 3, she was part of our family for just over 14 years when she passed and we were all totally devastated at her loss. At first we didn't want another but after 6 months we still felt empty, we then got Harvey as a pup who is now nearly 4 and then we got Willow also as a pup who will soon be 2.

    We went from just owning one to now having 2 and they have all been a special part of our family whom we wouldn't want to be without.

    I got Jet from the local rescue in October 07 when he was approx 4. I owe this little one a lot, I think he rescued me.
    I just can't imagine how things would have gone if he hadn't come into my life when he did.
