HOLLY HAS GONE TO RAINBOW BRIDGE (1.3.2016)
Sue gave us the very sad news "It's with a very heavy heart I have to tell you that our beautiful golden girl Holly
We adopted her in 2007 to be a big sister to Milly (formerly known as Jordon).
Holly didn't suffer. When we took her to the vets, a blood test showed her kidneys were failing and we were
She went for her walk in the morning and had her breakfast a couple of hours later but I knew she was not
Holly was so special to Alan and I and, of course, Milly. In all those years, they only ever spent one day apart,
Keep doing what you do. You are all brilliant".
IRR are so grateful for the wonderful life Holly enjoyed and what a lovely peaceful end. It was perfect for her
For sure, Holly will be happy and young again now at Rainbow Bridge and will be reunited with her old next
Fly free with all the other Golden angels, Holly
Holly is a 3 year old spayed bitch who gets on well with other dogs and cats. She was surrendered to us as she was worrying sheep. She needed a bit of training on the lead.
Holly was with Sandie in Ireland and as you can see from the photo, she was enjoying the company of some of Sandies dogs. Holly is the one in the middle. The other dogs belong to Sandie and were not for rehoming!!
When Holly arrived in the UK she was microchipped. She was fostered by Jackie in Hampshire. Jackie, said "She is settling in well. Holly is very well behaved, housetrained and went through the night OK. I am walking her on the lead and she is gradually pulling less. I think she would be off after any wildlife if she got the chance."
Holly is now happily settled in her new home with Hampshire. She has Millie (who was Jordan, another IRR dog) as a playmate.
UPDATE DEC 09
Well it’s been a long time since the last update & the girls are so good, it is the first time that we have had two dogs at the same time & it’s brilliant no different to one except they play & run around together more than with us.
Surprise, surprise no real problems, Holly will run a fair distance from us but always comes back when called (we think she must have been quite well trained at some point as she responds to commands well although she did get a little nervous at first if she thought she had been naughty so she may have been treated roughly in the past) while Millie still plays and runs around like a puppy, never goes far as she knows where the treats are and will always come for them, she has been so easy to train.
We have been so lucky with the girls as there is no aggression in either, Holly is very quiet and only barks when excited and other dogs are playing whilst Millie makes up for it and lets you know when there is some one around or at the door.
However neither bother with the squirrels when they come into the garden and feed on the nut holders, only sit or lay and watch much the same with the birds as well which is good.
Holly & Millie send their love to everybody and look forward to seeing you all again soon.
