We welcome Jane and Neil with Ginny and Mary to the blog
Ginny is my second bedlington. She was one when we got her, she is now three. My husband Neil and I saw her advertised in the paper.The man who sold her to us used her for hunting and I don't think she lived up to his expectations. She lived in a kennel with two other older bedlingtons and we think she was bullied. She was (and still is) a little timid. She did not like men at all in the beginning but now she is fine with most visitors. We had to get all her hair cut off when we brought her home as she had been lying in wet blankets for I don't know how long. The skin on her back end was in a terrible mess. To this day she will not step out in the rain, and she absolutely loves the fire and will lie in front of it for ages. We had an old cat (Toby) when we brought Ginny home and we just kept them separate for a week or so and they were fine together. Sadly Toby died of old age. We then got a new kitten (Mary) and Ginny absolutely loves her, they get on great. Ginny is a lovely dog considering what she had been through in her earlier life she has turned into the most loving companion, she is very special to us..
What a lovely story and this photo just says everything, again this great photo would make another fantastic entry for the BTA calendar competition.
