been thinking of contacting you for some time as I still have your number
in my phone after 11 years. We have one of your dogs, Winnie (Basswood
Winnifred – After Winnie Mandella you told me).
was born on 14/02/2003 in a large litter, I think you said 15. We actually
had her sister, Basswood Oribi – 'Sadie', but unfortunately Sadie died
in her sleep aged just 11 ½ months and heartbroken we approached
you about the situation. You gave it some thought and offered us a replacement.
Now at the time you assured us that the replacement was a near identical
dog. It was rather odd however when we came to pick up Winnie, as she was
a tiny little black lab and Sadie had been a big Sandy coloured girl! So
with both of my daughters, then 6 and 18 months, we set off in the car
back to our home. You had explained that Winnie had never really seen children
and had never been in a house for any length of time, as she was kept in
the kennel with the other dogs. Having brought her home she settled instantly
and fell in with everyday life. She has turned out to be the most amazingly
wonderful companion and is so gentle that all who meet her greet her and
can recognise how lovely she is. I am really writing to say a huge thankyou
for permitting us to have her through her long, healthy and happy life.
She has been a privilege to own and we appreciate what a fantastically
well-bred dog she is. She continues to have great enthusiasm for life’s
pleasures of walking and eating, in equal measures and I hope she is with
us for a few more years.
have considered bringing home a new companion for her as she is a very
sociable girl and enjoys mixing with all the other dogs in our family.
We will be in touch with you again whenever we choose to bring home a new
