Twilight: ensuring a dog’s last memory is of being loved


Twilight News


Meet the new kids on the block

Beauty as in the sleeping Beauty. She really is just plain beautifully, a Beauty. Fifteen years old, and arrived jolly tired from her mighty journey. This Romanian princess has been on our waiting list for months and months, thanks to the patience and care of the wonderful Association Orfee. Beauty has joined us from a refuge of 1300 dogs!

Another Romanian stunner, from the same refuge as Beauty – imagine, 1300 dogs! Again, Amber had been on the list for many months, and is also 15 years of age. She was not as relaxed as dear Beauty, and her hair needed a goodly seeing to, but with time, the confidence of this older lady is clearly growing. We have named her Amber after the beautiful precious stone of golden colour. You are most welcome little lady, and thank you Orfee for making all this possible.

Featuring our Twilight Outreach Team

Great news about some of our Twilight Outreach dogs. We’ve just welcomed Dougal and Ted to the Twilight team. Thanks go to mums Karen and Kate. Dear Sam is still loving his world. Blind and as deaf as a post, his life with auntie Anne is delicious. He sleeps a lot, but when awake, he has him a gentle trundle around the garden and he can’t wait for the sun to come out so his siestas can return under his favourite tree. He can find his way into the warm TV room to join the gang for cuddles if he is in the mood. Life is good, chicken dinners are a yum, and he loves cuddling close to his mum.

Then, we’ve had a lovely photo from Linda. Do you remember dear blind Farley, a very timid Twilighter who really struggled with confidence? Well, Linda and Max fell in love and not only renamed her Harley, but spent painstaking hours getting their little girl to feel complete within herself. They have done a fantastic job. Here she is, having a snug snoring session here with her chum the puss.
