"I was up last night looking and Pat told me a fair number of people have been asking after Cocoa, the springer spaniel who was on the page earlier this year after failing as a gun dog. She came to us as a very nervy little creature, who was scared witless, having obviously been beaten at some point. I'm delighted to say that she's really coming out of her shell now, she is showered with affection and comes with me where ever I go! She gets on very well with other dogs, especially our 10-month old Lab Poppy (also from Deise Animal Sanctuary) although can still be nervy and skittish around other humans. She's a gorgeous young dog and I can't imagine being without her! Tim."
