JOSIE & MICA – NOVEMBER 2016

On 15th September 2016, I became the proud new owner of Josie and Mica, 2 gorgeous black Labradors, a mum and daughter aged 10 and 8. I have been waiting for a long time to be in the right position to give dogs a home and having bought my own home earlier in the year was […]

SASHA – NOVEMBER 2016

‘ We would like to thank The Labrador Rescue Trust for finding us our little ray of sunshine. We adopted Sasha on the 6th October 2008 when she was nearly 9 months old, but sadly lost her at the young age of 8 this week. She was such a character and everyone who met her […]

SOPHIE – NOVEMBER 2016

We thought we would share some memories of our beautiful black lab Sophie (originally Josie), who we got from the Labrador Trust 12 years ago, in October 2004. When she first arrived she was very anxious, but she soon found her confidence and came into her own, chasing deer over the forest and even going […]

SOPHIE – SEPTEMBER 2016

We adopted Sophie in 2006 aged 2 years old. She was complete with a soon due litter of puppies! Puppies born and homed. Sophie is now 12 & half and still our No 1 . She obviously did the job of convincing us to love Labs as we  are now on No 5! She keeps […]

MAC – SEPTEMBER 2016

CONNIE – SEPTEMBER 2016

Connie arrived with us 27th January 2007 just after her fifth birthday. When we had met her earlier that month at Liskeard we thought she was the prettiest bitch we had seen over many years of contact with Labradors and were not going to pass on the opportunity of keeping her. Connie had obviously been […]

LOLLY – AUGUST 2016

Here is Lolly who joined us in 2010 just before she was 2. Lolly is the most loving and soft dog you could imagine, there isn’t a bad bone in her body, she adores attention and small children. She would dearly love to be fat, her roll call of foods “opportunistically acquired” include numerous loaves, […]

PADDY – JULY 2016

Paddy – 10 years together and still going strong Frances and I have been Paddy’s partners (rather than owners) for almost 10 years now and he has brought us so much joy and pleasure. I work from home and Paddy spends all day with me in my home office. The day after we got him […]

OAKLEY – MARCH 2016

I thought we would send you this photo of Oakley who we adopted back in Jan 2008, taken today in sunny Cornwall. He is 10 this year but still loves life and would go swimming everyday if he could. He loves the surf and on many occasion he is the only dog in the water!!!! Still spoilt […]

MILO – FEBRUARY 2016

Many LRT Members will probably remember Maddie, (Tripod) because of her missing back leg which she lost at the age of six because of cancer. In July 2015 she came second in the Veteran class at the Westonzoyland LRT Fun Day. Sadly we had to lose Maddie, as suddenly she was falling frequently and having […]
