Lemon and Lime

8th Feb 2022

It’s the news that I’m sure you’ve all been waiting for. Our two beautiful, brave and gentle girls, Lemon and Lime have made it home. These two girls were found huddled together under a hedge, the abuse and neglect they had suffered etched all over their bodies, their suffering clearly seen in their eyes. But despite all this, their little tails wagged as they were loaded onto our van. After their initial shyness and mistrust wore off what emerged was simply two of the kindest, gentlest, most forgiving souls you could ever meet. They soon started to blossom and it was our joy to watch as they ran around our fields at Heathlawn.

When it was time to start looking for a new home we had lots of wonderful home enquiries but there was one that stood out for us. Pauline and Rose are two sisters who had sadly lost their previous dogs Lily and Lucy and when they spotted our girls, they truly felt as though Lily and Lucy had sent them into Lemon and Limes path and they had fell instantly in love. Living in scenic Wicklow beside the lakes, a homecheck was done and soon a very excited Pauline and Rose were on their way to Heathlawn. Who couldn’t fall in love with Lemon and Lime? Pauline and Rose certainly did.

It has been over a week since we waved goodbye to two girls that we loved deeply. We hear they are having a great time exploring the lakes and hills of Wicklow, that they have had a pamper day and are spending their evenings chilling in front of the fire or cuddled up next to their mums.

We really couldn’t have asked for a better ending to what had been a sad and sorry start to their journey. We thank you for your support from the moment we posted their photos and story. Your generosity, kindness and compassion blew us away and we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

There is no greater feeling in rescue than that of waving goodbye to our dogs, as they peer at us out the back window when they set off on the start of something beautiful, than knowing that we were there to get them through their darkest days. Lemon, Lime, Pauline and Rose, we wish you so much happiness and love together and we thank you for giving two girls the most wonderful of homes ❤#adoptdontshop#rescuedog#kindnessmatters#springerspanielsofinstagram#lovelifelivelife
