SolarWe went to Derby to collect 'Tara' as she was known - we have renamed her Solar.

Unfortunately, she had lots of issues, didn't know what a lead or toy was and she was very jumpy, every time someone moved she would jump up as if not knowing what she was expected to do- its been hard work, but very rewarding to see the dog she has become, to see her sleeping peacefully while we bustle about around her, gives us such satisfaction to know she can finally relax as she should be able to - she's beautiful and we love her so much - she's very comical too and we don't need an alarm clock as when she thinks the time is right, she just puts her head under the duvet to push it off me to get up, once I am up, she then goes back to her bed!

She's fantastic with children, but again, this has taken time but she is very gentle.  Everyone who sees her says how gorgeous she is and what lovely condition she is in, including our vet!  My husband is into astronomy, hence her name and the collar, the company we bought the collar from thought she was so beautiful they have the following picture on their website!  This truly is a testament to how far she has come - although she could never replace Zulu, she certainly gave us a focus which helped fill a massive void and our hearts!

Sadly through her past there are parts of her character that will never leave her, but we understand her and wouldn't be without her, she has brought us so much joy - its sad to think that there are people who don't treat animals as they should be treated, but on the positive side, if Solar's previous owners had been better, we would never have got to have her in our lives!
