Over the years in Korea we accomplished a lot. We had a lot of different experiences, some of which were heartbreaking and others which were intensely rewarding and fulfilling.
When we went to the shelter to adopt Piper we had no idea that we would end up going back to the UK with five animals and three of them cats. But, we left with five animals and took them all home. We left with Piper our original dog and Baker our second rescue and then our three cats which weren’t adopted.
We ended up with a full house, it wasn’t always clean and tidy but it was a house filled with love and laughter and so rewarding.
The following passed through our doors, some never leaving:
Piper- Still living with us at home. She is loved and cherished by our family and very much part of the furniture.
Baker- Still at home with us, mothering all our animals and providing us all with love and laughs.
Clover- Living with her family in South Korea, she now has two younger siblings and a doggy sister.
Chandler- Incredibly spoilt in the USA with a stay at home dog mum and two doggy brothers.
Harper- Living the dream in the USA, swimming and traveling on his private boat with his new mum and dad.
Ryder- Living in the USA and staying with his new mum.
Baxter- Having lived in Korea with his new family he has since moved about 15minutes away from where I was brought up in the UK.
Hope- Living in the USA with lots of brothers and sisters and being spoilt at every opportunity. She has an extended family which adore her and she is HUGE! She’s grown up big and beautiful.
