Let me introduce you to Maisie and Lucy.
Rhiannon and her former partner owned a couple of dogs. When they split up it was agreed that the dogs would live with Ben but Rhiannon would have them every other weekend. As she is living with us while her new house is being renovated the dogs come to us. I absolutely love having them to stay. I always said that when we retire we’d have another dog, and perhaps we will, but for now this shared custody agreement suits very well.
The dogs are sisters from the same litter of border collie/black labrador cross, but are very different in character. Both are very affectionate and whilst Maisie is clever and quick to learn, Lucy is more scatty and definitely a slow learner. Lucy will chase anything whereas Maisie will calculate her chances of getting it before Lucy and only chases when the odds are in her favour! Maisie prefers sticks but Lucy loves the frisbee.
