I spotted Isca or Honey as she was then late on a Thursday evening on the Dogs Trust Basildon website , the moment they opened Friday morning I was on the phone asking to meet her ,we met just after 12 and it was love at first sight , she’s a giant fluffy bear who loves to hold hands I told my other half , you have to meet her . We returned that evening , my partner his daughter and my son , took her for a walk and that was that . Two more visits and an information session and the following Friday she came “home “ . We have had one or two small hurdles but she was right away part of the family and fabulous with my grandchildren . If you look up stubborn in the dictionary there’s a photo of her , but that’s all part of her appeal , she’s a gentle , strong willed giant and we adore her .
