This is Sadie, my Dad's new dog. She was rescued from a tricky situation by a relative, and was totally filthy and flea infested when they got her, as well as not being able to walk properly as her back legs were very weak. (Due, they think, to the fact that she was never exercised). Three weeks on and she is a different dog. When I went to see them last Saturday, she spent the whole time (apart from when we ate lunch!) on my lap, eventually falling asleep. She is a lovely dog, so affectionate and sweet. Her fur is so soft and silky. She is a Bichon Frise. Wickipedia describes them as having a 'merry disposition' and she has!
