Thank you for your quick response but obviously I am disappointed I can't do anything to recover my outlay and feel that during this whole process I was the only one taking a risk, clearly a foolish one. So despite the kennel being part of the agreement they can do whatever they want without any consequences and simply leave us with a financial burden. This has also left my mental heath at risk, for which may simply deteriorate. Anyway I have copied below the email correspondence about choosing us.
Thank you again,
We have undertaken a lot of thought and consideration, especially whether we're ready to take on any more dogs, being that we should of been celebrating the first year with our previous Springers. And after much deliberation I can clearly update you on our position, which is that yes we are ready and very committed to offering a good home to two more dogs.
Any fears or worries we may have had were easily overcome by meeting the both of you and seeing your beautiful, healthy & very well trained Springers but now my only worry is whether we can convince you we're the right people for Flute & Lily.
Over the past two days I have researched and seen hundreds of kennels & runs, making a shortlist of about 40 within a price range of around £250-£600. Obviously we wouldn't have a run as big as yours but I'd want the kennel section to be very similar and would be very grateful to know the size of your kennel section. Although in the long term I want to introduce them to the house I am very committed to purchasing a suitable kennel & run, I would hope to make a choice and place an order when I get paid on Thursday, I've come round to the benefits of an outdoor kennel.
I realise I might not of seemed enthusiastic but I am very different in a familiar environment, where I have no fear of being watched and can interact with the dogs naturally. I can see they need plenty of exercise and It certainly does not concern me how dirty they get, as I work outdoors and I'm always caked in mud. Also it is clear being such intelligent dogs they deserve lots of attention and stimulation.
I really hope you will both see our commitment and we would feel very lucky to be given the chance to provide a home to Flute & Lily.
All the best,
Thank you for getting back to us, it was lovely yo meet you both at the weekend. Graham and I have discussed your email and we think you would be able to offer a great home to flute and Lily.
I think it will initially be quite a change for them but I feel that you will be committed to working with them to adapt to their new home.
I will measure the kennel size and let you know.
If you would like to come down again at the weekend or mon/tues with your mum to get to know them more and take them for a walk that would ok.
I hope this is good news for you both. I know that Graham and I will miss them but I think this is in the best interests of the dogs.
