My new little Opshopping friend.

I'd like you to meet the newest member of the Hunter family :)
This is Betty!

Just look at that face would you!

She was rescued by 'The Animal Rehoming Service' or TARS which is a non profit animal rescue service in Melbourne, who does an amazing job rescuing neglected animals and finding them great homes.

She's had a hard life, but it all got better when TARS rescued her from a bad home, and fostered her out to the owners of Fat Helens Vintage shop on Chapel St.
Helen and her Family did the most amazing job bringing back Betty's personality (and boy does she have one!), giving her a loving home, and doing so until the right person was ready to adopt her.

I think it was meant to be!
I mean a dog brought up in a Vintage shop? Surely she'll fit right in at my home :)
And she does. She's currently sprawled out on the floor like she's been here for years, and this is only day two!

We had the most fun game of fetch earlier. She gets so excited runs on her hind legs, smiling away, darting after the ball like her life depends on it! What a darling dog.

If you have time, space, and a heart filled with love to give, call TARS, or go to any dog shelter/pound and adopt a dog who really needs a home. And don't just think about puppies, adopt a dog! They have just as much love, and they're often already trained and ready to go!

Next week Betty and I will be heading out on our first opshopping trip! I can't wait.

Trish and Betty :)
