Bryan Update

Bryan 2

It’s been a whole year since our boy Bryn adopted us as his humans, and what a wonderful year it has been! We cannot thank ISR&R enough for the support they provided, right from placing Bryn with us and through the little bumps in the road. We’re aware of how lucky we are to have been gifted such a gentle, kind and loving boy into our family, but now that he’s here we couldn’t imagine a life without him… He’s even grown on the cats! As you can see, he has us wrapped around his little paw and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you to all of the team in ISR&R, you helped complete our family just that bit more! Love and slobbery kisses, The Cooks x
