Hi everyone I just wanted to start a blog of some of the dog stories I’ve experienced as a dog owner, foster of rescue dogs and the rescue dog I adopted myself.
Also friends and families dogs past and present will be included too.
Funny stories, sad stories but everything dog related.
Every breed will be welcome, pedigree or mixed , it doesn’t matter as long as they have waggy tails!
There will be informative content too, including health and behavior issues and all about the process of rescuing a dog or buying a puppy from a breeder.
But first of all I wanted to share a poem with you about Alfie who sadly passed away on 5th April 2017.
Let me tell you a little about Alfie first
Alfie was a Cavalier King Charles spaniel crossed with a Shihtzu. We needed a companion for our older dog and researched the temperaments of these breeds. We found out that both breeds were loyal, caring , affectionate and sweet-natured.
Well Alfie didn’t disappoint. He was all of those things…….and more!
He soon became a soul mate for our older dog but more importantly he took on the role of nurturer to all the rescue dogs who came through our door. I called him my ‘wingman’ because he took care of the canine side of fostering whilst I did the human stuff. He would share his bed, his toys even his mum with whoever came to stay there were no exceptions. He seemed to know that the foster dogs didn’t have privileges like he did. And when they all moved on he still had his soul mate Holly and later Mr Darcy the dachshund, but that’s a whole different story!
Here is Alfie’s poem
