Sad and Happy News.
Now for the happy part. I have always had a dog since I was a baby in a pram and I couldn’t see myself without another mate. So I started to look at the rescued dog pages, so many poor dogs in need of a new furever home through no fault of their own.
We settled on going to see a young (about 6 months) black Kelpie, she had been mistreated and was so skinny. The previous owners had called her Flo of all names, we didnt like that and the day after we got her we were sitting saying how skinny she was and that she was a Skinny Minnie……hence she became Minnie.This is her when we got her….poor thing. She was slow to put on weight as she was so active…….nothing she liked better than chasing dragonflies around the pool.
Well about 2 months later I was still looking at the rescue sites and I found a Labrador that needed a furever home , he had always been tied up in the back yard and he needed some love and affection. He was the opposite of Minnie , he was fat through lack of exercise, he was about 17 months old. This is him the day after he came to us.Meet Hugo, so like Morgan but a different shaped head.
The two of them get along fine and love a play fight. I look forward to many happy hours in the garden with them this year. First job, when I am fit enough, is to replant the fern garden they have destroyed.
But dogs will be dogs and I couldn’t live without one, gardens can always be repaired.
Now I have mastered the blog I have to write one and tell you why I am a Frangiholic.
