New beginnings

We were heartbroken when we lost our old hound about 18 months back. He suffered a stroke or somesuch while I was away with work, and slipped away while I was still a fair few miles away from saying goodbye, despite my best driving efforts. My wonderful wife and our youngest daughter dealt with that awful time by themselves.

This weekend we got the chance to adopt a rescue who hasn't had the best start in life. She's a Romanian Shepherd Dog (although almost certainly a mix) and without being too graphic, was snatched from a kill centre and brought to the UK. She has a great heart and an irrepressible need for bum scratches, and is already realising her position in a house full of cats.

This is the lovely Mrs D (on the right!) less than 24 hours in, ignoring sideways rain as Storm Dennis rages through.

A bit of a blustery start.

Spring is coming.

How wonderful to take in this girl! I know she will enrich your lives as much as you will hers!

Those who rescue and often rescued as well. I am sad for your loss but the forever home you offered your newest family member is what this world needs more of. I love this capture, says home and love.
