Re: A loyal servant

She is a collie/jack Russel cross Chevvy.I got wind of her staying in a shed as a 8 week old puppy.The farmer wanted 60 for her which i found a dam cheek to b honest,As she was covered in fleas and had never stayed anywhere in her short life other than in the shed.Glad to say 9 years later and she has had a great life and has gave my kids endless fun,love and doggy kisses

Re: A loyal servant

Great mono portrait Scott of a faithful friend and yes having a JT I can see that in her.

PS Not keen on the title as I do not consider my dogs servants but friends and companions.

Re: A loyal servant

Again, a great portrait.

Somehow I think that I am our dogs servant! And so does she!

Ah ! a loverly story I did wonder about Collie or German Shepherd but could not gauge her size ... and the JT bit would have foxed me

My Mr. Simpson (English Springer Spaniel) was born & bred and lived in a "shed" in the breeders garden, and when the owner bought him into the living room to "show and sell him" wacked him with a rolled up paper/magazine and you know, that puppy at 14 and a half years to his last day leap out the way if anyone picked up a paper or magazine

Its sad, breeders do it for the money with dogs and we do it for LURVE as owners Lucky dogs to all get "adopted" by owners

Re: A loyal servant

That is a shame that your dog was frightened of a newspaper Chevvy.They do not forget that's for sure.My rescue dog Kia hates any raised voices, What a state she gets in,as far as I know she was miss treated for the first 18months of her life. On the plus side she has a safe loving home now Begs the question why have an animal and abuse it??

It applies to cats as well. Our Squeak was a rescue cat and we have had her for over 13 years. She has only just grown out of running away and hiding under the furniture when ever anyone female, slim and blonde visits. I hate to think what must have been done to her - there are some sick people out there.

Down boy!

Unfortunately, my daughter was one when we acquired the cat . She has since become a somewhat more well-rounded person but they have never really "bonded". If they had been forced to co-exist (daughter has her own house) then Squeak might have got over her phobia earlier. She is currently being harried by an un-neutered tom cat from 3 doors away (Squeak not the daughter!) with visits to the vet for bites etc.

Pic of Squeak in my gallery.
