These two make the world seem brighter. Being 6 months pregnant and at home with a 4 year old these pooches are my therapy. They listen without answering back, give me hugs, take me on a walk, bring me back down to earth, make me laugh and entertain my 4yr old for me. I live for our evening cuddles when the house is finally quiet.
He is the best big dog brother for Ezra, who is 1. They have the greatest bond and it is just so lovely to watch them play together.
She wasn’t a Lively happy girl, she was a damaged dog who didn’t trust easily, and cowered with tail firmly lodged between her legs. She looked like a rather grumpy old man really. She had permanent issues and at only 5 already had arthritis from injured joints. We visited her many times And she didn’t really seem to gel too well with us: but we knew her time in kennels had been long and decided to give her a home regardless of the medicine commitment and behavioural challenges. She had assaulted a robotic dog, thus failed a test and we were warned not to attempt walks when other dogs were about.
well, she started out just as she has gone on.... a sniff about, surveyed her two new beds: our carefully contained garden For her safety and then bolted! Straight up the stairs.... Tail flying high behind her as she shot off! By the time we clambered after her... she was nuzzling cheerfully into the covers of my double bed with a glint of mischief and glee.
Everyone meet Pippa the puppy ❤️
On the left is my 3 year old daughter Alyth and on the right is our 3 month old working collie Chase (Alyth is a paw patrol fan).
We lost our 15 year old collie/golden retreiver Cross on 14th December 2019, and to our shock we lost our 13 year old retired collie Gale just a mo th later, to the date on the 14th January. We think they missed each other. Alyth took it really bad, and our neighbour noticed the change in us all, she told us she had puppies on the way. My partner and I both decided to keep it a secret and Alyth and Chase have been inseparable since we got her 7 weeks ago. Running after a puppy during lockdown has been possibly the best thing to have happened to us, there's certainly no time to be 'bored' or 'fed up'!
We live on the Isle of Lewis and have a beach at the bottom of our croft, this is the 2 best buddies last week playing
Our Cavalier, Stevie has the happiest disposition! Stevie has the softest heart and sees the world through the gentlest eyes - this is why we call him with great affection “Little Man”!
Stevie’s full of character - there are so many anecdotes we could tell about the funny and more unusual things Stevie gets up to! For instance when it snows, he nestles his chin in the snow and shuffles backwards, creating a loose snowball, which he then picks up and runs away with! He looks with great excitement, but also bewilderment as they inevitably fall apart!
When I was seriously ill, hearing little Stevie stories was the best therapy. It was the highlight of each day, and really helped keep me going - even on the darkest days. I often think of Stevie as an angel, meant to be our family’s companion and therapist!
With bags of personality and full of the joys of life, even in his old age, he is also very loving and tuned in to us all, enjoying a bond with the whole family, young and old. As you can imagine, Stevie is tremendously special and means the world to all of us!
