This is my dog Beki. She is 5 years old. She was dumped off the back of a truck along with 2 other pups at just 2 weeks old. Beki was clearly the runt of the litter. She was so tiny compared to the other two pups, she could hardly stand, let alone walk A local vet found homes for the other two, but told me Beki wouldn't survive. But I decided to give her my best shot so with lots of regular feeding with baby formula, sleepless nights and TLC, I proved him wrong.
She is beautiful and loyal with a sense of mischief. If I let her off her lead for a run then call her back she will often run off in the opposite direction. OK she comes back eventually but it's a game she just plays with me. As far as Mr Ayak is concerned she is obedient and comes when called.
However, there are times when she can take things seriously. One winter when we lived in Cappadocia, I was out with her on the lead in thick snow. As we were returning to the house, I slipped and fell on my back and couldn't move. I let go of the lead as I fell and Beki would normally use this as an excuse to run off. But she clearly knew something was wrong because she lay down beside me in the snow and started to lick my face. And that's where she stayed until I was able to recover, get up and make my way home.
She always knows if I'm feeling unwell and gives me lots of sympathy.
I love dogs...at times they are so much more loyal than people.
