During my first marriage I had two Yorkshire terriers called William and Daisy. I was devastated when they grew old and died. Later on we rescued two more dogs, a Jack Russell called Tom,and another called Scruffy.
I have mentioned before that I have rescued a number of street dogs since I moved to Turkey. We kept them for a while, got them vaccinated and neutered and found homes for them. Sadly we can't afford to do this anymore. But I did keep Beki who is now around 8 years old, and of course we took Poppy in over a year ago.
Sam lived to a ripe old age and finally died just before Billy was born. Very sad because it seems that Billy also loves dogs and he never had the chance to get to know Sam. When I speak to him on webcam Poppy jumps up on my lap and Billy gets very excited. Billy also loves Ringo the cat and they have become the best of friends.
Stella's father has always had dogs too and Billy enjoys his visits there....as you can see from these pics taken yesterday:
|I like this dog bed!|
|Are you awake?|
|Let's be friends!|
I have a feeling that Billy will have a dog of his own one day when he's old enough to take care of it....all little boys and girls should have a "best friend"...don't you think?
