On this day one year ago we discovered newly born pups in the shell of an abandoned car at the sanayi. There were 12 in the litter but only 7 survived.
We fed the mum, and tried to make them as comfortable as possible with blankets and by covering the car with heavy duty plastic.
We found homes for four of them, and at four weeks old we brought the other three home. We called them Melek, Chas and Dave.
They were so tiny and we never imagined they would grow so big.
On the 11th January, darling Dave died after a short illness, before he had chance to reach his first birthday.
We loved him so much and miss him dreadfully. It doesn't matter how many dogs pass through your life, they are all so special and it's devastating when you lose one, particularly one like Dave who was still so young.
Happy Birthday Melek and Chas.
Rest in Peace lovely Dave....we will never forget you xx
