The Loyal Love by Kaz-D The Loyal Love by Kaz-D
Dogs have been in my life since I was born. Gemma and Lucky, our faithful black labradors rescued from a life of cruelty were the first two. They saw me well into my school years, way beyond my first steps, first trips, tears and more. Lucky went first and so to accompany him we found 'Star.' She was a rescue too, she'd had a life of ups and downs, goods and bads (why anyone could ever be cruel to a dog is beyond me.) Star saw us through the trials and tribulations of those ten years - the most difficult period of my life where everything was in turmoil and upside down. Because we were a close family, and because we were so bruised - it was a lot longer before we introduced anything new. But Buddy came along in Star's final years - and he's still going strong today of course, being a big pup. Buddy is my parents dog although I call him mine because we lived together for a fair while! When TouchedD and I got our house, he told me that we would need to wait at least two years before we got a dog. However I cunningly arranged for Buddy to come and stay whilst my parents were travelling for around a month. And once Buddy left, a big hole appeared which had once been filled by a canine friend. We were no longer precious about our cream carpets and white walls. Our sofa had well and truly been taken over. The grass was no longer pristine and clean... but we didn't care. So, to finish off a long rambly story - along came Maisy. She has been here for six weeks now and is here to stay. Just thirteen months old she's a bundle of Collie X awesome. And we love her. To bits.

"“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.”
Milan Kundera"
