Happy To Be Here

By ketch
Well this is my first upload for a very long time - in part because I lost my dog and she meant far more than I ever realised.

So this is an upload not of her (that would be just too painful) but of another little dog whom we re-homed just before we lost our old girl.

Youth - always good to keep us looking to the future ...

Best wishes all

Like the angle.

Sorry to hear about your dog


(we're getting a Westie in a couple of months. Our daughter loves them and it'll be good company for our black lab Max).

Thank you all for your lovely comments - really very much appreciated. The dog in the shot is called Toggle btw and yes I think will prove to be a star (and a clown and of course being a westie completely untrainable!).

Best wishes

It is always sad to lose a dog as they are more a part of the family than any other animal.

Your new dog already looks very happy and I am sure it will have as happy a life as your old dog did.
