Hi Everyone,
I am a senior woman with an adorable rescue doggy. I found her at a site
that says they rescue death row dogs. She is a Shepherd Cross approx 4 1/2
years old. Someone has obeidience trained her & she is a darling.
I don't know why anyone would give her up. She has some fear problems
& is not fond of men so I assume she has been mistreated by a man.
However I hope I can get her over that. I lost my husband a year & a half ago then my dog died & I was devastated. Now I have a sweetie pie to love.
I guess that is about all. A friend sent me this site & I like it very much I will enjoy reading about everything. I was sad about the lost dog in Surrey. I too
live in Surrey & my doggie looks much like the lost one. Gremlin

Hi Again, I am trying to put a picture here, but so far I have not been able to. I have a macintosh which might be why it does not seem to work.
I will get someone to help me. I mostly do drag & drop on e-mail which
always works fine. Heidi likes to have her picture taken & I have many
pics. I just can't seem to put one here. I am not a techie. -- Gremlin

Hi Gremlin:
Another senior and a widow . Love your dog....what a beauty.
I too adopted a dog right after my husband died. She was my dearest companion for only 4 years due to horrific health problems in the last year but she helped me through the saddest and traumatic time of my life and she will never be forgotten.
I waited 10 years but now I am owned by Casey a white/buff cocker spaniel 6 yrs old that I adopted last summer and Jake a Jack Russell/Beagle 8 yrs old approx who arrived yesterday.
Both these dogs accepted the retirement package I offered them and they are enjoying each other and giving me lots of things to smile about.
I have a real soft spot for the senior dogs because they are so settled and they actually adapt to a new environment more easily than the younger ones.
When I hear that the only alternative is euthanasia for these animals, it breaks my heart, especially when they have been with a family for so long.
My family is complete now because I have such a small house and yard and financially would not be able to deal with more than 2 aging dogs and the resulting medical bills that may be incurred.
Casey is very healthy so far and sailed through her spaying.
Jake I am not sure what we will find at the vet visit. He also is not neutered and I fear for testicular cancer or some other problem.
Spaying and neutering early is a kindness to pets. I do not understand why most owners do not believe this.
Both of my adorable adoptees are unable to enjoy the protection afforded by early spaying/neutering. What a shame.
Nice to meet you all and I am looking so forward to reading all the interaction on this site.
