Yes, they came from rescues.... but someone bred them, hopefully with much love too......

Asal do you have Netflix? There is a series on there at present called Dogs which you would enjoy. It is very understated, so you come to your own realisations about the dogs featured each episode and what they mean to the people around them. How it is in real life really.

thanks little gifts
just had to add this..
so true... so beautiful ..... all creatures great and small
Pretend she is a dog.... wonderful story. they mean so much to us, they help us so much. I have a friend whose husband has ptsd from war, one hour with our welsh Cob and he went weeks without a panic attack... they are great helps too.....
click on the pic... it enlarges....stunningly
They are fantastic at calming. Only the other day I was with a person who loading up to have a meltdown the moment I put the dogs lead in her hand her demeanour did a complete backflip, she ended up having a great day, magic!
I saw this video on Facebook about a beautiful horse who just adores people and was going in to hospices and he chose which room he wanted to go into and it was usually a person who needed him. He nibbles on them and is very up close and personal! In the footage he visits a patient who I think might have brain tumours who has not been emotionally responsive. He starts to cry as Peyo nibbles on him and checks him out. Gave me the feels big time.
I have seen it myself, our neighbour was said to be in a coma beyond knowing anyone was there... I asked him would he like to see fluffy, he nodded...
We used to bring her for visits as he hated the nursing home so.
she would cheer him up no end along with every patient who could pat her.
so went home brought fluffy and again when we arrived the doctor said its too late..
fluffy sniffed and nuzzled him and slowly his hand rose from his side to slide up her face and fondle her face and ears..... not sure who was going to faint first, the doctor or his son and grandkids.
She gave Lenny so much pleasure in the years before we had to say goodbye.
it was beautiful to see his happiness,,, he had a smile on his face and a light of happiness.
After he became too tired and went back to sleep, she did the rounds of the patients waiting to see her too...
she was so gentle with everyone.
she was one hot tomalie when you were riding her though.
this is fluffy at the State Sporting. see she sure could derby. She and her rider are 18... we had this wonderful welshie until she was 36 ... her best friend Rahma, is 34 and still going well... took Rahm's to the medieval fair at Bowral and went in the skill at Arms... our combined age was 103.. .. she is by a welsh dad from an arabian mum
Our pets can take us such wonderful places, this was a best day with puppies and Chris Brown , Amanda Keller and the Living room , HEAPS OF PUPPIES 11 of them took over the studio, Gee Chris is tall.
you wont see this again in your life time I suspect... the bay mare is Bea Bea, her two daughters are identical twins, we sure were not expecting twins. Let alone identical.
They keep us sane while the world tries to overwhelm us, dont they.
the tough bit is the knowledge that everyone of them can be taken by a moron, (with none of the qualifications of their vets with BV.Sc after their names) and killed if they so decide, because they have "formed the opinion" to do so.
Before anyone starts on my fragile mental state.
How did it get that way?
I was with Marion Alcorn in 1995 when three times she was told if she signed her ten arabians over, "they would be found good homes"
She signed them over. The man who had "formed the opinion " to seize them the day he took them was present as well... No 14 days to comply, he arrived, they were taken.
Not heresay I was there with Marion when she was promised.
I was also present at McGrath's Hill sales when that same man walked into the ring and told the auctioneer "You are only to accept bids from the doggers" then he turned on his heel and as he strode away finished "and they are all mad."
Again Not Heresay... I was there..
He "formed the opinion" all should die. Despite the promise his superiors had made in his presence, only 5 days before.
Marion received a phone call that same Saturday. Advising her all ten had been slaughtered for dog meat. When in fact all ten, were still very much alive, although we failed to save the Crenel colt. He was slaughtered after being trucked to Queensland..........The dogger who bought him refused to resell......
She never answered a phone again for over 20 years.....
Weak minded? broken certainly.
The man who "formed the opinion" that day, is now CEO of RSPCA NSW!
There is still no avenue of appeal either? why is that so?
Stringy was just the icing on the cake, showing me no one is safe.......no matter how healthy their pet is.
Remember Marion's horses next time one of you is tempted to throw at anyone, that stupid line they never act unless "where there's smoke there's fire!"
Our library has just started a reading program for kids and they read to dogs to help them along. Such a great summer idea. Dog doesn’t even need to be therapy dog, just calm and good with kids.
