Hi everyone I wanted to start a blog to share my two great loves…..dogs and books
I have always loved dogs and had a lot of experience in the rescue world both as a foster mum and home checker. I also have a mini dachshund who we adopted in 2015.
Every breed will be welcome, pedigree or mixed, it doesn’t matter as long as they have waggy tails!
There will be informative content too, including health and behavior issues and all about the process of rescuing a dog or buying a puppy from a breeder. I always try to review and promote any books featuring dogs, especially if they are rescue related.
I am an avid book reader and have written several ebooks which are collections of funny and thought provoking poems. I try to support authors by doing book reviews through NetGalley and will post here on this blog and Twitter. I read psychological thrillers, mystery, crime, children’s books and chick lit. Feel free to get in touch if a review would help you out.
From time to time I will post poems that I have written and my love for crafting will be included too.
Hope you can stop by x
But first of all, I wanted to share a poem with you about Alfie who sadly passed away on 5th April 2017.
Let me tell you a little about Alfie first
Alfie was a Cavalier King Charles spaniel crossed with a Shih Tzu. We needed a companion for our older dog and researched the temperaments of these breeds. We found out that both breeds were loyal, caring, affectionate and sweet-natured.
Well, Alfie didn’t disappoint. He was all of those things…….and more!
He soon became a soul mate for our older dog but more importantly, he took on the role of nurturer to all the rescue dogs who came through our door. I called him my ‘wingman’ because he took care of the canine side of fostering whilst I did the human stuff. He would share his bed, his toys even his mum with whoever came to stay there were no exceptions. He seemed to know that the foster dogs didn’t have privileges like he did. And when they all moved on he still had his soul mate Holly and later Mr Darcy the dachshund, but that’s a whole different story!
Here is Alfie’s poem
