........... boss.

I have been thinking about getting a dog for some time now and began the process of looking around a while ago. I didn't want a pedigree of any sort but rather a crossbreed. I also wanted a rescue dog.

Looked at several in various cat and dog shelters and did see some lovely dogs, all of which deserve loving homes, but none of them 'spoke' to me.
Until, that is, yesterday.

My lady friend Chris, spotted an advert in our local rag advertising for anyone interested in adopting a rescue dog. We rang the lady and arranged to go see the two dogs in question, about forty miles away, despite the atrocious snowy weather, and did the journey in fifty minutes.

'Symi', was rescued off the streets of a city in Romania before the cruel dog catchers over there got to her. (that's a story for another day

She had been on the streets for about a year it's thought, after being abandoned by her owner/s. She was treated humanely by the rescuers in Romania, seen and treated by a vet, given a clean bill of health, chipped and vaccinated and speyed. She then faced an eight day journey with another dog and arrived with Julie (the UK end of the dog rescue operation) five days ago.

And now she came to me this morning.

She has and internal infection due to the stitches from speying being overdue for removal. So tomorrow she goes to the vets to have them removed plus an antibiotic injection.

Naturally all of this has been traumatic for her but already she just wants to cuddle into me and be loved. Just like most of us I guess.

So here she is, meet Symi:

Nice going Al. We got a rescue dog a couple of years ago ourselves. Although her back story is not near as interesting as your ole girl's.

Thanks guys.

Paul: something like....De mers pe jos... I think. LOL

Kay: Yeah, 'The eye's have it' (play on words)

Mind you, she's not going to be 'cheap to keep'. The op to sort out her internal speying infection, cost me £257.00!!!!!!! But she is worth it.
