Hi all, it is great to see you all again.
Before you read on please be advised that many of my hooman friends find this story sad and happy at the same time, so be warned of the potential for little tears if sitting in your office or on the bus / train home!
A little more about me, I am 8 years old and a Griffon breed, about 44 in dog years according to my mums but I don’t worry about time like you guys, I just enjoy every day as it comes.
I was born in Mt. Gambier and lived in Tasmania for many years. However, in March 2016 I needed a new home, which is a sad part of my life but also a great time as I found new mums online who I love very much. I do have a favourite but I would never tell them that secret, especially after they’ve had a few vinos!
I also have a brother Frankie but sadly he was needed in doggy heaven to make it an even happier place, I miss him lots. This is my favourite picture with him, we are staring at a cloud shaped like a bone, it was a great day!
With Frankie watching over me and my mums from above, we decided to save a life and adopt a new member to the family.
Zac is now my new little brother, he is a three-month-old Tenterfield Terrier, that’s him below. So far so good but like any new family friend, he needs proper training and attention to help him earn his ‘who is a good doggy!’ commentary. I handle most of his education re house training and socialising, my parents help a little!
I have decided that it is my responsibility to help other dogs like me and Zac to find new homes, plus it is a very nice thing to do. I know that my hoomans lives are a lot happier since I arrived, we are not called ‘Man’s Best Friend’ for no reason!
In the comments below, can you list / suggest dog shelter / rescues group that you think could use my help. I can share their list of dogs that need new homes to all my Facebook followers and in my email newsletter.
Once I get some names, I will contact them direct and see how I can help. We wont be able to help everybody but we will do our best to help as many as possible.
Thanks for reading, I am a little emotionally drained after that, so I am off for a cuddle.
