Happy & Safe!

Just over four months ago we brought home another little rescue doggie, you have already met him in previous Blogs, but this week I met the wonderful lady who rescued him, Margaret.

Margaret and her friend Judith have spent over two decades rescuing and helping animals badly treated, abandoned and worse on the Island. When I showed her the latest photographs of Barney, she was thrilled to see him so happy and then went on to tell me how she had found him. ´I had to get on all fours and crawl under the table to get to him he was so afraid. His eating and water bowls were full of sand…no food or water! The neighbour´s told me they had often heard him cry when he was smacked.´

All played out!

Poppy, adored by Barney

Barney is now 14 months old and the very thought of anyone hurting him, makes me feel sick. He is a beautiful doggy both to look at and his personality. He loves our other rescue doggy to the point of not going anywhere unless she is there too.    It is beyond my imagination that anyone could hurt them, but of course people do, but thanks to the likes of Judith and Margaret, little doggies like our Barney are helped. Margaret is looking into doing her own Blog and when it is all set up, I will let you know, maybe you might be able to offer something to help with their fund raising.

Aw, poor Barney. People who can treat animals like that should be shot.

I'm sure he's forgotten all about it now that he has his lovely new home and his new friends. Lovely photos!

Adorable. It's amazing that people can abandon these animals.

Thank you Leigh for stopping by and taking time to leave a comment. Like you we can not stop wondering why people can be so cruel, they are both wonderful dogs and so loving, and of course we love them! Take care and hope to see you again.
