My special little boy Snoopy, a stray with a smashed up leg, arrived at Wood Vets in Gloucestershire and required numerous operations and a pin to repair it. His adorable little face each time I went into the vets was irresistible so I fostered him and the rest as they say is history. We had 14 glorious years together with Ben who joined us 6 months after Snoopy’s arrival. They became best buddies and the loves of my life.
Snoopy was extra special. He wasn’t as independent as Ben so became my shadow; where I went, Snoopy followed. Yes, even onto the bed where I had barely any quilt but just could not disturb him!! He was just the best dog ever and broke my heart when I had to let him go. After some ongoing issues he went into chronic kidney failure 2 days before Congress in 2012.
I cannot put into words what my 2 rescue boys did for me, to think they had such a horrid start in life yet both were just perfect in every way. Needless to say I miss them both terribly even now, not a day goes by when I don’t think of them, if only I could have had just one more day…
