is that you, Conchobhar?



Kerry told me that when Isis met another dog while she was at the rescue centre, she didn’t appear frightened and wasn’t aggressive, she just ignored it.

Perhaps she was separated early from any siblings because of her disabilities. Who knows? She does not relate to other dogs and one can only surmise that she was not socialised as a puppy.

Recently, however, she has begun, very tentatively, to acknowledge one or two of her walking companions.

She seems to feel at ease around Conchobhar. And  yesterday she gave Rufus’s nose a quick sniff.

Isis came from the Aeza cat and dog rescue and adoption centre in Aljezur, Portugal. For information about adopting an animal from the centre, contact or
