Posting days: Sunday and Wednesday and, sometimes, maybe, extra ‘news flashes’!
Wednesday March 30th 2016
On a Sunday walk in Highbury Park, soon after I adopted my beautiful Isis, another fluffy grey and white dog appeared, merrily prinking in the long grass. Astonishing! Those amazing ears, flowing and hairy, were strikingly similar to Hairy One’s. As was the very hairy tail.
As I stared at this small Isis look-alike, I suddenly became aware that its human was regarding Isis with similarly rapt attention.
Naturally, we exchanged information. This, she explained, was Mia from Spain who, like Isis, was adopted through Dogwatch. Mia had been with her humans, L and G for several months and although still a very nervous little dog, was gradually becoming more relaxed.
I cursed myself for leaving my camera at home.
On Easter Monday I meet Mia again. A happy and much more confident little dog, she is obviously much loved.
What a pretty dog.
And this time I have my camera.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or www.dogwatchuk.co.uk
