After losing Jez and Max in such a short space of time Chris and I found ourselves with a huge hole in our lives. Our whole routine changed, and although we did still go out for walks from time to time, it just wasn’t the same. So we started to search for another companion. Last weekend we found Teddy at a local rescue.
He is a young lurcher of some description (I believe they are also known as Longdogs in the US), approximately a year to 18 months old. The centre had called him Yeti. They didn’t know his name as he was picked up as a stray by a local dog warden. He had been microchipped but his details hadn’t been updated. He is very gentle and was very calm and we said we’d have him. We went back a few times over the course of the week, during which he was neutered. This was taken on one of our visits.
And today he officially became ours and we bought him home.
He’s a very pretty boy, as you can see.
And very good on the lead. Once he’d had a while to settle in I took him round Creekmoor Ponds for a little walk.
But with all of the things that had happened to him during the day he was soon worn out.
And it wasn’t long before he made himself at home and discovered the joys of a sofa.
There was just about room for me.
After which it was time for another snooze.
