We are currently contemplating rescuing a dog, it’s a tough decision and something that I’m certainly not walking into with my eyes shut. Not 100% on this yet as it is a big decision.
I was affected greatly when I lost Charlie, my mental white staffy. I had to take her to the vet to be put down after many years of friendship and companionship, possibly one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. It still affects me now when I think about it. I was in floods of tears watching Marley & Me a week or so back as it just brought those memories back.
I feel a rescue dog is the right way to go rather than buying a puppy. I hate to think of all the dogs out there that have been neglected, mistreated or abandoned, and if we can give a loving home to one then we will.
We would like Ellie to grow up with dogs in her life as they are truly magical and fun and create so many happy memories.
Watch this space, woof!
