I love and adore dogs and am involved with Retriever Rescue WA, a wonderful rescue who have foster carers caring for the surrendered dogs until they are ready for adoption.
I have a special place in my heart for dogs and have had many profound, deeply loving experiences with our beautiful dogs, Jewel Bella, an American Cocker Spaniel (or recently I'm thinking she may have been a Spoodle after seeing a Spoodle who looked exactly like her!) and Lawsy, who had a lot of Labrador in him.
Jewel Bella used to spend many hours alongside me while I wrote. At times when I was doing everything but write, she would sit in my study doorway and insistently bark with nothing able to distract her...until I came in and wrote! She would then lie on the rug next to me, sleeping peacefully. I discovered the power of unconditional love and acceptance through my relationship with this deeply loving, courageous and beautiful dog.
And Lawsy, our very gorgeous boy was with us for 7 years. He was a rescue dog who became so empathic and always knew who needed love and support. His heart was enormous...
I'll be sharing the story of beautiful Jack who we fostered in December 2022 and adopted in March 2023, on The Heart of Dogs page xxx
