I have noticed with the kind caring souls who rescue animals that they often take more than one into their homes. Gayle is no exception and gave a home and her love and affection to these three little tackers.
Aged 14 the Miniature Fox Terrier is the oldest dog in this family. Not so drawn to affection Pip tends to be rather bossy and cranky with other canines and humans alike. She is very much her own being and not easily persuaded by others.
Ollie, a 7 year old Maltese cross, is the ratbag of the family who cleverly begs sitting upright on his hind legs. It is a trick that commands him attention and admiration. He also loves to snuggle down in comfort on the soft furnishings or in Gayle’s arms.
Gayle described Kenny, the 11 year old Chihuahua cross, as a caring gentleman. He stepped into a very important role when her husband was dying of cancer as, unusually, he was allowed into intensive care to offer his support and comfort. Other patients also found consolation from the opportunity to pat and cuddle him. Sadly Kenny has recently lost his own battle with cancer. This dear wee dog will surely be missed by all who let him into their hearts.
