Eivor at the shelter, photograph taken by SSPCA.
My Friend, My Shadow
You follow me in silence
with the patience of angels.
You were my stepping stone
to a better life
and remind me
how far I have come.
My friend, my shadow
you can rest in the dark
while I stride on
into the light.

Every rescue dog we have adopted so far had either been abandoned, abused or neglected by their previous human companions.
In their own way they have left the past behind and seem to accept and love every aspect of themselves. Their past has brought them empathy and understanding when we meet other rescue dogs to whom they always reach out with love.
With love to you all from Eivor, Pearl & Xenia xxx
