  1. A darling example of working together and it is clear that the dogs have a strong bond. It always makes me smile when I see dogs that are so happy enjoying life. Your cover action shot of the dogs is excellent. Did they come from a rescue organization?

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Amanda and for hosting this lovely challenge πŸ’— Eivor and Pearl were both adopted from different shelters when they were about three years old and they instantly connected. They are true soulmates and we’re so happy they found each other in this life πŸ’– xxx

      1. I think some breeds of dog do better with their own breed. They seem to understand each other more and prefer their company. Schnauzers are like this. We jokingly call them breedist snobs sometimes! Lol. You dogs look so sweet. Well done getting them from a rescue. We had a Schnauzer from a rescue and she was the best dog in the world! So much affection for us! She has been gone 3 years now and I still tear up at the thought of her.

      2. Thank you dear Amanda, it’s true some breeds really enjoy being among their own kind (our greyhounds loved meeting other greyhounds too and it was as if they all knew each other). Schnauzers are such sweet devoted dogs and it’s wonderful you were able to offer your dog such a loving home. They always stay in our hearts and there’s so many happy memories πŸ’œ xxx


  2. Beautiful photos – Eivor and Pearl are so lucky to have found each other, through you. It’s certainly true that pointy dogs get on best with other pointies! I’m still working on getting Keith socialised with other dogs, but I know I don’t have to worry too much when he meets another sighthound. πŸ™‚ ❀ xxx

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Annabelle πŸ’œ It’s true pointy dogs are very comfortable among their own kind and recognise each other’s mannerisms when the behaviour of other breeds can seem threatening at times. Keith seems a real sweetie and hopefully he’ll make more friends over time. Hope you are both safe and well and please give Keith a big pat from us all πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ• xxx
