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

We are in our fifties and are still referred to as ‘the young couple’ by our neighbours. It sometimes feels as if they forget when they grow older, we grow older too. The moon harvests a few more souls each August and as I walk these streets in silence I remember the banter over garden gates, the smiles waving me in for a cup of tea and stories about how life used to be.
when our days cool down
sky unfolds her warmest
blanket of colours
