A few years on…


It’s been awhile since I have written here but life gets in the way sometimes, unfortunately.

Brin is well and becoming quite distinguished now by sporting a white moustache!


He still rules the roost and woe-betide any cat who crosses his path….although much less of the ‘take off’ and ‘flying through the air’ is involved nowadays.

When we lost dear Dennis we rather thought Brin would be a loner as he often found other dogs quite stressful. Dennis and he tolerated each other from a distance but they never really interacted.

As I was overseeing adoptions for oversea dogs at that time I was asked to collect a young dog who was coming in from Ukraine.

Another soldier rescue.

Trinni was a stray pup who would come on to a base for a sausage every afternoon.

She became very popular!

One day, not long before the soldiers were due to leave she disappeared!

During a quick search she was found badly injured and being devoured by ticks.

The soldiers quickly set to work, patching her up as best they could.

Luckily, a call was made and Trinni was collected by a wonderful woman call Alex who drove 100 miles to get her to a vet in Kiev where the vet worked to save her life and leg.

Trinni recovered and was able to travel where I was asked to find her a home.

On collecting her she curled up in my arms and slept all the way home.

It was love…pure and simple.

The next test was how Brin would react….only time would tell.
