So before I start blogging about them I thought I should introduce them to you formally.
This is Bob, he is a Rhodesian Ridgeback Cross, he is a rescue dog and was born in 2010 in South Africa, he came to live with us in April 2013. His previous owners handed him in to the SPCA as they could no longer afford to feed him, unfortunately it appears they also hit him with a stick and kicked him as he is very frightened of sticks if you try to throw one and runs away and hides, he also gets very scared if you get tangled up in his lead and lift your foot up to get out of the way.
This is Pushkins, what can I say? She was a stray and decided to move in with us in March 2012, my friend Suzi was visiting and she assisted my youngest with the adoption procedure, without my knowledge. The cat then just moved in and claimed us as her own. She is a long haired tabby, there was no chip and she was well fed and cared for and wearing a collar, we advertised her around the estate, pet shops and several vets. After 2 months we had to move and I wasn't sure she would come with us, so keeping her in the new house for a few days and letting her outside for short visits on a leash we decided just to let her go and what would be would be. Well 3 years on and a move to Dubai, we can definitely say she is now ours.
Lucas says - You have 2 gorgeous animals and I love how well and happy Bob looks now. Ash, our dog, is a rescue dog and he was beaten very badly. Thankfully Ash is now very happy with us and I am so excited about reading more about Bob and Pushkins xx #animaltalesReplyDelete
thank you, I'm afraid there won't be too many posts, the next one is about their relocation experience from south africa to dubaiDelete
Pushkins and Bob are just beautiful! They both seem to be very happy with their living arrangements today.ReplyDelete
thank you, they seem contentDelete
Bob looks terrific now, so happy that you rescued him. I had cats years ago, even though I was allergic, I do miss having them, but all the kids are also allergic to them.ReplyDelete
cats have never appealed to me, although I've always wanted a dog, it was the commitment while the children were small that was the issueDelete
All our dogs have been rescues and I am so glad you could give Bob the loving home he deserves. Pushkins looks like the sort of cat who could get herself into all sorts of daft situations. I bet she was glad she adopted you although she could never have guessed how far she would subsequently travel.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for joining in with #AnimalTales and I look forward to seeing how you got Bob and Pushkins to Dubai.
the cat has spent the past two weeks looking for her 'spot' it used to be on the window ledge, she's currently favouriting any cupboardDelete
