I have another garage buddy now, she's a 6month old English x American staffy called daisy. Had to build a fence between the house and shed to stop her pinching stuff to chew up. Overall tho, she's a happy lil dog and a good mate.
if i can draw it i can build it.

We have a border collie, when he first came to live with us, he was crawling with fleas, you could feel every bone in his body, his coat was so badly mattered he had to have crew cut. His eyes were blank and he snapped at imagery flies.

He had no idea what affection was. I would lift my hand, he would lay down and lift his back leg, if I tried to pat him he would wee.

I had just lost my healer Diesel (3 years old) and had said to my wife "no more dogs" we not on the farm anymore. The truth was I thought I must be getting too old as it hurt so much to see them go. Diesel had been baited over xmas his first year (snail bait) ,they got him on his 3rd and I had to have him put down.
What ever they used, had him falling over with legs stretched, head back in full convolutions, the vet tried for 2 days to save him, but his brain was cooked. I have always had healers all my dogs lived for at least 12 years. I would retire them from working at about 8 after they helped train a pup kept from the last litter. From then on they would be pampered, off the chain and help move the stock in the lanes and yards.

My wife took on Mr Hamish and bit by bit he started to understand he was in the right place. He is gentle, obedient and loves to round up the grand kids and fetch his squeaky toys for them. Bushy tail held high. :D :D :D

Yep . It also goes to show that a dog will sense the character/intent of people and appreciate them. The behaviour of my late dog was similar. She was an RSPCA rescue. Of all the dogs in that place on the day I got her she was the only one cowering from humans passing by the individual kennel/caged runs. That's what got my attention. She would shy away from the shed and any gardening implements. We ended up in a relationship of complete trust . I was the only person who could pick up her bone whilst she was in possession without any aggressive reaction. Been one and a half months now since she has passed on and I still miss her. Mr Hamish looks to be a lucky dog now. As for mongrels who neglect or mistreat these animals that end up in shelters. They should get the same treatment in my book. Our cat is a rescue from the cat protection society The two Shi Tzus my wife has are also rescues. One was kept locked up in a chook pen with matted coat covered in crap.
