The best dog I’ve ever had goes gently over the the rainbow bridge

Doogie, we should have apologised to him for him for his unimaginative name. Doogie Howser was on a re-run when he  walked through the compound gate. 

Clearly a scared dog, he was skittish and needed his time. But 5 years later, no member of his new human family could get close enough to him to touch him. Never aggressive, with food, or people. He’d watch from a distance, listen to what was being said and go quietly into his self imposed spaces. It was clear, Doogie knew he was safe and chose to keep to himself. A simple request to respect.

Doogie found a friend. No, Doogie rescued a friend. A beautiful abandoned sheep dog mix girl. He knew the importance of a safe space and brought her home.

 Inseparable best friends, they helped each other cope and flourished. Cookie makes up for it. A lap dog (she does not know her size!) open spirit who hasn’t lost her trust in humanity.

 Fast forward 3 years, enter Felix, a young rascal, 8-11 months old, they welcome him to their safe space. Doogie has now saved two lives

A gentleman and an old soul, you left as quietly as you came.
