Twilight: ensuring a dog’s last memory is of being loved

Happy New Year

Merry winter love and light to you all, and a heartfelt thank you from every Pudding and Mike and Leeanne


A New Year Reflection from Leeanne

Dear Brigand his sight when his human mum died such was his love and stress level. His Dad, a gorgeous elderly French man, tried to cope but couldn’t. He brought Brigs here. He cried as he left, leaving Brigand €50 pocket money. That was 18 months ago. Every few months he drops me a little note to check how his boy is, and I send him a story or two and some pictures.

Just now, he has confided he would love to hug Brigand one more time, but feels his heart would break. I have always promised him I will do that for him, and today was no exception. Today, he sent what could have been his train fare, €30, for Brigand and his Twilight friends to have a treat. I am feeling deeply touched by this, and wanted you to share in that not all reasons for looking to rehome are selfish. Brigand’s senses are all leaving him now except the knowing feel of human touch and love, but he is safe and loved, here at Twilight.
