(Mississauga, Ontario, Canada)
Hi from Ontario Canada, near Toronto
I loved your story of Tomas. You gave him a beautiful life. What dog could want for more? Their lives are just too short. My husband and I have rescued many many dogs and loved them all as unconditionally as they loved us. Two years ago we had to put down the last of our group of 4. They all made it to 15-17years of love and fun. Many 'city' people do not understand our lifestyle, but our lives are not complete without our 'babies' (which always include a pretty kitty or 2).
We started a new family by adopting our Floyd at 8 wks of age (Shepherd/husky/lab mix. He is very much shepherd and worries, but has lots of friends too. We felt he was getting too self-centred so looked to adopt more balance to the family and found Hughey. We were told he is a 2 year old hound mix, but know he is a doberman. He had a very sick 'broken tail' and other infestations and too skinny when we got him and suffered too much the 1st 2 months as incompetent vet was trying to 'fix' his tail and missed infestations. We cared for him night and day, poured on the love. Hughey is now 95lbs of pure love, devotion and fun. He and Floyd are best friends and love their daily 2hr run in the local conservation area, their 20 times daily 'ultimate fighting bouts' and curling up together with us as much as possible. Hughey did bring balance to Floyd and is a patient, protective older brother to Floyd. Hughey is definitely a doberman no matter what anyone says. They are a perfect mix and our gray calico kitty, Cleo, is also a great friend to complete the group. I hope you continue to have dogs as dogs need someone like you. Thanks.
