This is Rocky the dog who doesn't get to see much outside his own garden. Well I am pleased to report that things are a changing. After having a few walks with me he has realised that there is life beyond the garden fence, a whole new world out there, and he wants to explore it.
The crafty little fella has been making a break for it, but he doesn't run away, he knows exactly where to go to find comfort, food, companionship and a warm place to sleep. Barry's house.
Barry lives opposite Rocky, and has a dog called Scruff. He is a kind man and loves his dog. He did have two, both rescued, but sadly one passed away leaving Scruff on his own.
Rocky has been turning up at Barry's house at all hours of the day and night, and Barry takes him in, feeds him and walks him, and takes him back to the woman in the house. For him only to repeat the whole sequence over again. Barry has been keeping him longer and longer, in the hope that the woman says he can keep him forever. The woman does not seem too concerened where Rocky is. I don't think she is a horrible woman, seems ok to talk to, but she has no idea what looking after a dog is all about.
So keep your fingers crossed that she will let him stay in his new home permanently, because he couldn't find a better one.
This is Scruff, a lovely dog.The two of them are perfect together, the best of pals.
