Another trip to the Cheshire Dogs Home to see Star this afternoon. We took her for a walk around the woods then played in the fenced compound with her running and fetching a ball. She even allowed me to put her back on the lead when it was time to go back to the kennels.
Harvey is a hard act to follow but I reckon Star will steal everyone’s heart, just as Harvey did. Of course she’s not a replacement for him, just as he wasn’t a replacement for Guinness, because you can never replace anyone you’ve loved so much, human or canine. You just do your best to carry on when they’re gone.
As long as I live Guinness and Harvey will forever be with me in spirit but there’s a big hole in my life at the moment, a hole where there should be a dog, and Star is just the dog for the job!
