Jeanie has been again today and she's here for a sleepover too. It is such a joy to have a dog about the house again. For various reasons I can't have my own dog at the moment, but how I miss my Fido!
Fido came to me from cocker rescue. His original name was Barney but it seemed as though every other dog that I met was also called Barney. I'd never met a dog who was actually called Fido and it seemed to suit him. He had a terrible tendency to catch fleas, despite regular treatment so he had to be kept clipped fairly short.
He was incredibly greedy which regularly got him into trouble as he had no morals and would pinch from dogs, humans (especially children) and bins. On one occasion he found a pineapple skin and ate it and was VERY sick but got no sympathy from your truly. Here he had his suspicions that there was something edible under the cupboard and he managed to get stuck and being horrible I photographed him before I rescued him.
His best friend was Toby, my cousin's dog. One day they demolished a large soft toy between them and Fido managed to wear it, I call this picture, "His Honour, Judge Fido".
Sadly Fido had to be put to sleep November 2013. I still miss him but I'm so glad that he enriched my life.
