Leeanne's Anniversary Dog Blog


I remember my tenth birthday, my pink flair cords and likely non matching jumper! I had never had a pet other than a budgie.

 Here I am, with my handsome man .... about to be celebrating our tenth anniversary of Twilight. Ten years of over 300 old or disabled doggies.

 I can’t believe it really. We both remember little Nina trotting around the garden perimeter as she had for years, left alone in a garden after her owner died. But she stopped, settled, and taught us that patience, love and her own time was all that was needed. Who would have thought it would become our later life’s passion, one we wish only we had found earlier .... and one we know, however tired or difficult it may become .... we will do for our always.

Over the Rainbow Bridge

Recently we have lost  The Queen of Twilight, our regal lady of the tripod, Emie. She was one of a kind, a precious girl, strong willed,  demanding and with a mind of her own, but a joy. We miss her. Read more of Emie's story on the 2018 Rainbow Bridge page.
