Shadow – that forlorn little street pup who’d resolutely decided he was adopting me as his Mummy is today the Darling of our family. Official guard dog, watch dog, sprinter, fetcher, high jumper, climber and amateur hunter defines only a part of his exuberant personality. My little boy turns two today – officially out of puppyhood, a grown Dog. But he is and always will be our ‘Darling puppy’.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Sweetheart Shadow.

We adore you and we know you know. We just love so many things about you - the way you are so brave always and protective, the way you always come running when called, the way you can’t sleep till I or Daddy hold you close. But most of all you are so precious because every time I look at you, you make me feel a little less sad about the millions of poor stray pups living and dying on our streets everyday.


Ginger – that scared little pup I’d scooped up into my arms from my neighbour’s filthy balcony, shaky at the knees, terrified of thunder is today the most confident and nonchalant dog I’ve ever known.

Ginger changed our lives forever. I and my husband became parents that day when we adopted her and how! Today she knows us both inside out. She understands every little nuance of our behavior, every little change of tone in our conversation, every bit of tension, joy, sadness, fear and elation.

It is difficult to imagine that my little girl is six years old today. Well, she certainly doesn’t look and behave like one!


Happy Birthday, Ginger.

We are and always will be grateful you are family. You’ve taught us so much, we’ve been through so much together…


Bless you, My Dahlings.
