Three years ago today, my mum told me her friend knew a dog that needed to be rescued. He had been found under a caravan, taken to the vets (something I didn't know - vets can keeps a dog for 6 weeks then they would be put down if nobody takes ownership of him), the vet had kindly taken Milo into her home but already had 2 dogs.
I've always had dogs in my family home and thought it was a great idea to rescue him - Rob wasn't so sure. Being more of a cat person he didn't think we could commit to a dog.
I found out the vets name was Lauren Evans (MY NAME TOO!!) it was a sign! We met Milo and the vet for a walk, Milo pee'd on our wellies and was clearly nervous but too cute for his own good. I was in love! Rob still wasn't sure... WHAT!? the dog is going to be put down!! Not being much of a cryer, I cried and cried .. and Rob gave in :)
Now, Milo is the biggest daddy's boy! Rob and him jog every morning together and he pretty much sits on Robs knee for a fuss when he can. He's the most loving dog ever and I have to remind Rob of that person that didn't want a dog.
"The best thing about a dog is you can act like something really good just
happened and they'll instantly start celebrating too and they have
no idea what the context is, they're just always ready party no matter what"
We love getting home to Milo wagging himself in half to see us like we have been away for weeks. We hate thinking about how he might have been treated and for that reason, he's probably the most spoilt dog in the world, we try to take him everywhere with us. He has written a blog for @dogfuriendly with his favourite places in Wales. You can see pictures below or read the blog here.
