I took part in the A-Z April Blog Challenge
We lost our old dog, Rum a couple of months after moving to Devon - he was old and finding it difficult to get around, but at least he had a few weeks to enjoy the countryside. (Rum was a rescue dog from Woodford Green Animal Shelter, Essex - he had been badly treated for four years)

Then we got Baz - a rescue from Ilfracombe Dog's Trust. He is the most fantastic dog, really and truly one of the family. Baz was found abandoned in Ilfracombe, wandering the streets. Given that the Dog's Trust Centre is just outside Ilfracombe why couldn't the b*stds have handed him in - or even tied him up to the gate with a note instead of just dumping him? Makes me bl**dy mad!)
Now that their annexed flat is finished, my daughter and son-in-law wanted their own dog. So, back to the Dog's Trust...
We had Tess for a short while, but she didn't fit in. After having chased the hens and ducks (catching one of them) and biting the cat I'm afraid she had to go back. (Glad to say I think she now has a suitable home)
So we were offered a collie pup instead. 12 weeks old, already had several homes... (why DO people who live in FLATS and WORK all day get collie pups???)
His name was Max but we changed his name to Eddie there being several Max's (canine and human!) in the Village... and he is super fun!
He gets on well with Baz, can already herd the chickens up (although he managed to get himself into the chicken shed, not the chickens) loves us, loves life... welcome to the family little lad!
