Great face

Hasn't Cliff got a GREAT FACE? Check out the great 'eye-brows' and ears and patterns on this dog's face. Isn't that just a GREAT FACE? A rags to riches story of little Cliff being dumped in a ditch as a puppy to grow up to be prince of the Dog Rescue, Cliff is simply GREAT.

Bye Squirrel-Dog!

Squirrel-Dog is going to be fostered so I had to feature him before he goes. Here he is multi-tasking getting a tummy rub while posing for fans!

These two dogs are siblings and they have lots of fun confusing the volunteers at the Rescue about who is who. 'I'm Samba!' 'No, I am Samba. That's Burma.' etc. Dogs are so cool that they can mess with your head and you STILL love them.

Teriffic Terrier

Batty craves affection like chocoholics crave Cadburys. But he also needs lots of walks. He was abandoned on the streets by some heartless moron who probably thought little dogs don't need much exercise. Terriers need loads! One part of energetic terrier-cross Batty's exercise routine is to see how high he can jump to lick you!

Food wars

These dogs take a Time-Out from their food war.

Arfur the min-pin. vs Squirrel-Dog

Arfur's tactic is to bark consistently in Squirrel-Dog's face whilst hogging the food bowl.
Squirrel-Dog's tactic is to completely ignore him and end up being hand-fed by the photographer in an 'IN YOUR FACE ROOMIE!' kind of a way.
Casualties: Me! It's very hard being neutral. I love them both! The anguish!

Dogs need exercise!

Cockers are my ultimate fave dogs. An interview with Derek the cocker here would probably go along these lines...

Me: So, Derek, what is your favourite hobby?
Derek: Running. Chasing things. Running some more.
Me: How do you feel about public transport?
Derek: I love watching buses. I think bus-spotting is cool, I don't care what the other dogs say.Me: Who are your friends at the Rescue?
Derek: I really need my own dog space, but Fergus the schnauser comes up to my kennel for a chat. He's O.K.
Me: Why are you at the Rescue?
Derek: My owners didn't understand my needs. Lady, I NEED to run! They don't understand that dogs are great for getting owners in shape.
Me: Thanks Derek!
Derek: No probs. And hey! I saw you scoffing those instant noodles earlier; let me help you burn them off!

whiskers look good on a dog

Can you see Fleur's wonderful whiskers? These awesome hunting and orienteering aids are yet another cool feature of dogs. Whiskers look great on female dogs, even though they don't look so hot on female humans.
