Happiness is living with a dog!

Mushroom the terrier!
Mushroom the terrier!

Just thought I’d share a photo of one of the other occupants of my household!  I love this little guy so much!  This is Mushroom the rescue terrier who my husband and I adopted two years ago.  He was a very straggly and smelly stray we spotted at our local rescue centre Wood Green Animal Shelter in Huntingdonshire.  He quickly adapted to life with us, but as anyone who has ever adopted a rescue animal will know, it takes a seriously long time for them to trust you and trust that you are not going anywhere.  We have had our serious ups and downs, but we are settled now.  Mushy Man spends his time following my husband around the house, playing endless fetch the ball and rough and tumbling with his Boarder Collie brother (now I have an excuse for more pooch related posts!).

To to everyone who shares their home with a domesticated wolf, a friendly wave, and to those of you who have a rescue pooch I salute you!  It’s fun after a time isn’t it?

  1. I am a massive lover of animals, especially dogs and your fellow looks so adorable – I just want to give him a cuddle and fuss. I have three babies of my own, and I couldn’t imagine life without them. Dogs really are man’s best friend 🙂
