The idea of sharing our doggy with another family came up by chance. We didn’t want to leave our dog Kolya in kennels or with someone who ‘was doing us a favour’.
“How could we leave him with someone we didn’t know?” Therefore, going on a holiday was potentially a problem. Even some work weeks were a problem.
We decided that there very few options out there.
I decided to find someone who wanted the experience of having a dog. Firstly, I considered families with children, who I already knew. Because this seemed like the ideal plan. I didn’t want our doggy to miss playing with children.
I shared my idea with some friends and word of mouth, and they have asked their friends.
That’s how we found Anna. We agreed a trial day so Anna could meet Kolya.
We brought our doggy to Anna’s home and left him there with all Kolya’s care instructions: feeding, what commands he knew etc.
There was a lot to discuss, but it was fun. Anna looked very keen and excited.
The next morning, I received lots of photographs of them in the park on a long walk, then having breakfast.
He was very happy to see us: wagging his tail, licking our faces, running around happily. However we could definitely tell he had a great time with Anna too.
Some time later we organised a holiday and Anna was available to look after Kolya again.
I knew he liked her, however, I had not expected my Kolya, who is very attached to me, to jump out of the car and run straight to Anna and her boyfriend.
When our holiday was finished, Anna bought Kolya home to us.
Kolya waved his tail, was obviously happy to see us. He quickly ran home. I liked that! I wasn’t thinking that he might like Anna more than us – what a relief .
Anna would send us lots of photographs and funny texts about how they were spending their time without us, while we were away.
It was fantastic discovering a new friend.
Anna confided in me and felt she felt uplifted mentally and physically – Kolya had been such good company.
I was very touched that our loving Kolya had had such a good impact upon Anna’s life and Anna on his. Anna now shares Kolya whenever we need to or whenever Anna would like to. Share Your Pet today - Live Love Pet
I'm burning aviation fuel
And my foots through the floor
You know shes cruisin140, she'd do even more
I'm burning solid rubber
And don't take no bull-SHIT
Cos my wheels are Rollin
If you're coming come quick!
God this is a simple sounding, catchy but real heavy album. Im slowly getting through each Saxon album and o don't think I've listened to remotely half of em. I've listened to Strong Arm of the Law and despite fans praising it, it does nothing for me especially the title track. Am I gonna burn at the stake for saying that?
