In 2020 I’m answering a list of 52 journal questions. Read about it here.
Write about someone you love.
I want to tell you about someone who is very loved in our family – our dog, Biggles.
Our beautiful boy turns 14 this coming July. He is a schnoodle (poodle and schnauzer cross), although he’s a little more poodle than schnauzer because his mum was also a schnoodle, while his dad a poodle.
We wanted a small dog but needed one that was good with allergies. After a lot of research decided a schnoodle was the perfect cross. But there were no breeders nearby so we hunted across the country until we came across this photo.
And fell in love. The only trouble was, he was already claimed. About a month later we had another look and discovered the sale had fallen through and Biggles was ours.
We had to wait until he was big enough to fly (he was in another state) so at three months of age he made his way to us.
Biggles is as perfect as a dog can be. He may be old now, but all the extra care he needs now has been paid back to us a million times over with the love and devotion he’s given us.
While he might belong to the family, he’s really my dog and I love him to bits.
Do you have a pet?
