Our Christmas Cracker

Post by Amber on Mon Jan 13, 2014 1:59 pm

Following on from my comments about various SPA sites in the Pets section we found a refuge at Clermont Ferrond that had something we fell in love with. Meet Cracker:



It took him about a week to win over Freya, but they are friends now:



Both parents (Labrador father, Spaniel mother) and their 6 puppies had been found abandoned in an empty house and the puppies were less than a week off starvation.

Looks gorgeous, and with that parentage, I should think will have a fantastic temperament.

Hi Amber. Well done!! When a puppy looks at you like that (first picture), it's just impossible to resist, isn't it? We found a dog (Berger belge) at the SPA in Gueret and she's proved to be absolutely adorable. We already had a GSD and the two of them are inseparable. It's so hard to understand how people can abandon them. I'm sure he'll repay your generosity and love many times over.

The old yellow Labrador in the background was also rescued - he'd been taken away, aged 3, from his owner by a French neighbour because he was beating him. For ages after we brought him home he was terrified when anyone raised their arm near him, it was pathetic to see the way he cringed.

Unfortunately he's now suffering with arthritis in his back end and can't play with Freya (the black Labrador x Gordon Setter, aged 3) like he used to - hence the new arrival.

You can see in this picture a scar above his left eye where he'd been hit with a chopper  Twisted Evil

There are very few things that move me to want to use physical action but cruelty does it for me in spades.

Thank you Red, but it's not difficult when they are such lovely animals. Teddy was a problem when we first had him - very territorial towards other dogs and always escaping but once he realised he was wanted and loved he calmed down and castration made a big difference to his temperament.  Unfortunately young Master Cracker is learning bad habits from Mistress Freya - you can see from her face she knows she shouldn't be on the chair!  Laughing

I can understand that. It did the same for me.
