This is my fur baby Jack, who came from the SPCA in Newtown as a 14-week-old puppy and is now 8-months-old. He is a Working Bearded Collie which is different from a normal Bearded Collie. For a long time after getting Jack I swore he was going to be an Irish Wolf Hound! Originally I didn’t want a dog as we had previously had a black lab who died 5 years ago at the age of 12 but it was through the constant nagging from my husband and daughter that I gave in. Needless to say Jack is my baby and thanks to him, my stress levels have gone way down – he is such a chilled out and relaxed dog. Jack has been the best kind of puppy we could’ve got, even from day one he seemed like such an old soul, he never really chewed or barked etc. like I would except a normal puppy to do.
Because of Jack, I started a face book page called Dog Lovers of Porirua where we go on weekly doggie play dates/walks, share information, and recommendations. I’ve met some awesome people who like me, treat their dogs as one of their babies. Dogs can make such a difference in your life and I’m so pleased that my husband and daughter wore me down :-)
