    Well I used to have a surrogate Grandad & I used to annoy him something wicked but he never complained. He was foreign, came from England but was the same as all us Spanish dogs & he & his brother , who died before I was born, were adopted also.
    Bud was 16, & I arrived on his birthday 6 years ago.
    Bud went to sleep two months ago.It was for the best as old age had caught up with him & his list of ailments was long . I miss him .

    I also had a surrogate Mum, López,who was Spanish & had been adopted like me.
    She wouldn't put up with my nonsense & constantly wanting to play.She used to hunt like a Lion & nothing would think of entering our domain.
    She could always catch me, just like she could take a bird from the sky.
    López was 13 & went to sleep last Friday. I've never been the only dog since I was adopted, when I wandered in all those years ago.:cry:
    I am sad & a bit lost on my own but not as bad as the bloke we let look after us.

    Sad for you. Would you consider adopting another? I have contacts with Terrier SOS and they are always looking for suitable parents particularly in Spain.

    You never forget them but you remember the happy times.

    They had a great life with you.

    We still have one & that is enough at present. We have many dog charities around here & many are sent all over Europe. Unfortunately We get many abandoned dogs around the house & many are taken in by neighbours, all of whom are Spanish & get just as angry about the dumping !
    That's where all ours came from. The wife is adamant that she doesn't want anymore at present.
    Thank you all for your kind thoughts. Alf is still unused to being alone & whenever I go out I have been taking him with me which in itself is difficult as everything is a novelty too him as he only ever went out to the vets before. people walking frighten him.:D
