    I'm a retired special school teacher, although technically, I should have over 20 years left to work. Unfortunately, I had to retire on health grounds in my late 30's, which also resulted in my having to move back in with my Mam - the positive side of this though is that now I am not working long hours and am now home all day, I was able to get a dog.

    My love of dogs began as a child thanks to my nana's best friend who I used to call Aunty May. She was passionate about dogs from the time she got her first German Shepherd as a pup - Robbie. I used to love visiting her with my nana as a child, and learned just what fun, intelligent and loving animals dogs were. From then on, I always wanted a dog, but as there was nobody home all day, it never seemed fair for us to get one.

    When my Mam retired, she got a mixed breed terrier pup, Tess. She was quite a timid dog, but exceptionally loyal and loving. Even though, initially I was away at university (and then ended up living 2 hours away for the next 10 years), you would have thought Tess was my dog. We had a really special bond. She lived to be 16, and sadly we lost her in early June 2004. I was devastated.

    In the month following, the house just felt so empty, and didn't feel like a home any more without a dog to greet me. I knew I would have to get another dog - not to replace Tess (she was, like every dog, unique), but to fill the void she'd left.

    There was a local family who's dog had had quite a large litter, and we had hoped to adopt a bitch. However, all ten pups were boys!! On visiting, one very confident, cheeky little pup was determined to get and keep our attention. It was complete love at first sight, and I simply loved his confidence! That was the end of July 2004, and we brought Mac home in August.

    From the moment we got him home he settled straight in. I had expected him to be very shy and unsettled first, as many new pups are when they first arrive at their new home. However, Mac made our home his on that very first day, and now it feels as though we've had him forever!! As you can see from my avatar pic, he does enjoy snuggling up.
