Let Sleeping Berts Lie

Did I mention that Bert is very fond of his bed? This picture was taken this day (my birthday) a year ago. His companions are Harry the cat, Rosie the collie and Danny the champion of the world and all round best dog ever. Sadly he died earlier this year at the age of 16. He was quite a character. On the 17th of March a friend, her dog, myself and Danny went to the Mid-Antrim Animal Sanctuary to choose another dog. We'd looked after an elderly stray spaniel for six months and she'd died of cancer. There was a dog-shaped space in my life and Danny was getting so old. So as I said we found ourselves in Antrim looking at homeless dogs....
