Yesterday was four years since my mum left us to be an angel. Four years ago I got my first westie, Willie arrived a year later and three years ago Three White dogs and a Pig was created. It is has made its entrance on twitter, Instagram and wordpress. We are not the hugest group/page but it’s never been about numbers for us, our friends (you) have been with us during laughter and tears and have changed and grew with us as we have.
We have continued to foster dogs along the way gaining us the nickname of name of ‘The Retreat’ as more lost souls have come into our care on their way to forever homes.
We have tried wherever possible to support those who we can by fostering, buying from fundraising auctions and giving donations but also endeavoured to be meek. We do what we can and what feels right. We are not heros or attention seekers, we just want to make a difference to that one dog, one at a time but we could not do it without you.
Life is not perfect, it is messy. Mental health is all around us, as is animal cruelty and plethora of other horrific events. If we can find a smile in reading one of our funny posts, a feeling of normality (no such thing as normal) or comfort and compassion together, we are doing okay.
Our posts may not be daily or super exciting all the time but we are here.
And of course me (the mad dog lady)
