I am pleased to add this update which I should have done at the time:

The lady in question went back to the shelter for Teddy. She was living on her boat part-time and had managed to work something out with a friend.
We saw her one evening a few months later or rather heard her, calling anxiously for Teddy who had gone romping off down the dog walk in the dark and she couldn’t see him.

Armed with torches, leads and biscuits, five of us helped in trying to locate him.
When MOH had his springer, we played a game where the dogs would look for each other, so Hubby sent Maggie off to ‘find him’ as we could hear him barking and hoped he hadn’t fallen into the marina.
Maggie came back being chased by a very excited Teddy who was swooped up into the arms of his owner, completely unperturbed by the smelly state of him. He hadn’t gone swimming, but had found something rather delightful to roll in.

She later sold her boat but she and Teddy were inseparable.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I love happy endings like this one. I am with you 100%. I have NO time for anyone who abuses, mistreats, ignores, abandons or doesn’t care properly for any animal. There should be a database of these individuals so they can never get another pet.

  2. I’m so glad to read this update – it seems it worked out for everyone!
