FOWC with Fandango — Lady

Today’s word is “lady.”

The Lady my post refers to was a german shepherd belonging to my Uncle.
He also had a black labrador which was several years younger, but he had always had two dogs.
Lady was getting on, she was around 11 and her health was beginning to decline.
The lab was used to having company, so it was decided to get a puppy and have three dogs for the duration of Lady’s last few months.
However, they didn’t reckon on Lady’s maternal instincts.
As soon as the pup came into the house, Lady rallied and took charge.
She lived to be 15 and they found her ‘asleep’ in her basket with the labrador and her charge curled up beside her.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
