Growing up, nothing changed and over more than twenty years, she adopted or rescued a pot pourri of dogs, from a three legged terrier to an abandoned grey hound to a Spanish Podenco. In short she is a ‘dog lady’.
This is the story of her journey through life with some of the mutts and mongrels who shared it; from the alluring to the alarming, the tranquil to the timid, the serene to the certifiable.
Meet Chris' dogs from over the years; Fudge the geriatric Labrador, Bracken the ten stone Rottweiler found abandoned and dangerous; but most of all,meet the Gang of Four, Seamus, Shannon, Minnie and Duncan the Canine Tripod.
