an old lady

Frekles.jpg

An old lady, gentle, calm, loves it comfy, needs a lot of love and would love to have an own garden for some years. I met Freckles at the beginning of the year in a private sanctuary and fell in love with her at once. Such a lovely old lady, about 9-10 years old, relaxed within the hubbub there and so friendly. Some weeks ago she had to have one eye removed, but that doesn't bother her , cause the eye was blind for some months before. She's healthy, fully vaccinated.
Also in this way I try to find a caring, maybe older couple who could give her a home for her last years. She doesn't need long walks, a garden and a cosy place on a sofa for the winter would be fine - and love!
Would love to take her myself but we already have 4 and 2 are rather jealous. Please think about it and / or share.
Thank you so much!!

Frekles after her eye removal. She's fine and it doesn't bother her at all.

Please share, the cold season is comming. Frekles is cool, relaxed, friendly and good tempered. Maybe somebody wants to meet her, she's in the PPDS shelter near Mandria and we can go there.
I'm sure you'll fall in love!

She sounds like a fantastic dog, only wish I could ...adopt her.

Dogs have been in my life for years and years now, my current dog, a Mastiff with a bit of Rottweiler is the most lovable, obedient and friendly dog I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Have him for about 4 years now, or rather I ...stole him about 4 years ago.

I had just had to put my lovable Boxer to sleep, poor thing had cancer in his throat, could not eat and slowly begun to become immobile.
Broke my heart, had him for 13 years since he was a little puppy, a month old.

Shortly afterwards on my way home each evening I used to pass outside this caravan site, tied up in the freezing cold was this poor thing, Lennie my Mastiff, skin and bone he was, Drummed up enough courage and one early evening I knocked at the caravan, a burly man answered the door, I knew immediately that this gipsy type was not to be messed with. Poor thing I said to him, he is all skin and bone, mind your fing business he responded !! Made my way home but just could not get this wretched dog out of my mind.

I begged my son to give me a lift to the caravan site, having my self drunk my nightly bottle of red.

Cut him loose I did and brought him home.
Its as if Lennie is grateful for being liberated. He is now a very healthy large dog, loves all and has a good life, a double bed in his own bedroom. Take him to work each day and just loves seeing people.
He would mind you be absolutely useless as a guard dog .

Dogs are indeed mans best friend. I do hope that someone somewhere gives Frekles a home.
Do let us know.

Thank you for your story and for your courage to steal to rescue a life!
We also lost 2 of our beloved dogs in spring within 9 weeks, also from cancer. It broke our heart and still does. Our 5 were our 'gang' and it is unbelievable how quiet the house became, although 3 are still here. I started the work as a volunteer 2 months later in this private run rather small sanctuary and it helped.
We have been in Cyprus for 8 years now and although it is my hubbies homeland, we doubted if we should stay for ever again and again. Times went worse after we arrived, so none of our plans worked.
Hubby's family has changed over the 25 years he was abroad, also the relationships between people like he remembered it from former times. For him, the Cypriot, many things proved a disappointing choice and it was sad to see him loosing so many of the dreams he had, when we came. We were and are always struggeling with money and there is no sign, that this could change. All this was not the plan
Instead of all our dreams 4 more doggies found us and the 5 have become our family. Means several restrictions in our daily life, quite a lot of people who don't understand it and even stopped visiting us, cause the dogs are always around.
Now that we burried our 2 'babies' in our garden, we know we have to stay, can't leave them alone.
We have our small house in the middle of nowhere with a lot of land around, the view to the sea and our doggies who show their love every day.
So no regrets at all. Our wonderful 'Alma' that we brought with us and who went over the rainbow bridge in February incorporated all the others that we rescued from the road with so much love, that it is a kind of legacy now for us to help others who are treated so badly in this country without having a chance.
Understand if people say it's crazy, but I think, we found the reason to stay.

''The dead open the eyes of the living''

Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.”

Frekles is not a 'beauty', she's old and she is a soul dog.

I left Cyprus many years ago, 1961 , now at the glorious age of 69 I dream of my eventual permanent reurn to Cyprus, I visit regularly but I dream of the day when I get a one way ticket.

My late wife, an English lady that shared my life for 46 years, fell in love with Cyprus on her very first visit in 1966. True, Cyprus and Cypriots have changed since my boyhood years, however Im a lucky guy that I have been able to embrace the changes and accept life as it now is. Being the talkative sort of guy I make friends quite easily , I do accept the changes and I do passionately love Cyprus.

Its also worth mentioning that Cypriots attitudes to animals and animal welfare have improved a great deal, you see so many Cypriots caring for their pets.

I do hope that a loving home is soon found for Frekles, would love to see her on my next visit in early November.
