For years we had a large bush under our kitchen window which we called the fish bush because of the smell of the blossom, it is actually a Pyracantha. When Mack arrived we renamed it the Mack bush as he spent every spare minute laying under it, rain or shine.
Mack loved his bush so much he would dig out little hollows to lay in so that he was comfortable, because of this I removed the grass and replaced it with gravel so he could be nice and comfy. As I have posted before, Mack died on the 25th of July last year. Since Mack died I started to notice a change in his bush, the leaves lost their gloss and this winter the berries started to shrivel before the blackbirds could eat them? when spring arrived and the bush was devoid of blossom I knew the bush had died. I am sure it was caused by a disease or a parasite but the timing makes me think that perhaps Mother nature took the bush for Mack. Yesterday I dug out the stump and planted a new bush, it wont be a “Mack bush” as it is a different variety but it will bring back some colour, give the birds somewhere to hide and you never know in time it may become the “Hamish bush”?
Today I am featuring Ruby who is in the care of Irish retriever rescue.
Age: 3 years old
Sex: female, not yet spayed
Ruby is a golden retriever/collie crossbreed and was rescued by IRR from a pound.
This lady is quite nervous and she does exhibit some collie personality traits
Ruby’s dream home
ideally Ruby needs to be rehomed as an only dog with someone who has
experience with collies, who will be patient and consistent with her continued
training and energy requirements. She’s not recommended for young children.
Behaviour with other animals – not good with cats or rabbits, ok with other dogs.
Fostered in – Northampton.
