And then there is The Dude, our sweet, beautiful foster for life Dudley who came into rescue near death and now lives a life of luxury.


Dudley turned 10 last month and is doing very well, he rules the roost from whichever spot he chooses in the house, everyone listens to Dudley and no one misbehaves. He is adored and revered by 1 year old Border Collie Pip who thinks that Dudley can do no wrong. And Dude that he is he deigns to let her wiggle herself by his neck and lick his lips for as long as he will let her. He is no longer very active but when he’s on the move Pip is never far.

Dudley is more a pleasure than a challenge (well they all are a pleasure) but still he is an elder with most problems facing those in his age group.
