Who Rescues Who?

Honey and Bert

That’s Bert and Honey, two little rescue dogs who both came to us with a bunch of issues obviously because of what came before – we can only guess what that entailed, but like the rest of us their life experiences shape their behaviour and how they are today.

After our other poor fella, Bing, passed away five years ago there was a period of a few months when the house was empty when we missed his presence, but being practical we decided that our crazy lifestyles didn’t suit having a dog in the house, so maybe that was it.

A few months later Honey was found cowering under the wheel of a truck on Academy Street in Cork, she was photographed and this was shared on Twitter and of course she was spotted by Dee and on the 21st December she found a new home!

The poor pet was petrified and she pretty much spent the first year in between a few lengthy spells of running away (one lasted 2.5 months!!), hiding behind the shed or anything else she could hide behind.

To this day she is still really nervous – god knows what happened beforehand?

We brought Bert from a dog rescue place a few months later to keep the “nervous” Honey company when we were at work and realised very quickly that while he is naturally friendly he is also very nervous, so we need to be quite careful of him with people, as he has learnt the very hard way that he needs to protect himself.

There has been more than once (100 times at least!!) when we have said ….”rescue dogs, never again!

After nearly a year of Covid home working, it’s been pretty much the four of us, all day very day together and we have our little routines and our moments, and I’ve realised that this boy who never quite got what all the fuss was about having a dog, just adores both of them and I wonder..

Who actually rescues who?
