Arrival Story:
Poor China was very badly treated. She and 4 full and half siblings were kept in shocking conditions, the person who rescued them said he had never seen dogs so traumatised. We had not intended getting another dog (we already had Megan, a blue Dane) but we saw China curled up under her rescuer's chair and our hearts melted. The rest, as they say, is history.

China is a harlequin Dane, she has beautiful black patches on her. She's small because of her poor starved start in life but she is about as bright as a dog can be. She runs rings round Henry who thinks he is top dog but isn't.

China's pearls of wisdom

China has gone to the Bridge

It is with a very sad heart that I have to announce China's departure for the Bridge this morning. She was an old, old girl at 10-1/2 years and was becoming quite creaky. Having said that, she still had a good quality of life and the pain meds relieved the aches and pains of arthritis.

However, last night China had a heart attack and was clearly a very sick dog. My husband and China's dearest daddy took her to the vet this morning and it was clear that we had arrived at the end of the road for her. She passed to the Bridge peacefully in her daddy's arms.

We are devastated that our precious girl has gone. I know the pain of grief will grow less as the days pass but we will never, ever forget this beautiful dog who overcame such an horrendous start in life.

Bless you darling, always in our hearts.

China's Law #51
If you're out for a walk with your mom and you hear really weird screechy noises on the other side of the trees, don't investigate. Get your mom home to safety as soon as possible.

If there's a spot of sun shining into the room, I get first dibs.
