I’m trying at the age of 91 to get over having just lost my beautiful tricolour Border Collie bitch, who was 16 and a half. The poor darling became paralysed due to a slip on grass when she was five years old, and the vet warned me then that she might have problems in old age. She is buried in my garden with spring flowers all around her; I still talk to her every day.
Would there be any chance of me being able to offer a wonderful home to an oldie? How would I go about it? I live alone in my own house. I’d love some advice to cheer me up. Lucky was my shadow. She understood every word and was adored by all who met her, even other dogs and cats.
