- Many people dislike or are afraid of dogs. Find out from your neighbours how they feel about you getting a pet. Ask them what you can do to avoid any upsets.
- Ensure your dog doesn’t mess their area and if he does clean it up.
- Build a proper size kennel and run so your dog can be enclosed when needed. This ensures his safety and that of neighbours.
- Train your dog daily and go for classes if you don’t know how to. The more training you do the better behaved dog you will have. Most people don’t appreciate dirty paws on office clothes.
- Listen to your neighbours complaints and resolve them amicably. A pet’s behaviour is the owners responsibility. Neighbours can do distressing things to animals when they feel they aren’t heard!
- Leaving dogs alone for long periods can result in barking due to boredom and distress. Hours of barking dogs are NOT acceptable in any situation. Be prepared to adjust your lifestyle, and if you aren’t then a cat could be a solution.
- Ask your landlord to put it in writing pets are allowed. Check if they object to large size dogs.
- Ask yourself the question: if I was forced to move would I make sure I can take my pet to the next place? If not, it is perhaps better not to take a pet unless you have a backup plan.
Amber-eyed Malaika didn’t fall for blue-eyed boy Max at once. They grew affectionate through the fence and once together realised they are soul mates.
Passionate embraces, wild play, and similar attitudes to very small (not friendly) and larger (very friendly) pups. Malaika after many months has discovered walking on leash is super fun: Max gives her the courage to do this. They are a special needs couple who want a permanent honeymoon suite in your house. We would love them to go together in a home without other dogs and experienced dog lovers who understand. They are fine with children 14 yrs and above.

June 8 celebrates National Best Friends Day, a day to honor that one special being you call your “best friend”. This day is a time to show them how much you appreciate them, how special and important they are to you and how you cherish their friendship.
“Best friends share extremely strong interpersonal ties with each other.” (Wikipedia)
Everyone has that one close friend, the one that you can count on to be there for you, the one you want to share your secrets with, the one you want to do fun things with, the one you want to just hang out with, that one person is your best friend. And let’s face it: sometimes this Best Friend is not even human! No matter how we look or how moody we are, our pets offer us unconditional love and for many people, they support us through difficult times, understanding us better than we do ourselves
“When it hurts to look back and you’re scared to look ahead, you can look beside you and your best friend will be there.” (author unknown)
HOW TO OBSERVE
Celebrate National Best Friends Day by letting your best friends know how much they mean to you! Use #BestFriendsDay to post on social media.
Unlike humans, who judge by appearance and ostentatious success and richness, dogs are not interested in such earthly criteria. For them, whatever you wear, however you look and whatever you do (be it cleaning public toilets or whatever else), they still think you’re the best human in the world, because they really love their humans.
In these drawings, you’ll see the way people and dogs see the world. Perhaps there is something that humans can learn from dogs.
Woof Post: How Dog Sees You
Hug Your Cat Day is one of those pleasingly straightforward holidays. Quite simply, it is a day in which cat owners everywhere are encouraged to hug their cats. The more dedicated amongst them will not need this encouragement, of course, but it is always good to be reminded of our feline friends.
The obvious downside to the day as that people without cats may be left out. This need not be the case, however – it should be straightforward enough to simply adapt it into “Hug Someone Else’s Cat Day”. If you are still looking for a cat, Twinkle might be able to come to your rescue as she is still up for adoption!
So, whether or not you are the proud housemate of a purring kitty, Hug Your Cat Day is the perfect excuse to put a bit of warmth and companionship into your life. No matter what’s going on around you, no matter how bad or troubling things get, you can always count on your furry friend to be there for you.
Below are some of the cats that found a new home thanks to TNR Trust.
