I got Stephen to drop these off at Chew Chew's this afternoon — photographs I took for the patrons a while back.
Amongst them, a retired working dog called Knuckles, an Australian Cattle Dog who worked on a farm all his life until he was too old to work anymore. Poor Knuckles has arthritis and has to see the vet every fortnight for his medication, and he is partially deaf. Despite that, he has found a good home and now lives with MS, an elderly gentleman, who adopted him the time when he retired from being a working dog.
There is so much love, respect and trust Knuckles shows towards MS — the bond between the two is hard to describe. I dread to think where Knuckles would have ended up if not for MS.
Good men (and women) like MS and good dogs like Knuckles keep me motivated in my work.
