After four German Shepherds and a multitude of cats over the years, Hub put his foot down...‘no more pets!’
Of course since then we have had 4 Iguanas, but they don't count since they seemed to only arrive in my backyard to give birth and then leave, so I was set on a petless home...
and geckos don’t count, they’re always around just eating bugs.
So, when Hub suggested inheriting a 5 yr old German Shepherd I have to say I didn’t take him seriously.
I look at him and ask...“You do remember Duke, George, Tilley and you’re all time favourite, Saint Dugan?”
Hub continues to sleep soundly as I get up, wash, dress and proceed downstairs with dog close behind excited to do her business.
She immediately races up the stairs and pushes the door open and proceeds to set her wet nose on the side of the bed.
Not getting a response, Luqui starts to whine and then breaths in and out next to his face.
A short time later Hub staggers down the stairs to find Luqui waiting patiently.
Giving them words of encouragement, I open the door and wave them off...“Have a good morning Sunshine and a lovely walk...You too Hub!”
I lean against the wall and see the sun start to poke it’s head into the sky...watching a man and his dog walk slowly into the sunrise.
Just a day in the life of 2 Canadians living and loving it in Mazatlan...our home in paradise!
