The Dog Blog

Posted on Posted in The Dog Blog

Tonks, my dog, isn’t actually my dog. Technically she’s my daughter’s, but we have permanent custody of her (Tonks that is, not my daughter, who is a grown up and can do what she likes). Tonks is a rescue dog and looks mostly like a black lab, with a bit of German Shepherd thrown in. I never wanted a dog but years of attrition from my wife and daughter finally wore me down. Now, Tonks is my fourth most favourite person in the world (sorry Dad) and I love her dearly.  As I write this she is staring at me, wagging her tail and trying to guilt me into rubbing her tummy…which I have now just done. She brings so much pleasure to myself and Louise that I thought it would be nice to share some of the love with the world, hence the blog. So I thought I would start by giving three key facts about Tonks: 1) Yes, she is named after the Harry Potter character. 2) She is badly behaved. 3) She is often referred to as Weeney-Woo, which will be the subject of a future blog post. 4) She just did the mother of all burps. (I know I was only going to share three facts but I didn’t know she was going to grace me with such an epic bodily function.) So that’s a bit about Tonks, my dog. Feel free to share three random facts about your pets. Cheers, Gareth and Tonks.
