"Oakley (Debucher Zachary) is 16 today. I rehomed him exactly 4 years ago – just 4 days before his 12th birthday. He had gone into rescue because of a family break up. Vivien Phillips had sent an email around about him, and it was my casual remark about this when I was at Honeybottom Kennels having my PBGV Zinna groomed, that led to me rehoming him, as Gavin Robertson had taken him into breed rescue. He was in very poor condition and I thought at the time I would have him either 3 months or 3 years – and here we are, 4 years on! He is getting a bit slow but still enjoys his now short walk and he has Pickle, a Dandie Dinmont I have rehomed, as a companion. I now hope he will make it to 17!"
