Back in April, Mummy went with Afdera to pick up Marley from the Battersea Dogs Home. This was Marley after he had just arrived at his forever home. His eyes were bulging with excitement! He was, they said, over-sexed! He couldn’t stop humping any dog his size – he didn’t dare hump me but poor George got it all.
It’s been six months since he had his balls chopped off. Yesterday, he came to visit Mummy – who is his godmother – and he’s altogether a different dog. He has calmed down so much but of course neither George nor I were at home to greet him.
May’s comment: Marley is a Battersea Rescue. He is for sure a Yorkshire Terrier crossed with a Bichon Frise plus, plus, plus. They think he has five different breeds in him.
He was probably abused in some manner – evidenced by his reaction to anyone raising their voices, he would run to hide. But he’s very much in his forever home now. He has become a lovely companion for his owner, Afdera who lost her beloved Harry-Harry earlier this year.They’re inseparable.You’re home, Marley. You’re going to be alright.
