There are two nice young men living next door to me. Mark loves to garden, Dan loves football and works a couple of days a week in a local hardware store. They have Community Services carers with them each day, to assist them with their daily activities.
I happened to look out my kitchen window and saw a scene that warmed my heart. Mark was fooling around with a lovely Border Collie, kicking a rapidly deflating ball for the energetic dog to retrieve.
It was then I noticed that his right hand rear leg was missing. This surely did not slow him down.
Mark said the dog had just wandered into their yard. There is no collar, nor sign of a chip. They’re still out there, fooling around, as boys and dogs were meant to do.
