Hello, my name is Victor.
I found myself in the pound late last year. It was cold and noisy, I was very lonely and frightened in there so I wished hard every day that I could leave. One day my wish came true. Someone came and took me for a drive in their car. I was still scared and wondered what was going on but somehow I knew things were changing for the better.
After a long drive I arrived at more kennels but these were special as they belonged to ĎThe Senior Staffy Clubí and that meant that I was safe and that they would look after me.
I had to go to that vets place, itís not my favourite but I knew it had to be done and I can be bribed with treats!. I heard the vet say that I need to put on some weight before I could have Ďthatí operation, (the one called 'neutering' I think!) but all the time I was in the kennels I was so stressed I couldnít put on any weight.
I had lots of lovely cuddles, treats, toys, walks and Christmas presents and even a Christmas dinner but nothing worked, then one day one of my walkers took me for a drive in her car to a ladyís house who I had never met, well...she is now my frosty (foster) Mum!
The first thing she did was give me a bath, so I returned the favour and shook off all my excess water over her...hee-hee, hopefully she wonít do that again, although I did secretly like it and I smelt so nice afterwards.
The next few weeks I had lovely walks, lovely food, lovely cuddles. I finally put some weight on and I have now had Ďthatí operation and even had my teeth cleaned! I am now ready to find my furever home...yipee!
I think I would like a home where I can have lots of cuddles, I am a lazy little monkey in the mornings, I do love a lie in, but at my age I think that is allowed. My frosty Mum thinks Iím funny because when Iím in my bed I manage to get the blanket right over me so Iím completely covered with maybe a foot or a tail poking out, she says I am a bit of a grump sometimes though when she tries to get me out of bed!....she says I am just like Victor Meldrew!
In the car I like to chatter a bit in true Victor Meldrew style, but I donít mind being left for a few hours in the house, well that means I can snuggle down in my bed undisturbed...did I say I like my bed A LOT!
I do like to be warm, I donít like to go out in the cold without my coat on either...brrrrr!
I enjoy my walks and saying hello to everyone, although I am not too keen on other dogs, so I would prefer a home of my own. My frosty Mum says I snuffle when I trot along...thatís normal though, right?
Iím looking forward to meeting my new family very soon
Lots of love
