Mrs. Nesbitt’s ABC-Wednesday

Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photo-meme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week. I’m always curious to what you come up with!

The challenging letter of this week is D and I’ve chosen for DELIGHT

I want to introduce you to the greatest DELIGHT of my life, the living kind that is.
My dogs… The first one is a Scottish Shepherd dog called Brego and the second one is a ladycat called Precious and the third one is French King Poodle called Noah.

Precious is born in our home but Brego and Noah are shelterdogs. April 28th 1983 we started living together and on that same day we got 2 kittens, followed by many others. We also had lots of different birds in the house.

November 9th 1984 I quit my job for maternity leave and the next day we went to a shelter to get a dog, ever since that day we had dogs as well.

We made the choice to never buy a puppy from a breeder because the shelters are always crowded and that animals in such places need our help and love much more that to put money in somebody’s hand to create more animals which partly end up in misery.

Noah is the eldest or our trio, he celebrated his 14h birtday, january 2 last. Precious will celebrate her 14th birthday coming march 28th and Brego will celebrate his 9th birthday coming july 9th.

To have animals in the house is always one of the biggest joys. We had lots of them during the past years and we would like to have much more but we have to be realistic as wel. There is just not enough space for it. If we had had the space we would have oned even larger dogs, my favorites are the great Danes for example. We always search for addions to our family which will fit the best, thinking of not only their size but more so their needs, which differs enormously per breed.

Like I wrote already, my greatest living delight are animals, all kinds. One of my dreams has always been to have a shelter of my own but for that one needs a lot of money and that we never had. So in our ‘little’ way we try to do the best we can for animals in need by donating money and taking them in our home.

Our household is ruled by them 😉 we adjust ourselves around them and their needs.

Animals are precious and vulnerable ccreatures, they need us! If I could change one thing in the world then it would be that no animal ever would have to suffer again in any way!

Have a nice ABC-Wednesday-day / – week ~

  1. Melody,
    Your Doggies are a delight and does you cat think she is a dog too ?
    So pleased to meet your ‘Darlings’

    Best wishes,
    ABCW team.

    1. Hi Di….

      Indeed they are, I love them to bits as they say in the English language 😉
      Yes you are right, she often does….. she often stands on the table where the dogfood stands and eats those instead of her own 😉

      Thank you Di, likewise to you

  2. You’ve got me with this post, Melody! I’m a dog lover and my daughter loves cats, having two. My Tegan is an English yellow Labrador and is smaller than the American breeds. She is my companion and we have such good times together. She’s very smart (like poodles!) and we have our little routines every day. She loves playing Frisbee or catch with the ball and I try to take her to the park where she can run free for a while every day! Have a “delightful” week!

    1. 😉 Thank you Leslie.

      My dogs like to play to…. so as often as possible we take them out for walks and play-moments. In the house playing goes as well to with lesser space but still ….they often act like clowns and our cat joins the gentlemen in doing silly things.

      Thank you, wishing you the same with Tegan !!

  3. they do bring unconditional delight ~ All three of your doggies are beautiful! ~ What a ‘delight’ to see so much love in one place ~ Great post and photos for D ~ thanks,

    Wishing you a Happy and Peaceful week ~ ^_^

  4. I do agree, Melody. It is wonderful to have pets in the house. My cat, Callie, meets me at the bedroom door every morning, and Bruce, my sweet dog, comes bounding down the hallway ready to go out for a quick morning run. We have always had pets, and cherish them.

  5. I couldn’t imagine my life without animals. When our son was little we had two cats, a dog and a guinea pig. After the dog passed away we still had the 2 cats and then inherited the 2 from my son when he moved to Amsterdam they should stay 3 months and that is almost 10 years ago !!

    1. Me neither Gattina. We had lots of animals over the past years, always much fun.

      🙂 I think they have a good life with you, better then in Amsterdam perhaps?

    1. 😉 He indeed was restless, he wanted to go further 😉 Well seen Joyce!

      We are to …. if we could we would fetch much more animals from shelters.

    1. Yesssss 😉

      Well… you are welcome to…. ofcourse…. but a be a little careful with Brego, let hem get used to you first 😉

Lucht je ❤️
