My second dream, is to be a writer and one day to write a book. Unfortunately, due to a very noisy English class who never got anything done at school, I learnt only how to write excellent introductions and never how to finish a story. So, over the years following secondary school, I would write hundreds of wonderful story introductions and then run out of ideas by the third chapter.
As a rule, I never enter into anything lightheartedly and when I brought Caesar home for the first time, I had read no less than five different books about owning a dog plus a plethora of internet sites! The problem, I found, was that none of them seemed to be about rescuing Caesar. Many assumed that your dog would automatically follow certain rules or obey certain commands and I was never able to find a book that covered any number of Caesar's problems. For a time, I felt very alone and wondered if I had bitten off more than I could chew but as I explained earlier, I never enter into things lightheartedly and could not bring myself to give up on the lovable rogue that we had adopted. Instead, I decided to write a book, recording everything that had happened to us and share it with the world. I want people who rescue difficult dogs, whatever breed they might be, to know that they're not alone. I created the blog 'Saving Caesar' as a way of touching other owners. It's not an advice site but a place where we can each share our experiences and, where possible, find humour in each other's tribulations. After all with Caesar, if I didn't laugh, I'd cry most of the time
I hope you enjoy the blog and I'd love to hear your comments and to hear your own stories.
