Someone had abandoned a dog at a lonely stretch of road near my home, and four lovely puppies were born a week later. Three were brownies and one a mix of black and white. The puppies were housed inside a roadside scupper and the mother dog would show her displeasure when someone went near. If it rained, I worried the puppies would be washed away, if not drowned.
A friend posted photographs of the puppies on the internet and within a week, all the puppies were adopted but not the mother dog. I named her Ah Girl. Ah Girl was lonely and hungry because she could not find food, so I fed her twice daily. She would wait for my arrival at the T-junction where I would give her meals. Each time I left, she would attempt to prevent me from leaving.
Two weeks later, I saw that she was wounded. I thought in time, it would heal. Instead, it got worse. So I took her home and gave her medical treatment. After the wound healed, she was spayed to join the rest of my dogs. My wife and I agreed that this would be our last addition. We already had six adult dogs.
Ah Girl is 15-years-old next month and she is the only one still with us.
