While having breakfast this morning my wife reminded me it was three years ago this very day we came across Pepe wandering about the dirt road out at the countryside place. With no owner in sight we had to assume due to his state, he had been abandoned.
We couldn't just leave him in that state so took him home where with much patience my wife cut off his matted fleece, gave him a good wash and he's been one of the family ever since.
Just wanted to say despite the many street dogs you see wandering about it's heartwarming to see how the local residents who can't give them a permanent home for one reason or another are still prepared to look after them by putting out food and water and even a blanket when the nights are chilly.
Here's some before and after shots of wee Pepe who's given us so much fun and affection ever since that day three years ago.
