Mr Zak the Woodford
This is Mr Zak, the
well known Guinness drinking dog. A dear friend and great companion.
We have loads of fun, and I try not to leave him out of any trips
I make. A regular Star Party attendee, and also rather well known
at a few Pubs - nothing to do with me of course.
His favourite pastimes
include eating - sleeping - drinking - and chasing cats. Some
days he is more active than others.
He is quite a comfortable
dog, and seems to pick where he would rather sit. The stairs are
good for checking the content of the dining room table, with a
reasonable view of the kitchen as a bonus. His living room chair
allows a 'Zak Attack' at anything going past the window in 'His
Street'. When it comes to traveling, he takes great pleasure in
keeping an eye on what's going on outside the car.
Even a trip to the
seaside can be fun - providing you go somewhere dog friendly,
like the Isle of Islay, a good run around the beach, and through
the waves kept us both fit, and ready for a beer.
Rabbit is a particular
favourite before or after cooking. We have to be careful.
An accomplished scrounger
of Guinness from many a land lady.
He just loves a day
at the beach - shame we live so far away from dog friendly beaches
The Guard Dog :-) -What
do you think you're doing in my street!
Some days hunting just
doesn't go so well! - Maybe next time.
Shopping is always
fun, another fine opportunity to be cute, and scrounge the odd
It's looking promising,
I reckon I'm on a winner here, hadn't better get too close!
Success again - must
work on that cute pose a bit - it seems to work!
Reservoir Dogs!! -
Just try to get that stick pal!!
It sure is a Dogs
Unfortunately I have
to announce my dear friend and companion Zak passed away on January
the 15th 2002.
After being a little
poorly for a week or so, he took a rapid turn for the worse, and
following exploratory surgery it was found he had a inoperable
pancreatic tumor. I was forced to have him put to sleep, though
I did have chance to say good bye. He didn't leave here alone,
though I would have done anything to have had him for longer if
I could have. I had actually thought I lost him the night before
when he collapsed, the poor lad went down hill so quickly.
Peace my little friend - Mr Zak - 1992 - 2002
was nothing anyone could do for him, and he died in my arms that
lunchtime. He is still very deeply missed, and I am just grateful
for the years that I had with him. He didn't really suffer, which
is of some comfort, but I sure do miss him.
Thank you to all who
made his time with me so much fun, and all the help you gave us
both. You know who you are, I will always remember your kindness.
