Submission from aprilonline. Thank you for telling us about Spunky, he looks like an angel.
This is Spunky, a Blue Heeler/German Shepard mix. He is my white shadow, where I go… he goes, makes no matter if it is to the corner market or the distance from Knettishall Heath to Holme-next-the-Sea along Pedar’s Way. Spunky was selected and adopted from the pound in Alamogordo New Mexico and named by my then 10 year old son. They were on the road to becoming fast friends… and then somewhere, sometime, Spunky started hanging with me instead. Since then we have wandered the deserts of New Mexico, flown across the Atlantic and have traipsed around most of Norfolk and Suffolk together. He is my best bud. This year my last son finishes school and leaves home. I think Spunky the puppy knew I would need him more than the boy did. I am ever grateful for his enthusiasm for life, his patience with my disabilities and his undying love for me. His presence is making this year much easier to bear.
