Patch chose us to live with in August 2006. Originally a stray from Ireland, he is the most wonderful companion you could have. I came to see him and straightaway he had his front paws on my lap for cuddles and fuss. He was unused to stairs and even the cuckoo clock made him jump! We have done fun agility, he used to come to work with me every day and now he loves his life in northern Scotland with our sheep, ponies and cat.
