A Writer’s Companion

People often ask me about the dog I’m holding in the photo on my website. Let me tell you a little about her. Saffy is a golden cocker spaniel. She is 12 years old which is 84 in human years. I got Saffy as an 8 week old puppy from Ararat. She was very easy to train and can do lots of tricks like rolling over, sitting up like a bear, bowing and shaking hands. She even steps into a bucket of water if her feet are muddy before she comes into the house. When I’m working, she always sits under my desk. Saffy is a bit deaf now but apart from that, she’s very healthy. She loves eating, swimming, chasing balls and sleeping. When she sleeps she snores very loudly. Saffy is a wonderful companion.
