dudley"Beloved Sir Dudley"

We rescued our beloved Dudley when he was 7 years old.

He was an anxious Blue Roan Cocker Spaniel who had terrible separation anxiety. If he were ever left alone at home he would cry literally like a baby. None of this worried us, as we knew he was the perfect match for my daughter and I, who understood his fear of abandonment.

But, bringing him back from San Francisco to Melbourne, Australia seemed terrifying given we had to leave 6.5 months before he could come due to...
