A Christmas Message from Rider

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 7 December 2012 | 7 Comments


Well Christmas has come around again... And I wish you all, my dear friends (far too many to name) who have cared and still care about me, a joyous and safe Christmas & New Year!


I did come for a Refuge visit about a month ago and it was so exciting to see everyone – I felt so important – thank you!!!

It has been about 3months since I have been in my new permanent home and I am loving my comforts with Penny and John – and lots and lots of cuddles!

We go for two walks a day – the morning walk is just over 3km – it’s great and I feel really energised – I often get to see my 2-legged and 4-legged refuge friends on these walks who live close by.

With my 2 daily meals I always have wheatgerm. There are extras of course like grated carrots, sliced beetroot, bannanas, blueberries, watermelon, pasta and apples. These are all suppose to help my immune system and they must be working because I’ve never felt better!

My life is pretty cool and I’m loving every minute of it.


Hope you like my Christmas pics.

You ever loving Rider xx

  • Oh Rider, you look gorgeous. Wishing you Penny and John a very merry Christmas and well wishes for the new year. You all thoroughly deserve it.

  • I had great difficulty not bursting into tears when I read this. Rider was by far my favourite dog while he was at the Refuge. I loved him so much and had him for several sleepovers. He is one very lucky dog (& deservedly so) to be living with Penny & John. Thank you so much for the update as I constantly think of him and ask after him through Marlene at the office. Merry Christmas Rider, Penny & John
