Today 19th June 2020 is a special day for me I had to put my dog Patch down who would of been 17 today. This is why I released a special album called Paws For Thought I made last month kind of rushed as I needed it done by the start of this month. It was all about aspects of her life and the stuff she enjoys, my memories of her when she was still here.Patch was a collie mixed with some sort of whippet is the vets exact words when I asked what breed she is. I actually bought her for £20 off my neighbour who bought it off someone for a exchange of a ring he couldn’t keep her so after meeting her and seeing how good and warm she was I thought I had to take her. She was once living with a male dog so she was quite feisty that’s my neighbour’s dog before her first home I know off. She had a rough life in her first home apparently she lived in the kitchen doing her mess in there and not getting any attention but luckily she was saved from that by my neighbour. She had a big heart and would be always be pleased to see you though she was a shy dog and didn’t like people getting aggressive soft as shit but her personality and lovingness had me to be honest. Talking of personality she had a big one energetic, bouncy, happy always panting when smoothed, she licks you a lot which I don’t like but I know it’s just affection so I give her a light telling off before I smooth her I know confusing right lol, she’s a silent dog and never barked I know strange but that was a good thing it was the click clacking on the laminate floor that drove me bonkers. She was also very good with dogs always wanted to play with them until they snap and she would snap but that’s what I liked about her she never started it but I must admit she is a bit boistress with other dogs at times but that was being with a dominate male who was a little shit yeah hi and R.I.P. Max little devil. She was such a good dog that I don’t think I could find a dog like her that was so good and trained how she was road smart and was good off the lead but I did have some minor incidents and one that she had a head on collision which after I put the lead on her and didn’t walk her off the lead again on the roads for her own sake.The only thing I didn’t like was her bladder problem at the start of her time with me but after a bit of watching TV with Cesar Millan the show is about retraining disruptive and disobedient dogs for those who don’t know but after watching that and doing some training she got better and wasn’t weeing when getting excited so thanks Casar for showing me the way.

It’s official every 19th June is Patch Appreciation Day just something me and my friend will observe each year it passes. As I said this was the day I had to put her down due to old age she couldn’t walk right on her back legs as they weren’t strong enough so it was the best thing to do I think after many long hours of thinking it over which took some time. Thankfully she was on medication for the last two years of her life which helped at times but not all the time, footing wise anyway. I know she is in a better place now and I can sadly move on without her as I loved her but it was too much of a commitment for me but at the same time I loved it I could go anywhere cos I had the dog now it’s like what’s the point but saying that I can’t wait to get back out there once this COVID-19 is finished with.
You know the saying in for a penny in for a pound well I’m living that at the moment. I have 50 posters and 50 keyrings to give away with the album Paws For Thought. You can download the album for £7.00 and you will receive one A5 size poster and a keyring of my dog Patch in a nun suit and because I feel generous three brand new tracks on the album. You probably seen the poster a few times like in this post and several others lol. It’s this picture seen above it’s of Patch in the woods at night looking all creepy and eerie it’s my best and favorite shot of her and I thought it would be a good idea to get some posters made up and I wanted one myself. As you are now aware I even made a track about the photo, two in fact called Luna Woody Wolf which part 2 is on the album you purchase and by the way there is a free version with no extras on. I was going to sell the posters last Halloween but I thought I’d wait for a better time and I think now the hammer is hot. I will warn you it does look better in the photo than in the A5 poster but I think with direct sunlight or under good lighting it will be best suited. I decided any money I get from both sells from the paid version and any donations I will give to a charity called the PDSA a non government funded charity vet for people like me who can’t afford the expensive vet bills and get them at a discounted rate and sometimes free depending on the treatment. So if you do buy the album it will go to a good cause so please contribute whatever you can so we can make a small difference thank you.
You can find more about the package deal and purchase it at Bandcamp here’s the link and if you do thanks for contributing to the PDSA. 🙂
