Kindness of Strangers...
If there is one thing that the wonders of Patreon has taught me it's to never underestimate the kindness of strangers. I was taking Mulder for a walk around the park today and he bumped into a little 13 year old poodle named Buzz and his friend the 13 year old sheepdog (Millie I think). Buzz was wearing a lovely little Winter coat and I mentioned to his owner that I was going to get one of those for Mulder when he was a bit bigger as I don't quite know which way he's growing right now (longer one day, taller the next - the fun of a mystery mongrel breed between a short and tall dogs). Her husband mentioned they had some of Buzz's old jumpers in the car and they were only going to a charity store otherwise so they gave them to Mulder!! Now he is the proud owner of two jumpers and a waterproof raincoat! They're still a little big but he'll really appreciate them with the winter months settling in. Such lovely people and I couldn't thank them enough. Such a kind gesture and I hope Buzz knows how much we appreciate his hand me downs. Plus I realised I hadn't shared a photo of the little man with you :)
