Bicki was dumped outside our gate in summer 2006, he was no more than 3 months old. We were becoming known, “those stupid English people, they have loads of dogs, we don’t want him, let’s leave him there!” We had to take him in, poor little boy. He was a Pastore Maremanno, an Italian sheepdog. He had such a lovely character. Rusty and Charlie took him on as a protégé. He grew to be the most beautiful dog ever. A real stunner.
Mino’s daughter came to visit us and fell in love with Bicki. In 2008 he was adopted by her. She lives in the north of Italy, and she made a special visit and came down and picked him up. So we had regular updates about him. She adored Bicki, sadly he passed in 2018, but he had a wonderful life 😍
