Italian Dogs

Tinker crossed the Rainbow Bridge, bye bye Puglia Pooch

This is Tinker, a sweeter more lovable puppy you could not find. For me it was love at first sight, he was delightful. We found him by the rubbish bins scavenging. I have never in my life before seen so many ticks on one dogs. The inside of his ears were smothered in them, it was…
