That's right Lenora. My boys are Alfie and Bandit and we have a special bond and some people think I'm crazy talking to them the way I do. I tell them that my boys do understand what I am saying.
Alfie the Lowchen went missing one morning. My husband and I looked everywhere outside the back of the house calling his name, even out the front (eventhough Alfie couldn't have been there because of high fences)…... I burst into tears hugging my husband who was also crying (we honestly thought somehow someone had climbed over the fences and stole our darling.
We went inside and for some reason I opened the door to my daughter's old bedroom and there to greet me was Alfie. I shouted to my husband to come quick I'd found Alfie. Alfie snuck into the room whereas I thought my husband and put him to bed and he thought I had.
To this day we don't know whether he was barking or not because we heard nothing but silence.......
Now we have Bandit the Basenji who means just as much to us.
They are our darling boys.......
