HAPPY DOGGY NEWS is remembering with love the gorgeous boy MARLEY.
This is a beautiful story of how a little unloved doggy was found, adopted, and then given the best life he could have ever wished for!
MARLEY became the luckiest boy when he arrived home with his forever family Tia and her Mum. It would take him a while to adjust to being loved and understanding the concept of kindness but when finally allowing trust to be part of his life, he learned to love and adore Tia as much as she adored him!
MARLEY and Tia were inseparable and this was partly to do with MARLEY’s previous life, he now wanted to bond and not let Tia go away from him ever!
Enjoying his wonderful life to the full, MARLEY loved nothing better than to play with his ball. He would take it with him everywhere as you can see in the lovely photo below….
Marley’s anxiety formed from his early days before Tia and her family adopted him made some things a little more tricky for him. He was afraid of other dogs and a lot of people. He would often need to be carried out for his walk initially. However, he would find a stick he wanted and all of his nervousness would be forgotten about. He would from that moment on become relaxed, jolly and so happy he could start walking for himself.
Tia told us that MARLEY really thought he was a person or a sheep, but not a dog!!!! This is so funny!
Even being a little too large for Tia’s lap, he would curl up and let himself have sweet doggy dreams relaxed in her arms until Tia decided to move!
Everyone who spent time getting to know MARLEY and understanding that he needed to get to know them slowly fell in love with him! We too have fallen in love with you sweet boy!
When Tia was little he was her guardian angel and helped her with her bad days at school. After school, he would be at the door waiting to greet and adore her until she felt strong again.
Lockdown proved to be excellent for MARLEY as his Tia was studying from home – his dream come true! He would watch every online lesson with Tia. We are loving the thought of this and picturing this in our minds, this has made us smile and has warmed our hearts.
THIS WAS MARLEYS ABSOLUTELY FAVOURITE MOVIE. WHEN THE LION KING WAS ON, HE WOULD BECOME VERY EXCITED, JUMP UP FROM HIS BED AND START PESTERING TIA UNTIL SHE WOULD STAND UP AND DANCE WITH HIM!
FOR YOU MARLEY!
MARLEY grew older as we all do, he had diabetes from the age of 11 and this led to his blindness soon after. Having so much love surrounding him, his quality of life was still good each and every day until he passed for his new adventures over the Rainbow Bridge.
Tia carries MARLEY close to her heart every day. She has a beautiful necklace with his ashes. On one side it says ‘FOREVER IN MY HEART’ and on the other side ‘ALWAYS ON MY MIND’.
MARLEY was my best friend from the age of 3, we did everything together. He was so loved and everyone misses him to this day! – TIA
MARLEY we are so happy to have gotten to know you through Tia. You will be teaching all the other doggies over the Rainbow Bridge about how some of us humans have beautiful souls just like your own.
Tia, we thank you so very much for allowing and trusting us to write about your special boy. We send you love and thank you also for being such a loving human Mum to one of the furry Angels sent to this Earth.
