We are very privileged to walk several rescue dogs on our adventures.
These dogs spent some of their younger years on the streets in different countries and climates.
One in Africa, one in Cyprus, one in Budapest.
The lives here in Oslo could not be more different both weather wise and from living in amazing and loving families.
Whilst their early years might have been more difficult, they have not let it affect them. In fact quite the opposite.
I have noticed and I have spoken to their owners previously about a certain look that these rescue dogs have.
It is hard to describe but I will do my best.
They seem to walk around permanently loving life. Almost like a continuous state of awe.
Taking in their surroundings and freedom in nature, combined with the daily love and attention they receive, they just smile.
It is a look as if they have just won life’s lottery.
It is both inspiring and heartwarming to witness.
They have every right to be bitter or traumatized from a difficult upbringing, but instead they live in the moment and just seem so content.
As someone who grew up in a household with three different rescue dogs from the streets of London it is a look and sentiment I have experienced throughout my life.
So a big thank you to those owners and charities out there who strive to give these dogs are fantastic second life.
