Mark & chicago by Ursula Roxy

Before approaching Mark he was sat sketching whilst Chicago peacefully slept by him resting his head on Marks knee. Mark had rescued Chicago from a caravan site where Chicago had been left on a chain and was badly bleeding having been left for dead. Mark has been on the streets for 2 years with Chicago ( now 12 ) and as so often is the case he told me how he always puts his dog first, despite snidely remarks from passers by it is as clear as day to see this.

“My name is Tamar, and I will be 3 years old in Feb 2017.  I am VERY handsome and I know it.  One of my grandads was Supreme Champion of Canada and my Daddy was Crufts Retriever Champion in 2016.  My Mummy was lovely and my master and mistress love me very much  - they have had 6 retrievers before me but I will be getting a young playmate (Retriever, of course) in March”.  I live in rural Wiltshire but I like Clapham Common because there are so many other dogs around, even if they are not as well-bred as I am".

Hey ,I'm Jake and this is my little 11 year old cocker spaniel called Ella, she's a little slower and sassier in her old age but still loves bobbing around clent hills, especially in her red Christmas jumper!

Gavin,Rolex & Spike - Waterloo by Ursula Roxy

As a child Gavin was locked away in a shed with 3 dogs until he ran away from home at 14. He kept dogs ever since and when he found Rolex locked and caged away he rescued him,a year later he rescued Spike from being drowned in a river. When his housing situation became uncertain and he was told after a breakup with a partner that he could move into a B&B without the dogs or take to the streets he chose Rolex and Spike and has been homeless for 9 months. Gavin is quiet,gentle and honest,his eyes shone and his dogs reflected this despite their huge size. We often complain about our past and blame it for some of our bad traits,to see and speak to Gavin who had no bitterness about him or hatred within and to see the love that poured from him for his companions ..I hope I did him justice when capturing this image.
