Penny and Pip

I met these two lovely dogs whilst out in North Meadow at Cricklade today with some friends. I am posting their story here because like so many things in life they are uniquely special.

Their owner told us that both are rescue dogs - Pip, the white lurcher was found wandering on the Ridgeway where he had been dumped. He is almost blind, probably from a blow to the head, but can just see enough to follow Penny the greyhound around - so Penny (who didn't much like running) acts as a guidedog. Pip was named after Great Expectations and Penny after Penny Black.
