This was my best mate Mike.
His NZKC papers, had his official name as 'Manhatten Fleetwood Mac', however we just called him Mike.
He was a beautiful boy. Playful, inquisitive and fiercely loyal and protective of his family.
I was out walking with him one night and a couple of guys pulled up in a car and started hassling me. Mike wasn't going to have anything of that. He pushed between me and the car, jumped up and planted those big feet on the edge of the window, bared his teeth and stuck his nose right in the face of the bloke in the front seat. His growl clearly said 'Back off and leave my Mum alone, or you'll have to deal with me, mate!'
Sadly, we lost Mike in a house fire about 24 years ago.
R.I.P. old friend .. you will never be forgotten.
Now go to CAMERA CRITTERS and join in the fun.
