Tinky is a very friendly, intelligent Daschund who was nearly euthenised as her previous owners moved to a place where no pets are allowed. She sleeps next to me in my bed. She gets very excited every morning when I get her ready for our daily walk. The hair on her back raises when other dogs bark at her. She pretends to be a "pointer" and an opera singer when she sees a cat. When I brought an injured grey dive home, Tinky checked on the patient every few minutes (sadly the dove didn't survive it's injuries).
