What You Saying, Dog?

Photographs by Mark Lyndersay.

Picture courtesy Mark LyndersayMy name is Shane Sheppard and my dog Bailey goes everywhere with me.

I come from Maraval. We’re a big extended family, plenty cousins. But, at home, it’s just four of us. My sister, Savannah – Bailey started off as her dog but she’s now the family pet. And my dad, Scott, and my mum, Rachel.

I went to St Andrews and then I did form one at CIC [College of the Immaculate Conception]. I transferred to Fatima because, most of the time, the teachers wouldn’t come. At parents-teachers meetings, about four of the 12 subject teachers would come. Fatima boys were getting real homework all then. So I switched. But I still didn’t like school. Not at all.

I played U-16 football for Queen’s Park Cricket Club but not for Fatima. It was good but I didn’t really enjoy it.
