Had a wonderful update come in a few days ago for Pi, the boy we re-homed
Hope you are all keeping well! Thought I'd give you a quick update a month on!
He is, I am certain, the most wonderful dog in the whole entire world! He's so clever, when I want to teach him something I show him maybe three times and
That's it - its locked in his brain. He is so calm and placid, he's the ultimate companion. My problem now is that I never want to go anywhere that I can't take him!
I went for dinner last weekend to a pub that allows dogs, he napped under the table on his blanket, no begging for food, perfect behaviour, and that's the first time we had done anything like that.
He's not wild about the beach, I think it's the open spaces and other dogs, so for now we walk along the cliff paths and woodlands, he's more comfortable with that.
We started out with him sleeping on the bed with me - I just couldn't resist the face and he's a brilliant snuggler. Over the last week or so I've slowly been moving him off the bed, and
the last two nights he's now happily in his own bed next to mine on the floor, all night, with no issue, except his snoring - he is a champion snorer!
I have also started leaving him alone in the house, we built up very slowly and are now up to 5 hours (with me going in to check on him and go out for a potty break after 3 hours) He's been absolutely great! Early on I almost lost a slipper, found it in his bed, suspiciously damp on one side, so I now make sure that if I'm leaving him the slippers are away. Other than that he plays with his duck and his chew toys. He's just, perfect, for lack of a better word!
He has picked up another kilo and is now 14Kgs, a very heavy boy, but healthy and loves a good run and a bit of game! As I type this he is asleep on my feet in the office... Bliss!
Hope you're all keeping warm!
Lots and Lots of Love from us both!"
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
