Joey

 

Update from Joey's forever home ...

We just thought we'd write and give you an update on Joey. He’s doing really well and has filled out now as you'll see from the photos I’ve attached. He is also, as Ruth puts it, becoming a little teenager –he’s started not getting up and saying goodbye to me in the morning when I leave for work, and sulking when he can’t have something, but apart from that he’s great. He’s very affectionate and has taken to falling asleep sprawled across us both on the sofa in the evening after he’s been out for a walk.
We took him to Cornwall on holiday and he loved the beach so much that we couldn’t go past a beach without him getting all excited and wanting to run around like a lunatic. Playing ball is his favourite game now and he watches over his ball like a hawk. He was very intrigued by the sea and wasn’t sure what to do so would just run at it, bark at the waves, then run away. He didn’t really like swimming it the sea but would have a paddle.

We are still going to obedience class (well it’s more like training really) and he’s passed his Bronze and Silver Good Citizen Award. We are going to try and get his Gold Good Citizen Award but I'll think we'll have to do a lot of extra training for this one. We have also started taking him to Dog Agility which is at the same place as the obedience classes. He loves going to Agility he gets so excited when he we turn into the road that leads up to the field. Joey’s a completely different dog when we get onto the course you’d be so surprised. Angela who runs the classes is amazed his progress. We’ve only trained on four of the obstacles so far and he’s picked them up with ease. I wish the same could be said for me, I seem to be allows going in the wrong direction and confusing Joey. We’ve got some videos of us doing agility I’ll have to try and compress them and send you some.

  
   
 
   
 
     

Toby

Update of Toby in his forever home...

After months of walking him, we finally brought our Puppy (Toby) home. He arrived with us on Christmas Eve and like any youngster didn't sleep a wink all night! He had his first Christmas dinner and was very overwhelmed with so many new things all at once. He has since settled in extremely well! He loves his food, he loves his snuggles, he loves to chase the squirrels and still loves to do his trademark bouncing! We have been to puppy obedience school and he is adapting well to his aversion to other dogs, we had our first outing off the lead with another puppy and he spent every opportunity to wrestle, race and play with his new friend Milo. He is very cheeky, and has really shown us his true colours, he constantly keeps us on our toes. We are yet to tire him out, he just keeps going and going. We have been through 3 leads, 2 beds and a whole lot of shoes but we wouldn't change him for the world! He's our little puppy and he makes our world complete! I can't recommend more giving one of these beautiful dogs a loving home, they deserve it more than anything.

 

     
   
     

Paws

 
 Update from Paws forever home ...

Just wanted to give you a quick update on paws.... He is now a year old, and it's safe to say he is definitely the 4th spoilt child in the house.

He is currently lay on the decking in the back garden soaking up the sun. He loves going for long walks down reddish vale - which is where he discovered he is petrified of ducks.  Hehe.  He is an amazing doggy, and much loved :-).

Pippa (formerly Honey)

 

Update from Pippa's new owners ...

 

Thought I'd send you a photo of Pip for your website of her mammoth walk/run/swim in Cuerden Valley Park today. This photo was taken just before the muddy puddle paddling she indulged in … she's never keen on the resulting bath tho!

She's still such a happy bundle of joy and we want to thank you for giving us the chance to have her - its only been 5 weeks but she's firmly established as a member of our family.

     

Max

 
 
Update from Max's new owner ...

 

Good morning, I thought you might like to see Max bonding with his new mate.

He has started to follow her around and they are getting on brilliantly. I can't remember what it was like before he moved in now. It's going great.
