Hello There

Just to update you on Dave

He has settled into our home, feels like he has been here everywhere...muddy foot prints all over...etc.

Dave with friend TamHe has been away with us to Wales to meet family and their pets..he was instantly great mates with my husband's mother's dog Tam...they had a great time on the beach and ended the day in front of the fire together...and he is so wonderful to our aunts lab puppy who is a 4 month old terror...

Janice found us a real gentle giant.....

He enjoys about 5 miles a day in two walks through the dales and a small jog to the shops and back... ...even in the rain and snow...although he does like his cosy dog coat...and refuses to leave the house if its raining, without it...

Dave with Charlotte
He is a strong lad so we use the halti, he is friendly to all who he meets. In fact he has become well known in the village on his evening walks as he has a little LED flashing light on his collar. This caused a real stir in the fields one night as a couple thought it was a UFO.... SPINNING TOWARDS funny... the talk in the post office the next morning!!

After 17 years in the village with only us and our ridgebacks we now have a couple with two puppies male and causing chaos, a guy with a rescued 9 year old and a couple moving in up the road who has one young female its great to meet them in the fields..

Our vet says Dave would make a wonderful PAT dog and we are just enrolling him to do his citizenship awards....

We are still discussing perhaps offering to have another one...because we all fall out over who is walking him and generally end up all going....and we are all used to having two plodding about....

We think its a bit early yet so we will wait....Dave loves other dogs so we may consider getting a puppy later in the year..unless a younger one comes up for re-homing....we plan to come to the July funday as its so close to us.

Thanks again
