Had some bad (actually very, very good) news last week, that Scout had been successfully matched, and would be moving to his new home on Monday. So we made the best of the weekend, went for a play in the river, and it looked so much fun I went in too




That tired us out a bit, so Scout and I briefly rested our eyes (for an hour or so apparently)




Then yesterday arrived, Scout packed his bags, and got ready to go to work





I was doing OK till I had a clean up and stepped on 'honky pig', which gave out a noise that had been heard about 1,000 times per day up to then. [Edit - just to say, we didn't deprive him of his favourite toy, we packed a new one for him in his bag, as the original is getting a bit too close to becoming a three legged piggy.]

Still, he's been matched locally, so we've passed on our contact details and offered to board him if needed.

Good boy Scout, good boy.

I take my hat off to you Mart, that's an amazing thing that you've done.  An emotional nightmare for those of us reading about it never mind you who actually did it.

Have an applaud, in fact better still, have a standing ovation!!!!!

Just when you need a cuddle, the shopkeeper magically appears!

Got a call last night from a local guide dog owner asking if we could look after her dog for a couple of days whilst she's away with family. Apparently the dog is a 'right cuddler'.

So next Thurs/Friday sorted!


Sadly. Actually that's not true, it's not at all sad, but the gorgeous tom cat that befriended me at the cat shelter, and which I planned to nab once Scout left, was given a loving home the week before. And in all fairness to the adopter, they saw him first, but had been waiting on a home check. Lots of posted piccies and he looks like he's landed on his feet (as a cat should). Oh well, there is another ex-feral and slight bruiser who is now working hard on my emotions ...... must resist ...... but resistance is futile!

Finally got a dog. Though I have to say I was a little concerned about how it looks, but the lady at the Canine And Terrier Rescue Centre was very convincing, and said he was a rare Eurasian breed and will look more dog like when he grows up. I hope I haven't made another mistake like the time I bought a long nosed, long tailed, short legged African Terrier from the bloke down the pub wearing a zookeepers jacket.






OK, I admit it, he's the bruiser I mentioned in my last post. We're giving him a trial with the other boys, and if that goes well, we'll foster him and hopefully keep him. Photos are after only 30 mins of arriving, and he came to me for a fuss and a flip, so he's no fool.

But I haven't given up on a forever dog.

Yep he pulled a fast one on you there Mart, you've obviously been appointed as his "junior diddler" and you might be promoted soon to "lap in waiting".
has he let you feed him yet??

Well done Mart, one of the best breeds of Dog you're ever likely to get. 

We have four of the same breed at home and you can be sure that with a lot of patience and some careful training they soon have you doing everything they need.

I hope he makes the grade and fits in, looks like he's at home already Smiley

Thanks, and of course he's staying, was there ever any doubt!

His name is Harley, prompting my brother-in-law to suggest I'm having a mid life crisis as that's what I'm supposed to go and get at my age.

This morning he's decided to help with my trawling of RE news:



Friends dog staying for a few days in a week, lovely 7 month Lab, so hopefully all cats will have reached a mutual disregard for each by then.

Then we really must get on with finding our forever dog.

Harley looks as smug as he deserves to be for catching himself a good carer.  Keep us all posted on progres.

As for the mid life Harley thing, buy a Triumph instead. Better made, better value for money and best of all its British  Smiley

I brought Diesel home in a Renault Trafic,
                                       He was not very happy at the start. Old Natily was very good to him and raised him like her own. He used to grab her by the neck and drag her across the floor. She had infinite patience with him and then when he was about 8 months old or so, He changed into being ultra respectful towards her. We never ever seen her do anything wrong on him,,bare her teeth or snap him but something certainly happened and what ever it was,,did the trick and he grew up to be one of the most gentle and considerate dogs that we ever had.
 We think that we can plan the future but it always turns out that we have to be happy with what we get and what we get if often not quite what we planned for. Not worse,,not better  not quite.
