    Well, he's been part of the family for 6 months now and don't we know it ! He is an absolute delight, so friendly and affectionate , constantly wagging tail and has to be involved with everything just in case it might be food related. Remind you of anyone ?
    One or two issues we're working through - scent marking is improving in the house , using belly bands helps as a reminder and keeps stress levels down for both of us. It does seem worse when he's anxious.
    Lead walking is another , he's powerful for his size and jerks and pulls on the lead when he sees other dogs and people, it takes a good few minutes for him to calm down again. We are looking at getting a 1-2-1 trainer to help with that as walking him on my own is not pleasurable. He's better with OH to be honest.
    Here's a picture, I think you'll agree he's made himself at home ! IMG_20191107_171433_resized_20191108_092118579.jpg

    Does it feel like 6 months to you? Or do you have that weird 'feel like ages and no time at all' at the same time thing? So glad he's settled in so well :D

    Is it really 6 months. He is so pretty - or is it handsome.

    In many ways it feels like he's been here forever, he fits in so well, then something happens to make me think , well, it's still early days.

    Bobby, you're such a smashing little boy.

    If your mum and dad and that big sister of yours don't want you, you can come and live with us!

    That's a dog that has his paws under the table and knows it.

    Gorgeous boy. :D

    He's 7 yrs old so hopefully won't grow any more, but he is rather gorgeous .

    Yes, it really has.
    It would have been Tango's 16th Birthday on Bonfire Night, although Bobby could never replace her he's certainly a real asset to the family and has helped to heal the Tango shaped void.

    *Hugs* I'm kind of dreading Missy's bday coming up in December.

    I understand totally though,. They have a way of worming their way into our hearts & creating a new special place of their own in a heart full of love for dogs past & present xx
