    Everything else just seems to be a stress right now and I totaly imagined the dogs getting stressed out and being extra hard work ontop of all we have. I mean, they are home most of the time but have a full day during the week alone (let out and looked after in between by next door) and at least 1 night and up to 2 full days being looked after somewhere else too. What kind of a normal dog can cope with being back and forth?

    But they are doing SO well :D I only have to mention Hamish my dads BT and Dixie goes loopy! Ready to jump in the car (she hates the car) but also just as eager to get in again to come home.

    Dave loves spending time with his brother and doesnt seem phased at all. Infact he would have rather went a walk with fraser and bully than come and 'get dad', we arrived home just as they were going out!

    Even better than that Dave has been so good off the lead I can take him out without one now (when its quiet) he wont even go off the pavement and just keeps circling back to me (again, if I hear a car - and you can hear them miles before they get there - he gets the lead slipped on).

    Dixie had a refersher in walking next to a buggy today my dads gf was babysitting and says she never walked infront or pulled once!

    Im so proud of my pooches I think I better go and get them a nice bone tomorrow :D

    Glad to hear your dogs are coping well :) Treats all round I say. I think they sometimes just sense what's going on and adjust accordingly. Can't imagine what it must be like. Chin up :D

    Might be a bit of a test on Dave soon... when we move I dont really want him going with Bully anymore so I can get his training back in gear (they are useless) so Hopefully he will be staying sometimes with xxsarahpopsxx and her dog Geordie when me and OH are at the hospital :)
