    Hi all, long time no speak!

    Some of you might remember Otto and me but I thought I'd better reintroduce us (and introduce my new boy) to all the new names I see.

    So this is my Vizsla Otto who will be one at the end of this month:

    and my new addition is Alfie the lurcher who I adopted from a rescue a couple of months ago when he was still very underwieght and had little fur after a bad case of mange. He is guessed to be about 18 months old.

    This is him when I got him:

    and this is him now:

    and one of the boys together:

    Thank you everyone, I had forgotton how friendly this place could be!:)

    Alfie has been great for Otto because he's happy to run around like a maniac but will then come in and settle straight down which Otto is FINALLY doing!

    Otto has been doing lots of scent training and can now find and point to two drops of gun oil hidden anywhere in the house or garden. I've trained him to scent both for my college course and because it's a great way to keep his mind exercised which means Alfie isn't being nagged to play every two minutes!

    Hi, Otto is amazing! My son has an 18month viszla and we often go for walks together with the dogs.
    Cant believe the transformation of Alfie, what a stunning boy he has become with your tlc
