Remember this lovely little girl .... well I thought a little update was in order.
She's settled in wonderfully, she's just had her final vaccination and is now micro-chipped with our details so she is well and truly one of the family. She has also gained nearly half a kilo in weight, not much but it's going in the right direction and is a healthy gain for just four weeks, the vet reckons she should slowly gain at least another kilo to be at a weight which will suit her frame and be nice and healthy.
She joins in with any game going and loves doggie toys, we don't think she ever had anything squeaky or fun to play with before judging from her reaction to them at first, and is just starting to learn some basic commands, sit, down, stay etc. She's a very clever little dog.
She loves spending time outside with us when we are working ...
... but as she is still not to be completely trusted when left on her own not to make a dash for the fence at the top of the hill she is kept on a long staked lead.
Which luckily she doesn't mind at all, in fact I've noticed that she sees it as a comfort and waits before any outside door is open for a lead to be put on her.
Such a change from this sad little waif pictured here a couple of days after we got her.
Sometimes a little bit of love is all you need ....
... and a furry friend to cuddle into.
