If you come to stay with us you'll have to check your bags before you leave ....
... look what Jason found in his.
She loved being next to him all curled up in his bag while we sat drinking coffee and chatting away. So don't be alarmed if you are frisked after a visit to us, we would hate the newest member of our family to depart accidentally with our guests :-)

For those of you who have been asking, and thank you for your interest in her, Mavis is continuing to settle in well. She gets on great with the other dogs and with Ginger the cat, has naughty bad manners when it comes to the chickens , note to Mavis ... they DO NOT like their tails being grabbed as they exit the henhouse ... and is generally making herself one of the family.
She is getting used to squeaky toys (they used to make her jump), loves hide chews of any description and her favourite hobby is finding someone who is sat down to cuddle into. If you sit forward in your chair for a moment, do not sit back suddenly for there will be a little doggie occupying the space the minute you move :-)
The only problem at the moment is that she cannot be trusted outside off the lead AT ALL, if she escapes from the house she makes for the hills, as Lovely Hubby has found to his cost on a couple of occasions, it's not good chasing a Jack Russell through a bramble patch!!
I think you can see it in her eyes and her stance that she is much more settled and she's thankfully lost that 'haunted' look. She's home for good.
