I took Jack out first thing this morning, there was no stopping him, we had a very brisk walk, we met Leeanne with Felix only a couple of barks, then he walked really well a short distance behind them. Not bothered at all about Felix, he carried on with his walk in his usual way, lots of sniffing and grass eating.
We had lovely cuddles back in his kennel along with a few treats. Jack is so confident walking now, it is wonderful to see. This dear little lad so deserves his forever home. :smiley-dance017.gif:

I took the lovely Jack home for the afternoon on Sunday. He was so excited when he saw my son, they adore each other. After lots of kisses and cuddles, he had his lunch then his usual afternoon nap. My daughter and I took Jack to Reigate Heath, he passed two fields with horses in, he took no notice of them, just kept walking as if they were not there. We passed a couple of dogs, a couple barks then on our way. Jack has improved so much in the last few weeks, he seems so much happier on his walks, he takes an interest in his surroundings. He makes himself at home now, lays on his blanket and of course has lots of cuddles. It is wonderful to see him so relaxed and happy. You would not be disappointed if you adapted Jack, life would be full of love and laughter with this gorgeous little boy

I had another lovely walk with Jack today. He had waited patiently (although barking a bit from his pen) for me to collect him from his pen and off we strode. Jack was in the mood for a quick walk although he also enjoyed a few sniffs along the way. Once back in his pen he snaffled quite a few pieces of sausages before settling down in his bed. He is a lovely boy - excellent company and very loving - his forever home must surely come along very soon. :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif:

Walked the gorgeous handsome Jack this morning, he was in the mood for a brisk walk through the woods. We passed,Ralf only a small bark then off we went. It still amazes me how well Jack is doing now with his walks. We stopped for a couple of treats and cuddles. More treats back in his kennel!!, please consider Jack for his forever home, he has so much love to give. angel13.gif]

We arrived home with Jack and Shadow, Saturday late afternoon after a good car journey home.
Jack made himself at home almost instantly taking a large drink of cold water on his entrance to the kitchen and meeting our youngest son, George, who he took an instant like too love4.gif
Shadow and Jack then explored the house and garden together, Shadow leading the way.
Both Shadow and Jack then enjoyed a bowl of biscuit each. Jack woofed his down within a minute or two, whilst Shadow is more of a sedate eater. Shadow rarely finishes his meals in one hit so Jack moved in and promptly emptied the remains of Shadows bowl. Shadow showed no signs of anger towards Jack for this and seemed happy to share with him.
Jack then proceeded to head straight for a 2ft long bone that Shadow had received for Christmas, but had barely touched (it is larger than Shadow and he'd always found it a bit of a challenge). Jack however had no problem an continued to make it his own.
Once Jack had settled in nicely we decided to give him a bath. He was very well behaved and didn't try to escape, unlike his brother, Shadow, who hates to have a bath and constantly tries to climb out !
Jack then continued to chew on the bone he had claimed for himself, whilst being carefully watched by Shadow, who was considering his options !
As the afternoon turned to early evening, and the temperature was still extremely high. both boys continued to get to know each other more and there were occasional moments of rapid playing, and jumping around on the sofa, with only the very occasional verbal intervention required. Both Jack and Shadow responded well to my our verbal commands, and reacted instantly, by stopping what they were doing when we felt that they were getting a little too boisterous with each other.
In between playing and chewing his bone, Jack would display periods of affection towards myself and Charlotte, and he would often jump up onto the sofa to sit with her.
Around 7pm they were both showing signs of tiredness and they both decided it was time to crash out, Jack on the sofa, and Shadow varying his position as he can't settle during this hot spell.
We decided to give them there dinner around 8.30pm as Shadow generally has been eating later in the evening over the past few weeks.
They were both given a bowl of the food supplied by Lynne, mixed in with some biscuit. As they were both new to each other we were a little wary of dinner time, so we gave each other their bowls at the same time but about 10ft apart. Again Jack proceeded to woof down his dinner, and Shadow, who generally is a slow eater, had obviously learn't form earlier experiences and also woofed his dinner down a lot faster than usual. Once again Shadow did not finish his full dinner and was happy to give the rest to Jack.
After their dinner we sat down for something to eat ourselves and both the boys continued to get along side-by-side quite happily, either sleeping, or playing as they had previously done.
As it was still extremely hot late into the evening, we left the patio doors open as we normally would for Shadow. Shadow likes to come and go, in and out of the garden as he pleases, with the occasionally urgent run down the garden, barking, when he thinks he has seen something. Invariably I think he imagines half of the things he barks at :-)
We were interested to see how Jack would respond to Shadow's behaviour and we can happily say that he was exceptional in his response. He would lift his head, ears pricked, but then continue to carry on with what he was previously doing. No barking at all. He would occasionally go to the patio doors and take a look at what Shadow was doing, then turn back round as if nothing had happened. On the odd occasion he would join Shadow in the garden for a rummage around. It was quite a pleasurable experience, seeing Jack react so positively. We were both very pleased with his responses and attitude within the home.
