Rachel and I popped over to Godstone this morning to photograph the new arrivals, Zoe was walking past the paddock and said she had Bertie but he was very nervous.
Rachel popped out to say hello and when I looked over Bertie was literally in the bushes trying to hide he was that scared!
We eventually took Bertie into the paddock where he sat on Rachel's lap looking very unsure of what was going on, to be honest it wouldn't have been any good trying to take photos of Bertie his demeanor was very anxious. although he did perk up slightly when another dog walked past, after a quick conversation with Lynne we decided to bring Bertie home with us for the night.
He travelled well sitting on Rachel's lap, I jumped out the car and nipped in doors to harness up our four, all four were quite vocal when they first saw Bertie , he just looked away.
After a half hour walk we all went indoors, we put Bertie in the back room and put in the stair gate. That way we could see Bertie and vice versa and our four could safely say hello without too much trouble. After an hour Rachel mentioned that that when I walked back in the room his tail wagged, progresss!!.
Below is a short video of Bertie less than 2 hours after arriving. He certainly perked up just within a few hours of being here. I took out two boys out for a walk and he freely mixed with the two girls. The boys are ok with him (Ralphie desperately want to play) but were conscious of the fact he was only neutered a few days ago and we didn't want to risk his stitches coming out.Click here to learn how to add YouTube Videos to your phpBB forum
Whilst out with the boys, our daughter took a couple of photos of Bertie and our Poppy with Rachel, he wasn't too sure of the flash going off so decided to stop but he's a lot more comfortable around us now than earlier in the day. Bertie has just finished off a bowl of chicken & rice and is currently lying at my feet whilst I type this. Hopefully tomorrow I get more photos and a nice video too.
