Today was sunny and Zippy adores a sunny day, I was welcomed by a calm and attentive manner and afforded a hug and a nuzzle.
With Zippy in a great mood off we went. First stop the truck for some treat hunting then a waggy trot down the drive.
In the wood there were squirrels, so we stopped for a while and watched them play.
A long walk was had so a trip to the poets hut was in order,this gave Zippy a chance for a hug and a dog nap.
Thanks for a relaxed walk Zippy.

Zippy enjoyed his little walk today and enjoyed time in the hut even more. He is a lovely character and needs to be given the chance to show how much love he can give. He really does need and deserve a home and has been more than patient. He was fine with traffic today and showed little reaction when he saw other dogs. Fingers crossed, indeed everything crossed, that Zippy won't have to wait much longer. :crossfingers.gif:

Zippy and I had our usual short walk knee high in mud though the sun did come out later. He did his usual thing and took me to the hut for treats and cuddles. He is such an endearing little fella - after the treats he came on my lap for cuddles and went to sleep there for about ten minutes. When we got back to his pen I found him some different toys and left him happily chewing on those. Zippy really does need a home and he really would enrich the right person's life. I am hoping that person comes along soon. :crossfingers.gif:

I picked Zippy up yesterday at 8 o'clock and took him home for the day. He settles really well in the car and is very happy to find himself back home with me. Our first walk was to the local pet shop to buy Zippy a few more new toys - he is such a young dog and likes to play. En route and back he was much admired by various people and showed what a friendly little dog he is. He spent much of the day sleeping, sometimes in his basket but usually lying on me. It was a bit of a wrench to take him back to the kennels - Zippy so needs his own home and each time I bring him home for the day I realise more and more what a biddable, affectionate little soul he is and how easily he would fit into most homes - providing there were no cats to chase and no dogs - maybe, in the future, when Zippy is more confident in a home then the issue of dogs could be addressed. :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif:

I am always so disappointed that the weeks go by and Zippy still finds himself in kennel care. He is such a dear little dog - biddable and wanting to please, good company, excellent on walks when I take him home for the occasional day although not so good at the kennels when all he wants is to spend time in the hut. He knows he will get treats and cuddles in there and he is slightly away from the barking and clamour of the kennel block and so manages to relax a bit. He sits on my knee and sometimes goes to sleep. Once settled in a dog free, cat free home Zippy would make a great companion and just so needs that to happen. :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif:

Ahh my mate Zippy - it is always such a treat to spend time in his company. Once again he refused to walk very far and so once again we ended up in his favourite place - the hut - where he climbed onto my lap for cuddles and treats. He is always so pleased to see me and is so very endearing. It would be the best thing ever if Zippy were to find the right home - with someone who will be patient and support him while he settles into home life :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif:

Today Zippy and I went for a walk and good fun was had.
Sometimes Zippy doesn't want a big walk and that's ok but today was different so we embraced that mood and set off.
He soon gathered pace and he decided the length and path of walk.
Zippy is a gentle walker and likes to sniff so he can understand his location.
After a while Zippy started to head home but on the way took time to drink from puddles and chew on a bit of grass.
When we got back he decided to stop at the truck for hugs and treats and was more than happy to chill and watch the world go by ,whilst having a fuss made of him.
Cheers for a relaxing time Zippy.
