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.

Lovely photos - how great for Zippy to spend time with you in a pub, away from the clamour of the kennels. He looks so calm and settled - just so wish that his forever home would come along - his human who would give Zippy all the time and space he needs to settle once he is away from kennel care, who would love and support him whilst he is settling. He is a dear, dear little dog. angel13.gif] :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif:

Zippy and I went for a walk yesterday and he was his usual affectionate self. As usual, however, he did not want to walk far and so we spent most of our time in the hut having cuddles and treats. He is a really dear little soul who likes to sit on your lap. I don't think Zippy likes the mud and there is a lot of it at the moment. Zippy is waiting patiently for the right person to support and love him in a comfortable home environment. :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif:

What a great day for a walk with Zippy.
Today Zippy was in an upbeat mood so we embarked on a fun walk. He climbed onto the new brick pallets and enjoyed jumping from one pallet to the other, then jumped into my arms for a licky fuss and a lift down.
We had a steady jog up the drive and sat and the end of drive to watch the world wizz past.
Zippy enjoyed the time to sit and have a fuss made of him.
On our way back Zippy kept going for shady areas and I wondered if it was the temperature of the tarmac, so I took a shoe of to test it for myself and it was very hot. On the way back we kept to the grass and Zippy was a lot happier.
We sat and relaxed in the truck were Zippy hunted out the treats hidden for him.
Thanks for a fun walk Zippy.

:nicethread.gif: 0093.gif Thank you Jim for those brilliant photos of Zippy.
Zippy came home to spend the day with me today and had a really relaxing time. He slept alot - away from the noise and clamour of the kennel block he can obviously relax. We have had several walks and the good news is that Zippy has not reacted at all to any dog we saw or met. We came across a friend of mine who was walking her chocolate lab and Zippy just sat at my feet whilst we chatted. There was none of the redirecting at my legs which is what would have happened without a doubt near the kennels. He really is an ideal little house guest - lets you know if he needs to go out, can be left on his own in a room while I got on with stuff, eats everything you put in front of him, plays happily with toys on his own, and is so very, very affectionate. He is a lovely little dog and needs a home asap as he has waited far too long and kennel life is beginning to take its toll. :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif:
