What a difference a day makes ! Lovely sunny day today thumbs.gif

Lovely day out and about, Dixie admired by many, we have been stopped in the street/pub by at least 7 people/couples who wanted to say hi to Dixie, none of them could believe she was in rescue and all seriously smitten ! Dixie has been amazing, so gentle calm and easy, just a little exciteable initially on seeing other dogs but she does refocus on her walk after a while and with some consistent input and more regular meetings with other dogs I'm sure her excitement would calm, certainly nothing that I don't find quite easy to manage. We and everyone who meets her adores this little sweetheart love4.gif

Dixie had some indoor playtime last night...

Dixie loves the sunshine, she found the sunny spot this morning...

We went to a dog friendly pub for dinner tonight and Dixie was a gem, sitting quietly in the corner on her blanket whilst we ate, her little paws on my leg but no more forward than that thumbs.gif

Admired by nearly every other table ! They really seem to know their Patterdales here and so many LOVE the breed, they're not wrong there! love4.gif

Then it was time to study the dessert menu wink.gif ...

Oops forgot to mention that I took Dixie down to the sea this morning thumbs.gif
It's a very pebbly beach and whilst her paws are recovered I didn't want her hobbling over so many pebbles so carried her down to the shoreline ! Dixie wasn't sure what to make of the sea and didn't get her paws wet ! The noise of the waves kept making her jump and the wind would make hers ears stand up !!!

A lovely walk along the front again tonight thumbs.gif

We have an enclosed patio where we're staying but Dixie prefers to 'go' on grass so we've been walking down the street to the first patch of grass and every time she has a wee when we get there !!! No accidents even without our own grass for her to go on, such a good girl :goodjob.gif:

Oopsie, we've had one little accident tonight, Dixie wasn't settled so I should have twigged and my fault for writing about it earlier this evening ! Still a very good girl, somewhere completely new to her and all good bar this one little puddle :D

Dixie met a very special family this morning thumbs.gif
Sarah and Digby travelled to meet Dixie and loved her before they'd even set eyes on her love4.gif

A beautiful day so Dixie made friends as we sat in the garden, lots of fuss and playtime followed by a walk and then back to do the paperwork. Dixie gave me her seal of approval as she lay in Sarah's arms and fell to sleep love4.gif

Dixie's travelling home in her new bed in the car, Sarah by her side on the back seat with Digby chauffeuring them woo.gif]
Tom and James, their grown up sons waiting to meet the new addition to their family when they get home :D

Lots of smiles for them all this afternoon and a lifetime of love and fun for Dixie, everything I could hope for and absolutely wished for, Thankyou for a fantastic end to Dixies holiday and the beginning of her happy ever after love4.gif

:thanks.gif: :thanks.gif: :thanks.gif: please do keep in touch, Dixie has so many fans who would love to keep up with her adventures, you have yourselves a very special little girl, I miss her but I couldn't be happier :thanks.gif: :thanks.gif: :thanks.gif:
