only just look back on this little ones forum page to see if any updates,...lovely to see I walked Bosco daily and he was a superstar and a real sweetie, friendly with other dogs (especially mine when we met on a walk when another walker was walking him.) soooo pleased hope he is doing even better now- not that there was much improvement needed xxx :havefun.gif:

His favourite toy (kong tyre, as durable as kong but does split on the seam)
Well it's 6 months since gotcha day so I thought I'd post some update pictures of Bozzy for everyone and let you know how he's doing :)

He's such a character, mad as a box of frogs. He has loads of nicknames; Bozdog, Bozzymodo, Boswald Cobblepot, Bozzles, Bisto etc etc haha. He's had some health issues with his urinary tract and his colon, vets advice is to leave alone as the ops that would be done have a high risk rate of not working or causing incontinence and they don't think the risk is worth it when he is so young. So weekly emptying of his enlarged anal glands and lots of carpet cleaner! (We're just getting non carpet floors eventually as a long term solution). He's also allergic to cereals and wheat so he's on a special diet, it's given him the most beautiful shiny coat and he gets complimented on it by strangers often! Oh and the vet thinks he is a cross with some Patterdale in him funnily!

He's still a very social dog and he has play dates with George the labrador and Jake and Lula the staffies, and he wants to play with everyone on his walks.
He's both the most active dog ever and the most lazy dog ever! We call him a "puddle" of dog because once he's comfy and relaxed he just goes entirely floppy! He loves falling off the sofa it's hilarious, he'll push his head back further and further and you try and save him but he likes to do a roly poly off of it! 0002.gif] One time he's slid over the duvet from on the sofa to the floor and just cracked his eye open and went straight back to sleep!

He chases his tail but likes to do forward rolls with it in his mouth rather than actually running in circles hahaha.

There is a place close to us where you can pay for an enclosed field to walk the dog so they can go off lead with no fears, we are currently recall training him and are making progress. His recall is perfect if it is just him being walked but he still needs to get there when it comes to distractions, he'd always rather play with another dog than come back! He will pick it up though with practice he is such a clever dog.
He loves to please and he knows lots of commands now! Although he is so eager that now if you get a treat and say sit he will immediately sit, lay, roll over before you can even ask for paw!

He is a total joy.

We remember Bosco very well, and very fondly. Fabulous to see how well he has settled in and how clearly he is loved so much love4.gif He looks like he has been having fun with you both - thank you so much for offering him an amazing home, and looking after him so well, just what he deserved!
