Hugo has been a fabulous companion :D

He’s definitely been feeling more himself today , he’s a young boy with lots of energy. He’s been good as gold and like a little’un after some fairly lively exercise he’ll suddenly realise he’s tired and cuddle up for sleeps love4.gif

Hugo has had some good input in his young life, his foundations are strong, his automatic sit for dinner or treats is excellent as is his paw to say please please please thumbs.gif
His housetraining is 100% solid and bless he still does ‘girly’ wee’s !!! (Squats rather than cocking his leg !) - don’t tell him I’ve told you that, he likes to think he’s quite the boy !!!

He loves to play ball/rope toy with you and will drop it for you to throw again again and again and again and again (you get the picture !!!) demonstrating his training so far in his young life.

Walks are still too exciting for words and however much he tries to contain himself as I go to harness him it’s just a bit too much at the moment and this is him at his most lively - but with regular walks and consistency in approach to encourage him to be calmer I have no doubt he will develop that self control to stay stiller !!! He loves treats and he’s such a bright boy I have no doubt he’ll be a quick learner :D

Hugo is very responsive on his walks, listens well and will stop calmly when you do, a little over zealous on his lead but does improve and I think he does know to walk with a lose lead but with fewer walks and kennel life he might have just forgotten a bit !!! No problem passing dogs, didn’t say hi close up but that didn’t really worry him and he was happy to continue on. One dog we passed barked at him and Hugo just couldn’t understand why !!!

Hugo Is a very loving and loyal dog, he adores his humans and really does want to please. His kisses are slightly ott (definite need to keep your mouth well shut !!!) but hey, hes been in kennels and he’s just saying thanks I love you ... lots !!! 0002.gif]

Hugo has the choice of sleeping on my bed or in his doggie bed on the floor next to me, last night he chose the doggie bed for the first time, jumped up to say morning when I stirred and curled up betwee my legs, doesn’t he look content :D

This is Hugo’s sit at breakfast time, he really has to try hard to keep his bottom on the floor but has mastered it well !!!

He has no problem with me around his bowl, eats well, not too fast but you can tell enjoys every morsel and licks the bowl very clean indeed ! Enjoys some yoghurt as secondsies for his brekkie :D

This is one of my fave pics of this adorable boy ...

I think it sums him up in one picture, the long legs looking very youthful, love how they are straight out in front of him, too cute love4.gif
His beautiful eyes looking at me and those gorgeous big soft floppy ears love4.gif
He was sat like that watching me eat my breakfast - his training and self restraint showing through in bucketloads as he calmly sits and watches me !!!

We’ve played more today, with the rubber ball and 2 rope toys, he loves to play with you but equally will amuse himself well when he needs to...

Sadly it’s back to kennels day tomorrow, when they fit into home life so well and you know they struggle with kennel life like Hugo it’s all the more difficult - for Hugo aswell as me I’m sure.
We’re not thinking about tomorrow, just enjoying this evenings snuggles, cuddles and snoozes love4.gif

Bless this darling boy, I just thought I should get a few photos on my DSLR (big !) camera, it has a zoom lens that makes a very small noise as it zooms in and then away and clicks as it takes the photo, well bless him he was terrified, ran out the room. Came back and I held it out for him to sniff which he did and licked the lens but still not prepared to have it pointed at him, even the smaller lens worried him so it’s gone away now. He’s now snuggled next to me and I can feel his big heart beating love4.gif

Bless him, I think he must have had a sheltered life so far with too many things to worry about xxx

So I wonder to myself, can Hugo read ? Does he read what I write about him or does he read my thoughts ?
Just to prove to me that he can do a lovely relaxed walk we did this morning, it was as though he needed to show me :D

Hugo is a lovely boy, still a baby and it's heartbreaking to see him unhappy in kennels. I'm sure the break at Aunty Sarah's did him the world of good, and he will get his home soon...... :goodluck.gif:

Hugo walked with one of his favourite people today, Geoff. He shared his walk with Buster and Frankie dogs and was very relaxed around them. Buster immediately introduced himself to Hugo, and was very keen to make friends. Buster is very dog savvy and can read other dogs very well so this indicates that Hugo was giving very friendly signals and great vibes.

Geoff walked Hugo yesterday and was greeted as if he were the best thing since sausages! Hugo is so affectionate. He walked with Buster and Frankie and was so happy to have doggie companions to walk with. He kept stopping ( he and Geoff were in the lead) to turn around and say ‘hi’ again to Buster who was just behind him. We were very worried about dear Hugo being back in the kennels as he finds it all so distressing, but our week was absolutely made when Lynne told us he had been reserved, and we are keeping everything crossed that this is his very own forever family turning up. If it is we shall break out the champagne, because as much as ALL the dogs in Rescue need homes, some cope better than others in this environment and some don’t cope at all. Dear Hugo isn’t coping, and my heart just bleeds for him. He was very happy to be rubbed down at the end of his walk, it is just sooo muddy right now, and then settled with a nice dentastix. I love you Hugo xxxx

Hugo walked fabulously today with Keisha & Tilly and Rolo too :D
As ever he liked to be out in front !
Hugo wasn’t sure about paddling when we first got to the stream but with some gentle encouragement he plucked up the courage to get his feet wet :cool.gif:

So, whoever reserved dear Hugo, never actually came to meet him. Their loss. Hugo is the most affectionate, friendly boy. Geoff walked him today and said it does his ego so much good to be greeted by this boy. Hugo is settling a little better in kennels now, having had his tail docked he is no longer self harming and he has put a bit of weight on. He is a beautiful affectionate dog with a wonderful, quizzical air. He loves to walk with another dog and he and Cody had a lovely time today. Hugo then went to the paddock with Geoff for a play, he loves tennis balls and us very good at bringing them back. Hugo will lavish you with love, he’s a cuddle bunny. He’s young, and has so much to give, non of us want to see his youth wasted in Rescue. So come on forever family, here is your boy waiting for you. Ready and willing to love you, play with you, take you for walks , cuddle up to you. What are you waiting for?

Got my Hugo fix again on Friday love4.gif
Hugo led the way walking out with Monty (with Anne) and Harvey (with Daniella) - such a chilled boy around other dogs and a lovely walk, like last time though, Hugo wanted to be out front !!!

Hugo has been sharing walks with Buster and Frankie. All three boys are very chilled in each others company. Buster likes to walk next to Hugo, and Hugo seems to enjoy his company although he makes sure he keeps a nose ahead, as Hugo likes to be at the front. If Hugo stops to sniff and then realises the others are in front he rushes forwards to regain the lead.
