I took Lola for a walk today. She's a sweet, tiny girl who gave me a lovely cuddle when I went into her kennel. She walked beautifully for most of the walk. She saw a cat in the woods.....Lola Is definitely not for cats :icon_barking_dog-116.gif: 0028.gif
Lola was an easy dog to walk, but on the way back, when we were almost back at the kennels, she did lead rag quite a bit and it took me a while to get her to walk on properly. I did this by distracting her with treats as its always harder when a dog can't hear you. I think she ragged as maybe she was getting stressed at the thought of going back, as she was lovely up to this point. She wasn't happy when I put her back and just wanted to stay with me, so I'm sure it was that [cry.gif]

I enjoyed a walk with Lola this morning. We ambled around the woods together enjoying the sunshine. Lola snuffles along making little piggy snuffle noises all the way. So cute! We stopped to enjoy cuddles and she certainly enjoyed having her back scratched. She did start ragging the lead as we finished cuddles and returned to our walk. I think she does this when she is unsure of what to expect next and what you expect of her. She soon stopped when I ignored this behaviour and just kept walking on. Also a simple hand signal is all she needs to remind her not to jump up and she responds immediately. Such a sweet little staffie girl and her spotty back and ears are very cute.

I met Lola for the first time this afternoon, she is such an affectionate dinky little girl. We had a lovely walk, Lola really seemed to enjoy herself and was very interested in any movement in hedgerows etc. She makes gorgeous little Staffie noises. I didn't experience any problems with her grabbing the leads, hopefully this was just because she felt insecure. I think Lola will be receptive to learning sign language as when we got back to the kennels one of the staff demonstrated to me how to teach Lola to sit which she did several times and that was without even giving her treats after each time she obeyed. Lola has a wonderful nature and will make someone a loyal loving companion. love4.gif

Darling little Lola, she really is very small, not much bigger than a JRT. Very puppy-like too. It was very hot today, so I just took her around the grounds and into one of the enclosures for a dip in the paddling pool. She wasn't sure at first, and I had to plonk her in. Then she thought it was truly amazing!!
She did get hold of the lead and ragged it a lot (I had foolishly left it laying on the ground), so new owners will need to work on gentle persuasion when she has something that's not meant to be a play thing. Sorry, video not showing in HD, I will try again

I was soooo impressed with little Lola today .We were both enjoying a lovely walk in the sunshine when I heard dogs barking close by .Before I had time to react 3 x off lead dogs bounded out of the bushes , heading straight for Lola.

As she's deaf she didn't hear the loud commotion coming her way and realised once they were upon her. Two large Labradors and a large labradoodle barking , lunging, jumping at the tiny staff .

Lola was beautifully behaved she stood and watched the dogs , happily greeted them as she thought they'd come over to play. The labradoodle was quite insistent that he stayed with Lola , despite his owner calling him continuously.

Lola showed impeccable manners throughout and happily trotted off when the dogs were finally contained. She showed no nerves, no reaction other than a waggy tail, Well Done little lady .
