Geoff and I were very happy to walk Graham with his kennel mate Trixie again today. This boy is simply gorgeous. He’s the size of a largish Lab, with such a handsome head and such a laid back, gentle nature. Stands patiently for you to put his harness on, sits nicely for treats, takes them very gently and doesn’t pull on the lead. He’s a gentle boy and will be a super addition to any family. Whoever gets him will be very lucky.

Graham made me laugh so much today my tummy hurt. He was being videoed for an xmas video - let me tell you he won't be winning an oscar anytime soon. Graham decided he rather liked the xmas props - especially the lovely, little xmas tree. He moved it several times, had a little nibble of it, tried to chew it. Kim moved it away, hid it from him, but he wasn't giving up......he LOVED that little Xmas tree. Suffice to say the video wasn't done in one take......but I haven't laughed so much in months 0002.gif] After his brush with fame, kim and myself took him and Trixie for a walk then to the paddock for off lead time. Graham was perfectly behaved and enjoyed running around chasing a ball with Trixie. Big thanks to Graham for the best laugh I've had in ages. Xx

:nicethread.gif: 0093.gif What fun Corrina and I had with Graham and Trixie today. That Christmas tree! 0002.gif] Bless his heart, he had a wonderful time and I cannot wait to see the video. I have not walked Graham before. He is a super boy and apart from taking a fancy to the Christmas tree which he wanted to chew, he was so well behaved. Walks like a dream although he is a bigger boy. Great fun to take in the paddock. Love him love4.gif xx

Graham is such a fun boy - he never fails to make me laugh. Today, when kim and I took him and Trixie to the paddock, he emptied every single tennis ball out of the box......all of them. He was very gentle with each one, just removing them and placing them at his feet, bless him. He adores his kennel mate Trixie, never a cross word between them. He is a big lump of loveliness - very sweet natured with just the right amount of cheekiness. X

SO lovely walking this gorgeous boy today with his bestie Trixie in the Boxing Day sunshine. He is such a lovely chap, gentle, no pulling on the lead, beautiful sits for treats. Graham’s oonly slight fault as far as I can see, if you consider it a fault, is that he doesn't like to share with humans if he has a toy. This I believe is because he has had so little in his life that has been his. Whilst we all know it is important to be able to take something away from a dog if they have something they shouldn't, we also all know that you can teach a dog to leave, with a little time and patience, and some cunning !! Graham is gorgeous, he loves other dogs, he deserves his own forever home with his very own family.

Handsome Graham came for a walk yesterday with Geoff and me and his bestie Trixie. These two are simply lovely dogs. Easy to walk, ignore horses, cyclists, joggers and other dogs. Don’t pull and take treats so gently. Fingers crossed the both find their homes this year xx

I took Graham for a walk for the first time this afternoon with his best pal Trixie and walker Nat. Although Graham hadn't met me before he was very welcoming and not at all phased. He really is such a good natured boy and easy to walk. He walks at a good pace without pulling just happy to be out and about with Trixie. When we got back to the kennels both dogs had sausage treats which they enjoyed. love4.gif

Jim and I walked Graham and his kennel mate and best friend, Trixie today. We headed off to the paddock first as it was free. Trixie loves to charge around and play ball but Graham prefers to have a good wander around and have a sniff before he plays ball. He is such a gentle boy and loves his cuddles. We set off on the woodland walk first where Graham enjoyed having a good sniff along the way. We are blessed with lots of wildlife so there are plenty of interesting smells for the dogs to investigate. Graham is a real gent to walk and doesn't pull at all. Always a pleasure to spend time with Graham. love4.gif xx

Geoff and I walked Graham with his bestie Trixie yesterday. This boy is such an easy walk. No pulling, very obedient, not fussed by other dogs, cyclists, horses, such a good boy. He has had an issue with letting go of balls or toys, but he let Geoff take the tennis ball out of his mouth in the paddock and throw it for him, so real progress there.

Yesterday was my first time walking at Broxbourne and what a lovely environment for the dogs to explore.
Graham was my first walk of the morning and we set off, in the warm sunshine, with him leading the way. He soon settled into sniff mode and we ambled along by the river; he was curious about everything he saw: boats, geese, swans, ducks, etc so we stopped to chat about them. Graham is such a lovely dog; responsive, gentle (including with treats), unphased by passing cyclists, joggers, walkers and dogs. When I stopped to talk to a boater, Graham stood next to me and leaned into my knee for fuss and cuddles during the conversation, while simply observing life around him.
Apologies this video clip is so short but I just wanted to show how wonderful Graham's ambling along is; he's on the end of my cani-cross lead and did seem to enjoy the freedom to go from side to side. I could've walked all day with him because he was such a pleasure to spend time with.
