Well I thought I was bringing home a timid slightly unsure girl to relax slowly as the weekend unfolded...

How wrong was I, Tia unpacked her kennel bag in a nanosecond the moment she entered my house !!! and we’ve had a fabulous weekend of Tia showing me just how very very loving she is and how she loves her life to revolve around tummy tickles and cuddles - what a wonderful girl Tia is love4.gif
22387A71-A737-4C14-B808-66E9292274DC.jpeg

Tia hasn’t put a paw wrong, totally housetrained, 120% !!! Even lets me have a lie in, well she seems to love them too so who needs to go outside for an early morning wee !!! Not Tia !

She’s a tall girl so can counter surf given the chance so a reminder to me to keep things out of reach (my recent fosters have been shorter !!!) - she has a fabulous appetite and eats up her breakfast and dinner and yesterday to build her up she had lunch aswell ! She’s a gentle eater which fits her personality ! But doesn’t leave a morsel, she’s very thorough!!!
The only thing she has taken from my worktop is a 2nd dentastix that I’d left out for her for later - well it’s clearly me who’s the silly one there !!!
No begging when I’ve been eating - the look sometimes but that might be because of the chicken bits I was giving her !!!

Tia was slightly nervous of new and sudden noises, even the air from the fan spooked her but over the course of the day and through to today she’s taking them all in her stride and not at all jumpy. Dogs barking in the distant gardens don’t concern her, lifts an ear but that’s all.

We went for an evening walk last night out of the heat of the day - too hot for me if not too hot for her during the day !!! Walked well on the lead, a bit cross-crossy but she didn’t know the area after all - interested to listen to all the families in their gardens and walked past a lovely lab walking towards us on their lead very well, no reaction at all, interested but happy to walk on by with me as was the lab with her human !

On the first night I went upstairs, I’d not left the curtains drawn so it was hot in my bedroom but I put the fan on. Tia was apprehensive to join me upstairs (maybe not previously allowed ?) but some treats got her up there and onto my bed. She just wanted cuddles and tickles bless her, she really gets in close to you, but didn’t want to settle - I opened the bedroom door as it was very warm and she took herself downstairs. I got changed into my pj’s and went downstairs to check on her, bless she didn’t immediately recognise me and did bark a little. Reassurance with my voice and she soon joined me in the lounge where I’d gone to sit and more cuddles required !
I decided to let her have the run of the rooms to choose where she wanted to sleep - Maybe too much choice too soon as she barked as I went upstairs - so downstairs to the lounge it was, me settled on the sofa and her in her chair and a good night was had by all !!! It was so much cooler downstairs I think I slept better there !
I say all this as night no.2 was nothing like this ! I’d left my curtains closed and the fan on in my bedroom so it was much cooler last night. I let Tia decide where she wanted to sleep again and she didn’t hesitate to follow me upstairs, pop on the bed, snuggle up and then stretch out with her face in front of the fan and settle for sleep - such a sweetheart love4.gif
I heard her tail wagging, thud thud thud on the bed when she saw me wake this morning !!! and soon had a lovely greeting and kiss from this beautiful baby xxx

Right too many words time for the pics to do the talking ...

Her playful side has come out and there’s no mistaking the whippet side of her when she charges round the garden and bounds when I throw the ball for her :D
She’s enjoyed some rolling too :D and then a rest after the sudden exertion of energy in the chase !

Very loving indeed, the most cuddly soft and daft foster in a long time, proper paws round your neck kinda cuddles and front paws that hold you like hands, LOVE HER love4.gif

Tia is coping well with the heat, choosing my cooler tiled kitchen floor or the spot infront of the fan in the dog bed or indeed on 'her' chair - in between coming to sit next to me and have cuddles :D

Tia was also very good as I spoke with my neighbour over the fence in my garden, I was unsure how Tia would react so called her and took her collar gently and bless, she stood next to me quiet as a mouse whilst I had a chat with my neighbour over the fence thumbs.gif

Playtime in my garden ...

So hot today I got the paddling pool out of the shed - now I discovered last night as I was watering the pots with the hosepipe that Tia likes to get the water out the hose and ultimately decided she'd like the nozzle so I resorted instead to a watering can !!! So watering can it was to fill the paddling pool too ! Tia was funny, to her it was one big waterbowl to drink from 0002.gif]

Do you think she’s trying to tell me something...
“Put that laptop and tablet away and cuddle me “ perhaps !!!
EA922543-0C4B-4432-921B-2A93B5329565.jpeg
She is laying on the phone, my mobile, the TV remotes and my camera !!!

Tia is so the character ! She will do a bark or a high pitches squeak to tell me something, be that her water bowl is empty, she wants to go outside, she wants something to eat !!!, it’s dinner time or simply cuddle me now !!!

Tia has been a good girl whilst I worked at home today, started the day as she meant to go on...

I promised her I would finish at 6, she was very happy when we moved onto the sofa ...
657CA5EA-4CA5-4BCE-818B-248FB2BA8A15.jpeg
Bless her, she’s been a good girl today - prefers to be centre of your world but she did let me get on with my work very well and it has been a boring day for her !

I got the occasion bark when she wanted a proper cuddle ! She needs proper love rather than a pat on her head ! Paws round your neck kinda love love4.gif
I did make sure she got outside quite frequently in to the garden for a change of scene and a bit of ball chase before it got too hot. Tia has got great at fetch and giving up the ball to go again :D
There was some noisy work going on in the garage a few doors down from my garden which she could hear which unnerved her a little - happy to be reassured by me and soon settled but strange noises do still startle her bless.
She also loves the treat ball filled with treats - very clever and got them out very quickly but it kept her occupied for a short while at least !!!

We had an early morning walk and and evening walk in the cool breeze - Tia gets sooo excited by the appearance of her harness and seems to enjoy her walks - some uncertainty there I think as she often looks for reassurance and that beautiful tail that wags so well at home does stay between her legs. She is always delighted to get back home and knows my house now, the moment we are in the porch her tail wags like mad !!!
We passed a few dogs on our walk, all on lead and a safe distance away, Tia didn’t seem bothered by them, neither interested to meet nor worried by them, quite indifferent. Tia isn’t worried by passing cars, joggers or vans - takes all that in her stride very well.

This was her this evening as I was eating my dinner (on a tray on my lap) - she just loves to be close to you - she certainly loves her people love4.gif

Paws on my feet, bless xxx
We’re relaxing again now watching football and now tennis ! Tia non-plussed by the sport but happy to be with me !

Tia is back to kennels in the morning, she doesn’t know so will enjoy another nice relaxing sleep on my bed tonight :D
I think she’s wagging her tail in her sleep right now !!! Legs have been twitching and then her tail started, love that she’s having nice dreams xxx
