As you might have gathered I LOVE this girl, she’s super special, sooo loving, gentle and affectionate, simply the best love4.gif

Grace heads back to Gatwick Kennels tomorrow - that’s going to be difficult as I’d love to keep her out but I’m away for work so there’s no amount of juggling can achieve that.

We’re not thinking about that for now, here’s some earlier fun in the garden...

And inside I gave Grace a kong filled with treats, it didn’t take her long to get the hang of it, she’s a bright girl too thumbs.gif

Sweet Gracie went back to kennels on tuesday, such a good girl and I promised I'd see her on Friday love4.gif

And yesterday it was lovely to see this special girl, she has stolen a good piece of my heart that's for sure Heart fill with love.gif]

And da da dah ... Grace enjoyed a walk with me straight from the kennels, along the lane and into the village across the motorway bridge - no hesitation :D
I could sense her confidence even as we stepped out the kennel, her body language was relaxed, her tail up, looking to sniff and sample the grass immediately - then we strolled off up the lane, my heart overflowing with love and so proud of the beautiful Grace love4.gif thumbs.gif

Nothing phases her when she's out and about - and hopefully her confidence will continue to grow as she understands how much fun walkies are and they are worth that first big step - well done Gracie-pops xxx

Back at the kennels she enjoyed a fuss and cuddles and some treats ...

Grace wasn't quite so keen to walk out and about on Friday, we took a potter thro' the woods with much encouragement and I got to the fallen tree where we had lots of cuddles, then we headed back to the paddock love4.gif

I was so excited to see Grace today as I hadn’t seen her since she came back to gatwick.

She is such a gorgeous girl who has come on such a long way since she first came to rescue remedies. When I went in her kennel I was pleased she seemed to remember me. I sat on the floor and we had big hugs and a full wash of the face.

She can still be a bit hesitant to go too far but we had a fab time in the paddock and she really comes in to her own when she is running around, she came up to sit with me on the swinging chair and played catch the ball.

We then ventured a bit further in to the poets hut and then round the back to get back in the kennels.

She is such a lovely dog and as she builds trust she is happy to go with you and play. She will bring a lot of joy to whoever is lucky enough to home her and continue to build her confidence, and what a great smile!

Grace delighted us on Friday, she was very clear that she wanted to go walkies in the big wide world and she wanted both Anne & I to go with her, not content with 1 human for company Gracie demands two !!!
No hesitations at all, we were both so very very proud of her :D woo.gif] :D

Grace enjoyed a walk from the kennels again today, she wanted both Anne and I to join her again and kept checking both of us were still there ! Anne stopped to pick some blackberries at one stage and Grace looked round as if to say ‘errr what do you think you doing, hurray up now don’t fall behind !!!’
Grace didn’t mind the rain at all and totally loved her towel rub down afterwards!

After walking she hopped into my car and after obligatory cuddles on my lap in the drivers seat she moved over to the passenger seat ! Travelled beautifully home and straight through to the garden for a wee, good girl Grace xxx

As I was already wet through from walking in the rain all day I thought bath time before tea time, for Grace not me !!! Good as gold in the bath but wouldn’t say it’s her favourite thing, she mostly endured it with good grace !
She does smell beautiful now and her coat is looking lovely and shiny love4.gif

Bed time and I needed to make up my bed, Grace helped me ??!!?? See pics ...

Grace’s favourite toy at mine is scooby doo - scooby doo was partially de-fluffed by Grace on her last stay but it still Grace’s favourite - this pic is one of my faves xxxx
