It was lovely to catch up with Bertha again today and she is looking so well. She was very keen to get out for a walk and told everyone so rather loudly while Lynne went to get a suitable harness for her. 0002.gif] She is such a character. We enjoyed a lovely walk, she walks quickly and with purpose and she skipped joyfully through the long grass. Bertha is a dog who makes you smile.
(Sorry about the photos Bertha, they are not brilliant although you were not helping by raiding my bag for treats!) 0002.gif]

Beautiful Bertha was spayed today and she's spending the weekend with me to recover and that means I get to enjoy Bertha cuddles all weekend, Bertha cuddles are the best love4.gif

So it seems the news and all the royal wedding stuff was more interesting than Graham Norton as atlast Bertha has given the tele a miss and finally settled down to snooze ...

Bertha is such a loving happy girl, John described her tail as a helicopter tail and he’s oh so right ! It never stops wagging if she has your attention, she is delightful xxx

Fabulous night with Bertha sleeping beside me on my bed :D
Totally housetrained and no snoring that I heard anyway !!!

I ensure I help her up and down my wooden stairs with her wobbly back legs, she doesn’t let them hold her back so I need to ensure she doesn’t slip on the stairs ! Her enthusiasm to just get going is inspiring love4.gif

Loved her breakfast again and her secondsie breakfast of a scoop of natural yoghurt thumbs.gif

And she really is a little sun worshipper - have both my conservatory doors and the back door open and Bertha loves it - as she does playing with a ball, coming and going as she pleases, I’ve made a little step for the sofa so she can get up with ease and she loves to come sit very close beside me so I can put my arm around her and give her lovely soft muzzle a kiss xxx

And now for some photos love4.gif

Enjoying the garden first thing this morning :D

Lovely to see Bertha. She has made a truly amazing recovery from the time she first went to the vets when it was definitely "touch and go". Now she is looking for her forever home where she will thrive and offer, in return, loyalty and affection.

more sunny garden time :D

drinkies
and evening walkies, Bertha LOVES her walkies thumbs.gif I love the way she totters along with her bottom swaying and tail following suit ! Bertha is good on the lead be it an extender or shorter variety !
P5194806.JPG
Bertha does still occassionally cough but very rarely does any mucus come up now, the coughing is usually around some sudden exertion or a change of atmosphere like inside to outside and she manages it well - all a big improvement on her earlier condition which is reassuring. Her back legs whilst wobbly do take her everywhere she wants to go and she loves running after a ball, she has those legs well under control in a uniquely Bertha way! my slippy wooden floors sometimes get the better of her but then they do many of my fosters !
I guess what I'm getting to is that she is well and truly ready for her new home and these shouldn't be a worry for her new family, Bertha can and does manage very well and her family can do likewise!

Another lovely day with Bertha, she does enjoy having the run of the garden and coming and going as she pleases. She is such an undemanding girl and excellent company, often making me burst into a smile all through the day :D

here she is playing with a ball ...

Bertha is with me today whilst I am working at home before heading back to Lynne this afternoon.

I so love this girl, her happiness, her spirit and her amazing waggy tail !
Also her independence and confidence. I am working in my front room, Bertha has taken herself off to the lounge where the conservatory doors are open and she can come and go to the garden, I can spy her from my desk and she is currently laid out sunbathing on the rug in the conservatory !!! Nice and warm with a breeze blowing through, very good choice Bertha :D
