I had the pleasure of spending some time with Grace on Sunday and I am so proud of how far she has come. When we first met a month or so ago, she was reluctant to go outside and we sat in her kennel. On Sunday, we went across the back field and sat in the grass watching the other dogs in the paddock, she was alert and interested. We then moved to sit under the tree at the front, we watched the comings and goings as people came and went, with her tail wagging it was a real delight. I do hope she finds her forever home soon with people who will continue to build her confidence and see her personality shine.

Sarah and I took Grace to the paddock today. I have to say she is looking very trim and fit now that she is getting some exercise.
Here she is sitting patiently, waiting for me to throw the ball.

Took this baby out. She was not keen on leaving the surroundings of the kennels but with a little encouragement we got a short walk in. She is a gentle soul who just needs the time to adjust. The right owner is out there, I just know it.

Grace and I had such a lovely time in the paddock on Sunday. Before we went I sat with her in the kennel for a while as she was still a bit nervous, but once we got there, wow she was in her element. She went back and forth fetching the ball, running around, thoroughly enjoying herself, it was such a joy to see. :smiley-bounce016.gi:

After a week away I was delighted to take Grace out as my first walk of the day yesterday and what a lovely lovely time we had woo.gif]

No hesitation leaving the Kennels and led me straight to the paddock thumbs.gif Leads unclipped and it was time to play !

Many of the tennis balls were in a rack ledged on the side of the picnic bench and this confused Grace a bit !!! She was on the wrong side of the rack, under the bench, trying to work it out with me laughing at her antics !!!

After paddock time we went to the poets hut, Grace needed some encouragement to walk that way but we got there and she thoroughly enjoyed herself :D

I took Grace for a walk today with Crystal and Christina. She was reluctant at first but once out of the car park she walked through the woods fairly well, trying to turn around intermixed with running to catch back up with Crystal, good for keeping fit!
We headed to the stream and Grace loved it in the water, splashing around, up and down for quite a while.
Grace is a really friendly lady and once settled in a home will I am sure be out and about with no problems.

I picked Gracie up from Broxbourne on my way to my folks this evening - for us to enjoy her company and vice versa this weekend woo.gif]

LOVE this girl, she’s soooooo affectionate and she was very happy to see me and jump in my car to head to my folks, good girl all the way round and up the motorway and very keen to make friends with Mum and Dad on arrival and check out their house and garden thumbs.gif

“Hello Mum, Sarah’s told me all about you, I hear you are going to be Chief tummy tickler this weekend” 0002.gif]

Super proud of this wee girl today, I was heading up to Birmingham with my brother to watch my niece Imi run, leaving at 11 and not back til 6. Grace was staying with mum and dad, I asked Grace to be a good girl for them and infact she was a superstar woo.gif]
My mum has fallen hook line and sinker for her charms love4.gif

Super proud moment number 2 ... Grace went for a walk this evening with me and mum from their house thumbs.gif thumbs.gif thumbs.gif
Mum and Dad have a back gate out of the garden onto an alleyway alongside the large churchyard grounds - I didn’t have high hopes for a successful walk but as the day cooled (slightly !) I popped her lead and harness on, Grace always loves that bit and gets very excited :D
Mum went first and Grace followed woo.gif]
We enjoyed a short 15/20 minute or so walk along the alleyway to the local allotments where you can walk between them and back home again - superstar Grace again woo.gif]
Mum saying to me “but I thought you said she wouldn’t walk !!!” - very clearly she did woo.gif] and I was talking a load of rubbish !!!

Photos tomorrow !
