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 !!!

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 !!!

:smiley-chores002.gif:

Photos tomorrow !

What an amazing girl you are Grace, Amazing Grace love4.gif

So I told Mum & Dad I was bringing Gracie home for the weekend and she was the one who was scared of walking so it would be an ‘in the garden weekend’ which I knew Grace would love.
And indeed she does love that BUT SHE HAS ALSO LOVED ANOTHER WALK THIS MORNING blob6.gif] woo.gif] blob6.gif] love4.gif

Just goes to show, keep your expectations in check and these wonderful woofers will always surprise you every time woo.gif]
Mum doesn’t believe me now about Grace and her walkies !!!

I know this is just a moment, Grace will still have her wobbles going out into the big wide world for walkies, but she can and does enjoy it, just gotta be when she wants it :D And when she wants to its a super enjoyable walk that is so so special love4.gif
We went out the side gate where the cars are parked, Grace’s tail and bum went low which is the sure sign she’s nervous as anything, I had to move my car so in she jumped to the passenger seat, I moved the car along, parked up again and out she jumped. Save instead of heading inside like I expected, she strolled off up the road so I duly followed thumbs.gif

The plan was that we would all go to the local country park in Mum and Dads car and hopefully Grace could jump out there and enjoy a cuppa at the small cafe there. Instead of that Grace and I walked 25 mins to the cafe and met my folks there - wey hey, blooming fantastic Gracie-pie xxxxxx we both enjoyed it very much :D
Coffee for us and a bit of Dads ice cream for Grace !!!
Then Grace and I walked on, another 10mins or so before hopping into the car as it was getting very hot - my choice, not Grace’s thumbs.gif
Loved it woo.gif]

Yesterday morning brekkie in the sunshine, I say brekkie, it was Graces 3rd breakfast !!! She had enjoyed her breakfast followed by some natural yoghurt and this was toast time !!!

Grace also had a bath yesterday morning before I headed off, good as gold albeit not her definition of fun ! She endured it in good faith and once over I think she actually liked being wet and cool ! We enjoyed her super soft fur and sweet smelling :D

Cuddles when I got home ...

Like I've said above, I had no expectation of Grace going for a walk, we were all set to take a drive in the car as I know Grace enjoys that and head to the cafe in the car - that was all going to be just lovely, but bless this gorgeous girl she surpassed herself, led the way and walked from my folks house all the way to the cafe, enjoyed her bit of ice cream and lots of fuss and then didn't hesitate to carry on walking - LOVE HER, love4.gif

We had a refusal at the rear gate to the garden but Grace wanted to go out the side gate this evening ! Dad was sorting out his car so the back doors were open, Grace jumped in and then straight out the same side and we were off ! Another lovely evening walk in the shady spots of the pavement, along the alleyway and over the corner of a field. Lovely walk again, Grace is just fantastic love4.gif

Maybe she knew there was a sausage supper waiting for her when she got home !!! She certainly enjoyed it !

Mum and I sitting outside in the garden where it’s cool at last, Grace takes that as a cue to play !

Grace drops the ball in my lap !! This is her clear communication!!! Play ball with me now !!!

Can’t believe I haven’t mentioned Grace’s happy thumping tail !!!

Such a waggy tail and it responds by wagging quicker and quicker every time you tell Grace she’s a good girl - which is often !!!

It’s like a drum roll getting faster and faster !!!
