Synopsis:

December 2016

Celebrations and chaos


Toby joins the Christmas PartyWe collected our new boy, Toby, at the beginning of December.  We were worried about his long journey home in the car, but thanks to some very good advice, we all arrived home unscathed.

He travelled on the back seat in a small crate in which we had put a very comfy bed with high sides so that he felt supported but could move around.  The door was open but we fitted a barrier so that we could put hands in to comfort him but he couldn't get out.

After some initial fidgeting, he slept most of the way and wasn't sick at all, which was our biggest concern.

He has settled in well, in fact you would think he'd always lived here!

Archie loves him, Daisy tolerates him but Jack is not very keen.

Whilst we're waiting for him to have his second vaccination, we haven't taken him into the big field to run with the others so socialisation hasn't been easy in cramped conditions.  We are working hard to try to get them all to feel happy and relaxed together but the nippy little pup is proving to be a challenge.

We have, of course, started clicker training and he's taken to it like a duck to water.  It's truly amazing how quickly he picks things up. 

Speaking of picking things up, he does seem to be rather obsessed with stones!  We'll have to train him out of that before he starts swallowing them!

It's going to be a busy Christmas here, with not much time for relaxing in front of the TV thanks to our new arrival.

Best wishes to everyone and we hope you have a peaceful and enjoyable Christmas with your four legged friends!
