I can’t believe I have had the dogs for only three weeks – it seems as if they have been here for ever! They have had their challenging moments, but it is lovely to see them settling in so well and enjoying their new life.
All my neighbours are saying how much weight they have lost already.
Part of this is actual weight loss, but part is increasing muscle tone. Both dogs enjoy their walks, and simply going out twice a day is having an effect. We usually do one ‘road’ walk……
…..and one which is more play.
Most of the time Isla will be running…..
… and Meg walking!
Once we get home, both love to rest in the sun if there is any.
Meg has definitely taken over Scottie’s bed. If Isla does invade, Meg glares at me to get her out!!
Meg takes any chews or treats to her bed straight away….
… but Isla walks around the house and garden to find just the right spot!
As well as making friends with all the neighbours, Isla had made friends with a group of 10 young cows. The first time they met she wasn’t sure, and as the galloped over the field to the fence, she cowered behind me. Very soon, though, she was going over to investigate, and before too long she was touching noses with them through the fence!
Taking pix with two flexi leads isn’t easy, so I took the opportunity of Elly’s recent visit to take some portraits.
And Elly in the middle with two dogs going in different directions!
(If you look closely you can see the tips of two ears and a tail in the ditch!)
