We took a trip to Glebe farm today and returned without Buddha! He has been adopted and moved to a new home in Wales where he will live with a CAT!!
We half expected Buddha to be with us for the rest of his life as there are few people who want to take on an older dog with medical issues. It was a pleasant surprise to get a message yesterday saying someone wanted to meet him even though we were already very fond of him. Kymm traveled all the way from south Wales with her mother and they were both smitten with Buddha from the moment they saw him, Buddha was his usual charming and laid back self so all was good. Buddha is going to have a nice life as his new people wanted a companion who is happy to be be petted and fussed and Buddha is all that and more. 🙂 I did notice that when we were in the paddock at Glebe farm, Buddha didn’t lift his head much and he was a little subdued as though he thought he was going to have to go back into a kennel? as soon as he was taken towards the car his head came up and his tail wagged, he almost jumped into the car where he promptly laid down and started on a chew. As they all drove away it was like Julia and I had never existed, we regard that as a success, if a foster dog can switch to his new people without a backward glance we have done our job. 🙂

We will miss the old bloke but we are very happy knowing that he is going to be looked after and loved.
Barney is still very young at around 1 year old. He is a super boy, who will happily share with both cats and dogs in his new home. He likes to play with soft toys and rope toys and likes to have a run around the paddock, since no one told him that three legged dogs can’t do things other dogs can ;-). Barney is a little shy on first contact, but is very friendly once he gets to know you, and will be a better friend still once you have been out with him for a walk. He can pull a little at first, but he soon settles and walks very nicely on the lead. Barney loves other dogs but will not eat if another dog is around him, so he does have to be fed separately, when he will happily tuck in straight away.
