Our new dog
As I said last time, nothing adoption related will be happening for a long time now, but we do have one new family member we’d like to introduce you to:
This is Zeb, short for Zebedee (as in the Magic Roundabout character, ‘cos he’s a bit bouncy at times. :)). We got him from the local shelter a couple of weeks ago and he’s settling in wonderfully well. He’d been there for almost two months (one of the longest ‘inmates’), and we’ve no idea why, because he’s a total sweetie and so well behaved.
He’s great with kids and other dogs. In fact, he seems to love everybody, though next door’s cat isn’t too keen on him. He picks things up fast, and has already learnt ‘down’, ‘stay’, ‘leave it’, ‘wait’, etc. (he already knew ‘sit’ and ‘give paw’), but he doesn’t want to learn ‘heel’ – it’s far more fun to pull ahead & sniff all those new smells when he’s out for a walk.
