Just had my home check done today.
Doggie due to arrive next Saturday (touch wood)

I post them on there happy ever afters page Lady. Her foster carer is on my FB too. Bless her, she must be very confused at some of my ranting on there blush

Not about the dog of course, just generally. grin

She did such a good job with her.

She needs more socialisation though. She is still mouthing a lot and needs to understand when other dogs are not interested.

My other dog continues to tolerate. Sometimes he forgets to be annoyed but he still will not put up with any contact. I really want them to be proper friends. He is only four and needs to play a bit.

She is lovely and I agree she looks like a small big dog!

Have you thought about sending AAA some pics, the rescuers in Romania would love to hear about the happy endings!

grin @ Romanian Long Dog - does the Kennel Club recognise this breed wink.

She looks lovely and you sound all loved up!

Thank you smile

She is very lovely and everyone coos over her. She is very sociable too.

I keep expecting her to do something awful, she has only been here a few days and seems to have settled in a bit too easily.

Long may it last!

I keep expecting to come across a secret stash of poo somewhere grin

She´s gorgeous!

Similar colouring to ours who´s a rescue dog with a fantastic temperament.

MrsDeVere Wed 13-Feb-13 07:55:22

Betty-Whizz (long story) smile

She is such a cutie! What's her name?

LadyTurmoil Wed 13-Feb-13 00:16:04

Really gorgeous, glad to hear it's going so well. Love the Romanian Long Dog!

MrsDeVere Tue 12-Feb-13 22:06:50

When people ask me what breed she is I say 'Romanian Long Dog'.

Cos she is long and Romanian, and a dog grin

SpicyPear Tue 12-Feb-13 22:00:03

She is absolutely adorable. You are right, she looks like she should be husky size but she is actually just a little thing!

MrsDeVere Tue 12-Feb-13 21:18:24

Just added another photo grin

SpicyPear Tue 12-Feb-13 17:35:39

More photos ? grin

Male dogs don't usually go for a female. My neighbour didn't believe me as he said his won't let any dog onto his territory. He was astonished when they did meet and in his house, when he came running in and immediately fell in love with my little girl, who spurned his advances with a cat-like purring growl, which even on my lap she didn't stop doing. My male neighbour couldn't believe it himself. < my little girl is so pretty and cute, but won't stand persistant males> grin face.

MrsDeVere Tue 12-Feb-13 12:47:31

She is lovely! So friendly. Not nervous at all.
She wii fetch toys and this delights the children.

My other of s pretty miffed and is not responding well to her attempts at play sad
But he is tolerating her well. He isn't going for her.

I love her

LadyTurmoil Tue 12-Feb-13 11:35:04

How's it going MrsDV? How is new pup and how is your other dog feeling about the new addition?! Hope it's going well smile

Aw, MrsDeVere, she looks absolutely adorable smile.
And it sounds like she is settling in nicely.
Congratulations on the successful addition to your family - I am still envy.

SpicyPear Sun 10-Feb-13 12:16:42

Aww glad it's going well. NatureDiet wet trays are great and can be bought online much more cheaply than individualy in the shops.

MrsDeVere Sun 10-Feb-13 10:11:40

Little bit of whinging last night but not much.
Went down this morning expecting carnage but nothing! Just a very excited doggie wanting a cuddle.
No wee, no poo, no chewing confused

She is asleep on my bed because we are having a lie in but I will have to give her some breakfast.

I was expecting her to be dry food but she doesn't like it. I gave her chappie last night because that is what we have in. I am taking her and DS2 to the pet shop to buy her ID disc and some toys. I will have look at the food while I am there.

Any recommendations? She looks about 6-8mths old.

BookieMonster Sun 10-Feb-13 02:09:17

She is beautiful, MrsDV!

LadyTurmoil Sat 09-Feb-13 22:09:47
