Well, what can I say? When we took Sam back with us on Sunday we had no intention of keeping him beyond Tuesday. We just wanted to give him a break from kennels and feed back to prospective adopters. It didn't take us long to fall in love with him. He's a monkey and it's not likely to be plain sailing, but we'll put the work in. So he's now reserved and we're going in later in the week to do the paperwork. Lynne, Simon, Robert, Bert, Skip and Sam x PS He roached today. I think that sealed the deal.

Another settled night. Sam likes playing with squeaky balls and dedding the squeakers. This morning he dragged the vet bed off the conservatory sofa and yesterday he very cagily stole a lace ribbon off the table - he did drop it when I told him to. He is so funny. I've started to do some training with him around food and treats as that's when he's the most bouncy and strong at the moment. He is starting to respond to "bed" and he does lie down for his treat eventually using the techniques learnt in our training classes. He's also started to learn what is our food and that he needs to keep away from us then. He walked really well in his evening walk and still wasn't phased by any of the noises, people, other dogs etc. Given the feedback about separation anxiety, today's task is to see how he gets on when left in the house just with the other 2 for a very short period. We'll only be next door and can watch on the camera. Lynne x

LM, thank you so very much for taking Sam out of kennels for a couple of days. So pleased to hear he has been settled, maybe what he needs is the company of a friend or two. Look forward to hearing how the rest of his stay goes. Hopefully if all goes well with you he may have a new family to take him home with them with their houndies!

We've been looking after Sam for only 24 hours and we're already smitten. He has the cutest face, softest eyes and funniest floppy ears! He hasn't been phased by anything - we'd just got him out of the van when we brought him home when a very loud ice cream van stopped outside the house - he merely looked! He is incredibly inquisitive inside the house, as expected, but can be led away other than when there's food around. We've fed the 3 of them together with no problem thus far - he'll need a slow feeder as he wolfs his food down. I'll try him with one for the afternoon feed. Simon stayed up until about 11.30pm with him last night and I went earlier in case I had to get up in the night/early given that the reports are that he has separation anxiety. We put a thundershirt on him. It's the best night's sleep we've had in ages - Skip usually wakes us up in the night/6am, but I got up at 6.45 before there was any noise from any of them. There was no mess. I checked the cameras and all 3 had stayed in their respective beds all night. We took Skip and Sam on a walk in the woods/field this morning - about 30 minutes - and, whilst strong, Sam was controllable. He wasn't phased by the traffic and was fine when we saw and passed by other dogs. I know things can change quickly when a dog is in a different home and I'm on my own with the 3 of them this afternoon and tonight so I'll post again tomorrow with an update, but hopefully he'll stay settled. We'll then be testing out leaving him on his own (with the other 2 dogs) for a short time. Watch this space......

We took Sam to the Hall Green Worcester walk today to give him a break from kennels. He needed a bit of help getting into the soft crate in the campervan but lay down straight away and travelled without a sound. He walked very well and merely looked at other breeds, no pulling. Off lead dogs playing in the field interested him but he didn't pull or bark. A quick pull on the lead and a call and we were on our way. We went to the cafe after with the other greyhounds and owners and he was VERY interested in treats and human food so will need training but the fact he's food orientated should help enormously with training. We took him back to kennels and could hear him whining once in his kennel (not unusual at feeding time and with people around) but it tugged on my heart strings especially as he's such a baby. So we've brought him home for a day or 2 to see how he gets on in a home with other dogs - we have Bert 13 and Skip 5. Right now they are all flat out after a busy day but we haven't left them alone. When one of us goes out of the room, Sam goes to the gate but we think it's inquisitiveness at this stage. He clearly loves people. He didn't make any noise. I'll put another post on tomorrow. Hopefully he'll sleep! Also I hope Skip sleeps as he's finding it a bit odd having a newbie around. Bert doesn't seem to care less! He takes it all in his stride.

Our 2nd hound Peg suffered terrible separation anxiety even though she had the lazy big brother Shaun, perseverance, time, patience and the wonderful help we received from the Kennels and our home checker Lynn Bibb worked
wonders for her and allowed her to blossom into the cheeky little girl she is today. Don’t get me wrong it’s not a quick fix, it took Peg over 6 months to settle but so worth it ?? Sam you will be fine trust me, your time will come and you too will blossom xxxxxxx

Well Mr. Cheeky....you are lively, strong but cuddly and lovely and I am sorry we had a false start with walkies before we finally got out! Blame Auntie Kate for dangling that carrot but you were so good & patient and once out walked very nicely. I hope your nose feels perfect very soon...its healing nicely and a tiny battle scar will surely get you extra attention when hoomans come a visiting. I will look forward to seeing you again very soon for a repeat performance of love & cuddles. Be good. Xx
