Well Izzie has now been with us just over a week and is coming along in leaps and bounds.

It is very hard to get a picture of her - we think she was a supermodel in a previous life and will only let you take her picture if she is getting paid!!! hence every time the camera comes out she turns her back or does a runner :lol:

The only picture I was able to take was while she was having her first bath - this was a neccesity due to her rolling around in the mucky puddles while out for her walk on Saturday. She was so good in the bath and thought it was hilarious to run down the stairs with me in pursuit with a towel while she shook all over the house :D She is just a ball of playfulness and loves her toys - which she manages to unstuff and unsqueak in record time.

She is very good at sit, stay and wait and we are now working on shaking paws. She is also a total flirt and has fallen in love with "himself". She just sits on his lap for ages and if he stops rubbing her our Izzie does not hesitate in letting him know she is not happy. Yesterday she climbed across him and lay on top of his Sunday papers because she was just not getting enough attention (it's only bad news in the papers anyway!!) :D

She has definitely settled into a routine and is just a joy to have in the house. We are so happy she chose us to be her forever family.

PS:

Izzie wanted me to say a HUGE HI AND THANK YOU to her fabulous foster parents Raj and Inga, Barbara (and Holly) who also looked after her for a while and Kathy and everyone at DID for everything you have done for her.

Since being rescued from the pound she has known nothing but love and affection and because of of all of you guys she is just a happy, health, cuddly and very energetic little lady who thinks it his hilarious to have two "mature" (questionable!!) adults (even more questionable!!) chasing her round the house playing ball and rolling around on the floor :lol:

She thinks everyone involved with DID is amazing and asked me to send lots of love.

So Izzie had her first doggie visitor to her new pad :D The very pretty and very ladylike Scamp the Spitz came to visit bringing a bag of her favourite food (thanks Marie). They were initially unsure of each other but after a couple of sniffs they just got on with things. Our Izzie was very keen to point out that this was her patch though and she was the boss!! She is definitely a little tomboy who loves rough and tumble. My sister thought I was making it up when I told her how hard it is to get a picture but you can back me up now can't you Marie. Here are a couple of pics of her and Scamp enjoying the sun :lol:

Had the greatest of pleasures in meeting the gentlest little soul Izzie and she worked her magic on Percy and calmed him down ....
he was very happy to be in her company and trot around the shop after her it was very sweet....

Izzie had a fantastic day up at Maxi Zoo on Saturday and her and Percy got on like a house on fire. I think Percy might have had a bit of a crush on her and in fairness who could blame him - she is just adorable and just wants to talk to everyone. I have to say Percy was an absolutely gorgeous dog and Izzie and I were very close to taking him home with us :lol:

Izzie's weight loss is progressing well and she is now just over 8kg. The vet wants her to get down to at least 7kg so we have a bit to go but she can walk for much longer and loves nothing more than running across the playing fields near where we live so we will get there eventually.

She was so excited to see Raj and Inga on Saturday and it was fantastic to meet the lovely people who did so much for Izzie when she came out of the pound. She is still a bit camera shy - personally I think she is waiting till she can show off her fantastic new figure and she will be posing like a supermodel :lol:

Hi All - Just wanted to give a quick update on the bundle of joy that is Izzie and to ask for a bit of advice please.

So Izzie has been with us just over 2 months now and is totally settled and completely ruling the roost in that she has the two of us totally wrapped around her furry little paws. She is such a character and so much fun in the house. She LOVES her squeaky bone and does an adorable song and dance when we squeak it for her. Her favourite game is "chase me" round the house and just gets so excited. She has been loving being out in the garden so much over the last couple of weeks because there are so many bushes and plants to rummage under. She is a total terrier exploring, sniffing and hunting. And we can sleep easy in our beds at night as she is a fantastic guard dog warning all the neighbourhood cats to stay out of her garden!! It is just hilarious to watch her telling them off when they sit on the garden wall staring down at her :lol:

Her weight loss is progressing slowly but she can walk much further distances now and we have even had a few early morning jogs (some of them unplanned especially the one where we chased a fox - such a terrier :) )

She absolutely LOVES my other half and as soon as he is in the door she is up beside him on the sofa for cuddles. She will just lie on his lap for hours and the two of them are the best of pals.

There is just one thing I need a bit of advice on - Recall when we are out for walks.

She is so good with all her commands; sit, stay, wait etc. Her recall is great around the house and garden but as soon as she steps out the front door she just gets so excited and makes a run for it!! Like I say she is great in the garden and I think we are making progress but as soon as I let her off the lead she was gone and no amount of calling, waving treats or squeaking her toys can convince her to come back until she is ready with a result I am too nervous to let her of the lead.

Would it be worthwhile going to professional classes with her? I have tried everything else. I want her to have the most out of everything and because she is such a typical terrier I want her to be able to go exploring in the fields where we live safe in the knowledge that she will come back instantly when called.

Once again a HUGE thank you everyone who looked after Izzie (Robin) when she first came out of the pound. I still cannot believe she ended up there in such a state but I am so happy she came into our lives. She is just adored so much. Thank you xxx

Hey there folks. So I was taken to the Beauty Parlour this week. This was my first time there so I wasn't sure how to react but hey check me out. How cute am I (well everyone keeps telling me I am and that I look years younger :lol: ) and my forever family are giving me even more cuddles and belly rubs which is my favourite thing.

A huge thank you to Caroline at Waggles Dog Grooming for making me so pretty and looking after me so well.

Izzie
