Tuck 4 year old staffie -HOMED

Postby ste15 » Mon Jul 13, 2009 8:15 pm

Hi everybody, this is my first time on the DID Forum. My girlfriend sinead and I adopted Tuck, a four year old staffie. I would like to post some photos of him settling in, can anyone help me out and let me know how to do this. We're both not used to forums or computers too much so any help would be greatly appreciated. Tuck has settled in really well, he greets everybody with a friendly grin and gets on great with everybody. He has gotten use to our routine now so he knows when it is time for his walks, time for dinner and even when we are bringing him off for the day.

Hi all, well its been almost a year since tuck came into our lives and it has been absolutely fantastic! :D We are so glad we adopted him, and as usual with restricted breeds, we do get the odd ill educated people cowering in fear when we're walking him, but in general, everybody loves him.
Tuck had lost the hair on his ears from stress when we got him but all that has grown back and his confidence has grown daily. We have a routine of walks twice a day, for 45 minutes at a time, so he has also lost his little tubby belly.
Some bad news though :cry: , we found a small lump on his hind paw, he went in to our vet 2day for a biopsy and to have it removed, so as I type, he is lying beside us absolutely wasted from the anaestethic. We have never seen him so quiet! We havent had to put the lampshade on his head yet but I am sure, like the muzzle, he wont like it much.
Hopefully we get good results back from the lab. Fingers crossed! Also, thank Christ for pet insurance! I would advise all pet owners to get it, you never know.

I really hope all goes well and the results coming back from the biopsy will be nothing worrying. You are right to take pet insurance. In the long run it can save you money. Poor guy has lost the hair on his ears but I'm sure that after a while, when he'll settle completely, they'll grow back. He must love going outside with you twice daily!!
We'll keep our 5 pairs of paws crossed for you and Tuck he looks lovely.
