well Hubby and son loved Biddy so if she is not nabbed by someone with another female we hope to be considered to foster her. She seems to have disappeared off the list though

well to our delight we were able to take Biddy home today. She was as good as gold on the way home in the car with her head stuck out the window. She was admired by quite a few on the way.Well who can help it with that face . We met the incumbant Buzz down in the park after Biddy had a good run around and it is going well so far. I believe the first few minutes are telling. After four hours of chasing in the back garden they are now exhausted and lying apart .Biddy can sit on command if there is food involved and she can open door handles that are level with the light switches and she likes bananas! I think she would eat anything, she has delivered a few licks to my son and myself so she seems to approve of us. I think we will see the real Biddy emerging over the next few days.

Thanks so much for fostering Biddy, it sounds as if it is all going well.

we are all tired here today, the legs are walked off all of us .Buzz is not impressed but Biddy is in love and you know women usually get their way! She keeps sideswiping him with kisses.They did have fun together and now a calm has descended . Biddy eats like a horse but i think she has a good bit of catching up to do. She now smells a lot sweeter, while she didnt complain she is not a big fan of the bath but you can now see her lovely highlights . She is such a sweet character and would be a great dog for kids because she is so laid back and very gentle on the mouth. Have not tried removing food just yet but will do when she settles a bit more.

the photo transfer just isnt working for me
Anyway I will try again tomorrow ,were are all calm and ready for bed in this house Biddy is stretched out and Buzz is curled up on the couch.I think she was proably not allowed on the couch.She is a clever girl she sits on command and lies down if bribed. She can be good on the lead but its hard to be good when you are on the lead all the time.She would like a good run but has had to settle for a slow trot beside me. She has relaxed a lot and is now very determined to establish her position trying to get out the door before me and jumping up on people.Not sure what mix of dog she is ,but she is very cute. I will try and show her off tomorrow.

Well Madam Biddy is almost over her cough and has put weight on since she arrived.She is food obsessed and learns very fast if there is a reward that can be eaten. She seems to have a reasonable amount of training she is good on the lead after a bit of exercise. She is not used to being fed from the table and so Buzz is on a new regieme. She dosent get up on the beds or the couches and we have not encouraged her as her future owners may not appreciate it.She has a lovely soft head and loves to sit on someones feet.She has stopped opening doors I think it was just anxiety. She is as good as gold at night. She loves to run ,at the moment its dragging me along after her , I am really looking forward to day 21 when hopefully she will not be in heat any longer and we can see her chase squirrrels.Image

well we had a fantastic time this morning we were out at 7 so I could let her off the lead. Boy what a beauty this gril is , she moves with such grace and glee she is excellent at recall she is a much nicer dog than our own Buzz who can be a wilful brat. When she got back home she felt more confident and challenged him trying to steal his food which did not go down well.
Other dogs do not seem interested in her so I think we should be safe at day 21 but I would be grateful if anyone could tell me how i can be sure .
This is a dream dog for an active family who wants a large gentle intelligent dog. She sometimes gives the impression that her previous handling was not always kind, any sudden arm movements and she ducks or if you pet her when she is asleep she flinches slightly and then relaxes into the rub. What a pet.

a few pictures of Biddy the first to show off her rangy shape and
of course her collar .The others you can see her lovely coat which is flecked with white on her body.Im afraid she says she is too tired for the photo shoot but I hope that you can get a feel for her huge beautiful face.I hope it works.

Biddy is not really either a licker or a wagger , she does both sparingly. She loves playing with other dogs, she is not a dog that would intentionally stray but she sometimes looses where you are and panics and runs off after any moving person but she comes back as sooon as she is called but you have to be quick because she covers so much ground in a short time. I suspect that is how she was separated from her owners. She is very friendly towards other dogs but she is submissive, she has started noticing ducks and squirrels but just finds them interesting I have yet to bring her o a walk where someone does not say awww or ask me what type of breed she is. She is slightly above knee height.
