Thanks buzzsmom! Brandon is barking at me now as he hasn't had much of a walk today because I'm afraid of slipping. He and Dabs has a short walk each, 2 is too many when you could do with having both arms free.
How's Pippa doing in the snow? Here's a beardy pic just for you ;)

We adopted Brandon on the 1st of May 2010. We'd been fostering him since the 2nd of February and had him with us for 3 months. When it came down to the wire we couldn't let the funny little guy go.

Happy 1st birthday Brandonburger!

Wow! So happy to see this post, I remember walking Brandon around the pound on that cold winters day with my sister. We were both so taken with Brandon - I can't wait to send her a link to his thread so she can read about his happy ending one year one. Congratulations to Brandon, Elaine and family.

Thanks lainey and justineemoe. Justineemoe, I admire anyone who walks the dogs at Ashtown, particularly in the height of winter. I was looking back over the posts here and saw you mentioned walking him on the 23rd of January 2010. You gave him a compelling paragraph for his CV.
A big thank you to you and your sister from myself and Brandon.

Very happy for little Brandon, he's won the DSPCA anniversary competition - a night's b&b with dinner, walks, plays and cuddles with the DSPCA Boarding Kennels. It was just a draw but it generated disproportionate excitement in our house. :oops: http://www.dspca.ie/GuestPhotos
Initially I was worried about placing Brandon in any kennel because we never have done so with our other dog and he had experienced being in a pound so didn't want him to feel abandoned by us. Brandon can have some difficulty being friendly to other dogs. The staff use the detailed information sheets you complete about the pet to learn about their likes/dislikes. I need not have feared, he's been back since for no particular reason just for him to have a break from the other dog in our home (who's lovely but Brandon has to micro-manage him at times he feels).

Brandon had a spruce up for spring. We have him 2 years now and he's a super happy chap.
