Well,what can I say about Siog, she is such a gentle, patient little lady.

She arrived here yesterday, a very nervous confused little girl who didn't know what was going on, It wasn't helped by Harry acting like a little diva and being protective of all his stuff including his daddies. Having said that it wasn't helped by her eating Harry's dinner as soon as she walked in the door, she has a great appetite, it's amazing how she keeps her lovely trim figure.

She was lovely and quiet all night, not a peep. She slept downstairs and gave me a lovely warm welcome this morning, she was still very nervous though, so I took her for a walk on her own. She met some of the usual locals walking their dogs and she was great with all of the other dogs, and their owners. They all commented on her beautiful coat.

This afternoon we went for a lovely walk in the park, I kept her on the lead just to be on the safe side, she loved it and even Harry let her play with his ball, so the ice has been broken, when we got home they were like two new dogs, sharing toys, chasing each other, etc. :)

As I said this girl is such a gentle, patient soul. She will make some family a really loving companion. I'll update more later in the week.

In the meantime here are a few of photos of this stunning lady!!
:D :D

Siog has certainly come out of her shell in the last couple of days, there has been lots of tail wagging and kisses for everyone. Even our little diva Harry has warmed to her and they now put on regular performances of the 100m sprint around the house or the tug of war ;)

Siog is quiet good on the leash and getting better. I let her of the leash yesterday in the dog park and she came back everytime I called her, even when there were distractions.

We also met a group of children playing in the park, they asked could they pet her, she was as good as gold and even sat down as they cuddled her.

Here are just a couple of photos; its hard to get a decent shot as she is always on the go.

What a lovely weekend that was. Myself, Harry and Siog did the Bark in the Park in At Anne's park yesterday.
Siog was fantastic with all of the noise from other dogs, and children and a rather creepy music machine. Not a bother on her.
She is still not great in the car, but she will get over that in time.

The thing that she loves the most (besides food) are lots and lots of cuddles, no matter where you sit or lie down she will be their resting her head on you. Her coat is so soft that nobody could resist petting her.

She has mastered "sit" and we are nearly there with the "pawshakes", she is quick learner once there is a little food treat in it for her.

That is all for now.

Both of you should be advertising a shampoo or coat gloss.
I wish my hair was that good. :(
Smart lad Harry up on the wall to make up for height restrictions :D
Great to see them having fun together and of course Harry having a girlfriend :P
