Hello Di and John

Buster continues to thrive and amuse us every day. He is an absolute foodie - lives for his three meals a day and just loves his walks.

When we felt secure enough to let him off the lead we had no idea that Buster has no idea that he can walk or trot off the lead, he just runs and runs and runs. We have to be careful where we let him off as he is completely deaf and will quite often run out of our sight and then he panics when he can’t see us (his sight is also limited). People look at us very strangely as we jump up and down waving our arms to get his attention!!

As I said before he is an absolutely lovely old gentleman. So caring and wonderful with my grandchildren - it feels like he’s always been here.

Once again, thank you for giving us the opportunity to have him in our lives.

It's now been nearly 4 and a half months since Ollie took over our lives (in a good way) and he's coming on in leaps and bounds (literally, he's great at both!). So I thought I'd drop you another quick update - hope that's ok?

Ollie and I went away with my mum at the beginning of May to the east Norfolk coast. At that point I'd literally had him for just 3 months and I wondered how he'd settle in a strange house etc, but I've come to the conclusion that as long as they're with the people they feel safe with, it doesn't really matter where they are - because he didn't bat an eyelid. He also had my mum wrapped around his paw with regards to throwing his toys (to the point I had to tell them both off ?).

He had walks on a deserted beach twice a day - and his first totally off-lead run - which he loved. As long as I have a ball I think he'll come back......

He's definitely still a work in progress with some ingrained behaviour, but I have some training booked for early July, now he's much more settled (although he still doesn't sleep through the night). We went to an enclosed field at the weekend and although he's little, the boy can jump!!

I've attached a couple of photos of him from the beach and the field and, it may be me, but I think he looks like he's happy. I hope so.

Thanks again for letting him come to us and take care
