Home visit success!

Did a home visit last week for another rescue -  young family with a 2 year old little girl,  who wanted to adopt a young greyhound x whippet.   I took Az, who is the same mix (though of course a lot older!) to check them out.  

I was a little cautious because 2 is pretty young, after all,  a greyhound cross is not a small dog, and a youngish adult is going to be boingy - and this dog had not had the best of starts in life either (neglect and mange) though she had been in foster for a while and was used to children. 

The little girl turned out to be beautifully socialised with dogs: loved Az, but  behaved better than many adults: approached gently, knew she wasn't supposed to shout (though it was hard!)  and didn't pester him.  Very cute moment when she offered him the bed her toy dog sleeps in: it was rather small, but the thought was there!   Parents were pleasingly robust too: I pointed out that with a largish dog and a small child probably at some point there would be a 'tail in face' or 'child knocked over' incident, and they weren't at all bothered.  Apparently a friend's springer has already been there and done that, and both parties survived. 

I just heard they took their new dog home yesterday: I hope it will be the start of a wonderful friendship.

    There are no zones with different rules in Moscow, but still it was impossible to guess in spring what was or wasn't allowed to do; and now the situation is only a little better. Seems it happens in…

    Thank you! I may try it later today then.

    My sourdough also isn't big on the doubling in size - and it does make good bread. I think you can probably give bread a go.

    I'm not sure whether we were in Tier 1 or 2 at that point...

    LOL. Yeah, I've given up all hope of making sense of these shifty weird rules.

    Love all the waterside encounters!

    Wow! We get huge aircraft carriers in Brooklyn occasionally but I have never shared the water with one.
