Bob goes home, and is appreciated

 Bob went off to his new home in Hampshire on Saturday.  He was just a little reluctant to leave, but as his new owner took him straight to a pub for pub lunch, then he snoozed on his brand new bed in the car all the way home, I think he wasn't too distressed!   I spoke to his new owner the next morning and he already sounded like he was settling in, and yesterday evening I got this: 

"Bob is just adorable. He's settling in very well, and has touched noses with Lizzie the Cat (the photo missed the moment!). We've been for walks by the river and round fields and met several dogs - all very friendly. He's been visited by a 4 year old 'princess' (she likes dressing up) and by my 5 year old godson and he was very gentle and they loved him to bits. I haven't tried him with the bantams yet, but this morning while visiting Millie the Goat he met two wood pigeons and was a bit in awe of them!! The other picture is with Millie (and the Shetland's Mum). As you said, everyone loves Bob! Last night he spent the night reclining on the sofa, which is OK.

Everyone has said what good condition he's in, and that's all down to you. You've done a wonderful job, because he must have been quite a poor old boy when you got him.

Thank you very much for all your help in adopting him - I'm very lucky to have him."

I'm very pleased for Bob - you can be very proud.

What bunn didn't mention is that the new owner is a distant cousin of Jon Pertwee!

Jehosaphat! Bob will be a delegate at an intergalactic peace conference before we know it! I hope he is trained to resist hypnotism should the Master show up...

Awww Bob! Glad to hear he's gone home.

Did you ever identify the source of his screaming and woe?

No, it is a complete mystery! We X rayed him - nothing - and were just about to get him in for an MRI scan when it basically went mysteriously away.

He did have a couple of minor incidents - sods law, not until the week before his adoption visit - but they were much less severe -just a few seconds pain after getting up - and I think were down to overdoing it on an extra-long walk the weekend before.

So we've said to adopter that if it comes back, the charity will cover cost of MRI & surgery if necessary, but there didn't seem much point delaying the adoption when he was bouncing around very happy and obviously not in any pain!

Well done you! I'm so glad things are looking up for Bob.

Oh, that's wonderful. I am so happy for Bob, and glad that all your hard work has paid off.

    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.
