I am Sam!
Ok so the picturs are not all that great, but neither is my phone!! lol
So he is home. My beautiful little BC boy.
Yesterday we took a drive to Canberra. Chiko, Buzz, my mother and my sister came along for the ride. It was a fairly good drive and we made great time. And despite getting lost we got to the DAS earlier than expected.
Brendon was waiting for us with a very excited little man. He was over joyed to be meeting new people, even though he was not too keen on meeting the dogs. He had claimed a little santa toy and was running around so proud of his find. When I told him to get in the car because he was coming home with us, he almost fell over himself in excitement!
Apart from his excited bouncing every time we slowed or stopped, and a large amount of drooly licking, it turned out to be a rather uneventful trip home.
When we got home we found out how far his social issues go, when he got scared of Gabby and chose to growl and try to chase her instead of a happy greeting. He is very insecure, and while he is a lovely friendly dog toward humans, he doesn’t handle dog-dog interaction very well. Despite this set back, I am quite confident that we can get through this insecurity. Even in just the past few hours he has learnt to get along with the others in small, controlled play sessions. But unfortunately that is going to take time, and while I am not with him outside he has to be penned in the horse yard, where he will be left alone by the other dogs. But, thank god, this will only be temporary, just until we can correct this behavior.
But all in all he is a lovely dog, and exactly what I am looking for!
