Noelle & Brutus update - wonderful!

Hi Sheri

It's nice to hear from you. The Summer is going well. Too much work, but at least we're all off to Vancouver Island tomorrow for a break (doggies too). Noelle and Brutus are doing well, although Noelle has a new tumour. It's in between her toes and the vet says that to operate would probably require an amputation. So for the time being it's being treated with a steroid to minimise irritation and it doesn't seem to be much affecting her quality of life at the moment. The reality is that at some stage she'll succumb to tumours, but she's still a happy, sweet dog (she doesn't like any other dogs apart from Brutus, but we work around that).

Meanwhile, Brutus has grown fast and is a beautiful dog. He's responded well to training is all but one respect. He just loves to play with all other dogs and if he spots one in the distance will just bolt and become completely deaf ! But given that there's not an ounce of aggression in his interaction, it's not a real problem and we'll continue to work on the distance commands. He'll be very sad when Noelle eventually goes and we'll probably then need to look at another companion.

Anyway, they're a delightful pair and are both very happy. I'm attaching a couple of pictures.

Now that you've mailed me it's reminded me that i never set up a monthly donation which I will now take care of.

I hope that you are having a good Summer.

Best regards
