Just thought I’d drop you a line and some pictures to let you know how Timothy is doing since he came home on Monday. Firstly, we have decided (or the children have!) to change his name to Wilf – hope that’s ok!
He is doing fantastically well and has settled in very quickly. He’s such a lovely, placid dog and if anything it seems his playful side has been a bit suppressed from being locked in the shed all this time, but gradually we are bringing it out. The toilet training is going very well and we have only had one accident, which was on the first day when he decided to have a huge wee in the dining room! Since then he seems to quickly be falling into a routine and is happily trotting out into the back garden to do his stuff, in return for a treat. He has also settled down very well to the nightime routine. He is sleeping in the utility room. On the first night he scratched at the door for a few minutes and then cried for 20 minutes or so before settling down, but for the last few nights we haven’t heard a peep out of him. He comes barrelling out of the room and knocks you over when you open the door in the morning, drowning us in licks! Everyone here, neighbours included, have fallen in love with Wilf immediately. He has met a few of the other dogs in the street with no problems and my daughter Charlotte in particular has fallen head over heels in love with him. Its really touching to see her so happy again as the death of Larry, our previous dog, hit her very hard. My dad has also started to form a great relationship with him and has had him out for 2 or 3 long walks in the snow. All in all things couldn’t be going better and coming to Brysons was the best decision I ever made. Thanks once again for the kindness and support my family received over what was a very emotional Christmas. I’ll keep you up to date with the latest news on Wilf.
