However, young Brook is still with me and by the looks of the photograph, very much at home!
I'm really pleased with the way things are progressing, both in terms of her training and her socialising with other dogs. She's half the size of my dog Tilly but nobody has told her that. And Tilly's ears seem to be a favourite target.
One thing that's noticeable is that Brook will now bring things to me - or my family. When she first arrived, a sock was a prized possession that just demanded a game of catch!!
Now, things are much different. We see her with something - frequently Paul's slippers - then just call her name and tell her to "bring". With her tail wagging off her bottom and walking forwards with a very definate twist in her body, she just "gives" when told to do so.
She's a lovely little thing.
