Lovely to see Roco looking so relaxed and to know that he is so happy in his foster home with Sue - thank you. I am wondering if he still wants cuddles all the time!

Roco and me just having a little cuddle. Making sure I pick him up a least once a day to keep him used to being handled.

Roco still needs some reassurance on walks but not so much coming back for cuddles but putting on the four foot lock and needing some words of reassurance. With social distancing it’s very hard to socialise him which is a problem he seems to be afraid of some dogs and growls or barks at them. He needs a lot of supervision and I’m going to work with him now on some obedience in particular ‘heel’, ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘paw’,recall and a new one for him that I’ve made up ‘with me’ to try and help him in stressful situations.

That all sounds brilliant Sue - yes social distancing must be making life that bit harder but he looks so happy with you and he has such a lovely nature that I'm sure it will all work out. Thank you.

Roco relaxing in the hall. This is big for Roco. When he arrived here he hated this floor. He is still afraid of the vacuum cleaner and not too happy with brooms

Roco has found another place to relax 😃

He had a nice walk with Frodo today and also a separate walk with Dexter for the first time, all good just needed a lot of reassurance. He was not so relaxed with Pluto (a very docile golden retriever) meeting for the first time, but sat happily near him while I chatted to his owner.

Had to take a selfie with Roco in Home Park! I took a similar one with Kipp earlier this year. The trees look a little different. Roco is now exhausted and relaxing (again) on the sofa. Roco has on his bright new harness and collar. It’s a soft mesh harness, the other harness was rubbing his tummy but I’ve just seen he’s a bit sore from this harness too. I’ll have to think again.
