Luna walked with little Daisy today. She appeared happy in her company and would have loved to have got close enough for a good sniff. I always do a circuit of the grounds before we put her muzzle on as all she wants to do when she sees you is have cuddles and kisses. Such an affectionate sweet girl with so much love to give.

Today was a first time out with Luna and what an absolute treasure this Patterdale is. Small yet elegant, she was extremely easy to leash up and we took off with our walking companions Eddy and Rachel. Both dogs were extremely comfortable in each other’s company, stopping only occasionally for a sniff and a treat as they made their way around the forest loop. Luna coped admirably with a range of different challenges including runners, cyclists and Arlo the Dachshund, remaining calm and confident throughout.

Taking Luna out was a real pleasure and the hour with her and Eddy flew over. Definitely a champion little dog I’ll look forward to taking out again.

I have walked Luna several times this week and she just gets more and more affectionate. Today we decided to stay in the kennel grounds and she so enjoyed having a sniff and a snuffle without her muzzle (not needed in the grounds as there would be no off lead dogs). She munched on grass and just generally relaxed. She really is a pretty little dog with a big heart and loads of affection to give to the right person. Heart fill with love.gif]

we took luna out with unflappable teddy on sunday and luna seemed fine with teds for walking company- luna walks v well but likes to stop for regular cuddles and climb up for a bit of reassurance about how good a girl she is- once back to the kennel area and with her muzzle off she enjoyed a couple of laps around the woodland walk before an after walk sit on jans lap - luna is an improving dog

Luna was quite the patient soul upon collection today, with her providing immaculate manners whilst her harness was changed. We decided to pair her up with Stan today and the partnership worked, with both taking turn to walk at the front. Going round the forest loop, Luna generally coped well with the considerable number of dogs we came across.

Luna has a great way with people and was happy to take treats, putting her dinky paws on your leg to encourage you to drop them. Unfortunately no photos today but hopefully some on the inevitable next walk, as this bonnie little lass is a cracker.

Out with the lovely Luna today and this little pocket rocket decided to take me on a mystery tour into some woods we hadn’t been to previously. Luna was obviously on the scent of something and it turns out that it was a deer!

As usual, Luna was brilliantly behaved and extremely affectionate, stopping occasionally to rest her paws on your leg. Make no bones though - she is terrier through-and-through, as her rough and rugged exploration through thickets and tree branches shows.

Luna and Spencer had a long walk together. Both seemed very relaxed in each other’s company. Luna is such an affectionate little girl. She has to stop at regular intervals for a cuddle. The only time there was any reaction was as a horse passed. This was a few barks and then forgotten to catch up with Spencer. She is a very sweet natured girl who really to deserves a loving home.

Luna is such an affectionate sole. She so loves human contact. She loves cuddles an kisses, climbing up so she can get as close as possible to her human.she also has training and responds to sit, no and paw.
Although she is not keen on wearing her muzzle she is happy for it to be put on. Today we walked with Spencer and Buddie. She is happy to be in the company of other dogs. Not sure if likes them getting too close to her when they are behind her but neither would I. This little girl is a cuddle monkey and would make someone a loving, loyal friend.

Luna and I have been enjoying twice weekly walks on a regular basis and I am becoming more and more fond of her. She is just so very, very affectionate. Today we did the circuit through the woods with Lynda and Tigga. Now Luna absolutely adores, admires and loves Tigga! She follows him gazing adoringly at him (mind you, he is very handsome) with her tail wagging and she sometimes can't believe his antics. Today they both had a great splash about in the river. For a reactive dog she is good with the other dogs from kennels but now quite so well behaved when we meet dogs not from the kennels. This is not a problem as she is a small, dinky patterdale and easy to distract and move on. Great little girl. :crossfingers.gif: :crossfingers.gif: love4.gif
