Lizzie had a great time at Farnham Park on Sunday. She loves being out enjoying all the new smells and experiences. She is much more relaxed now, her tail is wagging and you can physically see that she is happy.
We went to the on-site cafe where Lizzie had special treatment and had a side plate of chicken breast.
Please can I have some chicken?
Lizzie is such a great dog and I am looking forward to taking her out again this weekend.

Lucky me had Lizzie for weekend foster. :D As soon as she entered the flat she was playful, fun loving and gentle. Lizzie loves her comfort and has her own duvet, blanket and cushion on the floor in the lounge. I like to watch her cover herself with the duvet and then plonk her head on the cushion, it is such an adorable sight to be seen. love4.gif

I actually saw Lizzie's endearing cheeky side when she wanted to play ball but didn't want to leave her comfy duvet. The little tinker let the ball roll from her mouth then looked at me and gave a few short barks for me to roll the ball back to her . . . This game lasted for quite a while and her tail did not stop wagging.

The more I spend time with Lizzie the more affectionate and trusting she becomes. She astounds me with her ability to tell you exactly what she wants and how utterly clever she is. When she needs to go out she picks up her harness from the hallway and then will lay down calmly near you and let's you finish what you are doing. If you are eating something she likes the smell of, she will gently put her head on your lap and look up at you. Bucket loads of self discipline is needed not to give into her. She is so good and as soon as you say no, she goes and lays down and won't even look at the food again. She is such a beautiful, respectful, obedient and easy-going dog.

Lizzie has definitely found her confidence and is great fun to spend time with. She makes cute excitable noises when I enter her kennel and put her harness on. Lizzie just loves her days out and being treated like a princess. We went to Farnham Park again, because it is so huge and there is always a new area to explore.
So much to see and do!
What is that noise behind me?
Yay New Friends
Where to next?
Oh wow . . .
More new friends!
I really have fallen for Lizzie even though I was determined not to get attached. It is so hard not to love her as she is amazing.

My first walk with Lizzie on Sunday.We enjoyed a walk with Cracker and his walker Kerry.Lizzie is a lovely easy girl and I can see why Tracey has fallen for her.Very pretty dog and laid back when walking.She paid Cracker no attention and both dogs had a lovely time.

Lizzie is such a ladylike girl. When I greeted her at her kennel on Saturday, she calmly stood still at the sight of her harness and waited patiently for me to put it on – something I can still make a bit of a mess of.

A dream to take out of the run, she paid no attention to her kennel mates but was keen to join her friend Pippin on an outing.

Seemingly a little anxious at first as we walked down the lane towards St Catherine’s lock, she seemed to grow in confidence as we went, and walked quite happily along the path by the water with Pippin just behind her. Stepping into the long grass to avoid two off-lead German Shepherds with their owner, she was as good as gold and only looked at them with an interested expression on her face.

During a couple of anti-clockwise laps of the island, Lizzie and Pippin impressed us (my sister Jacqui was Pippin’s companion) with their calm and steady walking in parallel. They are such good girls together.

Fortunately, it had cooled down quite a bit since earlier in the day, but we still needed a little breather after our circuits, so we had a lovely rest on the freshly mown grass by the canal and Lizzie and Pippin were very sweet, waiting patiently for treats. Lizzie discovered that my treat bag was at exactly the right level for her to bury her nose into it and, between the two of them, they cleaned us out of biscuits, so that I had to promise Lizzie some more when we got back to her run, which she took with her usual ladylike good manners. I was so happy to see that she was so much more relaxed and playful than when we had started out earlier. Thank you, Lizzie, for a lovely afternoon.

First post for us and a very happy one.
We are delighted that the beautiful Lizzie will be sharing our home and our lives from now on.
She's already settling in with her new bed and a few toys and has taken a trip around Primrose Hill.

Hopefully I've read the forum guidelines correctly and the photos will magically appear below....

I'm sorry was this your yoga mat?
It's mine now!!
So is this ball...
No, I mean it really is mine...
So is that other stringy thing, that's mine too
Thanks so much to Dianne for taking so much time out to discuss Lizzie and to Lynne for introducing us to her and explaining her needs and general temperament. She's a total sweetheart and we are looking forward to a long and happy life with her.

Lynne made us aware that Lizzie is a much loved member of the community so if anyone who has fostered or walked her wants to know how she's getting on or would like to see her, please let us know.

She looks so relaxed already. You will find Lizzie has a broad and faithful fan base so forum posting will reach us all 0093.gif

Here are Lizzie's homing pictures. Karolina saw Lizzie's picture and knew she was Bachi and her new dog!

Our special thanks to our friends in Norfolk who saved Lizzie and supported her whilst she waited for a Rescue place. Our special thanks to AJ and Billie who kept her in foster and gave her holidays and such love and everyone in Guildford who supported her whilst she waited and of late Purplepoppy who had just made Lizzie her champion dog and given her lovely days out. Lizzie now is happily in her very own home and family. -
