I was really looking forward to walking Rodney this morning however he didn’t want to go far. We walked (Rodney tiptoed as it was muddy) around the woods and played ball in the paddock which Rodney loves. He’s put on weight which is great, he’s just got stronger!

Rodney was eager to get out on yesterday (Friday) but knowing how reluctant he's been to walk, we went straight to the paddock and he had the best time, charging after the ball over and again, dropping it at my feet for more :dog_running-186.gif: And occasionally just giving it a good chew first lol.
Think he would have done this all day long!

We spent a happy half hour in the sunshine, playing with the ball, some grass grazing and some cuddles. This is the happy bouncy Rodney I saw when he came to stay for a few days back in February, full of energy and joy.

I tried him on a walk afterwards but he still didn't want to go. I think he's just stressed out by knowing that he's going to be surrounded by scents and sights of all the other kennel dogs walking locally. When he stayed with me, he was really keen and happy to walk as it was in another location. This lovely boy really needs a home so he can be loved and learn to trust Kiss of love.gif

Rodney and I went straight to the paddock this morning for a game of ball.
Rodney loves it and I think he would have happily played all day long. A few pics of Rodney enjoying the spring sunshine 🥰

I have not walked Rodney since my induction back in January, so it was lovely to see him and get to play with him in the paddock yesterday. He's a very gentle, sweet natured boy. He knows drop and is happy to leave the tennis ball by your feet to throw for him. He seemed to also really enjoy getting lots of fuss and attention from Emma N on return to his kennel.

We took Rodney out for the first time today, and what a well mannered boy he is.
We started with a short walk into the woods before heading into the large paddock where we had a lovely game of ball, then back out into the woodlands and out towards the common before heading back to the paddock for more playtime.

I met Rodney today for the first time. He was super excited to go our for a walk and a play. He was great at letting me pol his harness on and didn't jump up at all.

We had a play around in the paddock, he is great at fetch and will drop the ball by your feet and lay down waiting for you to throw it.

He was SO well behaved on our walk, he doesn't pull or react to much at all.

Can't wait to walk him again later this week.

We had another lovely walk with Rodney today, he behaved impeccably even when meeting a group of excitable off-lead dogs, and showed off his perfect manners when we stopped for a few treats. We finished up with playtime in the paddock which Rodney loves, his forever home can't come soon enough for such a charming and deserving dog.
