Oh Henry you do like a good drop and roll. Your such a good boy and I know you enjoy your sleepovers with Stephen but I really hope you’re forever humans come soon as you’ve been waiting too long :crossfingers.gif: :goodluck.gif: love4.gif

Henry is a brill boy and even on a very muddy common walk he continued to be ever the gentleman yesterday; letting Jack follow him (at a sensible distance), taking it slow to ensure I remained upright, did his dive roll on the grass areas (avoided the mud - clever!) and happy to move to the side to sit and have treats whilst a fellow RR patterdale goes past. Such a chilled dude who I’m very sure is loving his foster days and his family must be round the corner love4.gif

Henry had a good rest yesterday so I decided to take him down to meet blind Paul and Star. After the initial meeting growl Henry was superb and Star was her usual polite self. Henry just likes his space and is not an aggressive dog. I can see a few nerves in him around other dogs but he settles down and relaxes, eventually plodding along on a slack lead once he knows they're friendly. He really enjoyed sunny Norbury Park and is currently in his usual position on the sofa.

Bringing Henry back this morning. Gotta say he's been fantastic. Good waiting in the van when I pop in the shop or get fuel. Good in the flat when I have to pop out. Not pushy around food. Good when in the park. Does pull a bit when other dogs coming toward him but manageable. Likes his rest and definitely low maintenance. Can get excited during play but getting to understand his trigger points a bit better so easier to calm him.

His favourite position.

Popped in to see Katie and Buddy today and ended up taking Henry home for the night :dog-115.gif:
He's such a persuasive pooch I couldnt say no. Anyway; I was due to pick mum up for tea and a movie. I warned her that Henry likes his people and true to form she got the full works.

Henry does get excited when new people come in the place but he does calm down. He wouldn't leave her alone for 10 minutes then calmed down as she began to stroke him. It's best to leave his head alone at these times as it makes him more excitable and mouthy. But as you can see in the pic, he did settle. If my old mum can settle him then anyone can learn to do the same!

Shortly after he crashed on the floor and is now very asleep bravo1.gif

He's a lovely dog with an excitable moment now and again. Well worth the effort.
