Tye came for his fourth-weekend sleep over with me and as ever he was a delight to have around. He is a gentle soul at heart with a bit of bulldog stubborness and oodles of charm.

He now travels in the front seat of the car as he doesn't settle in my boneshaker of a little car. He has no trouble with the harness clipped in the seatbelt adaptor. He loves putting his head out of the window, but only a little bit. I think any more would be a bit raucous for him. :biggrin.gif:

As I wrote previously he struggles with my stairs but they are very narrow and steep. He is quite old for an Am Bull but is still strong. One of the best things about foster time is that he really loves his walks. I will introduce him to my friend's old Staffy who has met a few fosters before. Tody is a really calm dog so I want them to meet. We know Tye has kennel buddies but it will help to see what he is like with stranger dogs.

This boy wants for so little, he never demands attention but gently asks for a head scratch or lies next to me. He lets me brush him, wipe his tear streaks and even put some nose butter on his schnoz, but that requires treats most definitely.

Here is Tye pottering around mine and enjoying the sun.

Oh, that's so nice to see Tye enjoying his weekends with you, Sarah!

I loved walking with him again yesterday after a few weeks. We went a bit further than usual, which was a nice surprise. Came across some long grass and Tye was a bit taken back, wondering when it all grew, haha, needed some reassurance, and then carried on. After a bit of play in the paddock he led me to the little stream and enjoyed getting muddy there. Missed this boy a lot!

Tye has come to stay for a few days while I am off work.

Last night he slept on the bed for the first time. He grows more affectionate and relaxed with each stay. love4.gif

Tye had a great long walk today. He gets so excited when he sees me head to the front door🙂. We walked a good hour, he got a bit tired towards the end but he loved every minute!

He doesn't walk far at the kennels so it is a pleasure to see him walk so far.

Tye is such a sweet old boy, he doesn't need much to be contented.

Well Tye has been on form walking on his foster breaks. Yesterday I met a couple of friends for their usual dog walk. He walked for 2 hours!!! He loved it, not any easy walk either - hills, wet grass, muddy paths etc. He can still pull on a walk and sometimes loses his footing, but at his age it is very impressive!

He walked with 3 dogs, A Vizla, Jackchi and a Greyhound/Saluki and 2 humans. It made for quite a unique pack...

The little Jackchi, Nelly, decided to dive-bombed us a few times. She never got too brave or close and I probably overacted but Tye was cool. He got barked at by some other on-lead dogs and not a peep out of him, while the other 3 dogs in our pack barked back! Tye showed what a well-mannered, cool dude he is. I didn't let the dogs meet as there was a bit of barking at the beginning, I think they wondered who we were tagging along on their walk! By the end, he was walking much closer and I think Nelly wanted to say hello by the end. I will walk him again with his new friends.

He was much more affectionate with me this weekend. At one point he laid on me on the sofa. He is heavier than he looks. But I was enjoying it so much I didn't move. It is like he has decided and I someone he can trust and that has been over a few weekends. In a forever home he would be utterly adorable and soppy I reckon.

He really did not want to go back to his kennel yesterday when I dropped him off. He is a cracking dog and no bother. I would home him if I didn't have so many stairs. It is not fair on him to have to go up and down stairs for a wee break. But I will keep fostering him when I can and hoping someone can give him the retirement home he deserves.

Lovely Tye. We have an arrangement, so he gives me a bark each time he’s ready for me to throw the ball.
