Tommy’s Diary

Here is a little message from our gorgeous foster boy Tommy telling you all about what he has been up to recently ūüôā

Tommy is looking for a very special kind of home with experience. For further info please email lynn@dogsinmind.co.uk

Hello Tommy here – Just taking a break from playing with my doggy mates which is actually when I am happiest, doggy friends are the best as they understand me and I feel so secure when I am with them.

The last few months have been a bit of a roller-coaster ride for me really and I have struggled with all the new sounds and all the new 2 legged humans that always want to touch me and speak to me in a funny language. My 2 mates Bonny & Otto have really helped me to understand that not all of these people are bad and it has been a learning for me watching how they go up to humans easily, so I have just followed them. Bonny is my girlfriend and although she was a bit bossy at first ,like most females she ‘told me what to do & it stopped me being so fearful’ , Otto just likes to play & is a bit dizzy which I love. . We have a lot of different dogs visiting my foster home which I really enjoy especially the younger ones that just want to play.

Tommy 4I will go on a lead quite easily now although I do prefer it if I have doggy friends to walk with. I used to really struggle with doorways/ gateways and I must admit I still find that this can be difficult although my foster mummy says I have really improved and just need to keep trying.

I am much happier in the sitting room now with the TV although if my foster dad has one of those loud films on I do tend to run back into the kitchen although I am getting better.

I am really happy with my foster mummy who will brush me daily, looks at my ears / teeth to make sure I get used to being handled. I really feel comfortable with her but I sometimes still struggle with my foster daddy, although he always has really tasty treats so I will often pop over to see him for some.

Tommy 2Life is getting better and I know that for a family to consider re-homing me I am going to have to relax more to fit in with the human world although I sometimes wonder if I will ever be able to completely be like my mates Bonny & Otto , I have all 4 paws crossed that one day I will be like them.

I have a dream : To live the rest of my life with a pack of doggy friends and some 2 legged friends who will love me.

Signing off now as 2 new doggy friends have just arrived for their holidays and I need to go and welcome them.

On the Animal Helpline Facebook page there is a little video of our Judge who was enjoying time out playing with his ball and would really LOVE a play area.
