It's not been all plain sailing.....
But Winifred has now settled into our cottage and into our lives.
She remains a hefty, spatially unaware, clumsy dog
Who is surprisingly over active for a breed which has often been labelled lazy and lethargic
some of this may be connected to the fact that her attachment to me is incredibly strong, so
Where I go, she goes , but I am sure that most of her " constant need to be on the go" is a result of an over inquisitive nature
She is a watcher.. And constantly needs to be " in the loop"
She has come to adore her daily walks with the other dogs and will line up impatiently when the leads are picked up, stamping her fat feet on the mat in excited anticipation
She has now accepted Albert as one of the pack after he had whooped her arse after being cornered in the bathroom
She understands that Meg has top dog position on my knee at all times
And she likes to nip your toes when she is feeling particularly playful.
But, for the most part she will sit right in front of me. Still and alert
With her heavy brown eyes watching mine
I would pay a kings ransom to find out what
She thinks about
In that big sad bulldog head of hers
