What a deference 24 hours and some kind(and medical) treatment can do
I bet he feels so much better bless him
He certainly looks a different dog to the way he was yesterday - Mummy Chook's, (& of course Anil's), ministrations have worked wonders with him.
It never ceases to amaze me how resilient these wonderful creatures are, & how well & how quickly they respond to being properly cared for & loved. As I said to Jenny yesterday, I hope that the perpetrator(s) of Alfie's previous suffering endure a slow & painful death.
This lovely lad is definitely going to make some lucky person & their dog(s) a wonderful companion, he's a super chap.

I was just going to say he had the look of Dodger about him, gorgeous or soon will be with your TLC. Well done the the riding school for helping him out and getting in touch with the best place for him.
Another totally quiet night til 8.10 a.m. Came down to a very waggy Alfie. He has been completely clean in the house. Did the biggest wee when he went out, and then came up to bed with us all for our Saturday biscuits and tea. Alfie couldn't get on the bed as there just isn't any space so was happy to get onto the dog camp bed next to us.
He is an amazing dog. So gentle, so loving and so submissive and very respectful of Miss Elly. She in turn has accepted him into the pack quicker than any of the other foster dogs.
Every day I ask myself what he reminds me of and today we have decided that he reminds us of a cross between Roadrunner and a Peruvian goat.
He is an absolute sweetheart. Very comical.
I have come downstairs and left Michael to laze with the girls and Tag and Milo, and Alfie has parked himself on the sofa next to Elly.
He's still quite pink raw, but at least he is not so hot on the sore areas. He itches a little, but it must be 1000 percent more comfortable. The video yesterday didn't show just how sore this little chap is. Here he is snuggled up on the sofa.
A dog is a gift in life. Love and protect it. _________________
