Had a lovely update from Bindi's new family today I am glad she is happy, even though looking at her picture makes me the screen has gone blurry now
Just thought I would give you a brief update. Marc says he's going to post stuff on the SLR website but I'm a bit of a luddite on the computer so i'll stick to an email.
Bindi has settled in really well. Marc and her came to meet me and the girls for a long walk on their way home. It was a good move, as she really started to relaxed the more we walked and was really calm by the time we got back to the house. The girls fell instantly in love and I'm pretty sure the feeling was mutual. She ate well and had an 8pm stroll round the village green, and settled down on one of the beds for some R&R. We had not a peep at night and seemed really jolly this morning. I took her for another long walk in the woods this morning and she walked beautifully and greeted other dogs like the lady she is. Now she's flat out asleep at my feet.
The only sign of her feeling anxious is that she follows us from room to room and doesn't yet feel comfortable to stay resting in a room without us — but I think that is very understandable, especially as she has been used to being with you and your other lovely dogs — it's quite a transition for her.
Thanks so much for all the info you sent, which was really useful, and for the food. I'm going to stick with your stuff at least for the next few days, and then I may try mixing with the Burns as I had already ordered some, but will keep close eye on her weight etc — quite happy to ditch the Burns if it's not suiting her. The nature food seems great. Thanks for the tips also on chicken wings and Cod liver oil.
She really is a lovely girly and we feel honored to have her in our family — the girls didn't want to go school this morning!
Just caught up with this thread (I've had my parents staying...) and just want to wish the gorgeous Bindi all the best in her lovely new family. As I said before, I think she's the nicest dog I've ever met! Here's to many happy years together! ;D
Hi to all those who knew and gave love to Brindie - especially her foster families. She is now called Bindi and is living the life of a princess in Hertfordshire. She loves her new family and has many doggie friends that she sees most days. She remains an incredible dog - loving, strong, loyal and so so friendly to all she meets - humans and dogs. She settled quickly but it took a couple of months we think for her to trust that she was not going to be on the move again. As we are in the country she gets two great walks a day - one on lead and one partially off where she can enjoy running free. Anyway to all those who remember her she is well and thriving and our gratitude to Southern Lurcher Rescue is as strong as ever.
