Hello Sharon,

Firstly my apologies - I've still got the dog coat you lent us, I've been meaning to post it to you but time has just got away from me. I will post it at the first opportunity I get. Secondly we received the Vac Card - thank you.

Just a quick update on lovely Bones. We took him to the vet a few weeks ago who gave him a clean bill of health. He wasn't too happy about going but then again I've not known a dog that is but he behaved himself. We also had our first lesson, one on one with our local dog trainer on Saturday. Bones is a big powerful dog so we wanted some guidance and expert advice, as we are as new to it as Bones. We did about 45 minutes and we already have results. We emphasied the basic commands which Bones now understands and we have him to heel quite easily, he sits, stays and lies down but this is without distraction. We will begin work on this with a compliant dog and owner who will allow Bones to go at his own pace. We spent yesterday morning with him at a secluded beach, we had him off the lead and his was walking to heal, we then played with the seaweed and spalshed about a bit, needless to say the carpet at home is now covered in sand.

We still going slowly with our little dog Badger. She's OK with him but on her terms so we're not rushing. They spend time together but we don't leave them unsupervised - we're not worried about Bones because he seems happy to lie by her crate when she's in it but we're worried about her making a lunge for him. If you think about it Badger has had the run of the roost for over 8 years so we've got time, all the time in the world in fact.

I've got some pictures which I'll send you on another e-mail and off course I'll keep you updated. I hope all is going well with you and all the other dogs you look after, Di and I really admire people, who like you, devote their lives to the well being of animals, you, the people who help and the animals you look after are often in our thoughts.

Al the very best wishes to you,

Nick, Di, Badger & Bones Cox.

Hello Sharon,

I've just got round to posting the coat you kindly lent us when we left with Bones - Should be with you by the end of the week and thanks for lending it to us.

Bones is doing very well - he really is a soppy sod who's happy in his environment. We've just had our first holiday together - nothing to extravagant, just a static caravan on Dartmoor, plenty of walking and for Bones plenty of snoozing. We're still seeing the dog trainer, with and without other dogs and people, we have our moments but we're taking it very slowly and he's getting better all the time. Everyone who see's Bones immediatley falls in love with him. He met my daughter and her baby for the first time a few weeks ago and he acted and was very gentle, needless to say my daughter loved him.

I'll keep you updated from time to time, we regulary post on facebook so keep an eye out for him.

Thanks again for the use of the coat.

Best wishes,

Nick Cox

Just look how well our precious Bones is doing big smile

So incredibly happy to see him doing so well

An update from his new family:

I thought it as time for another update on Bones - and I've sent you
some pictures too - not sure if you've already had a couple of them,
but never mind!!!

We love having Bones around - he is such a gentleman, with a heart of gold!

I won't lie to you and say that it has been plain sailing having him
with us, but I really feel like we've turned a corner and we are all
making progress now.

We're working with a trainer & behaviourist who really understands the
bull breed of dog (she has a pack of 10 different varieties
herself!!). She is making real progress with Bones & his socialisation
skills and also giving us more confidence in handling him too! She has
been a real god-send - and she has a soft spot for Bones too (he wins
everyone over, doesn't he???!!!!).

thank you for the update. you can see from the softness of Bones' eyes how secure he now feels. Thank goodness for people who are willing to put the work in and really make a difference. And how rewarding to turn around a dog who has been on such a journey.
congratulations thumb up
