Just caught up with this thread- so glad you have taken Shuna- I know little of dogs , but I'm the lady who came back with a new cat four years older than the cat who had recently deceased,weighing about a quarter of his weight and with about a third of his fur. Fred is now a spectacularly lovely cat.So I would always go for the dog that needed a home.

p.s. Fred is now on a diet....

wave  Well, we are home.  It all went very well until this stupid woman ( me embarassed  !!!! ) thought Shuna  would stay while we opened the boot of the car.  She ran off, thankfully towards the beach and with a lot of persuasion we got her back. She will not be off the lead for a long time methinks.  

Ben is like a 2 year old, delighted to see her and wanting to play.  I don't think his tail has stopped wagging since we came in.  Shuna is lying at my feet, having eaten her dinner and is sound asleep.  Too early to say all will be fine, but I am so glad Ben loves her already.  I, of course, am quite besotted!!!   

( Of course Ben may change his mind when he realises she is staying  big_laugh )  

Thanks everyone for all your support.  big_hug  big_hug  One of the best things I ever did was join this Forum.

It will take time but it will be worth it. I am still training Bruno and although I know we are winning sometimes it feels like a long journey.

YAY!!!!!
As far as the slip, well, Shuna will learn the rules soon enough.

You know it will take time for her to trust you and understand you are her new "pack leader", and soon enough all will be fine!
Big hug to you and Ben and "the new girl"!

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!
