Picked Barley up from Many Tears Rescue in Llanelli at 12:00 yesterday. He was brought to the UK overland from a kill shelter in Portugal along with 76 other dogs only a week ago so this last week has been very unsettling for him. Then the poor little man had to suffer a 4.1/2 hour journey home in the car with us and was sick twice. We now seem to have completely bonded in as much as he follows me everywhere, but he's very unsure with Mark at the moment. He appears to be a very intelligent little boy (so intelligent that he's managed to get through the gate twice to follow me) and has taken to his bed quite easily. Thought we might leave him in the kitchen at night but, given that I can't even go to the loo without him following me, I think he will have to come upstairs. The gate now has chicken wire and cable ties halfway up. Update after first night: He slept on his bed by my side of the bed and didn't make a peep all night. Each time he needed to pee/poo he has done it outside in the garden. No accidents at all. So far he's been a little star. Oh, and he's met our neighbours Springer spaniel called Spring and I think he's in love. Next on the agenda is a bath 'cos he's a bit stinky. Then the big test - Motorhoming! Some photos from his first night.
