    Thank you @Boogie, it is good to know they are not put in kennels but live a busy life. I knew someone who had a brood bitch for the Guide Dogs and one pup when it was sent to 'big school' developed a disabling skin problem, so the breeder was asked if she would like to have her back, as she would be no good as a guide dog. She had only had the dog a week or so and the skin problem cleared up, it had been due to stress. So perhaps the method of training has now changed.

    Another guide dog I used to see looked so miserable and he developed a skin problem due to stress, when he was on 'holiday' with other people, the skin cleared up. However, I have seen one very happy guide dog, the owner and dog had a good bond.

    Twiglet's trainer phoned today. She's settled really well at her boarder's and at school and loves the other dogs. Her kennel mate is called Pringle - two snacks together lol!

    Her recall is 100% and lead walking great. She's happy and cheerful and they are going to introduce the harness next week.

    I'm missing her more than you could imagine!

    Aww I feel for you, Mags. It has to be hard but happy at the same time. How is Tatze doing?

    Tatze is absolutely fine, enjoying 1~1 attention. She doesn't worry at all when they come and go. The love of her life is Zaba - and she does cry when he leaves. She off to his house for a week tonight, so she'll be a happy girlie.

    I'm off to Malaga city with six of my girlie friends, plenty of magitos all round!!

    :p:p

    And another person is given a whole new lease on life because of your selflessness. Well done, Mags and Twiglet! Hope you have a wonderful break!
