Cyril and Marleen.
Today started grey and cloudy, it was still unpleasant after midday, so no sun breaking through like yesterday.
I slept well last night, took half of a 2 mg diazepam to relax my arms, which were painfully stiff.
Today was a quiet day, no appointments; no-one came by either, which was a shame.
The dogs were very excited when Richie came back from doing some shopping with toys and tripe for them.
It is lovely to see how happy Cyril is to get toys; we do not think he had many before.
Richie gets him toys every week and they really have helped to build up his confidence, he is much happier than he was when he was first here.
Marvellous to see him feeling so at home now and starting to be really happy and playful.
So very satisfying, to see a depressed dog like Cyril coming out of his shell and being a happy relaxed and confident little dog.
Glad we got him and gave him a second chance, especially as he was so thin and so neglected.
He looked like a pup, because he had not got enough muscles for a dog of nearly six.
Three months of extra food, exercise, play and cuddles have had a good effect; he now looks like a healthy dog.
