Bramble is a little shadow

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 30 April 2013 | 9 Comments


We adopted Miss Bramble on Sunday and at the time, we weren’t sure if she would be keeping the name or not. I just wanted to confirm that we will be keeping the name Bramble as she is so responsive to it, it would be wrong to change it.


We’ve been having fun getting to know each other – she has been my little shadow while I’m at home. She slept well on Sunday and Monday nights in her new bed and apart from a couple of accidents, has been going to the toilet outside. She’s been exploring her backyard and playing with her news toys. She’ll be starting basic training in a couple of weeks but has been responding well to all of us at home (and has coped very well having some visitors). I’ve yet to hear her bark but there was one instance where she was very vocal in letting my mum know someone was coming to the door (and calmed down immediately once she knew it was our neighbour).

We’ve yet to leave her completely alone and while this won’t be a common occurrence, we’re putting measures in place to ensure that it doesn’t seem to be the end of the world.

I’ll be keeping in touch and letting you know of her progress. It’s very positive thus far – she’s such a sweetheart!

  • I saw the post on face book of Bramble at home on her first night. She looked beautiful, and oh so happy, it was a delightful to see.

    This sweet little girl is so responsive and eager to please, I think she will have a wonderful time at dog training.

    Bramble is real gem and true find.

  • Bramble was a favourite of mine, and a lovely dog - enjoyed our off-site "lunch dates", so good in the car, responsive and wanting to do the right thing. Fantastic that she now has a loving home, especially after waiting quite a while.

  • that's fabulous to hear Nicole, thank you for letting us know how she's going. it's also great to hear how much care you are taking with how she deals with new things. she's a little doll with a lot of personality.
