Josh goes hunting wabbits

I thought I would let you all know how "Josh" (formerly Jack/Kim) is going. Well, as you can see, I have changed his name again - this happened within two hours of coming to life with me and the rest of my menagerie. On the way home, Josh was so relaxed he fell asleep in the car and he has been making himself totally at home ever since.

Josh shows his begging trick

He and Ruby (my Yorkshire Terrier) play together, lay next to me on the couch and even sleep on the bed together - however, there are moments of a power strugger to see who gets to lay next to me, but these are very brief. He is a little devil when it comes to my two rabbits and would have a nibble at them if given the opportunity, but he does enjoy running around the yard barking at them when they are outside in their enclosure.

Here is a photo of him doing his begging trick (which he does all the time). He is adorable and I can not help rubbing his belly when he does it. These are also photo of him with his new sister, Ruby, and just of Josh enjoying his new life.

I cannot understand how he ended up at the Refuge, as however owned his has spend the time and effort in bringing him up so well. He is socialised, plays fetch, begs and is in general a very easy-going dog. But whatever the reason, Ruby and I are glad he is now a part of our lives - the rabbits, not so much!

I was also delighted to see that Josh's former friend, Frodo, has found a new loving home. It has been a truly wonderful outcome for both dogs. Congratulations to all the staff and volunteers for doing such a tremendouos job. And on beahlf of all the dogs that you have helped - past, present and future - thank you so much for caring about these animals.

Love and best wishes to you all
