We have a new family member..........

He is boerboel cross and his name is Brutus and he knows his name so I can't change it. This is the sweetest dog you can imagine, he arrived on Saturday after the plastic worked overtime on a kennel.............but he doesn't leave our sides and sleeps on T's bedroom floor. My T has been really nervous since all the nonsense now he has a constant "pack" of dogs following him even when he goes to shower B is on guard. He loves his sisters already and the people in the flat got a dachshund cross that spends the afternoon's with T too, so he has four dogs to play with and he feels way safer. I do too, it has made a huge difference. He is sweet and has a huge voice that scares anyone coming near. I think just the sight of the big kennel outside and the dogs in the garden all day scares them off. I am hoping so anyway. Landlady hasn't done ONE thing to beef up the security so I am glad I went ahead and adopted mister Brutus and did my own thing (I did get her permission). I think it is pretty slack of her to not do anything but that's people for you hey? Now when I garden or hang out washing etc I have a big bodyguard and I've actually started enjoying my garden and house again. It is extra work and he needs training & we are having to introduce dog & cat which is going well baby steps are required though, he had never seen a cat before and Thomas wasn't very impressed but they doing OK now. This weekend all the dogs need a bath and especially the new boy! Anyway time to go to school and fetch T.

Great news Lulu. Congrats! Its all about not developing a victim mentality. Im positive the dogs will solve the problem - they serve as early warning and protection. When they bark, get into the habit of checking. Hugs!

Thank you! I love my new baby and I am NOT going to be bullied into moving until I want to move.

Congatulations on your new dog - Brutus sounds like the kind of dog you would not mess with!
Nobody has to know how sweet he is - as long as he looks big and scary!
Glad it is helping you to feel safer - it is a terrible situation to be in.
Lets hope they get the message and go away and leave you to live your life in peace.
love
Martha & Bailey xx
