Alfie News

Post by AHappyAlfie » 31 Aug 2013, 10:23

Well just thought I would share a few more pics of our Alfie boy. He has just had his boosters and the Vet is very impressed. He is bang on weight for his height and very fit and healthy. Wish I could say the same but he is working on me! Just saying to Leona the other day that I couldn't imagine not having him in our life. The pic with the tree on the beach was a fun day as try as I might to distract him he actually dragged it for the whole walk. So yes he is a strong lad and a bit stubborn but how can you resist him. Will keep in touch and thanks for all the lovely comments on our last post. This is a lovely wee community on here :bravo:

Lovely update. What a handsome boy he is :love2:

I love the fact that he insisted on dragging that huge branch around with him - I'm sure many of us can relate to that :rofl:

Fabulous pictures, what a stunning look boy :love5: Alfie is gorgeous.

Your post made me laugh as our first lab was the same as Alfie the bigger the tree the more stubborn he became about carrying it on the walk :rofl: When we moved into a house with a big garden the first thing he did was go to the top where there was a dead tree still standing upright - next thing we knew he was struggling down the garden with said tree balanced in his gaping mouth with a good 6 ft of tree protruding from each side :2008: I even had time to get a photo but I can't find it at the moment. We have no idea how he managed to knock the tree down but he was a clever boy :1967:

Keep the photos coming :1951:

Lovely pictures, Alfie is so sleek and handsome :1972:
Yes, the 'tree trunk' photo gave me a chuckle, my last Lab was just the same.. she would drag something huge and cumbersome around for about an hour and then when we returned to the car she would drop it and hop in without a backward glance :1968:
Funny how some of them take the retriever part of their name so seriously!
Loving your updates, please keep them coming xx

Ah thanks all. I can't tell him what you are all saying. His head is big enough as it is. He's quite a local celeb now in the village. Everyone saying how handsome and what a lovely colour he is. In fact while queuing in local bakers a lady behind me tapped me on the shoulder and asked if I was Alfie's dad! Never met her before but she had seen out with him and been talking about him to someone who had met him on a walk. He played with a wee boy on the beach one morning whilst out with Leona and the wee lad was autistic and a ared of dogs. Within 20 mins he was throwing his ball and wanting Alfie to go to the cinema with him lol. Alfie somehow knew to be on best behaviour, sitting at his feet and being so gentle. He loves kids but Leona hadn't seen him so calm and respectful. Think he's been here before. Sorry as you can probably read I'm a bit proud of my chocy butterlugs. :1971:

Now, that 'stick' is what I call a knee cap job :1967:

How could you resist letting him have his own way, he is a stunner. :love5:

He looks like his paws are well and truly under the table - hopefully he won't take his tree trunk there too :rofl: :rofl:

Which beach are you on? The row of shops (and pub!) look familiar!

Hi Again. Thanks for the lovely words Carol and do hope to see you soon and can't thank you and everyone at the rescue for completing our wee family.

The beach is Broughty Ferry just by Dundee and glad to see you recognised the pub lol!! Us Scots have a stereotype to live up to :rofl:

Had to post this as my Alfie entered a local pet dog show in aid of Staffie rescue tayside and he got a third for best rescue dog and third for best trick! He's very proud!!
