Mine is good like that.  He won't garden but he will help with heavy things and he always hangs onto me when I'm standing on the edge of the raised beds (20mm of wood) to tie bean poles together.

He's going away on Monday to train with his ninth guide dog.  Don't know how I'm going to manage without him.  I'm going to have to do housework. :( :( :(

just stay outside - if you're not in the house to make it untidy...  ;D

Is Vincent staying with you then?
What's the new guide dog like, have you or him met him/her yet?
:dog:

It's the dogs that make it untidy - loads of hair.  Victor (not Vincent) will still live with us but just be retured.  the new dog is called Pirate.  He is a retriever x lab aged just over two years old and gorgeous.

I know its Victor (as in Meldrew!) Goodness knows where Vincent came from!
My typing fingers are sometimes in a totally different place & time to my brain, sorry!

Pirate, what a great name!   

I know just what you mean - Sheba is moulting (do GSDs ever Not moult?!) and the house is full of little bundles of fluff from her undercoat - if we had hamsters, you'd think  they'd escaped & were breeding!  ;)  :D

When we had a GSD it always amazed me that he actually had any left, there was so much on the floor.

People have been asking if Pirate has a black patch over one eye.  I say yes but as the rest of him is black, it doesn't show.   ;D

Are you looking for pure Togg or BT? My BT is due to kid any moment (her date was/is today), and I am sure with my luck there will be a male in there...She is Lochinvar breeding and the male is Guilden. I am not planning on keeping any males intact this year, so would need to know asap. But I am in the Scottish Borders.

I have 2 pure Toggs due anytime now, in kid to a registered Linray male, last year crossed them with a BS, all females, this year, probably all males! West Yorks.
