Basil is now 11 weeks old and has settled into his new home extremely well. It is 3 weeks since he arrived and we certainly know that Basil is here!
Basil has an amazingly affable and loving temperament. He is never slow coming forward and he has taken to the start of his obedience training with consummate ease – sitting on command and sitting – staying and coming on recall. Needless to say, he expects his reward.
Basil has just had his second lot of vaccinations together with a very thorough check over by the Vet. He passed with flying colours. Basil was “chipped” by his Breeder and is now insured through the Kennel Club. He has also been enrolled on a Pet Health Plan with the Vet.
Basil has made his mark in many ways, not least of all by his character, his stubbornness, his playfulness, his loving ways, his intelligence and his eagerness to be part of the Author’s family. We are really looking forward to spending many years with Basil, a very special Border!
Last but not least, our thanks to Basil’s Breeder who would be very proud at the progress he is making.
Basil the Border has now been with the Author and his family for one week and it feels as if he has been part of the family for ever!
As you can see from the photographs, Basil is certainly growing! He is also starting to become a little character in his own right – the words stubborn, gentle, sound, intelligent, playful and loving come to mind immediately.
Basil‘s second set of vaccinations have been booked for the 28 May when he will be 10 weeks old. The Author has already registered Basil as his new owner with the Kennel Club and also insured Basil through the Kennel Club.
Basil‘s toilet training is going very well and the Author is getting used to Basil‘s own unique request to go out into the garden. Any little mishap is entirely the Author’s fault but a recognised routine is certainly starting to take shape!
