Russ went to a little dog party on Sunday and had the time of his life. 4 dogs all eating doggy ice cream and playing with the squeaky toys. He has done it twice now and he never wants to leave. It’s took him almost 9 months to realise he can have a lot of fun and show how much love he has got for everyone. We forgot to put the kitchen bowl back and I just turned to see him run off with it.

Well, don't sleep, fuss your dog and he won't growl, bark and then kick you off the sofa. Does he care you were at work since 1am, honestly, he should report you to dogline! The shame!! X

It comes to something when you can’t sit down on your own sofa.Russ will let you sit down if you fuss him and if you stop you get a big sigh then a growl and a bark and then kicks you off. All day growling and kicking at you to wake you up after you have been to work since 1am is very tiring.

Thanks for the Birthday wishes! I had a fab day... it started off a bit strange as the hoomans started signing to me. Then they made me wear a ‘it’s my birthday’ bandana! I may have sulked a bit after that!I had a special breakfast and got my present! A new ball! I think I might have deafened the hoomans though. I got my own doggie cake and loads of fuss. I ended the afternoon by getting drunk! Don’t worry it was for doggies. What a day!

Hi Auntie Kate,

No I didn’t! Unfortunately it’s now being used and I’m not allowed to have it! However I did have fun ripping up the box that dad had in his boot on the way to Broadway! I made some great art with all the gloves inside! Hope you’re well. Russ Xx

Hello Everyone! Thought I’d give an update...

This weekend we went down to broadway to meet with my best friends Freddie and Bella! We had a blast! I followed Bella around everywhere! (Don’t worry Florence we are just friends) I was very well behaved apart from stealing their moms bed oh and stealing their sofa. Oh and stealing the food and keeping everyone awake at night but apart from that I was fantastic!

We found a great pet shop in broadway! I got spoilt. I got new balls and treats! Also something secret for my Birthday in a couple weeks! We had great walks and I got to see loads! It was my first stay away from home so it was very strange! I experienced new things and ate at a cafe with the hoomans. It was great!

Hope you’re all ok!

Hi Kate, nice to hear from you too! :)

I have found daddy's bin again! I found it after barking at him to take me out! He was sleeping so I made sure I woke him by taking the bin. He knew it was me as all the rubbish fell out and I left a trail... whoops

Well I have been a very busy boy! I’ve been helping with some cleaning. These hoomans left these plastic boxes around so I decided to help by chewing them. It made the process of getting rid of things a lot quicker when I got hold of them. I don’t know if they appreciated my help! I left wonderful teeth marks in everything!

I also thought I’d have some fun with Mommy’s headphones. I wanted to listen to some music but I couldn’t figure out how it worked... I left them on the ground hoping mommy wouldn’t find out I borrowed them. Unfortunately I may have left some teeth marks in them too.....

I am very good boy now as I am obeying the command ‘wait’ at the road when crossing! Unfortunately the command doesn’t work when I see a cat or squirrel. We will have to work on that hehe.

I am a fuss monster. I don’t let my sister rest. If she is in the same room the rule is to Fuss me. If I’m ignored I will bark!

We have had Russ over 6 months now and his confidence is fantastic you could say too confident. He wants fuss all the time and once he has had his late night walk you can’t shift him till lunch time the next day. He can’t be bothered to even get up for breakfast because he knows it will be still there when he gets up. He never forgets anything and chasing cats and squirrels are a hobby of his and he know where they all live in the area and looks for them when he goes out. He is a born leader and he tells us so everyday. He is always telling us what to do and wouldn’t have it any other way.

This week has been amazing!!! It all started with the hoomans making me these homemade treats. They are so nice! I shared them with my Girlfriend Florence so we posted them to Wales! Mom said the postman thought we were mad... Then later on in the week they were making doggy ice cream! I’m in heaven! I got to lick the bowls after and the jug they put the peanut butter in! Best week ever!
Stay Safe, Russ! Xx

Wow retired life is good! I’m in charge of everything and the hoomans pamper me all day long! I always get what I want! I bark when I need to go out, I bark when it’s dinner time, I bark when I want fuss and best of all I barked last night to get on the bed! The hooman was silly enough to get up so I could take her spot! She was squashed for the rest of the night! Hehe!

I’m not allowed to have daddy’s bin as now there is a door in the way when I try to get it! At least I still have the washing up bowl!

Yesterday I was laughed at! How rude! I followed daddy upstairs to have some food but I didn’t get any. I was going to go back to mommy but on my way I spotted the plastic thing the hoomans put their food packets in. Think it’s called a bin. I grabbed it and put it by the washing up bowl that I also stole in the living room! The hoomans laughed as I made a lot of noise trying to get it downstairs!

I have no idea what day it is but I love it! I got a piece of my chocolate egg! I wasn’t allowed all of it which seems unfair and they didn’t let me share Peanut the hamster’s egg! Happy Easter everyone, the Easter bunny came today and I have been looking for it as I love bunnies. I’ll let you know if I find it!

Love my hoomans they were outside for most of the day yesterday. I was trying to join in with badminton but I ended up playing with my squeaky ball instead. As the hooman said down below I stole the bowl again. Mommy thought I took into the living room but turned to look outside to see me trotting along taking it to daddy at the bottom of the garden. HeHe.

Very devastated to hear Kate’s Bobby has gone over the rainbow. Run Free and we will visit the kennels once covid has gone whoever that is.

Russ is in charge of our house barks and growls at me if I stop stroking him. Barks when it’s time to go out. Likes his biscuits dunked in coffee and even brought the kitchen bowl to me in the garden and then run off. He tells us when it’s dinner time and has the best seat on the sofa and cushions to lie on. Very clever boy who is loved very much.

Hope everyone is safe a well! Washing their paws! It’s very odd that the hoomans are here all the time but I’m very happy because I love them so much! It will be very weird when life is normal again! I get spoilt! The hoomans give me treats and when they Fuss me they can’t stop! Daddy was fussing me and he fell asleep! I barked and kicked him to wake him up! He can’t stop! Not allowed! Lubs Russ! Xx

Note from hoomans: It has been just under 3 months since we adopted Russ! How time flies! We wouldn’t be without him. He gives us so much comfort especially in times like this! He makes us laugh everyday with his funny moment. Washing up bowl in the living room all the time and toys hitting our faces every time he gets playful! Stealing the sofa and roaching! Little greyhound farts when stretching in our faces! He is funny. Ever since we have lost Barney, Russ has really helped with his love. We still miss him everyday and wish he was still here with us to meet Russ! I know he is looking down at us smiling knowing we are happy! Anyway off to severe master Russ! Thank you daybreaks and Barney for giving us the perfect Grey! Hope you all stay safe! - Russ’ Family! Xx

Apparently there is someone called Corona here. They don’t sound very nice though and everyone wants them to go away. I just want fuss! Rumour has it that hoomans will be at home more often. Especially mom and Samantha. Maybe more treats coming my way? Hope so!

Dad has tried talking to me about stealing the washing up bowl! He said it’s very kind that I want to help wash up but he would rather the bowl stayed in the kitchen! How can I do the washing up in there! It needs to be by my bed. I guess he doesn’t understand.

We had a couple visitors who I met for the first time! I was such a good hound and my hoomans are very proud of me! I got lots of Fuss and attention! Love my fuss. Even got a treat for being so good! Then after I stole the washing bowl about 10 times again! Whoops.

Hi everyone!! Russ here! Going to update you on my relaxing retirement. I still like to steal the washing up bowl. I trapped myself in the kitchen! The bowl was so big it shut the door on me. Luckily hoomans saved me but they wanted the bowl back! I told them it belongs in the living room now but they still try and take it back to the kitchen!

Hooman sister has got herself into a vets and she said she is going to practice on me! Send help.... I miss my girlfriend Florence but hopefully I’m going to see her soon!

I am getting a big collection of toys, especially squeaky balls. Samantha came home from crufts today and she came back with two balls, a squirrel toy and some treats for both me and the hamster! Bit mean they should be mine!

I’m stealing the sofa everytime a hooman gets up. I then kick all the cushions off! Hehe! I’ve also decided to take daddy’s pillow down from the bed just so my bum was comfortable!

Hope everyone is well,
Lubs Russ Xxx

Russ has certainly made himself at home since we have had him. He nudges you to move out the way when he wants to get on the sofa or wants some of the food you are eating. He still loves the sink bowl and moves it at least 3 times a day. He takes himself to bed at night and this morning went downstairs and gave a little bark to go out in the garden then went back to bed. He don’t let you forget breakfast and dinner. Russ is a fabulous addition to the family.

I got up this morning to the bowl out the kitchen again in the middle of the living room floor. I put it back 3 times yesterday and cleaned the mess up after knocking your water bowl over again getting your food bowl. Toys everywhere after we put them away and little Russ fast a sleep in the middle of the sofa.

I have a secret admirer..... I got a card through the post that had “I love you” on it with a very cute hound on the front. The hound was so beautiful it reminded me of my girlfriend Florence! I know the card is from her! There was even a dog biscuit inside! Yum! I lubs Florence so much and when she next comes I am taking her on a date to Ward End Park to chase squirrels! Hope you had a good day Florence and happy Valentine’s Day! Xxx

Also a big happy Valentine’s Day to the slaves as they do a lot for me and feed me when I go slamming my bowl all over the place at dinner time. They also put up with me stealing their seats and their washing up bowls, socks, dusters and other things! Wow, boy do I love them!

Last but not least happy Valentine’s Day to all of you at Daybreaks! Wouldn’t have found this loving home without all of you!

We have had little Russ Bucket about a month now and you would of thought he had been here years. He has taken retirement very seriously with him taking the sofa and going to bed at night when he is ready. We all get a lovely greeting and a bark when we come home and he is still into playing when you grab his lead by playing hide and seek. Fabulous boy that we all adore.

I love this game called Food Bowl Madness. Everyday after my dinner I grab my food bowl and play with it. I even take it to my bed and chuck it everywhere. Today went to the extreme where I pushed over the whole stand which means the floor is a bit wet now..... must have been a cat! I’ll get it......

As said by hooman I like bread. This is also one of my games. Snoot Shopping. Pinch all items and eat what is edible. Don’t think I’m allowed out of the room when shopping is being put away now..... Lubs Russ Xx

After I posted my update, I decided to play a game of “steal hoomans items” ! This is a game where you find any item that belong to hoomans and runs round the house with it! This will cause you and your hoomans to have a game of “catch me if you can” hehe. Today’s items were a long duster and a towel! Lubs Russ Xx

Russ had really made himself at home. For the first time last night he took himself to bed. He came downstairs with me at 1.25am before I went to work for his walk without being asked. Only thing is now when I pick up his lead he gets in his bed so I have to give him a treat to get up to go out.

Today I was cheeky apparently! Well all I did was walk into the living room and had a drink! There was a mug of liquid which is where daddy dumps his biscuits. Apparently it’s called coffee. He is always drinking it and I like what they like so I tried it! I didn’t really like it but afterwards I saw daddy run into the room like a lunatic saying my coffeeeeeeeee! HeHe. Mommy didn’t help him much and was just laughing! Lubs Russ! Xx

Note from Hooman Slaves: Russ is a lovely boy he is just so well behaved. It’s incredible. Hasn’t messed in the house and asks to go out! He even moves for you so you can get past when he is eating! He is an amazing handsome lad. So lucky to have him here with us. His Christmas foster parents clearly taught him well! Xx

Hello everyone! Today has been mad but amazing at the same time! It all started at the kennels! It was amazing! I saw Auntie Jo and Auntie Kate, love them to bits and was great to see them! Me, Florence and the gang all went in the sand run. We went mad and was running for ages! So fun and afterwards I got a great new collar! I just love these hoomans.

When we got home the slaves left me and Florence with a dog sitter! It was great, fuss all day. I even got the chance to ask Florence out on a little date!!!! It went well and I think she might be my girlfriend, well I hope so anyway! It’s been a great day and when the slaves got back they brought loads of people back! FUSS! The house was full and it was great meeting new people. I have now learnt the doorbell brings me fuss and love! Yay!

Launch day tomorrow, very excited to go and see everyone! Hope to see TheRetroShed too! What an exciting weekend! Unfortunately Florence has to leave tomorrow but I have had a great time with her. Our waggy tail competitions in the night and our musical beds. I really hope to meet up soon!

I am thinking of asking her on a date while to hoomans are out for their meal.... any tips??? I hope Florence likes me too....

On another note me and Florence have already shared games of Musical beds and had a competition of the most waggy tail. We are getting on and we are being very good! The hoomans are proud! I’m excited for the Run tomorrow with hopefully my new girlfriend and Aunite Jo with the gang. Sorry Flloyd I hope there are no hard feelings about me having a crush on Florence! Lubs Russ xx

Last night I slept very well! Today has been eventful though... It all started with going to the vets... Not a great start to the day in my opinion but oh well. They were the horrible people that made me feel pain. Nothing to worry about today though just had my vaccination. All went well and apparently I was a very good boy! The vet checked me over to see how I have recovered from the op! Again she said it has all healed amazingly well! I saw two cats there. I was giving them a good stare but nothing worryingly and didn’t go for them or get excited.

After that eventful morning we all went to Pets At Home! That was fun. While we were there I saw a spaniel who I was very good with. We got to the till and I saw this pig toy. I instantly wanted it and gave my hoomans the sad eyes so they could get it for me... for £3 they couldn’t grumble... I think the only time they will is when I play with it for about 2 hours... whoops! Russ Xx

Hello everyone! I’m apparently an ‘official rehomed dog’! Yesterday was amazing we all went to the kennels and the only thing I remember about it is sleeping and seeing cats! Was very interesting. Then as I was having the picture taken I caught interest on a bird it was so much fun, I didn’t want to leave. When I got home it got better! I was given a huge caterpillar which has now lost an antennae, whoops I might have got a bit too carried away! After that I got a doggy muffin. How exciting. All I can say is it didn’t last long....

Last night I had an excitable moment! Daddy left for work and I decided to go downstairs and take interest in the hamster! I can’t reach it but I was staring at it and moved everything from the cabinet next to it! I was soon caught out. After that I happily slept! Hehe I am being trained to leave hammy alone! I was left for an hour today! Very rude. I didn’t damage anything which was good but I dug the rug up! Hehe! When they returned I barked at them for ignoring me because they were too busy putting the shopping away. Just rude! I forgave them when they gave me a new toy. It’s a pig but sounds like a duck. Very strange. So that meant I had a mad 10 minutes taking all the toys out and annoying the hoomans with squeaks. Not long now until I meet Florence, very exciting. The good thing about our house is we have been getting a lot of squiggles recently so it very exciting! We can chase them down the garden together! See you Friday! Russ! Xx

Last night went a lot better and he quietly slept which he did before his op. He is a great boy! He has definitely got better as he has started pinching things from the kitchen... Tomorrow he will be spoilt! He will have a new toy, little doggy cake and of course an official home with love! Russ will come back tomorrow with his own story!

Thanks for your comments and I'm so glad Russ is settling in. Would have kept him for sure so he means the world to us! Poor boy must have been in pain, he slept silently through the night with Reggie, so we know he can do it.It was a pleasure to have him here with Reg and the general Crockmeister! Best wishes to Russ and family. You have a special hound there.. x

After a restless night, Russ seems a lot better. He definitely found his bark and was whining in pain all night bless him! He must have been in so much pain. He ate his breakfast today and had his medication which I think helped. His been a good boy today apart from trying to lick the private part shell we say... Definitely loves his food and follows us immediately into the kitchen. We hope tonight goes well and hopefully he will be slightly more comfortable.... We absolutely can’t wait until it’s all official in a couple days! He is one special boy! We want to thank everyone at Daybreaks and TheRetroShed and family for taking such great care of Russ during his stay at the kennels and Christmas! He has definitely learnt a lot with his experience of a home! Xx

I'm just catching up on Russ's news, its been a busy week! So very very happy for gorgeous Russ. We were only wondering about him this morning. He's such a very gorgeous and gentle boy. Wonderful news and we'll look forward to seeing him at the launch day. We miss him but so glad he's found his loving place to call home x x

A restless night for Russ think he is in a little bit of discomfort but that is understandable I would be. Keeps coming to us for sympathy.

Russ, mom told me that you were my new cousin. I can’t wait to meet you next weekend and play in the sand run! I just love squiggles so will be sure to try and sneak a spade into my bag. Looking forward to wagging tails together. Lubs Florence xxxx

Russ has come back to us now he has been neutered! His operation went well and the vets said he was a good boy! There were no teeth removed just a clean. He is very wobbly which is expected and not up to eating. Tomorrow he should be feeling a little better, bless him! Thanks for choosing us as your Slaves Russ! Xx

Ps I can’t wait until Florence and Russ meet! They are going to be very cute together and I’m sure Barney will be very happy watching on. Russ likes to change beds so I’m sure there may be a few games of musical beds! Don’t worry Florence he also has a waggy tail! Russ thinks you should also bring a spade so you can build a tunnel to ward end park! We went there the other day and I think the whole population of squirrels were there! He thinks you two should dig your way there! Xx

Picked up little Russ who is a little groggy and back at our house in 1 of his 3 beds being pampered. That’s it now is permanent home and I hope he enjoys his retirement with us.

Theretroshed and Mamamoo please reconsider this, you were if I remember rightly tempted by another girl! I am not one to encourage (really) but this sounds like the perfect match. See you or the kennels!!!

Christmas Foster Report: We are nearing the end of Russ's Christmas holiday with us and its going to tougher than you lot know to bring him back! In all honesty, if we didn't already have 2 big dogs we would take Russ in a heartbeat. What can I say? Russ is one of the most gorgeous dogs I have ever met. Very quiet, polite, gentle, loving and considering he's never been in a house before - a very quick learner. I don't know if its because he's here with Reggie and Crockett and learned from them, but he sit quietly to have his feet cleaned, toilets outside properly, beds down quietly and is just a dream of a dog. He deserves the best forever home in the world! Great with kids and other dogs. Gets a bit excitable when he sees small dogs and squirrels etc, but to be expected until he learns. Walks well on the lead too! Someone please take this dog into your heart and home - Don't overlook him at the kennel as he does sit on his bed quietly. The twice we saw him, he just sat quietly on his bed and showed no intention of getting up! He will come to you for hugs - lots of them once he gets to know you. He's simply gorgeous xxx

How lovely to hear how Russ is getting on. It can be quite daunting going into a new environment, yes he has had a couple of hiccups but sounds like he is doing well. Three dogs is very rarely more difficult than having two....just saying. Thanks so very much for fostering him over Christmas. Love Jo and the furry FIVE!!!!!! X

Russ also sounds a darling and also keeping an eye on his posts. Could be a tough decision ahead.

Day 7 fostering - Russ is such a lovely boy. He is a quick learner and has already learnt (mostly) to pee outside,- only 3 'accidents' in total, climb stairs, stand still while his paws are wiped, and not to steal food off the worktops - again, mostly.
He walks well on the lead - gets a bit excited when he sees smaller dogs but nothing worryingly so. He was great with visitors and small children over Christmas.
He sleeps in our bedroom with Reggie all night. No whining and can wait until morning for a pee.
We left all 3 dogs for 3 half hours yesterday and I think he may have got a little stressed out as he managed to bolt the front door (locking us out) of home and knocked a plate off the drainer smashing it on the floor. Whoops!
He is very loving, wants lots of cuddles and is very affectionate. We would have no hesitation in keeping him but for the fact that we have 2 dogs already.
He will make a lovely companion and pet for the right humans. We will miss him very much when it is time for him to go back to the kennels.

Russ is a lovely, loving boy who follows us around the house! Walks great on the lead, loves to lie on his bed and so far has been a lovely boy. His only issue at the moment is he's far too interested in Reggie who doesn't share his "enthusiasm" shall we say! x
