The pink flowers of  Euphorbia ornamental plant hybrids. People often confuses Euphorbia with cactus plants. Some plants in the euphorbia family seems very much to a cactus. But they aren't. 

Both euphorbias and cactus are succulents. ie the plants have the ability to store water in their clumsy leaves and stems. Euphorbia millii have fleshy stems with muscular leaves which pertains to retain much water in the form of white plant sap. The euphorbias are thus resistive to less water availability and relatively high temperatures. Euphorbia milliis flowers throughout the year. The summer season and higher temperature may reduce the flowering frequency. Even if the plant got dried up during severe summer, by the very next rainfall new buds may appear out again from roots.

The sap of this plant is considered venomous a little and thus the plants are not preferred to grow beside waterbodies with fishes. The roots of the plants may spread the sap inside pools when they get broken. Fishes may not seem happy with the slightly poisonous sap dissolved in water.

Garden plant, euphorbia millii propagation tips
Euphorbia millis can be grown from seeds and the stems. But seeds are not that common in these plants for the  plants are seen producing seeds only through hand pollination. We can propagate new plants from the stem cuttings itself. The stems are advised to be V cut and the cut end have to be smeared with charcoal to stop the plant sap from draining off.

The stems can be re-planted after getting separated from the mother plant within one or two days. The soil have to be kept moist and the cuttings may sprout out within one or two weeks. The new siblings are considered mature and supposed to start flowering within 16 or 18 weeks.

    With the boss. Endal and puppy EJ with Allen, trying to say  CHEESE.. 

     Allen saying about meeting Puppy EJ
    I recently received an email from our dear friend Jo Coulson, once the secretary for the Labrador club of great Britain, saying that Joy had recently had a litter of Labradors of which three were yellow boys (Labrador + yellow + boy the search criteria). I quickly arranged to have a viewing and Sandra my wife, puppy operations manager for canine partners did the early assessment and EJ maxed out on the points ....scoring very highly. On our very first visit to see the three dogs EJ was the one that settled down right along side the wheelchair as if that was where he had chosen to be. I had a real feeling of De za vue as this was just how Endal and I first met and bonded.  A period of reflexion, to consider all the effects of the changes and impact of taking on a new puppy, took place and at eight weeks old we adopted EJ Arizona (Joy named all the puppies after Royal naval warships which is most appropriate as the dad is called Anchorman and Allen had himself served in the Royal Navy for 20 years)

    Trained intelligent pet dog, Story of Endal, the famous Assistance Dog, Part 4

    The dog had the ability to asses situations and take decisions favoring his master. Endal was the apt one that Allen needed as a comrade.

    Endal, the Labrador that operates buttons

    dog operating buttons,endal opening train door for allen,cpi dogs,world famous pet dogs,service dogs helping handicapped people,trained dogs,labrador as service dog,yellow lab,amazing pet photos,helping pets,trained assistance dogs for handicapped

     Lemme give a try!, Endal operating the train door button for Allen.

     "We recently had the opportunity of trying out South West Trains’ new rolling stock that replaced the ageing slam door train,” he explains. “When the train pulled into the station there was no time to start teaching Endal how to operate the equipment. Without any prompting he just leapt up and operated the train’s push button system to open the door.”



    “His ability to learn is absolutely astounding and as well as helping with the everyday tasks of life he gave back to me the independence I thought I had lost forever. For the first time Sandra began to worry less about leaving me on my own as if there was an emergency Endal would be on hand to raise the alarm.”

    Allen and Endal’s daily routine
    Endal wakes Allen every morning, without fail,at 7 am – even when he wants a lie-in. Sometimes Allen tries to keep his eyes closed, pretending he’s asleep, but one small gesture to signify otherwise, and Endal is on the bed ! He pulls the wheelchair towards Allen’s side, using the purple cord, which hangs from the back for this purpose. Everything that needs opening in the Parton household has a ‘tug’ on it like this; purple is Endal’s favourite colour. Endal will then put up the loo seat for Allen, using his nose and, like a typical male, fails to put it down again after use ! He then helps Allen dress, by opening his underwear drawer and pulling out clean socks and pants. Although there are obvious limits on how far Endal can ‘dress’ Allen, he can master hand him clothes and even manage zips on cardigans.



    Downstairs, following Allen on his bottom, Allen will say ‘ cereal ‘ and Endal will open a floor level cupboard and nose out a packet of cereal which he hands to his master in the chair. All this helps Sandra who will be getting herself ready for work as a puppy walker at the CPI centre. During the morning, Allen will either go with Sandra to the centre to talk to other possible dog recipients or he’ll answer Endal's e-mails which average 50 to IOO every day, often as a spin-off from Endal's own website. Together, they also manage basic household tasks such as tidying up the sitting room, turning off lights, collecting the post and putting food back in the cupboard.

    For a Walk Outside
    While crossing the road, Endal will sit firmly on the pavement if a car is coming, to prevent his master from crossing. Allen's short-term memory means that he can forget to look and the first time that Endal refused to budge, Allen thought he was being difficult. Then he realised. Endal was trying to warn him that a red car had just come round the roundabout. The car had in fact stopped for the pair but another one might have carried on.

     I would like to buy these medics for Allen, hope you have them within the expiry date.
    Endal at the Shop for Allen.


    At the chemist, Allen will often wait outside in his chair while Endal goes in, wallet in his mouth, to collect Allen’s prescription. In fact, Endal is Allen's best medicine as shown when passers-by pause to admire his beautiful golden coat and permanent grin. ' He breaks the ice,' explains Allen. ' Before he came into my life, I wouldn't talk to people. But I'd have to be pretty miserable to ignore someone who likes my dog.'.



    Back for lunch and Endal will hand Allen a plate of sandwiches, which Sandra has, made him earlier. In the afternoon, it’s off to the park to play or perhaps catch up on a bit of television. If one of Allen’s legs happens to slip out of his chair, Endal will gently pick up the trousers hem in his mouth and put it back.

    Endal getting sick!
    Allen’s world was crashing down around him once again. A lame dog would be unable to fulfil his work properly and could even be taken off the CPI programme to be re-homed as a pet. Allen and Endal were in severe danger of losing each other unless they could do something about it. Determined to do something, Allen and Sandra visited several vets, all of whom agreed that strict rest was needed. However, this was difficult as Endal refused to leave Allen’s side. When he left the room, so did the dog. Going upstairs exacerbated the lameness worse ; Allen had always refused a stairlift, preferring to be independent and get up and down on his bottom. So the only option was to shut Endal in the kitchen at night in an attempt to make him rest.


    How dare you, lock me in the Kitchen?
    In the morning, however, the Partons found that Endal had jumped up and down the kitchen work surface and eaten one kilogram of rabbit food from its bag. ‘ It was as though he was doing it to attract attention and say ‘ How dare you shut me out?’ said Allen. He also had the swing bin lid round his neck, which could have been dangerous. There was only one solution to ensure strict bed rest; and that was the kennels. Allen, in floods of tears, was unable to take Endal himself so Alison, one of the CPI trainers, volunteered.


    The Uncertainty
    For two weeks, Endal had to stay in a very small cage, which limited his movement. He had one short break and that was to the vet. Meanwhile, Allen admitted that he was acting like a bear with a sore head. ‘ I was angry with everyone and behaving like a child. By the end of two weeks, Endal was still limping. The vet said that he might get better but he might not.’



    Endal came back for the afternoon but Allen confessed that he was unable to cope with the uncertainty. ‘ If he came home and then had to go again, because of his health problems, it would have destroyed me. So Heather, the CPI training manager, took Endal to her home for the night and put him back in kennels the following morning.



    Neither, however, had reckoned on Endal’s determination not to give up- or Sandra’s. Furious with her husband, this feisty 42 year old ex-nurse told him to stop being so selfish and to think of someone else instead of himself – that person, of course was Endal. She told him, in no uncertain words, that the dog needed him badly at this moment in his life but that Allen wasn’t there for him. It was the best thing she could have said. Unable to drive himself, because of his disability, Allen leapt into action. He asked Alison to collect Endal from the kennels for him and bring him home, where he belonged. Even if he ended up limping for the rest of his life, Allen pledged to himself that he would be there to take away his hurt and pain ; just as Endal would do for him.




     Endal came home, his tail wagging energetically with excitement. He and Allen were now a ‘marriage’ for better or for worse. During the next few months, Endal was put on a strict diet of additive-free meat and cereal to help his arthritis along with a gentle exercise regime and a quiet period to heal. Slowly, he has continued to improve and , although Endal has bad days like Allen, the arthritis appears to be under control.


    Allen Speaks again, Endal too! Meanwhile, miraculously, Allen’s speech was improving dramatically and his twitching had almost stopped. Indeed, to hear him now, it’s hard to believe that it was almost incomprehensible, despite five years of speech therapy. Neither Allen nor Sandra are certain how Endal achieved this although Allen thinks it was because he desperately wanted to talk back to a dog who obviously loved him so much. Even more touching, Endal talks too. A dog normally only has eight different voice patterns but Endal has twenty. According to the tone, they mean all kinds of things, ranging from ‘ I love you’ to ‘ Can’t we switch television channels?’ (His favourite programmes involve anything with animals in it.)




     Allen lifts Endal on to his knee to tickle his huge tummy and demonstrate how he ‘talks’. Endal looks up at his master adoringly and howls with pleasure. The noise is so loud that I half expect someone to know on Allen’s front door to see what’s going on. In fact, the neighbours are used to it. Allen and his dog are well known in Clanfield. Because of his poor memory, which means Allen can usually only remember things for forty-eight hours, he also forgets people’s names and faces. Before Endal came into his life, Allen was too embarrassed to go out much or talk to friends who could remember him even though he had no idea who they were. ‘ Now, they come up to talk about Endal and even if I don’t know who they are, Endal provides a talking point. They stroke and chat which helps me to socialise again.’


    Hey Sandra!, Don't part me again from Allen!
    Endal himself hates to be parted from Allen. When he and Sandra took a skiing holiday recently, Endal had to go to kennels. As Allen picked him up, he gave him a muted lick but as soon as they got home and closed the front door, he leaped up at him with slobbery kisses. ' Men like us dislike public shows of affection!' jokes Allen.


    Endal towards Children, A dog that liked Children

    Endal has a kind heart and an uncanny knack for spotting people needing special help. He is particularly good at bringing out autistic children and during a recent trip, made a little boy smile for the very first time. Just as miraculous, he met a five year old girl with cerebral palsy. Allen, scared that Endal might knock her over with an over-enthusiastic lick, asked her to sit up straight in her wheelchair instead of leaning to one side. ‘ She can’t do that on her own,’ said her mother – and then stopped in amazement. Her daughter, desperate to see this ‘miracle dog’ , had managed to ease herself into an upright position so she could cradle Endal in her arms. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

    Allen, Sandra, Children and Me- The happy Family
    Endal has also helped Allen’s marriage and the relationship with his children Liam, now I6 and Zoe, I5. ‘ They all love him even though Endal very obviously prefers me! He sleeps on my side of the bed, touching my wheelchair with his paw. And when Sandra and I sit on the sofa, watching television, he jumps up between us.’



    Sandra, an amazing woman who has put up with more than most wives would cope with, accepts this. ‘ Life will never be the same gain but thanks to Endal, Allen has a second chance – and so do we. Out of 80 seriously injured married men in the Gulf War, only eight marriages survived. Ours is one of them. The children lost their old dad but now Endal has given them a new one.’

    “When Mum and Dad got remarried it was such a fantastic day as we finally became a real family again and Liam and I finally got our Dad back,” confirms 19 year old daughter Zoe. “Before Endal arrived Dad never wanted to go out and could hardly talk. He was like a stranger to us and now that has all changed.”

    What Endal Taught me!
    “He has taught me so much about living life,” adds Allen, while Endal’s  brown eyes focus firmly on his master’s every word, “but one of the one greatest lessons is that one should never say never.”

    Endal, Life story of a Labrador, trained dog for assistance, amazing pet deeds photographed, part 3

    The story of Endal the labrador continues here. A great example for how a pet animal can influence a human life. A great dog that pulled out Allen's life from darkness to the sunshine. The character of Labradors to keep pleasing its owner is well shown by Endal and the CPI training he got to be a service dog sharpened his skills to assist and help. Dogs like these gets excited when we rewards them and tries to do more to please. Endal was not just a dog but a lovely comrade and the best man i know as in the words of Allen. Story of Endal written by Allen and Sandra turned out to be an international best seller.

    Endal, the Lab with a Job. A Dog trained to assist..
    Three months after Allen had taken Endal home, it became apparent that Endal was doing the work of a fully trained assistance dog, teaching himself to do the important tasks that enabled Allen to function and regain his independence. So it was proposed that Endal and Allen went on one week of  an intensive two-week residential training course. This would allow Endal to qualify as a fully fledged Canine Partner and wear the cherished jacket, “his badge of office”. During that time, Nina noticed a dramatic change in Endal’s behaviour. ‘ Instead of doing jobs half-heartedly, he’d leap to it! Keys, he’d say, you want me to get keys? Great. Hang on and I’ll run and get them. Before, when someone else was asking him to do it, he’d amble over to the keys and back again without any great incentive. In return, he seemed to understand how much Allen had been through. He’s an interesting combination of pushiness and sensitivity.’


    What about Signs to Words?
    Endal's most amazing skill was his ability to use his initiative and read situations quickly. This was exactly what Allen needed to help him cope with his severe injuries. Would Endal be able to help? They would soon find out when he joined the Parton household full-time in autumn I997. Still unable to speak properly, Allen also suffered from word blindness when he simply couldn’t find the words to give Endal a command. ‘ One morning, I realised I’d left my razor upstairs. I could see a picture of the razor in my head but couldn’t think of the word. So I just patted my cheeks in an attempt to understand. To my amazement, he ran up the stairs and came down with it in its leather case. ‘


    Over the ensuing months, Allen and Endal began to create their own sign language. A pat on the head means that Allen wants his cap. Instantly, Endal darts round to the back of the wheelchair where the cap is inside Allen’s bag. Hands held up mean gloves are required and Endal finds them and brings them round the front to Allen.

    Hmm chopped Tomatoes, isn't this your favourite one Allen, yea i know it is!

    Endal was soon as adept at shopping as he was around the house. Allen simply issued the appropriate instructions from his wheelchair – cereal, soup, tins of tomatoes, bread – and Endal would unfailingly nose it from the shelf and drop it into the shopping basket. He even helped to pay.


    Allen and Endal began to photographed by local newspapers, and then, as they grew in confidence, they were nominated for an award in a National competition run by Dogs Today magazine. During one photographic session, Endal and Allen went shopping at the local supermarket to show how Endal could differentiate between ‘tins’ and ‘bottles’ and nose out whatever Allen asks for on the shelves, such as a loaf of bread.

    Endal the Cash point Dog!
    As they were leaving, Allen realised he needed money from the cash machine outside.With the sunlight  shining on the glass screen , making it difficult for Allen to see, and with the money and receipt slot set far up the back of the machine, Allen was struggling. Suddnely,  without being asked, Endal jumped up to retrieve the card and money when Allen had made his transaction.

    Hey Allen, are we going a little Extravagant!, you making me draw money again and again, seems you expecting to win the lot i took for you huh..Endal making a transaction using Allen's ATM. Endal is the first dog to operate a Chip and pin Atm doing all functions.


    Newspaper photographers asked him to do it again and again so they could get their pictures.  This was the photograph that was used when Endal was voted Dog of the Millennium in the Dogs Today competition.  The result was Endal, splashed over nearly every front page. The press went wild and reporters from around the world wanted to know about this extraordinary dog.  He was filmed by crews almost daily.  People started to recognise the yellow Labrador as “Endal the Cashpoint Dog”.

    It was Endal’s uncanny ability to go the extra mile that first launched the pair into the public eye.  One day Allen was tapping his pin number into the ATM machine and struggling to retrieve the cash.  Endal decided to intervene and jumped up to reach for the card, money and receipt with his mouth. “It was amazing, as he had never been taught to do this,” marvels Allen. “There happened to be a journalist there and he wrote about what he saw in the paper and let’s just say a star was born. He even took this all a stage further by learning how to put the card into the machine too.”


    Most recently Endal, as observed by some of the biggest national newspapers in 2006, has learned how to put the Chip and Pin card into the machine and remove it after the transaction which Allen is proud to reveal makes him the first dog in the world to achieve this remarkable feat. “Being in a wheelchair can make simple everyday activities next to impossible,” he adds, “but having a thinking and problem solving dog at my side makes anything possible. When we come to a lift door Endal has already positioned himself on the button side and waits for me to direct him to the up or down button.”



    Hot news, Endal the Rescuer Lab Dog!

    But the most amazing example of Endal’s initiative happened in May 2001 when the pair were invited to a stand at Crufts.  After checking into the hotel the night before, Allen took Endal outside for a run across a green on the other side of the hotel car park. As usual his lead was clipped to the chair. Suddenly a Ford car reversed towards them at 40 mph. Endal was between Allen and the car so, instinctively, he pushed the dog out of the way. Seconds later, the car knocked the chair over and Allen blacked out. When he came round, he found Endal pulling his body over, using his teeth on his jacket, to put Allen into the recovery position. The dog then ran back for his mobile phone, which he got out of the bag, and thrust against his face. After that, he went back for his blanket from the chair and then ran up to the hotel reception, barking for help.




    The story hit the national headlines. Endal, it appeared, was the first dog  who had ever put a human into the recovery position, without being taught. Once again he was a familiar face on the television and in the news. Everyone wanted footage of this remarkable dog. But the fame came at a price. Endal had overstretched himself by jumping up at the cashpoint so many times. And the following day, he went severely lame during a fund-raising event.

    The pet story continues..

    The encounter, Allen meeting his Comrade for life, Endal the Labrador, Part 2

     No man would've got a lovely comrade like this ever. Allan and Endal, they were just waiting for something special to happen in their lives. Obviously it was their encounter . 

    You may like to see the first posting on Endal and Allen before reading this. The parts of the stories published here are from the Book,  "Endal: How One Extraordinary Dog Brought a Family Back from the Brink" written by Allen Parton and Sandra Parton, as mailed to pixelshots by Allen.

    Hey Allen,  what would you like to read, Encyclopedia?, hope this one will do. 
    Endal pcking a book from the shelf for Allen.

    The Encounter, Endal Meeting Allen for first time.

    One day, in the summer of I997, Allen's usual bus for his day centre failed to turn up. Sandra told him in no uncertain terms, that she wasn't prepared to have him moping around the house. He would have to go to the CPI centre with her. Although he didn't see it then, Fate had just stepped in. Allen's life was about to change in as almost a dramatic way as his accident. But as he sat in the training centre that morning, in his wheelchair parked in the corner of the room, refusing to speak or join in, Allen didn't realise this. Instead, he would rebuff anyone who tried to ask him a question, by telling them to talk to his wife. He felt horribly self-conscious and it was easy to see why. Not only was he unable to speak clearly but his body was continually twitching. He refused to make eye contact with anyone but was very self-conscious and uncomfortable.

    Not far away from his chair, sat a group of puppies, resting in between training sessions. One of them, happened to be Endal. ‘ He started looking at Allen and as he did so, Allen glanced back,’ said Nina who is constantly observing dogs and thinking about the applicants to see if they might fit. " Endal then looked up again and seemed to say ‘ Mmm, I quite like you’ and then Allen put his hand down to give him a pat. Immediately, Endal leaped up on Allen’s lap and gave a big slobbery grin. Allen smiled as though to say ,‘ This dog really likes me !’. Then, almost without knowing why he was doing it, Allen began to rub Endal under his jacket. It so happens that Endal LOVES being rubbed at exactly that spot. He looked up at Allen as if to say ‘ You are my man!’ "

    It was nothing short of a miracle; a dramatic turning point which both Allen and Endal had needed so badly in their lives. And it sent, says Nina, a tingle down her spine. As Allen left the centre that day, there was a certain sparkle in his eyes, which hadn't been there for a very long time. He could hardly wait until the next week when Endal was coming back to the centre with his puppy walker. Allen made sure that he was there too and over the next few weeks, Endal made a beeline for him as soon as he came in through the door. The two would sit next to each other and Endal would reach out and touch him with his paw. As Nina point out, until he met Allen, Endal hadn’t been anything special. It was the combination of his character with Allen’s that made the winning ticket. Two parts really are greater than the whole.

    Just as Endal had helped Judith through her bereavement so, it seemed that Endal wanted to now help Allen. Even so, it wouldn’t have been right for Nina to have suggested that Allen and Endal were partnered immediately. She had to wait until Allen applied for a dog himself.


    It took just one  week for the assessment procedures and paperwork to go through.' I had to fill in a form, describing my disabilities and this was the first time I had admitted there was something wrong with me,' recalls Allen. 'It was a cathartic experience, which finally gave me the hope I needed. Until I met him, I was in the depths of despair. But when he refused to leave my side in that training centre, I suddenly saw a chink of light. Endal had found me and wasn’t going to let me go. He was living proof that angels don’t just come on two legs.’

    Endal, the Angel Born to bring Allen back to Life- part 1

    Endal and Allen, were they made for each other!, their story tells us they were born to be the companions. One of the famous world renowned friendship a Dog has ever made to his Master can be exemplified with the life of Allen Parton and Endal the Labrador.

    Some postings on Allen and Endal starts here with this one. After reading the mail Allen send to pixelshots, can't help to say something about him and his beloved dog Endal to the readers. Posting with some of the photos Allen send in the mail.

    Endal Allen and Sandra, The remarriage Photo. Allen onto a new life with his beloved Wife and great friend Endal. He has defeated the illfate the war has presented him, and now a new Dad and responsible husband which might not be possible if he hadn't met the miracle, Endal.

     
    Allen Parton, A Victim of Gulf War,!

    The future was looking even more bleak for 42 year old Allen Parton. In I99I, Allen, then a weapons electronics officer in the Royal Navy, had waved goodbye 1 to his wife Sandra and their two children Liam and Zoe, age six and five, to fight in the Gulf War. As they set off, Allen and his men had been told that I5 per cent of them wouldn't come back. But like many brave servicemen, he was certain this wouldn't apply to him. After all, he'd already served in the Falklands and Northern Ireland and come out unscathed. Why should his luck run out this time ?


    But it did. Within a month of arriving, Allen’s military car was smashed up in a serious accident, which shattered both his body and mind for ever. His first memory was waking up in a British hospital six weeks later and thinking, ' Where am I ?'. His right-hand side had lost all feeling and he had lost 50 per cent of his memory. The effects were catastrophic. Allen couldn't recognise family or friends, let alone remember the names for items like 'bed'. He only knew Sandra was his wife because the nurses would say 'Your wife is here'. Even more terrifying, he couldn't recall getting married or having the children. In a flash - literally - Allen had gone from a healthy father of two to an angry, wheelchair bound invalid who couldn't talk properly and whose words spilled out of his mouth in a haphazard, disorderly fashion without making sense.


    The fear and shock made me furious,' admits Allen. 'I refused to accept I was disabled and I'm ashamed to say that I was horrible and rude to everyone.' He was also plunged into a deep, fathomless depression from which there seemed no escape. Twice, he tried to commit suicide. It was, he told himself, the only way out.


    Allen spent the next five years in hospital and rehabilitation. When he finally came home, Sandra, who had had to give up her job as a nurse to look after her husband, was at her wits’ end. Then she saw an article about the CPI in a local newspaper. Desperate to do something for herself, as well as looking after Allen, she became a puppy walker to Ferdy, a yellow Labrador. The distraction and light-relief provided by a lively puppy in the house, helped the whole family - even though Allen still found it difficult to talk and communicate.


    Endal Birth and Puppy hood, Discovered and Getting trained by the CPI.

    Heads up!, Just got an Award. The Famous and most rewarded animal- Endal, the Labrador. It can't be a mistake to say Endal as God send to bring Allen back to ordinary life. 

    Years earlier, however, when Endal was born, no one thought that this lonely little puppy was particularly special. If anything, he was something of a misfit since his parents, who were owned by a Southampton breeder, were father and daughter. Not realising that the bitch was still in season, they put her in with her father only to discover soon afterwards, that she was pregnant. Such pregnancies can fail to develop or result in sickly or ill-formed pups. Amazingly, Endal, the only puppy in the litter, seemed perfectly normal. Even so, his owners, Barry and Sue Edwards did not know what to do with him. Unable to register him because of his parentage, they considered keeping him as a pet until a month later when Canine Partners for Independence, visited to inspect another litter.


     I happened to walk into the room and saw this very pretty puppy sitting all on his own,’ recalls Nina Bondarenko, programme director for CPI. ‘ I said, ‘Hello little yellow chap, what’s the matter with you?’. Then I asked if I could put him through the aptitude tests that we set dogs, to see if they would be suitable assistants for people who need help.’


     These tests are a series of simple exercises to measure each dog's interest in people, co-operation, and flexibility. Nina started by placing Endal on his back to see if he licked rather than struggled. He did the former, which was a sign that he was adaptable and calm.. Nina also put Endal in another room, which he didn’t know so well, while she hid. The puppy sat and thought for a while and then started to search for her. This was exactly what Nina had been hoping he would do because it suggested he had initiative and wanted to be with people.. Nina also gave him a spoon and then called him to her. Instead of hanging on to the spoon, he handed it over – another good sign. On the other hand, he wasn’t very enthusiastic. He did some of these things rather half-heartedly as if he was saying ‘ Well I’ll do it if you want but it is a bit of a bore.’ Nina could also tell that he was sensitive and not the bravest dog in the universe; when she held him in the air, his body went rigid and he tucked his tail under. Nina’s instinct (which she has learned to rely on during her 30 years experience) told her that even if Endal wasn’t as keen as she hoped,  he would be right one day for someone.


    So the CPI bought him from the breeder Barry Edwards and found Judith Turner, a 52-year-old dog-owner to act as his puppy parent  or ‘foster mother’. Judith had recently lost her 12-year-old black Labrador Fennel to cancer; when the CPI rang her up, she felt ready to take on a new challenge. What she quickly realised, was that Endal whom the CPI had named after a local vet, was a one-woman dog. Although he remained aloof during training sessions at the centre, he absolutely adored Judith and would lick her all over every time he saw her - even if she'd only walked out of the room for a few seconds! Judith lost count of the number of earrings she lost as a result of Endal's enthusiastic licks, which sent them flying across the room! ‘He kept me on the straight and narrow after Fennel's death and would do absolutely anything for me . However, there was one big problem. Endal hated us leaving him alone at night and would get upset when we left him in his basket downstairs. Then, by chance, we thought of leaving a nightlight on. From that night on, he slept like a baby - he’d simply been scared of the dark! We also bought him a huge pink teddy bear to cuddle up to.’


     Endal quickly became adept at jobs such as finding keys and taking off Judith’s jacket. But his sensitive and loving personality also shone through when he was off-duty. ‘ He would play with the swallows in the field outside,’ recalls Judith. ‘ I’ve never seen anything like it. They would swoop down low and he would lift up his head to them just like a Disney cartoon. When I took him to a local village concert, he tried to out-sing the chief tenor by howling above him! He also adored the smell of port. At Christmas, we came downstairs to find he had opened a bottle of port with his teeth but left it standing upright on the carpet, without having spilt one drop. He had just wanted to sniff it one more time!’


     Yet as Endal continued to do his training at the centre with his former half-hearted attitude, Nina couldn’t help thinking there was something missing. Somehow, despite his obvious intelligence, the dog lacked dynamism and didn't seem to sparkle. It was as though he was waiting for something or someone to happen in life in order to release his full potential. Endal was also the kind of puppy who was choosy about who he bonded with. When, as part of his training, he did a three week swap with another family to help him adapt to different environments, Endal took a while to adjust. Although he did what he was told, he also closed down and withdrew into himself. Nina began to realise that she needed to find him a full-time partner whom he could really relate to, just as he had bonded with Judith. If she couldn’t find the right person, Endal would never find his full potential and for an intelligent dog, that seemed a great waste.


    There was also another added complication. Endal was showing signs of going lame. ‘ Puppies often do this, on and off, as part of their growing process while their bones knit together,’ explained Nina. ‘ It’s known as panosteitis, like growing pains in children. But it was happening too often to Endal so we had him x-rayed. The results showed that he might have osteochondritis dessicans (OCD), a fault in the elbow joint. Some dogs get better on their own accord but others get worse and have to be operated on which would mean they wouldn’t be able to work. We weren't sure with Endal. He seemed too good a dog to waste but at the same time, his future was seriously in doubt. So we decided to rest him and see what happened.'
