    well i visited hubby on Saturday with the family it got off to a bit of a rocky start can i come home , but as there were three of us we could change the subject quickly,after a while things went well,he even stayed with us all of the visit i even managed to cut his finger nails that was a goal, Visited again on Monday was expecting the worse as when just me and the daughter go it all seems to go down hill ,but no again after the first can i come home we had another good visit.As we have dogs he always keeps on about seeing them [they can go in ]but he,s not ready for that yet so have bought him a large soft toy dog so when we go we will see what happens it will probably be he loves it or hates it as its not his dog will keep you posted

    Aw, so happy for you, and I hope he likes his cuddly dog. I'm sure when the time is right he'll love to see the real things! Good luck for your next visit.
