The Puppy Diaries
It has been a long day but Pup has arrived. In this first picture you can see that he has no fear – he wants to know who is that handsome dog that has just appeared. Not long after this a very large dog got on the same part of the train as us and Pup was immediately stood up wagging and wanting to say hello. Of course he couldn’t since he is not yet fully inoculated but the owner took her further along the train because he said she would want to roll around with them and fuss them.
Prior to that, while we carried Pup and his brother, we were stopped for photographs by passers by and then at the station the staff all trouped in one at a time to say hello … to the pups not us!
Both boys were extremely good on their journey and we each arrived home with our small bundle of energy in tact. Dog wasn’t too certain what to do at first – he has never known how to play with dogs … he just does not read the body language! after a rest Pup had his supper – Dog got some treats and didn’t try to steal the food – and then out in the garden for a poo – he is such a good wee boy. We have just had playtime and he already comes to me when I call – obviously doesn’t yet know the command but he has bonded to me as pack Alpha and is keen to please me. He charged around and Dog was starting to understand his bit in the proceedings. Give it a day or so and they will be bonded too.
Pup asleep on my feet
This would have been a grand photo of Pup’s brother asleep beside his person … except she put her beautiful red gloves in the shot!
So here he is shortly afterwards pretending he isn’t sleepy as he falls slowly over!
And here are the two of them behaving perfectly on the train – as if they have been commuting for ever!
So two trains and for Pup two buses … pees and poos all in proper places and all settling into a new pattern … oh and Pups tail wagged all the way home. We will get the two boys together again in about a month and compare notes … in the meantime I expect there might be a few more photos of the wee Pup as he becomes the heart of our home. Right now he is fast asleep in his crate having had a little bit of a howl. And Dog? well he has reclaimed the peace of the sofa for a cuddle with me.
