Things with Rookie's pups are coming to a close now. I have so enjoyed watching them grow and turn into confident, gorgeous pups. Just so proud of them. I've been so lucky to have them raised surrounded by so much love and attention, I couldn't have asked for a better start for them. And Bea has just been the absolute perfect mum, so impressed with her. Now they're all starting to fly the nest. Sad, but all part of it. So lucky with our homes too; all are going to loving homes, but most are going to live with other LMs, and a few also going to working homes where I hope they will be valuable assets to their teams.
My little chap came home a few days ago. It was a torturous decision to make, which was the boy for me. I really fell for Bobby, big time. Broke my heart to let him go, but I decided that Bolt, aka Mr. Chilled was the best fit for us. So far I have not been disappointed; he's a real delight. Now called Drake, he is settling well into his new routine.
Rookie and Drake cuddled up on their first day together
Rookie was absolutely over the moon to meet him (video on the gallery page in the instagram feed, somewhere!) and was an utter loon for about an hour! Teak and Riki are somewhat more hesitant. Drake is a real little sweet soul. Early days still, but he is such a biddable, gentle boy, and I'm chuffed to bits with him. He is confident and playful, but thoughtful and sensitive. I am excited to see the dog he becomes!
