Jeff is Poppy’s litter brother. He was originally sold to someone who wanted to show and breed from him, but after 6 months it became obvious that he was only born with one testicle, so he was returned.
Lucky little Jeff! His breeder saw from the post I wrote that I was thinking of getting bored Poppy a little sister, so we talked. A day later I took the day off to drive to get him. Mrs Popples came along for the ride.
He’s fitting in beautifully and enjoying the extra attention from being one of many to one of only a few. He loves cuddles. In fact, he’s sitting at my feet as I’m typing this, just within easy reach.
They’ve been playing all morning. Poppy grabs a toy…
… and then it’s ON!
Bertie hasn’t been himself since Jeff arrived. He’s actually taking an interest in things. He was awake for 7 straight hours last night!
Poppy and Jeff are his great-grandchildren. Unfortunately, being a stud dog, Bertie’s interest in Jeff isn’t exactly grandfatherly. Jeff still smells of his breeder’s house, which is where all of Bertie’s…. um…. shenanigans have taken place.
While they play he’s been sneaking around to Jeff’s back end and attempting to seduce him. When the pups race off, he’s been following.
He hasn’t had so much exercise in ages.
This morning he was calmer and in a few more hours when Jeff smells of this place, Bertie’ll calm down totally.
So far this morning there’s been lots of this.
I think it’s safe to say that Poppy isn’t bored any more. 🙂
