New member of the Squad

I forget to mention, we have a new member of the fam and I have a new workout buddy. He's never going to be a distance runner and he's not a pug, I'm afraid, PP, but he is developing some serious upper body strength and has been a great companion to the convalescing Daisy dog.

Oh and his name is Hiro.

Yes, he is a Frenchie. Although it has been suggested that he is a shark in fur. And at the rate he is growing he may well become a mastiff. He is only 4 months old.

I like Frenchies , very chunky, solid dogs .

Hope Daisy is back to full recovery soon . What does she think to the new addition to the household ? xxx

She was a bit dismayed at first and still feigns a sort of maiden aunt disdain at his antics, but whenever she thinks i am not looking she cavorts with him merrily. They snuggle up in a huge bundle of black fur. I think he has given her a new lease of life.

Nah. He saw you and in all likelihood thought, " now there's a fit looking filly" 😊

(I've known a few Colonels in my time and this is EXACTLY what they'd say 😉)

I forgot to ask, what is wrong with your other dog?

Reply

Torn cruciate ligament. Over exerting herself in cross country sprints. What do they say about animals being like their owners? I had to carry her a mile and a half back to the car. the great lump.

Although that was a few month back now and she has had an operation which resolved the problem (quite common in labradors, apparently). She just has to be restrained from trying to do too much on it for a few weeks yet. (hmmm. sounds familiar)

in the meanwhile, Hiro has cherry eye, which is also a congenital rpobelm commin to his breed. Am just waiting for him to be big enough to withstand anaesthetic for him to have an op. I am thinking of paying my income directly to the vets.

But heyho. They are worth it.

Oh flippin eck! So poor old dawg on the injury bench 😯 I hope she is better soon and doing some tentative jogs with you

My next door neighbour recently rescued a rotty with a cherry eye, amongst other things, and he was fine with the op ☺
