Look who’s sleeping on my carpet! Puppy!
No; this cute little puppy Spunk isn’t mine! She belongs to my friend H. But I was lucky enough to baby sit the other day. She’s a dominant little thing, and waltzed in here as if she owned the place. Not shy at all, though only 6 weeks old.
Very interesting smells in this house! Spunk sniffs my dogs’ scents.
But where were my dogs LM and SL? Firmly shut outside with the curtains drawn! No, they wouldn’t attack her, but there was no way I was going to take any chances, with such a tiny pup in their own home. Let her grow up a bit first – and she will! Spunk is a Deerhound/Greyhound cross, so even though she doesn’t look it just yet, she will be very very tall; probably as big as LM by 4 or 5 months.
Actually, LM briefly met Spunk earlier in the day at dog class. We were in the field and there was no problem when I introduced the puppy to LM, who is quite motherly to little ones. They will soon be best friends.
In the meantime, I could play Granny, and look after the little thing while she mostly slept, before handing her back to her own Mum, to keep awake all night!
