Despite her big journey here she's settled in super fast and is an absolute delight. I haven't met a puppy before that enjoys having her belly rubbed as much as Bambi, or one that at the age of 8 weeks old likes to offer her paw as a greeting.
She's confident, content and so very gentle, besides being completely adorable and entirely spoilt.
Rilla is getting used to Bambi; she's not the kind of dog to get jealous but she is always timid of puppies until she gets to know them. She's beginning to try to play with Bambi though, and I know that in a week's time Rilla will be completely relaxed around her, and they'll end up being good friends. In the meantime she's happy to share her bones, toys and bedroom with Bambi, and when the little pup grows up Rilla will no doubt share her sheep with her too.
Border Collies are such delightful dogs, it's lovely having two around. Bambi is similar to Rilla in so many ways, but so different at the same time. They may be from different bloodlines and be different colours but they do share lots of breed traits, and I think Rilla will enjoy having someone around who understands her peculiar ways of playing.
What did you do on the weekend?
Was yours full-on like ours or a relaxing end to the week?
I feel rather in need of a holiday after the last few hectic weekendless weeks we've had....since holidays don't happen around here, not proper ones, (try getting someone to babysit this large menagerie!), we're on a go-slow this week. Amidst the busyness, tiredness and chaos there are puppy cuddles, another clutch of newborn baby chicks to admire and there is always tea.
I hope your week is a good one!
PS Do you remember Meeting Rilla back in August 2012?
