The fur kids

Introducing - the fur kids of the family.

This is Podger, he is a 2yr old Pug x King Charles Cavalier ... and the cheeky dog of the family. I was most worried about how Podger would cope with the new addition to the family. He has after all, been my baby for the last few years & has been intensely spoilt. Surprisingly he has taken to Maeghan with an enormous amount of affection. He sits there and wags his tail with such enthusiasm that I think it is in danger of developing RSI.
Gemma is 6 month old Sheltie (Shetland Sheepdog). She is protective, loyal and intensely jeolous of anyone that gets attention besides herself. Gemma is going to find it the toughest out of the two dogs to adjust to the new member of the family. Mostly because she absolutely idolises Derrick & finds frustrating when he gives attention to anyone besides herself. She barks and bounces on her front two paws like crazy. Needless to say, Derrick has a new priority in his life and has been ignoring her antics. We'll gradually get her used to the new pecking order in the family.
Here they both are giving the impression that they are peaceful dogs. The reality is... they fought for 10 minutes to get prime position on the cushion in front of the heater.
