How do you tell someone something so life changing?
I sat him down, made sure he was comfortable and came out with it;
"Doug, im not your real dad. And Laura, she's not your real mum"
"your parents were too young and had 6 other children to look after"
"they sold you to us"
"no" "no" "its not like that'
"your a dog"
"it happens all the time"
He barked a bit, chased his tail, wee'd in the garden and then he was happy agin.
Not so bad after all, i thought it was going to scar him for life.
We took Doug to meet his real parents; Willow and Bubba. Both of Jug breed.
I wonder if a dog knows after 6 months of being part that the dog thats just walked through the door is their son or the 2 dog's in front are their parents?
It was a great half hour spent, watching the 3 dog's run around the garden, chasing each other. it made for some great comical images.
|and the chase was on|
|He'd only been there a few minutes and already they were giving him a grilling|
|Willow loves to cool off in the water|
|Lol, what does this look like?|
|Extreme close up|
|Another grilling from his dad|
I grew up with dogs around me; German Shepherds, i'd previously never been a small dog person but having a small dog is great, you can take them anywhere and everywhere because they take up no room.
However don't go thinking that a small dog has no personality, Doug is a legend! He's randy, stubborn, intelligent, loyal, smelly; he's always passing wind, energetic, he's a real ladies man.
This actually sounds like someone i know!?
To the greatest dog ever..........Big Doug!
Now I've got to go hoover the car because he's malting and there's hair everywhere.
