|Now there are three of them at the door|
|Kisses for Auntie Maya|
Shadow is part Labrador, part Border Collie and is only seven months old. We hadn't planned on getting another dog, but, last Monday, Duncan received a message from a truck driver who did some work for the farm during harvest. Due to a change of circumstances, he needed to rehome his dog. He seemed like a nice guy and a responsible pet owner, but I was surprised that Duncan agreed. Duncan doesn't like male dogs because they pee on cars, hence we've never had a male animal, bar the roosters.
Maya has welcomed the pup and indulged in some play fighting with him. Gypsy, on the other hand, has got her tail in a bit of a knot over the newcomer. For the past couple of years, she has been trying to take Maya's mantle as top dog, so every advance Shadow made was met with a fierce snarl. I'm sure she'll come round eventually.
The boys love Shadow, but are a bit intimidated by his size (he's already bigger than the other dogs).
He's a lovely addition to the family.
