Lettie and Rocks will share some of our sofas but them sharing Rocks’ bed is unusual, almost certainly Rocks was there first and Lettie is just being bossy. Rocks is a little nervous.
Rocks has turned out really great, from unhomable to perfectly behaved and especially around the house. But he is a bit enthusiastic and likes to run indoors to get to his bed or his sofa before anyone else is able to.
We often get asked how old Lettie is, with people assuming she is quite elderly. She is not.
Lettie has made herself very comfortable
Rocks doesn’t often get on this sofa but when he does he looks fantastic.
This dog is sooo relaxed…
Rocks is very comfortable. He’s really happy at home but is not confident when out and about.
This is Rocks (Smash Rock). He’s been away from racing for a while and has been assessed as OK to rehome, but his behaviour needs to be watched with some small dogs.
Around here, though, he’s almost perfect – very well behaved, very attentive and interactive, well house trained and gets on fantastic with Lettie. He learned stairs pretty quickly, too.
Likes to sleep in his crate, with the door open. Likes a fixed routine (including the route he walks) and gets a bit stressed when things change. Not a confident dog, and is always watching what Lettie is doing.
Often walks up to us and gives us nudge for attention.
He looks black, but in good sunlight you can see he’s actually a very dark brindle colour with a black back.
Lettie spent most of yesterday evening relaxing like this. She really will spend entire evenings lying upsidedown with her legs in the air.
She’s now very relaxed when she’s at home with us, but sometimes has issues when out visiting, often needing to be put in her safe place (usually the car works well).
