New Arrivals: Rusty

Last December, I mentioned Rusty, a puppy that had arrived on the dog-walking scene. Full of youthful exuberance, he is always excited to see Ollie, and beside himself with the desire to play. Unfortunately, Ollie considers himself above such childish behaviour now, so Rusty has to make do with pretending to play, while Ollie stands still and gives him an occasional warning growl.

Rusty is older now of course, though not that much bigger. He enjoyed himself in the snow when it was here.

He recently had his first trip to the groomer, and his super-soft fur is looking in top condition.

I am hoping that Ollie will soon decide that Rusty is in his gang, and one of his new best friends. But I’m not holding my breath. πŸ™‚

  1. Heβ€˜s adorable! All that bouncing energy and happy spirit just comes jumping right out of the photos. Seems like heβ€˜s learning to tone it down a bit to get Ollie to accept him after all … I hope heβ€˜ll succeed in the end.

    1. When his boisterousness calms down, I hope Ollie will be happy to walk around with him for a while, Themis. But Ollie is old for his breed, and can be a little grumpy at times. (Just like me. πŸ™‚ )
      Best wishes, Pete.
