GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
Hello there to all my blogging friends...(and lurkers too :) )
A new kind of energy has swept through our home. It's a welcome and happy energy!
Toby's life is whole again, my family are smiling at the antics of the sweet hooligan and the new little "sunbeam". Aunt Tam, although a little confused, seems to welcome her reprieve from the demands of the energetic TOBY.
An added blessing is that he's met his match in our new little "Sunbeam" LEXI.
How would I describe this little Golden Sunbeam?
Well, she's very pretty, a soft personality with a lot to give, cute and cuddly, gentle when she needs to be, playful, energetic, a sweet nature, confident, adventurous, inquisitive, quick to learn (and wants to learn!), intelligent, naughty at times (delightfully naughty) and quick to overcome any initial nervousness of new situations. We have landed ourselves a treasure.
The developing bond between Toby and the puppy is something to marvel at. He's never far from her side, nor mine. He will gently discipline her when needed, but will also resort to sharing his Kong with her.
Can you imagine a 39kg dog gently mouthing a 5kg pup, and passing his prized Kong to this new little feisty cuddle-bun. Half the time they are both on their backs playing.
This match is made in heaven...and was meant to be.
Early this morning, they had a romp on the 'collective' dog's mattress on the floor of our bedroom. Tammy watched thoughtfully from a reasonable distance. I sat down with her, rubbed her chest - gently reassuring her of my love and care, and her unquestionable status.
Dogs are amazing to watch. We can learn so much from their behaviour.
I find myself lost in wonder while I watch them.
So there you have it:
All's well in the 'Maxdog' household.
I pray that all is well in yours too.
