So the big fella went to Edmonton last week and had supper with some of our greyt friends. They were fostering a new boy from Dubuque, Iowa. He was so smitten with this little pup that we had to bring him home!
Welcome home, Chopper!
This fella is only two years old, so still very puppyish. His racing weight was about 73, so he’ll gain some more as he settles into his retirement. He’ll likely be Apollo’s size. He’s just a bit taller than Rufus (and of course towers over Ava).
He is a real sweetie and enjoys the company of Rufus and Ava. He is still on “track” hours, so 6 a.m. is “everyone should be awake because I am” time. He has checked out all the toys and played vigorously with them all. There have been a few casualties that we’ve had to remove for safety reasons.
Poor Squeaky Chicken was garroted and I was worried about the pieces coming out.
More pics as we get to know him!
