Time for a quick update, because I doubt I’ll have much time for blogging over the festive weekend. An update on Tali, who’s been with us 10 days already and appears to be settling in. She’s still a tiny little thing, weighing in at 4.8kg now and not yet 10 weeks old, but she is gaining in confidence, and able to run about properly, without falling over her own feet.
She has a natural inclination to “sit”, so I’m hoping to make the most of that when it comes to canine education.
This third photo very poor quality, but to show her profile, and how her head is starting to look more like a Flat-coated retriever.
Pleased to say, Tali and Ziva have already made friends!
It took Ziva literally only days to get used to having a pup around (and yet Ziva never had a chance to get used to Gibbs) and the two of them really do seem to play together. The other cats totally disapprove of a new dog in the house though. Le Bleu walks past, hissing and whacking if Tali dares comes too close. Abby & Ducky don’t even come downstairs. Silly really because it would be so much easier to make friends with a tiny pup, rather than wait until Tali becomes a much bigger, boisterous pup. I don’t think the cats realise how much Tali is going to grow over the coming weeks/months.
