New Boy....

The new puppy was coming to the river this morning.

We'd been hearing about him for weeks, he was taken from his dog family at 5 weeks...
(SHE's shuddering)
...we had to wait for all his needles to take effect, before he could be introduced to us.
I, Roxy, woke up with a Very Sore Paw.
Here's evidence, though it was taken later in the day.

I wasn't allowed to go.
SHE says it was from chasing Coco like a maniac  the day before.
Bella stayed home with me, because she just likes to
stand in the river and get wet and muddy.
Only Dui went  and he's more of a maniac than I am!

Well, here he is.
 His name is Tiger.  He is Pi's new brother.
 He's a Kelpie-Koolie cross.
(Both being sheep dogs.)

Dui may have been allowed to go, but he
became too excited.

And had to go on the dreaded chain for awhile.

Unfortunately, My wonky foot is still sore and I'm still limping, so it may be another week
before Bella and I get to meet him.
Hope your weekend is better than mine....sigh.


  1. Oh wow, Tiger is quite spectacular.
    But Roxy, I so sympathise with your sore paw, and do hope it gets better soon.
    Toodle pip!

  2. Roxy sweetheart..It is I, Madi's mom, here to offer you sympathy and mom kisses. You see I can get a wonky ankle sometimes for no reason too. It all started years ago when I was walking sideways by the guest bed (close to the wall) to make it up. I was so glad there was a wall there cause otherwise I would have fallen. The doc told me there is a long tendon running down side of the leg to the angle kinda like a rubber band it got out of place. Anyway I understand and send you hugs. My hubby keeps telling me making the bed up is bad for your health...maybe he has a point.
    Love and kisses

  3. Tiger is one handsome pup but what a bummer that you and Bella had to stay at home, Roxy. I hope your sore paw feels better soon!

  4. Taken from his family at only five weeks old? Big mistake, dogs learn a lot from their mom especially after 5 weeks. We birds never learn so it's OK for us.

  5. So sad that he was taken so young. But he sure is a cutie pie with very striking markings.

  6. Tiger is a handsome looking fellow. The more we see Kelpies the more we think Hailey has some kelpie in her! We shudder at the pup being taken at 5 weeks, Hailey was taken at 3 . . . . sigh!
    Roxy, we hope your paw feels better soon.

  7. Oh Tiger is a handsome fella! Too bad he could not spend more time with his doggie mom. We hope everyone's parts get better fast!

    Happy Earth Day!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  8. He's a cute little guy! We hope your paw gets better!

  9. Oh Roxy, we are so sorry your paw is sore. Best to rest it and let it heal well. Then meet that adorable puppy - oh, those ears:)

    Happy Earth Day.

  10. Tiger is a handsome boy. I am sorry you did not all get to meet him. I hope you are all feeling better soon.

  11. Tiger looks like a very cute puppy! I bet you're going to be great friends.

  12. That Tiger is a cutie. We hope your paw feels better soon and are sending you lots of POTP.

  13. Tiger looks like a very handsome boy :) Milo & Jet

  14. What an adorable pup!That must be one high energy guy! Sort of a border collie on steroids!

  15. What a speckled sweet face. Pray Roxie is better and limping has stopped. Bella my little sponge so sad you had to stay an keep Roxie company. I am sure the river is higher without you soaking up the water.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot

  16. We too were shuddering - five weeks?! - what were they thinking? Here's hoping all goes well. Tiger and in "The Life of Pi"? That'd be the tiger reference?

  17. That was nice of Bella to be "volunteered" to stay home with you - I hope that paw is feeling better, maybe your special treat today helped?
