Jack/Richard has certainly arrived

He appeared yesterday and has settled amazingly well our little Angel certainly chose well but then she would not have shared her home with just anyone now would she. Jack/Richard has some health issues but not as many as my girly did. He has a heart murmur and is on medication for that, he only has one eye bless him, he has Monorchidism which will needs to be checked out as well as his teeth and his nobbly little wart on his nose. So he is off to see our vet tomorrow morning to get the once over and decide when he can have his toothie pegs cleaned and his wart removed. He is a real cuddle bunny and if he wants a fuss he will stuff his head under my arm to let me know. He slept on my bed last night and had one little whine before snoring the night through so all in all a very good start. Took him for a walk last night and he poops in the funnies way he kinda stands on his two front paws as he poops unfortunately he promptly dropped his back paws right in his poop but it was funny all the same, he walks well on his lead and at a fair pace too which is good ( I may even lose some weight with walkies for both of us ).

As he was named Lil Richard by the pound that originally took him in he will have to keep that name for all his paperwork and on the forum but he doesn’t answer to it unfortunately not does he answer to Jack but oddly because we were talking about the odd noises he makes and when I said he sounded like Snuffy from Sesame Street his ears pricked up so at home he is Snuffy but he will probably still blog under his alter ego of The Dread Prate Jack…………….lol. There is nothing dread about this boy at all though but I won’t let him know I have said that.

We have had a quiet day today letting him settle in some more and we have had a good walk in the pouring rain which he didn’t seem to mind at all. So now he is snuggled next to me on the couch snoring his little head off.

With Love
