We have a new little dutch girl we call her Poppy, but her real name is Peaches of the Morning Valley.
She is 9 weeks old and just lovely, very sweet and calm. She is a confident little girl. Until recently, Effie has been a little stand-offish with her, not unfriendly, but not friendly either. Jasper thought that an alien had landed and has been hiding in his bed. He has even gone as far as to take his food in there with him to escape her.
But she is persistent, and she has appealed to his inner child ( not that far from the surface in any Red Setter) and now they are playing, mainly her chasing him around the house and garden. Jasper has been a real sweetie and a gentle loon with her, he has been so careful not to hurt her. Even, Effie has softened and has been playing with her, albeit on her own terms – she’s got a good excuse for taking it easy – she will have her own puppies to deal with by the end of the week.
