Mum's Puppy - All Grown Up!

Last year I donated one of my sock monkeys to raise money for UK German Shepherd Rescue, in honour of my mum's lovely dog Rebel who passed away in September.

Life was very empty without Rebel around, and for a while my mum vowed never to have her heart broken by a dog again. But yes, you guessed it...a few months later and a new puppy arrived to help heal her heart.

German Shepherd Puppy

Jet! Here he is aged 8 weeks after just arriving at my mums. He did lots of peeping round doorways at first, getting to know his new home and family. Isn't he the cutest? He's a black German Shepherd, with a white bib.

Anybody who's ever lost a much loved pet will appreciate how upset my mum was after Rebel passed away, it was heartbreaking for the family to see. We were just so pleased that Jet made her smile again, and to be honest mum was so busy running around after him that he kept her mind off everything.

Yesterday was Mothers Day here in the UK, and while I visited my mum I thought I'd take a few pics to show how much Jet has grown in the last 5 months.

Jet's now a very handsome young chap of 7 months old, still wearing his white bib! He's completely settled into the family, and is developing a personality all of his own. (Did you notice it's the same doorway?)

"Look into my eyes!"

He looks very dignified and stately in these pics...but I can assure you he spends most of his time charging about, no peeping around doorways any more.

He's not the leader of the pack no! That honour goes to the Grand Dame of the family, Maisie.

Maisie is mum's 13 year old Golden Retriever, and while she's an elderly lady now, she doesn't stand for any nonsense from Jet. He's definitely the underdog!

In her younger days Maisie reminded me of a canine Marilyn Monroe, all blonde and curvy with her flirty ways. These days she's happy to stay at home with her paws up and a Bonio to nibble.

Hope you've enjoyed this quick doggy update, I got so many lovely messages after I posted about the sad loss of Rebel, I thought it would be nice to let you know how the family was getting on. I know many of us have lost much loved pets, and had new ones bring joy to our hearts.

They are both lovely dogs. I'm glad that your Mom is happy again. I have gone through the loss of beloved pets too many times to count. So I know how she felt. Good luck with the puppy!
