Grabbed Rupert for a walk today and yes, he is scrummy
Tia was on the extender lead at first and Rupert was pulling quite strongly, but a quick "here" and he's straight back to you and rubbing his sides against your leg
Every single time
We started off with a walk along the bridleways to see how Rupert would be walking with Tia. Keen would best describe it
Then we headed to the back field for some exploring and sniffing
After a long walk around the field we went into the Rottie paddock where Rupert had a drink and more exploring
Then it was time to meet Tia properly
Hang on, what's all this about? Rupert looks like he wants to play...
And Tia was quite happy to egg him on...
And off they went
Until finally they stopped to share a refreshing drink
Before playing again
By now they were both knackered, so we headed off back towards kennels. Or so I thought...
After chasing each other around the field they'd finally had enough
No wait, there's a branch we can play with
Only one thing for it, break out the treats
Rupert loves to play. And play and play
The pair of them played so long that I took over 430 photos. They played chase, they played with a branch and they played rough, and not once did Rupert falter, even when Tia turned up the rough play a notch Rupert still loved every minute of it.
When I put Tia back in the car Rupert didn't want to leave her, so I had to carry him in to kennels, for which I was rewarded with huge facelicks
We met Barry who walking Annabel, and Rupert said hello very nicely if a little apprehensive for a fleeting moment. More facelicks as I carried him past all the barking dogs to his kennel, where his dinner was waiting and a nice cozy bed, both of which he will no doubt enjoy.
Rupert is a wonderful dog. He's still just a baby at heart, full of joy and has no place being in rescue. What a little cracker
