Friday night was Hoochy the Poochy night in St Neots, when the new kid on the block came for a sleepover.Top 5 Things We Learned About Hooch in Less Than 24 Hours:
1. Hooch is very tiny
(Shar Pei X Fawn?!), especially versus his current co-Broxbourners Hugo and the Akita clan.
2. Hooch is very much a puppy dog.
At one year old Hooch is totally bewildered by life in rescue, and urgently needs a supportive home with the confidence and experience to guide this little man through the puppyhood he is still undergoing.
3. Hooch has some skills he'd like to show you!
He travels well in the car (once persuaded to get in!), takes treats ever so gently, sleeps very well alone overnight (better that way, in fact, with no exciting humans to distract him!), and walks on the lead very well for such a young boy (once the initial excitement of being out and about has passed
). He's also a great sunbather and found the last scrap of autumn sun in our garden by climbing up onto an old chair!
4. Hooch has a few things he'd like you to help him with as he matures into a grown up boy...
he'd like to learn more about where to have a wee, how to make friends calmly, how to calm down in joyous moments, which things are toys and which aren't, and how to avoid the temptation of drinking out of the fish tank. Ohhhh, Hoochy's future family. Are you in for some fun
5. Hooch is desperate to be friends.
He can be inept at expressing this and ranges from a giddy kipper to a soppy mess in quick succession (worth remembering tho that this view point is based on a tiny window of time spent with Hooch!).
Bonus point: Hooch is ridiculously cute.
