The new boy
He is a dear little chap. Much smaller than we expected, but what he lacks in size he makes up for in personality and confidence. We took Monty with us into Milas to meet them, and I think Kathy was a little embarrassed because from the moment they met Tommy started humping Monty, and this continued in the back seat of the car, and on and off for 3 or 4 hours when we reached home. It's all perfectly normal of course. Although he was neutered last week, testosterone remains in the body for a couple of weeks. It's also a way of him trying to control Monty/
The two of them have been charging around the garden, each trying to assert their authority...Monty by nipping...and Tommy by humping. The big dogs all looked on, thoroughly bemused, and I think quite relieved at the respite from Monty nipping their legs!
They are now thoroughly exhausted and are both sleeping on my bed. So much for their own cosy beds which I doubt will get any use from now on.
Here are a few photos (I've avoided posting any of the humping activity for those of a delicate nature).
Mr A is continuing to feed the village strays every evening down near the teahouse. The numbers are increasing, as we expected. We are also feeding any others we come across when we are out and about. If you would like to help us to continue with this, a donation via the Paypal button on my sidebar, would be very much appreciated. No amount is ever too small to make a big difference. A huge thankyou to those of you have donated. It has really helped xxx
