Snapshots: Family Reunion

Sunday, March 17, 2013

This week we have, unintentionally, bumped into quite a lot of doggy family members. I think it is really amazing that our two pups are related (Scallywag is Mania's aunt, just in case you didn't know) and is probably one of the reasons they get on so well together. Adding Scally's mother and Mania's brother to the mix for a couple of walks lately has just made it so much more fun for them, and gives me the chance to introduce you all to the pack.   
Ermintrude is Scallywag's mum and Mania's grandmother. She's a lab/mastiff mix and is actually curled up on the couch next to us right now (we're babysitting her for the evening).

You guys already know Scallywag, she's been so excited to have her mum around. I've never seen her that excited or that submissive with any other dog. She definitely knows who Ermintrude is! Scally is going to be three later this year and she's a mix of lab/mastiff/staffy/lurcher.

Mania loves every other dog she meets, but she's definitely enjoyed having some big friends around to play with. She's about one and a half now. Her father is one of Scallywag's litter and her mother is a Siberian Husky (where she gets her different coloured eyes). 

And finally Scrap, he's from Mania's litter so he's still pretty young and exciteable, but he's absolutely gorgeous and seems to adore all the ladies in his family. 

Eventually I hope you get photos of the entire family, we were living with Scallywag's father and his owner for a few months last year. Then I can make some sort of dog family album!

  1. Beautiful shots & puppies! :D

  2. OMG I LOVE THIS!!! I always feel a little heart broken when I adopt a pet from someone's litter and know that they'll never see their biological family again. To have all of your doggy's family members close by is such a special gift. :D

  3. Hi! I found you through the blog hop at Pulp Sushi, and I like what I see so I thought I'd say hello. Mania is absolutely gorgeous, and she sounds like a sweetheart. I have such a soft spot for huskies. Do you find that they have good personalities?

  7. These dogs are all so beautiful! I am looking for a dog right now and I am so excited about my new friend! I live in a semi-small place, but would love a big dog like the ones you have. Maybe one day :) Thanks for sharing!
