Ralphie is from Casper and Blottie's litter of nine little Blenheim pups born last year. Ralphie started off with the name, "Bruce" and he is A little miracle. He is the pup that got some sort of tummy upset at around three weeks old last year, and I really thought I was going to lose him, but he never give up.
We've been meaning to write for ages to send you an update for Ralphie. He is such a wonderful companion and so much loved by all of us.
He is growing up but still definitely has puppy playfulness! He is bright, bold, active and affectionate. He loves the beach but not really a keen swimmer and he adores racing round the undergrowth in the woods or along the river.
We had him castrated at a little over 6 months after he was becoming quite territorial, humping everything and keen to escape the garden. (A good jumper like his mum!) He settled really well afterwards. He will always be on the smaller size but he has lovely proportions and adorable markings.
We are so lucky that he travels well and sleeps pretty well too. He is my shadow and adores the children too. He struggled a bit initially being left on his own when I went to work, but he settled with that. He's very bright and knows when im out or just in another room! But just recently he has started doggy day care a couple days a week which he adores (up to 5 other dogs and a big field for him to race round in!) It has given me peace of mind too.
He loves sticks over balls, loves training and games and chases cats birds and horses😱
Most of all he is just a super little dog and best friend to us all. Thanks for raising him Jane.
Best wishes to you and all the pack.

“Humans are aware of very little, it seems to me, the artificial brainy side of life, the worries and bills and the mechanisms of jobs, the doltish psychologies we've placed over our lives like a stencil. A dog keeps his life simple and unadorned.” Brad Watson, Last Days of the Dog-Men: Stories
