Meet Little Jeff, named after a wonderful man who over the last 12 years has helped us out extensively with jobs, repairs, renovations and extensions to our home. He built up a wonderful relationship with our beloved spaniel Louis, as did we with him. Louis very sadly succumbed to Kidney disease in August 2019 and it was Jeff who was there for us, and tasked with his hardest job of all, digging and laying him in his final resting place. In our opinion what better tribute could we give but to Christen little chops “Jeff” or “Little Jeff”as he gets called or Jeffy, Jeff Jeff, Jeffy J and Jeffington, and other derivations when we discover another kitchen stool gnawed on!!!
Watching the two of them meet for the first time had us all going a bit damp eyed but it was beautiful to watch this gentle man hold our new puppy. Already LJ can hardly contain himself when Big Jeff comes visiting.
I have always been a firm believer that dogs are sent to you, and despite our decision to not look until the Spring, Little Jeff joined us on January 24th 2020 a few months ahead of schedule. Once through the threshold we expected some anxiety about this new strange environment – but in true Little Jeff style he hit the ground running and didn’t look back! – He just landed and that as they say, was that. With one of the wettest winters I can remember, taking an 8 week old puppy out for a wee at 5.20am in the wind and rain was not a delightful experience but we continue to get through it.
Hopefully our new boy will join us on lots of new adventures and will be featuring in numerous photographs! He is already developing his best side and practising his posing!
