Default Twiglet - Guide Dog puppy

Twiglet arrived today, she is a tiny little sweetheart. Seven weeks old and weighing just 3Kg. She has had several energetic plays with Tatze, several sleeps, two meals and 80% of her wees and poos outside. She is 50% Lab and 50% Golden Retriever, but she looks all Lab to me! Her Dad is Called Eddie and her Mum Vicky. She was named by Text Santa vote - an ITV fundraising telethon. Two of her brothers, Barnaby and Rossi, are being puppy walked near me so they will be able to have lots of play dates and will meet at puppy class too.

Tatze adores her already and never takes her eyes off her.

Twiglet has chosen her favourite teddy and pulls it around to sleep on

The biggest majority of guide dogs are Lab/Gr - they tend to inherit the enthusiasm of the Labs and the stubborn fearlessness of the GRs, ideal for dogs which need to enjoy their work, but also need to be able to say 'no' to their owners in some circumstances. (If the owner says 'forward' and it's not safe, the dog is trained to refuse to go)

Twiglet is already showing her independent side - exploring happily even when no people/dogs are with her!!

Here she is, about to pounce! lol
