We finally got in touch with the breeder, and Wednesday Dec 23rd we got a little 1.7lb little ball of fluff named Wally! lol!
We had 2 puppies to choose from. We chose Wally a bit for his coloring cuz he looked so much like Tucker, their marking are almost identical, but also my Hubby was picking this puppy and was looking for 2 things:
- a puppy to hopefully bond with him since tucker is my baby and chose me to be his one and only mommy to be loyal to.
- and a little puppy with a spunky attitude that could hopefully keep up to Tucker.
When Tucker first met the puppy he wasn’t sure what he was supposed to do, he was a little bit nervous of the new little guy, he kept backing away. Wally immediately became Tuckers shadow and wanted to play. He trots along behind Tucker everywhere it is really cute.
Tucker has his little cushions and beds all over the house and Wally tries to hop in and snuggle with him, but Tucker doesn’t like bein’ all snuggly with him yet, Tucker always flees the situation and then Wally has the bed all to himself.
Tucker was a bit more needy for a bit and wanted a lot of extra love and attention from me just to make sure he was still top dog. Finally by the end of the second day Tucker started to play with Wally. He is quite patient and lets Wally get away with a lot. Then Tucker gets all excited and hyper and probably showing his dominance a bit he does his “friendly” growl and knocks Wally around.
At first Wally loves it and a keeps lunging back at Tucker for more, so Tucker steps it up a a notch and poor Wally is not so stable on his feet and even less on the lino and laminate floors. Wally gets so mad and frustrated and feels a bit threatened when Tucker gets a bit more aggressive. It is SO funny to see sucha tiny little puppy growl and bare his teeth LOL!
He stands his ground tho, and then they quickly make up and Tucker comes over and licks him as if to say “Sorry little buddy I was only playin” Some time it really does look like Tucker is giving him wrestling lessons. I think they are gonna have a few doozy of scraps in the future, they have to figure out their alpha order.
But over all Tucker is definitely calming down, he is more content to snuggle with me and just be my little love instead of ME having to be is wrestling buddy.
