Ufo is Daisy's son, born on April 6, 2003, in my bed. He is about three times the size of his mum, though.
Despite his good start in life, and the fact that he hasn't known any hardship, Ufo is not a cheerful boy. He seems overwhelmed and worried all the time.
All dogs smile, you know, that silly grin with floppy lips, but Ufo very, very seldom does. A very serious young man, or maybe when you are a king size softie you have to keep your distance to be taken seriously, who knows.
Ufo is madly in love with Elsie, our little black terrier with an attitude, but she is merciless. That does not help his humor either. Oh, and he is terrified of storms and hates Ideefix, an other tiny terrier.
So funny how the dogs have their sympaties and antipaties within the group, and how the groups dynamics change with every newcomer. We knew nothing about dogs when we started taking them in, but since than, we have read a lot and observed a great lot and is amazing how 'human' dogs are. Much more tolerant and community oriented than humans, though. And female friendlier, too :)
Here he is, trimmed but still overwhelmed by life. We have earlier blogged about Ufo, here.
Next week you'll meet Ufo's brother, Leo.
