Winston, it's funny how differently people perceive things. We, (hubby and I) looked at the pup and thought he was whipetty and light on,yet you see him as being stocky.
I suppose it's just that we are used to solid adult cattle dogs.
Barkingdog, don't know about being pack leader, Toby(sheltie) is the quiet, hidden alpha here, and he checked young Roo for getting in his face yesterday. This morning Roo was being very submissive, just in case. LOL.
Angeldogs, I'm pleased he is here, that's for sure, the waiting got really tedious. I'd still have the odd moment where I'd wonder if I was doing the right thing, getting him, and I don't know, maybe DD knows what I mean, but it is worth it once they finally arrive.
