It's Trojan time!!!

Well I couldn't resist any longer...I just have to share the newest member of our family with you.

Meet Trojan!!

German sheperd/collie cross
Trojan...settling in nicely!!
We adopted Trojan from the R.S.P.C.A. He was rescued and hasn't has the best start in life but the is as much as I am going to say on that matter. Due to his start in life we have had a few things to work through but he is settling in really well, learning routines and simple commands and is so happy go lucky that it is hard to remember where he came from.

Since arriving home with us Shona has also been back to stay and they got in really well. Trojan like Shona is very sociable and loves company so they had great fun together and as Shona lives close by they still see each other.

Louie and Trojan...oh and my dad!!

My parents also have a dog who is a very pampered pooch by us all and Trojans introduction has been great for him making him more sociable with other animals. We have gone from initial snarling, snapping and not being able to let Louie go whilst in a room with Trojan to sheer delight and excitement when we go round and on walks together.

We are unsure how old Trojan is, the vet who first saw him said 6. We think he is much younger..maybe 3-4 but I guess we will never really know!!

He has become a much loved pet...even the cat has got used to him who initially practically had a hear attack and left home for two days. Now he thinks it's fun to attack Trojans tail although Alfie doesn't like it much when he wants to play with him....I suppose he is kind of large looming down on him,. They will sniff and rub around each other though and they are perfectly content to be petted together. I have to admit though that Alfie is boss and every so often still reminds Trojan of this by giving him a hiss or tap on the leg if he thinks Trojan is getting to boisterous in his presence.

And finally...here is Trojan and Hubby having some cuddles and playing!!

Hope you all enjoyed meeting Trojan...I'm sure you will see him again!

  1. Trojan is quite the handsome guy and I bet he feels very lucky to have such a great home. Looks like he really enjoys the play time with your husband too

    1. He certainly enjoys playtime Ann, which is nice as he had to be taught how to play.

  2. Ahhh he's gorgeous. I love the bit on the video when he suddenly realises that his mum's pointing a camera at him and comes running.

  4. Ooooo! Congratulations, Trojan is gorgeous. He looks so gentle too. Can't wait to hear more tails of him (ho ho, couldn't resist that one).
    Give him a big hug from me & a scratch behind the ear.

    1. People see this huge German shepherd running towards them and are a little unsettled but he is so cuddly and soft...his name really suits him.

    1. It's a while since we lost our last dog and I had forgotten how much I loved having one as part of the family.

  7. Hello Tanya, I wandered over from ... hmm... think it was Jo at The Good Life. Wonderful to meet Trojan and huge Kudos to you for giving him a new life and lots of love.

    All our dogs have been rescues, and Daisy would say 'hi' to your lovely boy but she did five miles round the back of Blencathra this afternoon so is far too busy now doing some serious "Zzzzzz's".

    1. Nice to meet you Bilbo...thanks for stopping by. Glad you enjoyed meeting Trojan and I'm sure him and Daisy would get on really well. He is such a sociable dog and loves to play with everybody.

      Glad you are helping the rescues too. I think it is nice when they can find them loving homes.

    1. Glad you like him Catherine. He looks just like a bear when you see him 'loping' around the garden...then when he jumps up on his hind legs he has this huge ruff enveloping his face and he looks just like a lion with a mane!!

  9. Aww how sweet! A new addition to the family <3

    Hope you have been well Tanya! Thank you for stopping by and visiting...it's always good to hear from you.

    As far as the pumpkin spiced coffee, imagine a subtle flavor of pumpkin pie to your coffee in the morning...it is very delicious and here in the states, they only make it once a year :o Which is a bummer for me because it's my fav flavor.

    I was thinking about posting a recipe for homemade pumpkin spiced coffee. So stay tuned...I hope once you try it, you'll love it too!

    Toodles,
    Tammy<3
