Florence is our new puppy, who arrived last night.
She was found in a cardboard box, along with her brothers and sisters, in a region of the South of Italy where a lot of puppies are abandoned.
Her two black brothers haven’t been adopted yet. Apparently black dogs are always the last to go.
Over the weekend she made a huge tour of Italy as different puppies from the Association were dropped off at their new homes.
Despite her long journey, she was alert and inquisitive as well as outgoing and friendly.
She’s a little unsure about our other dogs (or they are about her) but she’s beginning to knock along with Galileo. She may well be the boss!
She’s jet black, like a black bear cub, with black eyes as well.
I remarked to Clive last night: “How will I know when she closes her eyes?” But I did know!
