New Kid On The Block

Mister Gucci Bijou & Bouba with Michele
Mister Gucci Bijou & Bouba with Michele

Introducing Mister Gucci Bijou, the new lovable little rogue at Daktari.

He's such a little character, and has already won the hearts of all the staff and volunteers! He's still finding his place amongst the other dogs. Bullet tolerates him, as he's too old and tired to play, he just lets him run around and do his own thing. Bouba isn't so bothered by him, he was a little jealous at first but now they snuggle up together at bedtime. Candy is so jealous, and wouldn't speak to Michele for the first few days, she's slowly coming round to the idea of a new baby brother now though, and even happily snuggled with him and Bouba last night :o)

Mirabelle, now there's a story! The one dog that we thought would be happy to have a playmate, was ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIED of the tiny new addition! Whenever Mister Gucci Bijou came near her she would put her ears back, her tail between her legs, and run away as fast as she could! It was so funny to watch! She's much better now, you can see that she's still wary, but she lets the puppy play now, and even wags her tail. By this time next week they'll be the best of friends!
