Sanibel Island with The Puppies ~ Part 2

Maggie & Jiggs

Recently, we had the opportunity to give a beautiful, seven month old poodle puppy a home with us.

Jiggs isn't just any ole poodle pup though. He happens to be Ollie's younger brother from a different litter.

Ollie and Jiggs come from such good breeding. Smart, sociable, and the biggest personalities that shine through in each and every one of the puppies that are bred.


Maggie & Jiggs

May they both be blessed with long, happy, healthy lives.

Yay! Cool name too, when I was a kid we had a Border Collie named Jiggs, was a very traditional herding dog name in the midwest but haven't seen it used in a long time. Beautiful photos!

I got cold chills when I saw this post. I am so happy for you and for Jigs. And what a perfect set of names....gave me a good chuckle. I remember Maggie and Jigs. Best wishes to everyone!

Shamy, it felt so right bringing Jiggs home.

Floridagirl, he is such a happy pup! Always smiling and wagging his tail.

Erin, that is so cool that you had a Jiggs when you were small!

ThreeC, you're the only one so far that has picked up on their names. :)
We still get chills when Jiggs will do something so Ollie like.

Glad to see ya'll found another dog.

It would have been easy to find another dog but how perfect to find just the right dog and a relative of Ollie's. Jiggs does resemble Ollie but doesn't yet have Ollie's smile. I'm sure he'll get it. I am so very happy for you all.

Dani said...

MS, hey you. :) Hope the day finds you in good spirits.

TFB, the timing could have been better.lol. Seems so weird. Jiggs came into our lives as if he had always been here.

Granny, Ollie had the most beautiful smile...

Going through my pictures the other day, I noticed that I have almost everyday of his short life in photos. I am so thankful I have that. :)

Oh, I am so glad for you. Jiggs won't replace Ollie in your heart, but I know that there is room for them both in there!

I hope they grow to a ripe old age, so happy to see a new addition to the family, and how special that the addition is an Ollie relative.
