After my beautiful Benji died, Midge and I needed a new friend to help us heal. Rudi is a determined little chap: he likes to play with toys that are bigger than he is and he worked out how to escape his playpen in just a few minutes. Midge is enjoying having him around, learning to play for the first time (she was rescued from a puppy farm) and working out how to be a big sister. Rudi is named for Rudolf Nureyev because his kennel name is Hermaise Lord of the Dance. He hasn't started dancing yet but has charmed the bigger puppies in our puppy class, making friends with a Dalmatian and a red Collie amongst others!
