Posted by mythreemoggies
Have you all met Rumpy before if not then you have to meet this gorgeous dog from over the pond 🙂
Rumpy thank you from taking the time away from eating you cookies and having deep conversations with us all on the blog it is much appreciated by we three moggies meowwwwww
Wow look at your handsome self – what do you think friends? isn’t he one handsome beast 🙂
How did you come to live in your forever home?
Jen found me running dangerously close to the road one day. She stopped and asked me where I lived, but I didn’t remember and I didn’t have a tag. She tried to find my home but nobody claimed me, so I stayed with her. Personally, I think it was destiny.
How did you get the name?
Jen called me puppy at first, but when she realised I would be staying, she named me Beauregard. But soon it was apparent that I was a pain in the butt, what with all the digging of holes and capturing of wildlife, hence the name Rumpy!
You live with cats as well how do you find it and do you get on?
I get on with the cats because most were here first. I remained outdoors when I first stayed with Jen, but soon decided I wanted to be inside where the action was. Jen said that one condition of my living indoors was I got on with everyone, and I did. Now let’s be clear- the cats inside are MY cats, but cats outside aren’t, and I will chase a cat outside in a heartbeat.
what makes you a very happy dog?
I am just naturally happy! Jen says it’s the breed. We are playful, we love people, and find everything curious. Others see me as happy because I’m so darn cute!
Who is your super hero?
Super hero? Hmmmmm….. I’d say Underdog! woof! woof!
What is your favourite treat?
My favorite treat? Well everyone knows that- COOKIES!!!!!
Finally any words of wisdom for those thinking of getting a cat to live with a dog or vice versa?
Cats and dogs living together is entirely possible, but it takes some work. Ideally, dogs are socialized with cats while still pups. A dog that isn’t used to cats will see that cat as prey. It’s generally a good idea to find out how the first animal in the home reacts to the second, and be realistic about the thing. If the dog doesn’t like cats, don’t bring one in the home, because the result is eventually one of the animals will end up living outside all the time, and that’s not good.
But if you’re willing to put forth the effort to get them used to each other and have a game plan in the event things don’t work out that doesn’t include kicking one of the animals to the curb, then, by all means, go for it!
Here is the rest of Rumpy’s furry family and they can all be found at their blog here, so what are you waiting for go and say hello 🙂 xxx
