Wow, they certainly are. Are they from the same breeder?

They are gorgeous and even more special being father and son. I can't wait for my Jess to grow up and have her beautiful coat like that.

One of the things I was nervous about before bringing Jovi home was seeing if Bertie would bond with him. Especially with Jacks on the decline and Bertie being more of a stud dog strutting his stuff around other boys than Jacks ever was and assuming Jovi would be more like Bertie.

I've heard horror stories from other people with their male dogs not meshing and fighting it out. o_O Those were dogs closer in age than Bertie and Jovi, but it still went through my head that this could be very hard.

Maybe I didn't really think that Bertie would try "fighting" or going after the pup, but I FULLY anticipated him losing his brains in the first 1-2 weeks. It goes back to when we had our Sammy and brought home a puppy (Danny). And Sammy went off his food, wouldn't sleep, and was completely OBSESSED with the pup. It was nonstop wild eyes and panting. A lot of it was this was Sammy's house and uh there was a completely strange and fascinating new thing in the house.

Brought Jovi home and sort of felt relieved right away because Bertie seemed to "recognize" Jovi as his and was all chill about him. I think part of it is because we've spent a lot time in Bertie's life hanging out with the breeder. She's been a mentor in many ways and Bertie LOVES her. So I think Jovi smelled like her house and that made everything OK right from the start.

If anything, Bertie was stepping in and protecting the pup. We had a visiting St. Bernard at the time and that was a dog that Bertie had very firmly controlled with one little toenail of his. LOL. That was a 68 pound dog controlling a 160 pound dog.

Max was VERY FASCINATED by Jovi - and Bertie basically BANNED Max from acting up around the pup. And Bertie only had to go up and STARE at Max to get him to avert his eyes and go away. *grins*

When we lost Jacks a few weeks later, Bertie completely took over for Jacks in many ways. But I think he also got closer to Jovi because pup was dog company that he needed with Jacks gone. So lots of dog piling and hanging out together - they like to be together and sleep together all the time. They go outside and while Bertie is taking the lead like Jacks used to, he's keeping an eye out for Jovi and they go everywhere together. And it's little things like Bertie being the first to play posture very often and nuzzling and licking Jovi's cute little face. It's a huge comfort for me to see how sweet Bertie is being with Joves. Among else, I can tell he just loves that pup.
