“How is Alpha?” is a question I’ve been asked quite a bit in recent months. He’s doing well. At the moment he’s on holidays with my cousin Brendan who is seriously good with dogs!! I was in Brendan’s house a few weeks ago and was very taken by how well behaved his dogs were. He certainly has a way with them so I asked him if he’d take Alpha for a bit of “brendan time” while I was on holidays. He readily agreed and I’m very grateful. I sent Brendan a text earlier to see how things were with Alpha – he sent me back this photo. It’s of Alpha with his brother and sister …. they seem to be getting on well together.
