Gift of a Belgian Malinois Puppy

I’m very thrilled to have been given a Belgian Malinois puppy last week!  Several years ago, as some of you may remember, I did have a dog of the same breed – Hamdy by name; given to me by a Belgian who lives in the eastern Congo. Fantastic guard for me and for the goats:

Looks like Hamdy is counting the leaving stock.

But Hamdy could be so kind and loving - here, talking to me.

My new pup is also called Hamdy – named after H.1 who finally died.  Hamdy 2 is a lovely little puppy and quite stroppy; looks a bit like this pup –

Here are a couple of hunky videos on the breed – they really are quite fierce if left to their own devices; great guards and equally great companions:

    Thanks, Rita; he is such a joy and so intelligent – wishing dogs would live longer; but I think you should get another puppy!

      yes, already this clever little lad knows to do his business outside {which he does by going JUST out of the door} – And he already knows “NO”; how to play with Bebe the cat; etc.

    Puppies are so sweet Diana and grow to be wonderful loving companions. As you know in my last post there was a picture of my sweet Ben whom we lost last year. I am tempted to have another dog but can’t bear the thought of the heartache again when losing them. But I guess in your case a guard dog is good for you. Also may I say your goats look really healthy. Great post Thank you !!
