Pompe was born way back in 1999, March 5th. Here he is very young
He was a real little hooligan, he litterally ate our shoes, no, not the whole shoes but the insides! He liked to chew the insoles!
I still have a pair of my ex favourite sailing shoes, Henri Llloyd, very nice on the outside but no insole, no not even an inch of one!
When we came home to Karo, the 'Big Yellow', as everbody called him, he was big,
we looked in both dog's papers and it showed that Karo's father, was the father
to Pompe as well!
Yes a yellow or a black labrador can get a brown, yellow or a black labrador.
Labrador genetic short lesson:
Svart=black brun=brown gul=yellow
So by coincidence, bought from different estates, we had a big brother, Karo born 1990 and a little brother Pompe, 9 years younger!
They were happy for about four years until Karo went to the happy hunting grounds in the kitchen, when Pompe, my wife and I were sitting there.
Then happened one of the most unbelievable things that ever happened to me.
I witnessed a transmigration, I never thought it possible but I have witnessed it!
Instantly Pompe became Karo, but in black suit! He became grown up, stopped chewing shoes, and more, his physiognomy changed.
His head became wider and he got a snub nose!
From this nose (this is Winston but he looked the same)
to this, Pompe is here 6 year old, two years after Karo left us. As long as that I kept calling him Karo by misstake!
After some months we got Winston and this time it showed that they had a common Grandfather
They became inseparable mates and has had so much fun through the years.
You seen pics before
And alaways together, here Pompe is resting on Winston's back
Sleeping in the aerly morning after some running in the wood!
The last walk with both dogs...
Pompe slowly limping after his little brother who is waiting for him (!)...
Now two weeks later Winston has started his transforming!
He can lay outside uncoupled for hours and he is very craving for affection - which he get tons of, of course
Please notice his elegant crossed frontlegs, he always lie like that, shows his class
I hope he will have a buddy soon, I'm only waiting for my wife to say the timely words!
Next time (!) perhaps I write about some horological stuff, like everyone else
Doc & Winston
