My Brother "Casper Bear"
This is my Brother Casper Bear. He is a Chocolate Labrador and almost nine months old. He was diagnosed with Canine Hip Dysplasia when he was just 6 months old. He is such a lot of fun and looks after me when we go for walks. He is always happy despite his condition, which is quite acute. He plays with me and sometimes I do bite him! Awhh, I hear you say, but I am only small and he is VERY BIG to me. Whe he charges at me sometimes I just panic and bite him. He never growls at me though. Oh dear, I've made myself feel guilty now, that's not like The Princess.
We got Casper a few months after my brother "Jasper" crossed over the Rainbow Bridge in February this year. It was so quiet without Jasper (who was a little bit of a monkey), that Mum couldn't bear it, and Mum had a dream that Jasper was coming back to her as a Chocolate Labrador, so the hunt for a Chocolate Lab was on. Mum scoured the papers and internet and eventually we found Casper in Nottingham. What a little chocolate pudding he was too, just eight weeks old but still bigger than me. I guess I'll just always be short! Even the cats are bigger than me and the tortoise is getting there fast too! Oh well, they say the BEST things come in small packages don't they?
It's true Casper is so like Jasper in so many ways, everyone says so, I'm starting to think Mum was right - eerie! He even does the same "eyes" as Jasper did. Mum well believes in all that sort of thing so I just play along with her anyway! Still, I'm not so sure it's not right!
Well, I'm off for my nap! We girls have to get our beauty sleep.
More about me and my family and things and fun stuff again soon.
