Chippindall Marlin Oh Boy
Otherwise known as Marley. Judith's favourite dog.
Marley is one of Poppy's puppies. He was our only male until Charley arrived and has been desexed to prevent any breeding "accidents". Marley was originally supposed to be Judith's daughter's dog, but he bounced back to us. Even though Marley is a very healthy dog, we don't wish to breed from him since he has a few characteristics we don't want to propagate such as being somewhat impatient with children, and he also has a mild case of luxating patella, so he has been desexed. He is at the bottom of the pecking order so tends to get picked on by the other dogs, particularly by his sister Ebony. He is the big sook of the family. Marley is a bit of a trouble maker and is by far the noisiest dog we have, but he is Judith's favourite dog and the feeling seems to be mutual.
