About Kirk

Kirk was born in my second Brandywine litter, and was one of fourteen littermates, eight boys and six girls. He lived with his brother Spock in Derby with my son until he was 16 months old when he returned to live here at Ratty Corner, although he visited regularly before then. He is named Kirk because he has a Star Trek symbol on his forehead. Kirk is a steady and affectionate little man.
