Spock was born in my second Brandywine litter, and was one of fourteen littermates, eight boys and six girls. Spock lived with his brother Kirk in Derby with my son until he was 16 months old, but has now returned to live here at Ratty Corner. He visited regularly before then, hence the photos and weights throughout his life. Spock's a cheeky little chap who likes getting into mischief, and is the dominant rat of the pair.
