This is not a hastily made decision, and whilst I know a lot of people in multi dog situations will persevere and separate dogs at all time this is not a route that sits well with me, my dogs must be happy in their home, tension does not make for relaxed dogs and the dogs welfare must take precedence over my emotions.
The right home was offered several weeks ago and at the beginning of last week Morse went to his new home, just up the road from us, in Brixham. He is now living the dream, allowed on furniture and sleeping on the bed, and he gets to share this luxury with one of his sons, and as if that wasn't enough, he lives within walking distance of the coast so he gets fab walks every day.
The transition is going to take a little while, he and his son have had to work out some personal space issues, but this is going well and there is no reason to suppose that they won't be best buddies in the not too distant future. Morse is understandably feeling a bit insecure and is currently quite clingy, but again this should almost certainly resolve itself with correct handling and time.
As I consider Morse to be an important addition to the UK poodle gene pool, he will remain entire and I still plan to have a repeat mating with him and Spirit in the next few months.
Enjoy your new life Morse, my big black muppet.
