A puppy for Christmas

I know they say you shouldn’t get a puppy at Christmas time but….at a meeting in London the other day I was offered the chance to have a 12 week old puppy for a few weeks over the holidays to provide new things for him to see as part of his preparation for learning to be a “diabetic alert and response dog”.

Well I couldn’t say no, could I?

Paul and I are going to meet Denise Hayes tomorrow to collect little “Eddie”.
Denise breeds Affenpinschers (monkey terriers), and they are small, black scruffy, live wires with bags of personality. Here is a picture of Denise’s first ever Affen, Maisie, still going strong. “She has a lot to answer for!” says Denise

I am so excited!!

Dusty, our boaty coalman, has just rung to see if we would like to give a home to “Little Legs” a 9 year old Corgi x Jack Russel. The owner’s new job means that the dog will be left alone for long periods of time. We will have a look and see what we can do….but only after Eddie has gone back. More news and lots of photos soon.
(This blog seems to be going in a number of directions….boaty stuff in the summer, dogs and wildlife all year, and then we have the family and friends stuff too. Should we try to organise this?)
