We got a puppy!

There is a sensible route to take in life and then there is the more impulsive one and trust everything works out. We tend towards the later! And in this case we have got ourselves a puppy. We always intended to get a puppy once we had fully settled here, it was one of the promises we made to the kids about moving again. But this is a bit quicker than we intended. Ideally, we would have got the garden fenced in first but we can work with that.

He is a 4 month old Yorkie pup, who was looking for a new home, exactly what we were looking for. He is a very friendly little chap and enjoys being around us and the children. Katrine in especially taken with him.

He is definitely used to being allowed on the sofas and this is one habit that we are happy for him to keep. He is a complete snuggle bug and loves curling up next to a lap.

Toilet training is a bit hit and miss, we have only had him for 1 day so not expecting too much, this morning we spent 10 minutes outside and then we wee’d as soon as we got inside but we have had a few successes as well.

Only thing we are struggling with is a name. Katrine and Gregor first wanted Cerberus (as Electra is a Ancient Greek name) but that was too much of mouthful and he doesn’t really look much like a hellhound! (I really liked Merridoc as our old dog was called Pippin but that was vetoed by everyone else.)

Topping the options at the moment are liquorice and toffee? Which do you prefer and we are very much open to other ideas.

    Wow, he looks adorable, I like toffee out of the 2 options though he looks like a Mischievous Marty to me! x
