With the guidance of a dear colleague at work (yes, you Sue :)) and through the help of http://www.dogzonline.com.au/we recently interacted with a family in north Victoria to prospectively purchase the gorgeous little fellow you see up the top here. His name is Stuart (Mez's input) and we pick him up in a couple of weeks time.
Those of you that have listened to and supported me through my trials and tribulations in times gone by will know we had a little puppy last year who we lost to a horrible bowel infection.
You will understand my apprehension countered by delight in finding this fellow and we trust that what happened last year will not be revisited.
I plan for this chappy, a long and happy life with us. I don't care about the poos and wees on the carpet and anywhere else. (I do really, but its nothing a bit of detergent and puppy odour spray won't fix). I don't care about having to get up in the middle of the night to take him for a walk outside. I don't care about scratches on the timber or bites in the carpet. What I care about is that unconditional love, that wet tongue that loves to lick and that wagging tail. I will love that curiosity and those little nips he will provide if I don't pay him enough attention.
I cannot wait to have a baby by my bed at night time again...for a short while at least until he gets used to the place and I cannot wait to cuddle up to him when he misses his two siblings and mother.
Let the days roll on and may the 8th. of May see us bring home a loving boy who will happy to live here.
