I’m so so super excited to tell you my good news.
I’ve always yearned for a dog, but it’s just never felt like the right time one way or another, and my Husband didn’t share my enthusiasm.
My daughters begged since she was five and now she’s 15
She’s had goldfish, mice, hamsters & Guinea pigs all of which have been fab family pets, but I still really dreamt of one day having a canine friend.
For the past two years my Husband and I have become keen walkers and that’s how we spend a lot of our time enjoying the beautiful countryside and hiking for miles.
Our holidays are walking holidays and we spend a lot of time in the company of dogs and dog owners.
Over the weekend my Husband announced to me over a quick half in the pub where he was spell bound by the sweetest Jack Russell that he was ready to extend the family with a dog of our own.
Well I nearly fell off my stool… I think I might have squeaked abit
We are hoping to find a Border Terrier. They are such lively characters and I think he will fit in with us just wonderfully.
I know there are lots of dog owners here so all advice is greatly appreciated.
Has anyone tried crate/cage training?
I really want to do all of my research before jumping in too quickly.
Right I’m off to search for some doggy handmade goodies to add to my ever increasing list of things I need to buy in advance.
I think I need a lottery win
