If you read my post on Friday, you won’t be surprised to hear that we are getting a puppy.
We visited the mum and her pups yesterday and we all completely fell in love. We knew we would, I think it’s impossible not to. We got to meet the puppies’ parents who were both so much fun and very keen to meet us all! And then we spent some time with the puppies, stroking them, holding them and generally adoring them all. It’s hard when you see that many puppies, and at such a young and completely gorgeous age, to choose just one. But we are really not in a position to take on several, which ensured that we did indeed manage to choose just the one, and fortunately we all adored him.
So I want to introduce you all to the latest addition to our family…
…isn’t he adorable?
He’s a miniature dachshund, smooth-haired, a chocolate dapple colour. He was four weeks old yesterday, so we have a four week wait until we get to bring him home. It’s going to be a very long month. His name is currently a hot topic in our house and we do have a favourite, so watch this space for when we do decide on that one…
The breeder was absolutely lovely, and has said that we can visit him as much as we like before then. It’s a good job it’s an hour away otherwise I think we’d be there daily! She also says she’ll send over photos and updates, so it’ll be great to see our little pup growing and discovering the world around him.
So with just four weeks to go, we’d best crack on with those home interiors projects, and I will be sure to update you on those soon, everything is coming along nicely so far.
When he does come home, I thought it would be good to start a series here sharing how we’re getting on each week. I’d like to use it as a way to keep track of his adventures and also as a means to share our puppy journey with others. Is that something you’d like to read?
Anyway, until then, please say ‘hi’ to Puppy Reading!
