A new family member..
.. with four legs!!
Regular readers know that we have a little pooch. She is a rescue dog we got when we were living in our caravan. It's my fault - I love dogs. I feel happy around dogs. They lift my spirit. I just can't explain it.
Our wee pooch is six. We rehomed her when she was 9 months old, and she's been a delight. She still is!
A couple of weeks ago I bumped into a lady I knew more than a decade ago - I taught her kids. She was talking about her dog having had puppies, and showed me some beautiful piccies. We chatted for a while - we were at the same event. As a matter of interest I asked how much a puppy costs these days, and I was quite shocked at the price they sell for.
Over the course of the afternoon she had found out what happened to take me away from teaching - other people at the event had explained what I had been through. Just as we were going she came over and thanked me for what I'd done for her kids. Then she offered us a pup for free!
She said she knew Man Wonderful and I would give it a brilliant home.
We came home and talked through everything.
Then we rang her and said yes please.
So today we go to collect our new chap.
I'll add some pictures in a few blogs time.
