Well, that week has flown by! I didn’t realise it had been a week since I left my last 2 cents worth on here.
So, it’s been a busy one. Catching up with Beverley, Janine and Sarah last Thursday being one of the highlights. Not much crafting going on, but a couple of projects had finishing touches etc. There’s a lot more to be done….. with the focus on the study, those ideas are just piling up on the back burner. 😆
But they might all have to wait for a bit. Don’t be surprised if the entries on here are a bit hit and miss: the exams are in 4 weeks time, so it really is time to crank up the revision habits. But there is another reason too. And that connects with the title….
Nope…. not pregnant!!
…… We’re getting a puppy!!!
The SPCA was up at the school for an adoption day and I suggested we take a trip up there to check them out. NOT WITH ANY INTENTION OF ADOPTING! It was more just an outing to get some fresh air and to show Hubby the types of dogs that are usually on offer. I’m a big pound puppy fan over pedigrees. In fact I spent a lot of time telling Mr 7 we were just LOOKING, there wasn’t going to be anything coming home with us etc etc.
Then I saw a face and caved!! I teasingly said to Hubby I was in love and we should make space in the car. He ran – he knew I’d persuade him if he didn’t! LOL
But over the rest of the evening, and through the next morning we kept running ideas back and forth. Part of the clincher was that he was part lab, and with me being home for another 7-9 months, now is really the perfect time to get a puppy and establish those boundaries.
A bit more research online, then a trip to the pound in Newtown. The kids loved him, I loved him and the total clincher at the end was his relaxed reaction to the SPCA’s own hussy cat winding up the dogs by wandering back and forth. Our puppy was all “meh…” Totally cool, calm and relaxed. Just the kind of puppy we want.
We’re sticking with the Pound’s name of Angus: he really suits it. Plus, “Monty” (which was the name Mr 7 always wanted to give a dog) just doesn’t fit. He is most probably a Mastiff-Lab cross… a big dog! So now, we are getting ready for his arrival. The section needs a once over from the SPCA, we need to get a kennel, and Mr 4 needs to choose the bowls. He gets this job seeing as Big Brother had the voting control over the name.
So yes, life is going to be “interesting” in the next wee while! Photos will be added as soon as we have some – and I’m sure you will agree he’s a total sweetheart!
