New family member!

Our last big dog had to be put down about 2 years ago and then last year our other dog died, leaving us with only one dog. Whilst it is certainly much easier with one, there are often periods when our dog is on her own for a lot of the day, so we thought it would be nice to have a companion. Recently Brenda heard of a school friend who had to get rid of a 2 year old Golden Retriever since they were moving, and we decided to take her.
Magic arrived on Saturday and is absolutely gorgeous. Really friendly and has settled down quickly.
Unfortunately our one cat is not as happy and dissapeared last night. We spent about an hour trying to get her down from our tree. That was until our moronic nice neighbour arrived with his bull terrier off the lead  and uncollared, to see what was happening. That of course meant the bull terrier attacked the tree and the cat climbed higher! This was all at 11pm last night and me with a broken toe running around in pj's and slippers! We eventually gave up and went to bed hoping for the best. Fortunately she appeared this morning and we have kept her locked up inside for the day, much to her disgust. Hopefully things will settle down soon!

  1. I'm so happy to hear when dogs whose owners have to give them up find new, loving homes.
    Good on you!
