Hi! I do exist! Apologies for lack of content for say 7 months! Life has been busy and this took a backseat so I could focus on work and some changes in our lives.
The biggest change was we got a dog! We took the jump to get a dog last August and this was the best thing we ever did (strong words I know)! We had been searching for a few months but things fell through or the rescue dog we wanted got snapped up before we got to view them! Unfortunately those dogs may not have been for us but it led us to get the lovely pupstar we have now.
So without further ado let me introduce the new member to our family! Meet Millie the Siberian Retriever (Husky/Labrador cross)!
She is the most wonderful dog ever. So sweet and fun.
We put her into training as soon as we could (with some certificates won along the way –
overachiever) and she has passed her first course (puppy training) and she is now onto her Bronze Training! She is learning so quickly and I am so happy to have her in my life!
As you can probably tell we didn’t get her from a young puppy. We got her from a couple who couldn’t keep her anymore (we are 1 of 3/4 owners) so she was 8 months old when we took her into our family. I am a big believer of giving a dog a home that needs one be that a rescue home or taking them from homes that can not look after them. More and more dogs are ending up without homes because people take on dogs they can not look after. One of the worst things I have seen of late is more and more Huskies in rescue homes because people think they are getting a Dire Wolf (Game of Thrones). This breed needs a lot of exercise which means many people take on too much! I think if you are going to get a dog, or any animal for that matter, you need to do a lot of research and make sure the animal would get the life and love it needs! They are living creatures and deserve happiness too so please think twice before you take on a pet.
I am sure there will be more puppy posts to come as she grows (and gets more silly..see below HA)
