    Yep, she has a rubber mallard duck that quacks quite convincingly when chewed, a long furry animal of unknown provenance (possibly a ferret, hard to be sure) that squeaks, and two Ruff'n'Tuffs (the black and yellow range). More on the way soon.

    Off to the vets this evening for her first vaccinations and check-up.

    Seems she's settling well. Good job Hamps!

    As to sandals AND socks, managing a pupper is going to lead to some fashion failures on my part ... it's inevitable.

    Anyway, I have made some minor adjustments today, which are working out quite well. They address the style requirement (no socks OR sandals) and puppy happiness (the little bed under the table). The combination has the added benefit of keeping my bare feet warm. :D

    Love her! as for the feet, not so much

    She's gorgeous. I am so jealous, I want a dog. Sadly work keeps me out of the house too many hours a day to get one. :(

    Nice pics Hamps.

    We just had a young female hound show up on our place this week. She had on a choke collar that was way too tight, to the point that you couldn't even get your finger under it. There was a length of cable hooked to it that looked like the dog had chewed it in two.

    This dog is not going back to the owner if the sorry SOB shows up. She looks like a Blue Tick Hound.

    This is what a blue tick hound looks like.
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

    OK, here ya go. An object lesson in the unbelievably cute:





    Seriously, don't be fooled by the cuteness. Puppy-time is h-a-a-a-a-a-r-d work. I knew it was going to be and it doesn't disappoint.

    It does do wonders for one's organisational skills, it must be said. Suddenly I've had to start planning every next move, where are my keys, which car shall I use and shall she come along for the ride, is the food-bowl clean, where's the food, where's the lead (and which lead, there are three now), do I have a pocket full of treats, and so on and so forth. It's f'ing complex. :D

    This weekend, we have been learning not to shriek at mealtimes, and to deal with the fact that the alpha (me) always eats first. We are doing quite well. Tonight I not only cooked a nice meal in near silence but actually ate it in peace and quiet, too.

    Hamp, when you're finished training the pupper, want to come here and train our old dogs? :D

    Darlene and Xena learn bad habits from each other. Maybe when she's trained you can start the UK version of the dog whisperer.

    Whe's adorable and looks so innocent, sleeping in her open crate.
