After much scheming and planning, we have decided to get a spoodle puppy. I found a litter on TradeMe and, on Sunday, we went off into the wilds of the Manawatu to play with the puppies. Petra picked out a wee boy who’s mostly ginger but has patches of white. He’s only about four weeks old at the moment, so we’ll have to wait for a month or so before we get to bring him home.
Time enough for me to get all nervous about the responsibilities of dog ownership and rush off to do some research. Also time enough for dog proofing the yard. And for Petra to chose a name. She was getting a bit tense about the pressure until she wisely decided that it’s best to wait until the puppy comes home so that she can try out the names on him and see which one fits.
Here he is at four weeks – looking sleepy.
