Lassie comes home!

Pic 1: Baby, at 10 weeks

Pic 2: Big girl, aged 8 months

In June of last year, Molly (our mongrol princess) had 4 puppies who took over our home and hearts until they were all re-homed with folk we knew, aged 10 weeks. We still had regular contact and visits from 2 of the 'girls' and were able to watch them grow and reap 'pup havoc' in their new surroundings...

My favourite baby featured in my avator on a knitting forum and I was heartbroken when she left home originally. Guess what's happened?? Unfortunately (or fatedly! Is that a word??), her new home didn't work out for very valid reasons not really relating to the dog. She has been with us for nearly 4 weeks and we have now decided she'll be with us permanently! I am thrilled to have her home. However, that's now it!! The kids have been well warned that the 'ark' doors are now closed! But I absolutely love our menagerie of now 3 dogs, 4 cats and 2 rats (MsB's jury's out on the rats, though DD1 swears they are completely loveable??? They've got ratty tails and eyes - how can that equate with loveable???).

I remember how heartbroken you were, understandably! - It's great that she's home again!!!

It's lovely to have her back to be honest ... this one was my 'baby' in the litter. She is like my shadow at the moment - in between driving the other 2 daft! She is oblivious (or ignoring!) the dog hierarchy in the house and has to be discouraged from play biting a handful of Abbie's cheek hair and then dragging the 'leader of the pack' around the house by the face fur!!

She's so gorgeous and cuddly looking! I remember how gutted you were when she left home originally. It's lovely she's back home. I bet she's spoilt rotten. I would love to have as many animals as you although I would give the rats a miss. My Mum would have a fit! haha. I'm reading a book just now called Dogs at War and they are the most incredible, loyal, brave animals in the world. It's such a good book but every few pages I have to stop reading because I can't see the words for the tears!

Thanks, K! As you know, we have a mini zoo here ... but I prefer the dogs to the cats (shhhh don't tell the cats!). It feels like much more of a relationship with the dogs as cats are such independent wee beasties at times. They all tease me in the house as the 3 mooches all shadow me round the house and collapse around the feet of my typing chair whilst I'm on the pc (probably cause I am chief feeder!). It's getting hard to find a place to put my feet at times:)

That's why I couldn't never let mine girls have pups (apart from their health issues) - I'd be too fussy about where they went to & would take them all back (if I ever let them go in the first place) + Airedales have BIG litters.

Enjoy her!
