Jacqui the dog for Christmas Eve Eve

Eldest bro and eldest bro's gf got a new puppy last week - a gorgeous little staffy cross named Galileo. They brought him over to family tea last Monday and we saw a bit of a change in Pounder... it seems that having another puppy around calmed him a little, gave him something else to concentrate on other than his own craziness.

Mumsy and dadsy had done a bit of looking around for a friend for Pounder, and yesterday one of the local rescue people came to check out our house and approve us for this lovely girl, Jacqui:



Jacqui was rescued from a puppy mill, a 2 year old girl who had already been used for litters for the prior 18 months. She was described as follows: ...would love a little doggy friend like her when she goes to her forever home as she thrives on company, both human and dog. Jacqui walks well on a lead, is perfectly house trained and is learning some very important manners from her foster carer who used to be a dog trainer! Jacqui has a delightful personality and would suit a person who is looking for a friendly and very happy dog. So we were hoping she would be a good influence on Pounder.

This is what mumsy and dadsy picked up from Sydney today:


A little bit 'chubbier' than what was in the photos, but you can tell Pounder is very happy about it!


Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Rescue dogs are the best kind. We got (last minute) Larry from a country pound - we'd been looking with ARF, but not found anyone, then one of the carers rang us saying "there's a dog that I think might suit you at the pound, but none of us can take him. He's due to be put down tomorrow" Nothing like some guilt to get us moving! Just over a year later and he's going really well, apart from his bad habit of killing lizards...
