On Monday Mark got a new dog, she wasn't exactly local proving that I shouldn't be allowed on the internet until I get a better grasp of geography!! She is a blue heeler that was best puppy in breed 2007 at Crufts but has now decided she's not in love with showing so Kimberly kindly said we could have her. She loves being in the car (unlike the whippets who hurl) and she has already been over to polo and been "head in charge of lorry" so far, so good.
For anyone considering a heeler her breeders can be found here - www.austmans.com/acd.htm they have both older dogs needing new homes and occasionally puppies.
Sadly we still have the same number of animals in the house with the sad demise of Obe the Hamster, he was a very very old hamster.
