Getting Prepared For A Puppy!!

Over the last few months we have been talking about getting a puppy. It feels like every hour of everyday someone mention puppies. We have decided up to yet we are having a girl dog and going to call her Mollie!

So sweet!! English Golden Retriever

First we thought a gorgeous Golden Labrador.

After reading everything about Labrador’s and especially how big the grow we don’t think this dog is right for us at this moment in time.

Then a pretty little Bichon Frise.

How beautiful are these!?!

Maybe a little too small for all of us!

A when my son is home there will be 6 people in the kitchen at dinner time, it will need to be a lot bigger to get attention. After reading about the Bichon it sounds as though these like lots of attention and she would need more haircut than me! Not fair on me, haha 🙂

Don’t they just look adorable with their curls a pink bow in the middle of the hair though?

Now we have decided on the perfect dog for us.

A Border Collier.

A dog to have fun with, train up to do all kind of fun tricks. How cool would it be learning her to do something for a showground event where you see all kinds of talented dogs?

Once she has grown big  she can also become my new running partner.

On the look out now for that special dog.

I have brought her some things, got her name picked (Mollie) we just need to buy her now!!.

 Do we choose Blue Merel, red and brown, tri colour or a traditional black and white one!?! I know as soon as we she her she will be the right choice.

I am now preparing my house to be puppy friendly. Buying everything we will need for her.

How hard work can a puppy be?

    Aww they are cute! Those Bichon Frise! I want one. My son has been asking for a dog for years. Sadly we cant afford one but if ever we will get one I want a medium size one to grow with my son.

    All great choices. I'm absolutely in love with a Brichon/Shi Tsu mix right now. I have pics up. Labs remain my fav breed though. Border collies are pretty smart, cute and funny.

    Puppies are awesome. We just got a husky/lab mix a few months ago. He's a sweet dog. Good luck!

    Prepare yourself, lol, puppies wreak havoc! We had one that loved to chew – on everything. So many shoes ended up in the garbage that year. Well worth it in the end though…our dogs are truly loved. 🙂

    Border collies are my favourite type of dog- that's what I had as a child! I couldn't have a dog but I like seeing them! I bought the CUTEST dalmation jumper today in the sale at Sainsbury's!x
