I guess we'll just see what happens then, good news is my tolerance for piss and shit has sky rocketed since having a baby!
That's my concern, every ad I see online just looks so dodgy.
Sunday 3h walk with plenty of obligatory water stops
Gorgeous - they look like a right pair.
I am so getting a dog.
But I need to move back to North London, and there will be building works and home improvements for the next 3-6 months. My plan then, is to do all those things and then get a dog after.
And it will be a Cocker Spaniel, I just love them all.
My next door neighbour has a cocker spaniel. He’s a lovely little dude and our kids are obsessed with him. His name is Thibault too, for bonus cycling-related points.
Mine are called 'leave it' and 'get here you little bastard', is Thibault French for either of those?
We met our first podenco last week - rescue from Spain? Lovely dogs.
I believe it translates more or less as ‘for fucks sake why are you always under my feet?!’
Or in the case of 'get here you little bastard', completely ignored of course, 'why, when I am trying to cook are you currently insisting on sitting on my foot?'
Have never herd of these just had a read up. They are beautiful another dog on the wish list. One day.
The thing I was reading said many go to rescue in Spain beacuse they are not included in a protection law beacuse they are "working" dogs so are treated badly.
Dog update - arriving tomorrow, touch wood. Massively excited.
If I get up from my desk and run to the doorway fast enough then stop with my legs wide apart I can get Benny to come sliding through my legs with about a 90% success rate as he has to be besides me when ever I move so he bolts down off the bed the second I start moving.
When I go between rooms he'll literally have his nose pressed up against my leg as we walk and in the kitchen I have to look every time I move my feet as he will lay right beside me while I'm cooking and he's silent like a ninja. I'm definitely going to break my neck one day tripping over him.
In the same way riding a bike has trained me to look over my shoulder every 5 seconds even when I'm walking, I'm looking at my feet every single time I'm about to move anywhere when he's not even in the flat.
Again wonderful, thanks.
They’re great and made even better by getting to have loads of fun with them then hand them back
Ha, I'll pass that on... I love staffies but not sure it'll be a practical breed for us, I'll have to walk it and I won't have the time...
Lori's cousin has got staffie, I spent most of last Saturday playing ball with her along the riverbank at her uncle's place... She's great fun but bloody exhausting... And afraid of the water... 😂
Testing to see if Errol could manage hiking the west highland way. He managed an impressive 13 mile hike before he started randomly lying down.
Awww what a cutie. Ours does that after a long walk. He just velcros himself to the ground. He also does if he doesn't want to leave the park, or the house or anything really.
This is Chi-Chi.
We got him about a month and a half ago, he's a 4 month old Lurcher x standard poodle X.
(mum was a whippet/greyhound/collie/bedlington mix)
Oh my goodness 😍
I think if I was going to choose, I’d probably be looking for something like chi-chi. I’ve always liked lurchers and lurcher crosses.
‘Just throw the fucking ball yeah, human.’
I've never felt anything other than revulsion at the idea previously, but if you created an instagram for Chi-Chi I will follow....
Ha, yeah same here. Did screenshot doggo pics and whatsapped to wife in next room :-)
I sent it over to gf who has put it to the top of our 'small one' list (the dream is a comedy little and large double act, with a wolfhound as the big one) - such a beautiful little thing!
Some great pics
Loving hanging out in the park early evening at the moment. Still sunny, but cool enough for chasing the ball.
