Puppy Picking

A few weeks ago we received the phone call we'd been waiting for- we had a puppy!

We've been looking for a good few months now for a friend for our Westie, Dougal, and wanted to make sure we got the right one. Going through the Kennel Club seemed like the best way, as after having lots of problems with Dougal's health when we first got him, we wanted to make sure this didn't happen again. So when we recieved the phonecall, telling us that a litter had been born with 3 girls and a boy we were very excited to pick our puppy!

We travelled to Cheltenham to meet the breeders, their dogs and of course, the puppies! And here they are...

The mum, Dusty, was very peaceful, gentle and obviously very tired! The puppies were just a week old and I've never seen such little dogs! Now we had the tricky task of picking which puppy would be ours. We knew that we wanted one of the bigger puppies, and after lots of deliberation, we finally decided.

So, here she is, welcome to the family Lexie :)

I hope to use this blog as a diary of Lexie as a puppy, following our visits to see her, her coming home, training, playing, sleeping and the trouble she gets in to! Let the trouble begin!
