After over five years without a doggie companion (life has always seemed to get in the way), destiny has finally delivered us some puppies. A friend of a friend on a property near here has border collie x kelpie pupppies and we chose two yesterday. Both are girls, one is a silvery grey (will be called Molly) and the other is completely black except for tiny white paws and a white tail tip (will be called Elf).
We have a substantial dog yard, but have hired a post hole digger as we are extending this to a really great dog run so that they will be happy during the day. So they’ve not even arrived yet (3 weeks time) and already they are a lot of work – more of that to come — 2 puppies are going to be a real handful but definitely worth the investment.
