Hi all I mentioned in my last post I was thinking of getting another dog, Tango is thirteen in a few days and I know I will be absolutely bereft when he goes, I’ve never been without a dog in over 40 years and I don’t think I could function without the love and companionship of one. My friend Sue brought the subject up again when she looked after Tango when I went to Jersey, as she knows too well what I’d be like., so we set the wheels in motion. It got round the dog world of obedience that I’m involved in and I had a few offers and suggestions. I opted for one from an old friend of mine. She was from a broken home and is eight years old and has been with my friend for about 5 years. she breeds little Spitz dogs and felt that Ruby just needed a home of her own. I didn’t want a young dog as they can live till 15 years and that would take me …. well we won’t go there…pass.
She is very shy as she hasn’t had a lot of socialising for some time, so my work is going to be cut out gaining and restoring her confidence. Though she appears to want affection.
She’s small which suits me now, I don’t feel up to coping with German Shepherds any more. sigh
Tango has accepted her as he does with all dogs.
She peed on my sheepskin rug. fingers crossed that was a one off.
