Introducing Digby

24 Aug

For those of you who know us you will also know that we lost our beloved little Scrappy dog in June – thankfully we have been very busy so that has kept our minds of how much we miss him.  Last week, Pat (the lovely lady who dog sits occasionally for us) emailed us saying that she had a little Jack Russell cross who had been left at her gate.  She has 8 girl dogs of her own and so can’t take a male.

She said she knew it was a bit soon after Scrappy, but that this little chap was just gorgeous – very good with people and other dogs and immediately thought of us as I had said I would consider having another small dog in the future and she knew how heartbroken we were at losing Scrappy.  She said that there was no pressure on us as if we didn’t think we could have him, he was going in a vehicle to Holland on Sunday with one of the charities here (lots of them go to Holland – they must be really kind over there.  I emailed back saying that we would give it some serious thought that we felt it was a bit soon, but that we knew we were in a position to take in another little hound.

Once Mick and I had discussed the fact that we were indeed considering taking him we kind of knew what would happen next!  We went to visit him on Saturday and one look at his little face and the deal was pretty much done, on the basis that if he fit in with Kevin the Pointer and us we would keep him.  So we brought him home for the rest of the weekend to see how things went.  He is absolutely adorable, very very good and even Kevin seems to like him.  So we emailed Pat to say that things were going very well, we loved him already and to cancel his place on the lorry!  So we are back to a full complement of dogs again – Digby (the new one pictured) has not replaced Scrappy, but we knew he wouldn’t mind sharing. I hope he has a happy old time with us.

    He looks very distinguished!! Just needs a monocle, pocket watch and waistcoat! I bet him and Kevin make a right pair?!

    Well they kind of go a bit bonkers together – Digby is a lot younger than we thought – so he is very puppyish but very sweet and they do seem to like each other.
