I am getting a new puppy. I am going to collect him in a week and a half or so. He is in the basket above – can you guess which one he is?
This is him when he was a few weeks younger
His parents are working sheep dogs from a farm in Worcestershire. Andy and Gill breed a litter or two and train up the pups as sheepdogs before selling them to sheep farmers when they are older. This is their website and as luck would have it the newest blog post is all about a young 18 month sheepdog Odo who has the same mum and dad as my puppy! Odo looks amazing by the way.
Gill took these photos of the little pup for me. Apparently he was the first to open his eyes and to go off exploring.
Here he is at maybe just five weeks old. I think he means business and I can’t wait to meet him.
There will of course be regular updates on how he is settling in. Currently I am thinking of names – and it isn’t going to be Burger Bob …. no it isn’t James and Holly! Any suggestions would be most welcome.
I kind of like Arabic or Persian names, but that being said I am currently quite enamoured with Zephaniah – Zeph for short ?? Or Dylan, or Zengi (after, of course Nur ad-Din Zengi, but of course ….).
N.B. and yes, it is amazing that I get any writing or editing done with pictures of him on my computer!
N.B. Kainaat has no idea what is about to happen in his world!
