Everything's looking 'Rosy'

Yesterday we went to pick up the latest addition to the family - Rosy. She is a cross Jack Russell/'Pippin' and is just nine weeks old today. She is booked into the vets later for her first jab...but shush.....don't tell her!
Mmmm....all this for me?
She enjoyed her journey home from Southampton, sleeping most of the way with just a pit stop for a drink of water and the toilet. She quickly made herself at home, exploring everything within reach and meeting Sophie and the cats for the first time. Had a yummy meal of puppy food and then sat with us watching television.
Trying Sophies' bed out for size.
After trying the big dog bed she sensibly decided the little doggie bed was the cosier option and settled down to a full nights sleep. She woke at 5am had a drink and a mad half hour and then dragging her bed over to be closer to ours she quickly fell into another deep sleep and let us lie in til 7.30am, (a rare occurence in this house).

Trying out her bed, later moved to our room.

Now she is fast asleep at my feet after a morning of exploring the house and the garden, she's met the chickens and strangely they are scared of her!! They must think she's a little rat. Sophie is quickly getting used to her and Toby thinks she's just another little animal for him to watch from the distance. Archie is unsure, he's never known a dog smaller than him and is just baffled!!

Back with more pictures of our new cutie next week, in the meantime have a lovely weekend.

  4. Serious case of puppy envy here... what a sweetie..though I am sure my cat would not agree with me. How is she getting on with your four wheeled friend?
