New arrival

Not a book, but a puppy! Tim. Three months old, very small, half the size of his big brother. He was very politely and quietly sick in a towel in the car five times on the way home, so  he wasn't up to smiling for his picture. He's crapping a lot still, probably nervous and strange, but he slept through the night but for one little burst of crying. Two piles and two puddles waiting for me in the morning. Good job the kitchen floor is what we used to call linoleum but is now known as cushion flooring.
So now I'm off to buy him all the necessaries he needs. Since he might grow quite rapidly I'll buy cheaply and invest in good stuff when he's six months or more. I can see I'm going to have no time for anything for the next few days except looking after Tim!

If you didn't have the bed,collar, lead ready - was your new arrival unexpected?
He's so sweet, and does look a little bewildered, Jen. Hope he settles in and you post lots more pics of Tim getting into mischief.

What a lovely little boy! My husband and I had a dalmatian, our little Gretchen, who has been gone now about 10 years. She needed so much love, but luckily we had so much love to give! A win-win!

Puppies are so wonderful! Lucky you!

Oh, I love Dalmatians! My husband and I had a lovely little girl, Gretchen. She needed lots of love, but luckily for all, we had lots of love to give! We still miss her, gone these 10 years now...

Puppies are such wonderful bundles of pure love! Lucky you!

Anita, I didn't want to tempt fate by buying those things and then discovering that he'd gone to someone else. There's a pet shop close by, so I was able to run up the hill to it very quickly - once we had him!

How popular is crate training in England to cut down on the accidents?
Of course, this comes from the person whose dogs all sleep in the bedroom, without crates ...
