Today is Sunday 26th September

The day has started cool and overcast, just right for a walk along the prom as hopefully there won’t be many people about.

The search for a new pup continues, and I am getting more and more angry at websites or adverts online that don’t respond to my enquiries. I went direct to a breeder last night and tried to send an email, but when I hit send, nothing happened.  This morning I have three new notifications about puppies for sale (I’ve had 7 this week), but not one reply to the enquiries I have already sent.

When we first moved here, there were two boarding kennels within about 100 yards of each other and BOTH always seemed to have puppies for sale. Those signs disappeared a couple of years ago, whether Covid related or not, and I looked up the website of one, to find that they are ‘closed now’. A sign of the times I guess.

We are always checking the rescue centres, and the closest match so far is a ten month old GSD. He is described as active, bouncy, and BIG, needing a lot of training and discipline. At ten months, that could be more than a handful for us.
There is another crossbreed of a year but he is nervous, has anxiety and separation issues, and cannot cope with loud noises.

We are convinced there is a new pup for us somewhere. Maybe he/she hasn’t been born yet,  but it would be so nice to have JUST ONE reply, even if it’s to say, sorry, nothing available or their asking price is way out of our league.

Not much on our agenda today. Weigh in was good and I have maintained this week. I’m rather pleased about that as I had a couple of ‘bad days’ last week.
Have a lovely day everyone. Keep safe, and take care.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Maybe it’s worth meeting with some of the rescues that have an issue. You would be great with a dog that hasn’t had a stable home life and some issues are a result of dogs being in rescue too long. Fingers crossed for you.

  2. Sorry, you are having trouble finding your newfur baby. I was disappointed by the actions of the recuse centers here when we were looking for a cat.

    I’m sure there is a dog out there for you! I suppose you will need to be patient – getting a child takes 9 months or sometimes years if it is an adoption…

    Shame you’re not near us. Battersea has come up trumps each time we’ve wanted a dog. Best of luck with the search. If only for the health of the dogs I hope you find your next companion amongst the mutts and mongers of the rescue centres.

  6. maybe we should send the doggie fairy out to your house.

    • Would be nice, if only to give us a list of people to contact. Those we have so far have not responded at all and the two rescue centres I’ve left our details with say they have nothing.
