The Puppy Has Landed!

Aaand now he's conked out! <3 113/365

He’s here! Finally, after wanting a dog for *far* too long, and deciding that it wasn’t the right time, there wasn’t the time, or the money and so on and so forth. FINALLY our wee family is complete! We has a puppy!! He’s a lab collie cross, 8 weeks old, today to be exact. We have named him Alfie, and he is *adorable*!

Not only adorable, but, so far at least, he’s so chilled out! Of course that may be because today has been quite a day for him. He was the last of his (10.. yes… TEN) littermates to go, and 4 of them were today. This is his first time away from his mamma. He is doing *so* well!

No accidents as of yet, he’ll follow behind me wherever he goes. Until he sees Zack, in which case he follows him! The cat is, well… becoming tolerant of him, and Max has kind of noticed him, but is keeping his distance for now! Oh… and he sits! Like, on demand! I swear, even when my friend and I were eating our carry out tonight, after a couple of “ah ah ah” moments, he just lay down at our feet and fell asleep!

Of course… this can’t possibly last.

Can it?

    Aww, he’s so sweet! We’ve been wanting a pup for ages, & we’re finally going to start looking in july, as soon as we come back off holiday. I can’t wait!

    Gorgeous, gorgeous! How adorable that he just lay down at your feet and went to sleep. Now, how to train the kids to do that too….. 😀

    Hahaha I know, if only eh? 😀
    He’s been really good so far too! Only one accident, which was my fault for not keeping an eye on when he’d last had some water. He *so* wants to please us. Which is awesome!!

    I have such a good feeling about this lil guy. He is just desperate to please us – Zack and I both! The two of them were out playing chases in the garden and it just melted me completely. 🙂 x

  10. June 4, 2011 / 12:41 am

    He’s such a sweetie too! Couldn’t have got a better pup. (famous last words… lol!) x

  11. June 4, 2011 / 12:45 am

    Hell I’m already spending more time with Zack as a result!! 😀

  12. June 4, 2011 / 12:46 am

    He’s gorgeous! I think Max is who he wants to herd. Of course Max (and Zack and I) aren’t having any of that! LOL
    He follows Zack and I around like…well, like a puppy! hehe 🙂 xx

    We used to have a lab/collie cross and she was the loveliest dog. In fifteen years I only saw her look funny at anyone once. She was brilliant with the kids, when they came along – to the point it was quite hard to teach them that they shouldn’t pull her around the way they did, and they certainly shouldn’tt try that with other dogs!

    Alfie looks gorgeous. I hope you have many happy years with him 🙂

    Ahhhhh totally cute, great mix for a dog and love the name. Alfie was on the short list for my Murphy, only didn’t choose as Oscar has a friend called Alfie.

    You will get lots and lots out of having a family dog, enjoy it X

    What a sweetie. The lab collie cross probably means he will pick a family member and spend his time rounding up his sheep. Have loads of fun. Dogs are fab.

    He is sooooo adorable!! I want another puppy now – even though mine’s 4 and still thinks she’s a giant one 🙂 Enjoy your new ‘baby’ 🙂 x

  17. June 4, 2011 / 4:23 pm

    Awwwww, he is just too cute!!
    Love and hugs.
    Lisa. xx 🙂

    Good grief! One can certainly hope!

  19. June 4, 2011 / 8:06 pm

    omgomgomgomgomg I am madly in love with him, he is GAWJUSS!!! xxx

  20. June 5, 2011 / 2:00 pm

    He is! Fast asleep at my feet again. He’s gonna be a big boy, if his paws are anything to go by! 🙂 x

  21. June 5, 2011 / 2:00 pm

    I feel like that’s our wee family completed now. It’s a nice feeling! 😀 xx

  22. June 5, 2011 / 2:00 pm

    So far, so good! 😀 x

  23. June 5, 2011 / 2:01 pm

    He’s a wee star so far! And yes… the cuteness is almost unbearable! I have to stop myself from going all mushy with him! LOL xxx

  24. June 6, 2011 / 12:43 am

    Very cute!! I think you guys are going to have lots of fun together!

  25. June 6, 2011 / 3:36 pm

    He is fab!! Our pup is now 6 months old – they grow up so fast. Take lots of piccies of him to remember when he was so small 🙂

  26. June 6, 2011 / 4:23 pm

    Oh god that poor bitch 10 puppies LOL

    He is so adorable can’t wait to see what antics he will get up to! How’s your beautiful cat handling it all?

  27. June 7, 2011 / 11:11 am

    Oh I have been! Mind you… they haven’t made it off the camera yet! >_<

  28. June 7, 2011 / 11:12 am

    LOL that was my first thought too! 10 pups… can you even imagine?? O.o
    Rocky’s nose was out of joint for the first couple of days, but he’s chilled out now. He knows he’s still priority over the dog. 😉

  29. June 7, 2011 / 11:12 am

    He is *such* a good wee pup so far, too! 🙂 x

  30. June 10, 2011 / 6:27 pm

    OMG too cute! We’ve been wanting a puppy for way too long ourselves. We’re getting a puppy later this year! I’ve contacted a kennel and we’re going to visit this summer and hopefully get a goldendoodle around Dec/Jan. YAY!!!

  31. June 10, 2011 / 7:24 pm

    Ohh YAY! We nearly got a labradoodle, but lost out at the last minute as the owner’s friend asked to have him. I guess Alfie was just meant to be our pup! 🙂 x
