A new friend for the boys

Remember only a few weeks ago how sad the boys were that their surrogate pet, Auntie Anna's dog, had to be put to sleep? Well, we knew it wouldn't be too long before she began looking for a replacement for him, but we didn't think she would find the right dog quite so quickly.

 

Like her previous two dogs, the new one is a rescue dog and she collected him yesterday.

 

Isn't he a beautiful looking dog?

 
 
 
He is a 2 year old Collie/Jack Russell cross and has such lovely colouring.

 

 
After much debate about what to call him, she has decided to name him Shadow, because of the dark fur on his back.

 

 
Although he has only been in his new house for 24 hours, the boys were eager to meet him and so Auntie Anna brought Shadow to meet his new buddies this afternoon.

 

 
 
He seemed quite at home with the three youngest boys.

 

 
 
And Calum especially is delighted to have a new furry friend. He can't wait until Anna thinks the time is right for Shadow to begin his dog agility training!

  4. That's a beautiful dog!
    I would love to have a dog but we're gone for a whole weekend each month and there's nobody willing to dogsit (and we can't take the dog with us)... My husband things it would be too much of a hassle to look after the dog. Makes me sad but hey, in a couple of months I'll pretend the new baby is my doggy ;)
