A new addition

January 2, 2016 - family

Back in November a fellow home educating mummy posted some pictures of her dog’s nine new born puppies. Instantly the children, hubby and I fell in love. A couple of weeks later we went round and the children picked which one they wanted. Thankfully they all picked the same blonde girly pup.

Over the next few weeks we tried (and failed) to agree on a name for our puppy. We bought her a bed, a lead, bowls and too many toys.
Yesterday we went to pick up our new baby. Poppy was chosen by majority vote after it proved impossible to unanimously agree on a single name.

The children adore her, even E has given her a few cuddles. Daddy stayed up with her last night to help her settle, so tonight I’m on night duty. Hopefully she’ll settle ok, she already seems very happy here.

The children are looking forward to all sorts of adventures with her, and can’t wait until she’s ready to go out for walks.

Growing up with dogs is such a great thing for kids it teaches them lots of life skills.

Oh she is beautiful! We would love a dog too but sadly we live in a flat and so we feel it’s just not fair.

A great big AW from me! Having our puppy was such a valuable learning exercise for our youngest – so many important life skills and self developmental opportunities. Plus all the lovely cuddles! So enjoy as part of your HE days! x
