New Baby!

Well back at last! I feel I have been in limbo. It seems an age since I had an Internet connection and in another life.

We are settling in our new house and are slowly getting the studio sorted. We need to decorate it to make it perfect but hey it is a workable space now. I will post pics soon.

But before that I wanted to introduce you to my new baby.
He is called Fred and is somewhere between 12 and 18 months old.

He is a little gem. A rescue dog, of course, who has been a stray in Glasgow so he has a Scottish accent.

The accent could account for the selective deafness and him wanting to do his own thing. We are going to start class soon so he will find out I am definitely in charge.
The effort will be worth it as he is very loving and very bright.

Oh as you can see he just loves to dig holes on Woolacombe Beach.

Hi All,
Thanks for the welcome back. So glad to be here.
Fred is a love and good company. He reminds me not to work all the time and fetches me a toy from time to time. ;0)
Hugs, Alis

Glad to hear your move is settling down now and you have a space again! Fred looks like he is enjoying the beach. Do you live near Woolacombe? I spent all my childhood holidays on that beach - we used to hire a beach hut and throw a ball out into the rain for our dog to fetch. Ha ha!!

Alis said...

Hi Helen,
Yes we live in Ilfracombe an my parents in Mortehoe. A nice Sunday morning will find us on Woolacombe beach.
Hmm, must remember to get Fred trained off the lead so I can follow your advice!
Hugs, Alis
