After having a dog for almost 2 years…it’s time for another one!
We’ve had Maggie for almost 2 years now (2 years in January) and we’ve occasionally been thinking it’d be nice to have another dog, but we’ve never been that serious about it.
After going on holiday to visit my parents and yet again seeing Gina and Tiro and what good mates they are and seeing how well Maggie had got on with Steph’s Dad’s dog whilst we were away, it made us think again about another dog. This time, it seems right so we went and had a look around the Dogs Trust the last two weeks and yesterday we found the one :)
He’s currently called Zeno and was rescued as a stray from Ireland. He’s a Black Lab cross of some kind (possibly Border Collie) and about a year old. He’s a really nice boy, very friendly and seems to get on really well with Maggie when we took her to meet him both yesterday and today. We’re going to change his name to Gizmo as Zeno is just a made up kennel name and he doesn’t respond to it at all. With a bit of luck we’ll pick him up next Sunday!
It’s going to be hard work having a second dog, but I think it’s going to be really good for us as well as really good company for Maggie.
