While I have been away….

The past couple of years have not been the easiest, but things are settling down now.  I have had to leave Flotta for good – a wrench, but there it is.  I am now the main carer for my elder son, Ben, and we are in a new house in Kirkwall!

The main change has been the entry into my life of the terrible two.  Just over a year ago I decided I couldn’t live without a Scottie, and I went on line to see what might be available.  Several weeks of searching led me to a litter of wheaten puppies.  Now, I have always wanted a wheatie, so I enquired.  I had just missed the last one.  Then 24 hours later I had another email from the breeder to say someone had pulled out, and the one with the purple collar was now available.  This is Eilidh.

A couple of weeks later a brindle boy became available from a friend of Kath’s, so Magnus became mine.  Tricia brought him up to Lancashire for me and I travelled from there to Inverness by train with two dog carriers!  I was met by my friend Sue and we travelled on up to Orkney by car and ferry.

Both dogs had been born and reared in a family home, so they were very well socialised. 

Ben met them first…

… then Nick (I gave up trying to get them all still – 2 out of 3 was my goal!)

Then came Ben-dog, the black Scottie belonging to Steve.

Both pups were fearless, and on one occasion Eilidh got herself stuck in the mechanism of my riser-recliner.  It took Ben lying on the floor and messing with the motors to get her out.  As soon as she was free, she just curled up by his feet and went to sleep!

Most of the puppy piccies I have are of them asleep – that is the only time they were still enough to get pix!

They were interested in everything, and adored cardboard boxes….

  1. Oh, my goodness – so cute! So much puppy breath! Puppy love! Walks where they get to see new sounds and smells! Baby tails wagging! (They will enjoy playing with your yarn too 😉) I predict a splendid Christmas for you and your family.

  2. The first words out of my mouth were just the same, oh my goodness! Oh my goodness gracious. Too much cuteness in one spot. And double the cuteness loved reading and seeing the photos. My morning smile to see them. Merry Christmas and all the best settling in.

  3. So glad to see you back here! I was on WordPress to manage my subscriptions just last week. I deleted many blogs I hadn’t heard from in a while, but YOU evaded deletion, LOL.

    The “terrible two” are adorable. Wishing you the merriest of Christmases, and a peaceful 2019.
