This week I’ll be posting more Ellie photos, hardly breaking news I know!
Thanks for all of your lovely comments last week, as you probably have noticed we have a new shiny Comments system that notifies me when I receive a blog comment and also makes it much easier and quicker for me to respond – so now I can read them all and hopefully not miss anyone out when replying! Let’s see! Huge apologies if I do.
Surprise surprise, Ellie dominated the comments section and quite right too, as she is adorable ! but I was also thrilled that many comments included Toby.
Getting a second dog was the subject of a lot of family discussions at ‘Chez Franklin’ (Bonnet De Douche Rodders!) we batted around the pros and cons and decided we would go for it. I believe that deciding to get a dog is a serious consideration for a family and getting a second deserves the same amount of consideration – that said, I haven’t yet heard anyone tell me they regret getting a second, as each dog brings with it a personality of it’s own and – in our case – the early signs are that Toby and Ellie will become great pals and company for each other – time will tell.
As both Ali and Jack asked: Would a second dog affect our relationship with Toby, who has been a total joy (apart from the Fox Poo episode!) since we first got him home nearly six years ago? Well, as I said last week, he has been given plenty of TLC since Ellie’s arrival and (at least for the next week) he still gets to walk alone with his Mum and Dad and doesn’t sleep in a puppy cage at night!
