Heidi, is a Cocker. My brother, sis-in-law decided they wanted to have a dog for the family so after some intensive research and soul searching, can we take care of it, will it be okay etc., etc., they decided to visit the pound and see what they could see.
They spent about four weeks trying to find the right fit for the family. In conjunction with the good people who take care of dogs, they decided that the best of the bunch that would suit our kind of family… insane, four young kids, brother living in attic, that sort of thing…was Heidi.
She’s one year old, has had some pups (they start so young these days!), and was abandoned. She was found with one of her pups. I don’t know what has happened to the pup. They were in a bad way when they were found.
Anyway she’s been given a clean bill of health, has had all the necessary jobs done and arrived to our place on Friday. The kids are so delighted. My brother, sis-in-law and myself are really happy because she’s so cute.
Heidi is still a little nervous and is starting to get used to her new environment. I think after the trouble she’s had, she’s landed on her paws. Like a cat, only better.
