New Puppy in 7 days!
Hello! My name is Hattie, and in 7 days time I will be the best friend to a little girl called Rosie! Her dad is an ESS and her mam is a Miniature Poodle. So basically she is going to be bonkers and so high maintenance! But I will love every minute!
We just lost the family Border Collie. I've never felt heartbreak like it. He had pelvic cancer and it was totally unexpected. The poor old lad just got on with it - the only symptom was constipation. After his diagnosis we had him put to sleep the next day, by recommendation of the vet. It was so sudden. He was old - 13 - but I still thought my heart was going to physically break into a million pieces. I couldn't eat or sleep, all I could do was sob my heart out. But meeting Rosie on Thursday has really got me back on my feet.
It feels like a lifetime ago that Marley was a puppy and I am honestly so nervous. I feel like I'm expecting a human baby with all the nerves, the researching, the "oh no I'm going to be a bad owner", the excitement, all the preparation!! It's madness.
Anyway I'm looking forward to meeting you all!
