What is the perfect thing to do two days before Christmas? How about adopting a dog? Because we've got nothing else to worry about ... but sometimes you just have to roll with it. We have been talking about getting a dog for ages now, and had looked at a number of rescue ones, and then the right one came along, so we just went for it. Here is Mishka.
She is a seven year old German spitz (American Eskimo Dog I think in the US) and is cute, calm, middle-aged and friendly. It's only the first afternoon but so far so good (we'll see how she sleeps!). We're trying to ignore her this afternoon so she knows that we are the top dogs, and she seems to be settling in well. Anyway it has given us something to think about today .... we've never had a dog before so it's a steep learning curve of food and toys and beds and leads.
I will let you know how it goes ... she comes with a 14 day return policy. Just saying.
