Puppy Love


Spud has arrived, there are a few things he’s not quite got control over yet, including his ears

Puppy love 5-2

The first night he was so quiet that I lay awake in the small hours, worrying that there was something wrong with him, not a whimper did he make. However he has been somewhat more vocal since! It really is like having a new baby in the house.

We are all besotted.

Puppy love 3-2

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

    Wishing you, Mr uhdd and the boys many happy times with Spud – he couldn’t have chosen better humans!

  2. Spud is a sweet puppy, I love his ears, his eyes, just adorable. I wish you all many many happy moments together. I’m very glad for you.

  3. aaaaarrrrrrhhhh hes so dam cute – arh, thats all i can say, aaaarrrrrhhhhhh . sara. xx 🙂

  4. A bit like Dumbo with ears like that! I’m not surprised that you’re all besotted as he looks to be a real cutie! xx

  5. What an adorable pup. Congratulations!

  6. Oh my, he is a sweetie, isn’t he! Of course, the Cowboy looks very sweet until you get to know him . . . OK, the Cowboy does not look all that sweet just now on account of having rolled in something vile and gotten his curly fur all full of pickers, but you know what I mean. He and Miss Sadie beg to inquire how they might acquire some nice boys to play with, as I seem to be very much preoccupied these days.

  7. Best get the boys good at picking sticky bobs out of those ears!

    He is a good looking young man, though, isn’t he!

  8. I’m in love with Spud :-)…. he is absolutely gorgeous… enjoy his puppyhood… best years of your lives though it might not always seem like it when he starts chewing…lol

  9. In the dictionary listing for “cute”, Spuds photo should appear. He is adorable and I bet he grows into those ears. 🙂

  10. Wishing you all lots of happy times with Spud – he is adorable.

  11. Awwwww!!!!! He’s beautiful!!

  12. Welcome, Spud. Get used to the adoring fans, I suspect you’ll be stopped and fussed by everyone you meet!

  13. What a gorgeous dog! And what a lucky dog to have found himself a family like yours. He is going to have such an exciting life. All the walks, all those people to meet, all those places to go! I hope he is up for it. He looks like he is ready for anything.

    We are currently thinking about getting another dog. Just doing the research etc. I am now, of course, thinking of another springer spaniel!

  14. Good luck with Spud
    I heard he arrived

  15. so pleased you have him – he looks beautiful! young dave says long ears are very cool.

  16. Oh my goodness – I am in love! Spaniels are my absolute favourite. I’m making do with an imaginary one though, until circumstances mean I can have a real one.

    *sends a pat and a great big belly rub*

  17. Isn’t he just absolutely gorgeous!! That’s a fabulous photo of him with his ears flying everywhere.
