We got a PUPPY and it's hard!

October 31, 2019


Loosing Eric was probably one of the hardest things I have ever gone through and I don't think I will ever get over it. He was the best dog, always there, calm, loyal and so loving. The house has been deafening quiet without him and I have felt that the house has had something missing since he had gone.


No dog will replace him but a different dog would bring a new chapter into our lives and I hope the silence won't be so deafening, my walks less lonely and the evenings that Dan is not home a companion to share the sofa with.


So I'd done a lot of research - I knew although I love Frenchies I would just compare to Eric and that wasn't fair. I had looked into cross breds in the hope they wouldn't have the health issues that are so common now due to the breed being fashionable.


But I did know I wanted the dog to be small, not over bred, not ugly but also a companion and we started falling in love with Patterdale Terriers.


Although I was picky - I wanted them to be short haired and ideally not black a little brown one.

But Dan was admit it was a no and that we where not going to get a new dog and that was that and I tried not to think about it 24/7.


Then in September we where on a family holiday and the perfect pup came up - everything we wanted and local. I took a chance and showed it to Dan and he said YES!!


As soon as we got back from holiday we went to visit and feel in love  and a few weeks later we brought the new puppy home. Evie has named her Kiki.


She has been the biggest change to our family, I have never thought it but I actually think she has been harder than adding a new born baby to the mix (Dan you where right). But despite my ruined floors and all the hard work - she is the most intelligent, loving, cheeky, protective and inquisitive little pup. With a face that melts my heart.


The house wouldn't be the same without you - but please this time next year I hope the accidental wee's, your witched hour and digging up my garden has calmed down.


Your not Eric, but then he could never play fetch like you - Kiki of course we love you !
