    I can’t believe how much support I get from people who don’t even me. This has been along decision time for us, my partner Dayne. But like I said to him I feel it’s the right time. Granted Kai who is our son. Might not be at the most desirable age to have a dog, but I am very confidant in him, he has grown up with large breeds and is very gentle with them. And I’m certain myself and Dayne will install all the things he need’s to know. It’s very exciting like you say, the prospect of another little face greeting you in the morning make’s me smile from ear to ear. And now that we have narrowed down our breed’s it’s a matter of meeting the dog and truly seeing if they are the ones for us.
    We are going to a show in Skye on Saturday and meeting a breeder and her dog’s which I’m really nervous about. I know from the moment she see’s us we will be judge and that’s fine I totally understand why, it’s her babies leaving her with another family, not the easiest thing to do I am sure. So a sleepless night it will be tonight.


    Again thank you for your honesty and most of all your kind words of encouragement.

    I've got two Golden Retrievers - have had Goldies for years, in town, in the country, with kids around, on their own, in pairs - you name it, they are good at it!!

    Great - fantastic to hear. In the mean time you may wish to do foster care for a rescue group to get back into having a dog in your house.
