Meet Beau, Our new little addition to the family

Hi folks, I thought you'd all like to meet our new little addition to the family. This is Beau and he's an 8 week old English Springer Spaniel. We picked him up on Saturday and I'm already completely smitten with him.
He's already into everything and is a proper little wiggle worm with needle sharp teeth. I'm training him to not bite us at the moment and he's already improved loads, he's also sitting and is getting better with toilet training. Obviously we've had a few accidents, but its only to be expected he's learning fast.




Woody has been really good with him, we've had a few grumbles but nothing too bad, he's been trying to get Beau to play with him and its lovely to watch.


We did intend to get a girl, but when we went to visit the puppies she was sooooo timid and hid the whole time. Whereas Beau bounded straight up to us and was all cuddles and licks and loved both of us from the start. He's proving to be a really confident pup, and wasn't even scared of the car ride home.


We're just hoping now that Woody and Beau continue to get along. We will have Beau neutered as soon as he's old enough so he doesn't become too dominant.







I love this pic, both my boys are sound asleep. Woody had a fur cut yesterday though so is not looking like a woolly mammoth anymore.
So I've been a bit busy since Saturday, and I'm absolutely shattered. Next week will be hard when its back to work, they won't be left too long though as I work part time. I'd still rather be home with the dogs though ;o(. It was our wedding anniversary yesterday, but instead of going out we stayed home with the pup, but didn't mind in the slightest he's a little sweetheart.

Awwww he is soooooo cute! He will have lots of fans. I really want us to have a dog, my eldest is quite scared of them (no real reason) and my youngest is dog mad! they are both at the right age now I think. But we might have to wait a bit longer as DH job is a little uncertain at the moment.

Hope you have fun training him up and giving him lots of cuddles.
