A little in love.

On Tuesday we took a little trip to Devon. Land of snarly trees, magical landscapes

and inspiration. I can see now where some of my blogging friends who live here get their inspiraition from. I'm almost brimful after just one day.

The weather was not kind to us and I lost my way a couple of times adding an extra hour on to what ended up as a 10 hour round trip.

Finally, tired and hungry, we reached our goal, and added a new member to our family. This little guy threw himself at us when we arrived and was just so eager to come away with us, that we knew we'd found our special pup. He's a 'pocket lurcher' which is much smaller than standard lurchers and he is a Whippet/Bedlington cross.

He slept for the entire journey home, only waking at a Service Station to use his puppy toilet!

After a mad charge around the kitchen and a small supper, he snuggled into his new bed,

and stayed there pretty much all night. What a great little dog.

I think you could say that we are all more than a little in love, although Arnie cat is less than impressed. We've kept pup and cats separate for now and the arrangement seems to suit them all :)

He was definitely destined to come to you and I can imagine you are all thrilled to bits to have him in the family. I'm pleased for you too.
