    Awww, bless his heart, the little sweetie! Extra hugs sent to you, Arthur! Almost had to do that with my house rabbit, Benjamin (named after Beatrix Potter's "Benjamin Bunny") - he's 1/2 Flemish Giant, and he would go into corners deciding to "mark his territory" - thank goodness we have hardwood floors, and he grew out of it quickly. At the time, though, he was given the title, "Sir Pees A Lot" :)

    Lucky boy for growing out of that habit quickly! Oh, and what else would you call a male rabbit?! Except Peter perhaps. And the girls can only be Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail

    This time last year we were getting our heads around the idea of moving to Alberta.

    Today, husband is off to Las Vegas for a fun/work weekend, and son and I went ski-ing with another family from son's school. I have friends to ski with, I have a new sport to do with my son and husband, and life's great! Cor.

    Oh! And I learnt cross-overs in skating lesson yesterday. I was so excited!

    .......new furry friend......

    I have posted for advice in the non-horses area, but need to blog here too

    I'm going to get a lap dog, I'm going to get a lap dog, I'm going to get a small bundle of fur to cuddle

    So, the story is this:

    We have two dogs who we love, and now we live where we do are easy peasy to live with.

    On Tuesday a lady knocked on the door, a little anxious, apologising for trespassing. She has two GSD bitches that she is (long story short) trying to rehome.

    I promised to talk to hubby but said probably not as we're not looking for a third dog.

    On Thursday I remembered to tell hubby, who astonished me by saying yes if I want to take one - he is a sucker for German Shepherd types. I don't list GSD's as my favourite big dog, and if I was looking to get another big dog it would be a different breed. Anyway..... It got me thinking.... Do I want another dog?

    I've always wanted a lap dog

    So I browsed the dog rescue web sites. It's SO SAD there are so many big dogs out there, all of them with big trusting eyes. Why do people breed so irresponsibly?? What's wrong with people?! Pay to get the dog fixed or don't have a dog!! Anyway. I am still not looking for a third big dog so I have hardened my heart to all those lovely dogs in need of a home but I HAVE found that there is a smaller number of unwanted small dogs.

    So..... Tomorrow night I will call a lady who has four six month old Bichon-Frise/Lhasa Apso x Afghan Hound puppies for rehoming. I will ask her a couple more questions about temperament and if she gives me the right answer.... On Wednesday I will go to collect one.

    Fabulous!! Small enough to be a large-ish lap dog and hardy enough for solid counrty living!! Do realise your professional grooming bill on a dog of that breeding is determined by region. Maybe look into local groomers and count on at the very least, 4 visits per year - more if you want to keep a longer coat. Good luck! The pups sound like a great age!!
