Hello evreyone and a Happy New Year to you all . This is my first post although I`ve been viewing the forums for quite a while.
I thought it was about time to introduce Lottie to you .
She is 17 months old , still very much a pup , very mischeivous , petite (around 27 kilos ) extremely loyal and loving and a real daddies girl .
I never really wanted a dog , but under pressure from my wife , her friends and my daughter in law , I finally cracked and we got Lottie as a 7 week old bundle of energy and all the problems and waste matter that small dogs are known for .
It didn`t take long for me to bond to my new pup though , and once the inocculations were done and we could get out into the fields for a couple of hours each day the benefits of owning a lively dog really showed themselves.
Fresh air and exercise has got to be good for a man of 50+ plus I have the responsibility of caring for the physical and mental well-being of my dog .
I see too many dogs around my area that only see life through a window or through a garden fence , never exercised properly and going stir crazy and barking resentfully ( it seems to me ) at other dogs whose owners spare the time to walk them and integrate them into their busy lives.
Lottie has the best care we can give her . She runs every day rain or shine and swims regularly , and she has friends in a small dog owning fraternity who play with her and make her life all the more enjoyable.
I didn`t want a dog but after bowing to pressure I`ve got one and my life
is all the better for it , I wish I`d had one years ago

Awww. welcome :)

So glad you bonded with your girl after not really wanting a dog in the first place, and good that you are honest about it too ;)

I think dogs certainly enrich our lives, and can give a sense of purpose - of course it is not all plain sailing, but I always find with dogs, the more time passes, the easier things become.

Shame the same cannot be said for children :lol:
