My new baby…

Each week we go to the local shopping centre on a Thursday night and get a nice quick and easy meal. We also take a stroll past the pet shop. We’ve been doing this for months and months, admiring the little doggies and wishing we could take them all home. But we never saw a puppy we really really wanted to take home. That is until last Thursday. 


 This is Serge. He is a miniature Poodle, and is just on 8 weeks old. Here he looks really angelic…but he’s either all ‘on’ or all ‘off’.  He loves to chew your shoes and takes little naps through out the day. He sleeps right through the night and overall is a very good boy. He’s named Serge after Serge Gainsbourg, the iconic French singer. We love him.

While Serge was sleeping this afternoon I made a necklace. I started on another but he wanted to play and would not leave my feet alone.

    Melanie, what a sweetheart! I also have a new baby, a Goldendoodle – Golden Retriever and Poodle, named Samson for his beautiful hair. We call him Sammy (just past 3 mos old now). He joins 2 sisters, Big Bear and Luna. Our home is totally dogified. Enjoy YOUR new baby!! Cheers, Debbie

    Thanks Deb. We might also get a 2nd dog early in the new year. This one is a little angel, and it’s the first dog I’ve had from a puppy. Goldendoodle sounds lovely – ours is Apricot/cream in colour, probably not too different to yours.

    when first read your blog, i gasped. my new baby was the first thing i read and i immediately thought, she never told us! either way, welcome Serge, enjoy your new family. wonder if Serge will earn himself a new collar from mama. Bestest,Denise

    Well I have considered if I can get some little Eiffel Tower stampings to affix to his collar. He has studs on it now, but I suspect he will end up with a collection of collars.
