A new addition to our family
Yesterday we made the trip up to Lincolnshire to choose out Munsterlander puppy and here he is - 'Raycris Branko' who will be known to us as 'Sirius' after the Dog Star, NOT the character in Harry Potter and absolutely nothing to do with IPods!!! We were so impressed with the breeder and owner and his mum, Hanna was an absolutely gorgeous girl with a temperament to match. We chose this little chap as he was full of character and beautiful with it. The breeder called him the 'thug' - he was certainly the fattest so is apparently getting more than his fair share from the 'milk bar'. But he doesn't throw his weight around in a nasty way - he just tries it on a bit and is contrite when corrected (perhaps I can identify with that myself!). This behaviour to me speaks of great intelligence and when properly channelled, will make a fantastic dog. Now begins the looooong two week wait until we can go back and collect him!
