    Well it was a beautiful day now its murky and cold. I think someone told porky pies on the weather last night as they said the storm wouldnt hit us until late afternoon.

    I have visitors all day, lucky me. I might go and lock myself in the loo with my book and claim I have a bad stomach. Guess it wouldnt be fair on hubby lol.

    Other than that, nothing. Just cooking tea for those that turn up.

    I hope you have better weather than me

    Oh I'm in no rush. I'm determined we have a rescue dog rather than buy a puppy.

    I guess I need to decide what sort of dog I want, how big etc, and even the possibility of 2 dogs (if I can get the right pair).

    All good in Wolfie's house, just need to stop the hubby from showing me dogs in kennels that need a home as it feels like he is influencing me. I might bite him :nailbiting::nailbiting:

    I'm a big fan of rescue dogs. They can be a bit unpredictable, but are generally so grateful to have found a home with kind folks.
    Dogs Trust are usually very good at sussing out the dogs' character, and that of potential rehoming humans too, and march them up rather well.
    Good luck to you, and hubby.

    Morning

    Well it's wet here and cold. So no gardening for me. Instead we have the granddaughters here for lunch.

    On a more pleasant note - we have a new dog. We collect him on Wednesday. His name is Freddie (race name Fozzie Flintstone), he's 3 1/2 and black with a couple of white tips. He's a pleasure to walk and very placid. Spent a huge amount of money getting things for him like treats, toys etc. The owner of the Retired Greyhound Trust remembered us from having Logan back in 2007 so that was good showing photos.

    I might not be around tomorrow - I'm due to have a small local anaesthetic operation at the local hospital. Have to be there for 7am so not sure what time they are throwing me out.

    @Cumberland how did it go with the dentist?

    Enjoy your day

    If it's any help regarding the right kind of breed? I've always found (in general.) Labs pretty sensible dogs.. If your concern is H&S for a child.
