I did end up with another dog Ellers, which I didn't mention in my post. My two daughters pressured me into getting one five years ago, I said that they were old enough to look after him and walk him. Do they? Do they ****! It's me out with him, sludging through the mud in the pissing down rain and freezing my bollocks off in the cold. He's a good lad and wouldn't want to be without him now. Enjoy your doggie, she sounds lovely.
