Betty’s First Week!

As a lot of you would be aware we recently decided to add  a new furry friend to our family, a little female Moodle. You would also be aware it has taken us quite some time to choose her name……..but finally we I have made a decision (Zadada said ok) and we’re going with ‘BETTY’.

Betty 28

Betty has now been a permanent resident for a whole week and I will say each day she has been with us a little bit more of her personality gets revealed, she’s just a little sweetheart who’s been welcomed with open arms (I will add here we still have one three-year-old adjusting to her presence, little puppy claws and teeth can be a bit scary at times, we’re getting there).

Betty 34

We’ve never owned a small dog before and I have to say we’re embracing it (as I said one little three year old will get there), as I type this post Betty is sleeping soundly on my lap and I’m loving every cuddle like this that comes my way ( my turn happens when the kidlets are all in bed), don’t get me wrong with the small dog thing, we love our BIG Zapuppydog with all our hearts and wouldn’t trade him for the world, being able to have both makes me feel very fortunate. As a little girl all I ever wanted was to live in the country and own a dog and now here I am living in the country happily married with 3 children, 2 dogs, a cat, 3 guinea pigs and  20 head of cattle give or take (there are some babies on the way!).

Now getting back to our newest little addition I couldn’t resist but to snap up every moment possible from her first week here with us. Apologies for the abundance of images, I just couldn’t cull them down any further than this.

There’s been a few socialising lessons taking place and so far everyone has behaved. David the cat looks from a distance but hasn’t got close enough for a picture yet.

A certain little someone likes to spend quite a bit of time at my feet, she’s even had a little yap at me when I move away as if to say “please come back!”

And speaking of feet little Betty has a slight fetish with one Zadada’a ugg boots…..thank goodness I got rid of the old ones!

There’s been lots of playing……

I will add there have been puppy poos and wees in the wrong places but also in the right places too, I’m very grateful for a house that has tiled living areas, I think the toilet training will just take lots of time and patience. All in all little Betty is doing just great and she’s added another dimension of happiness to our little family. I’ll be sure to keep you updated on her progress.

If  you have any puppy tips I’d love to hear them.

Stay tuned mid-week for a yummy baking post that involves lemons!

Until then……..

  1. Oh my gosh! Betty is just gorgeous. What an adorable little ball of fluff. I haven’t owned a dog since I was a kid sorry, so no puppy tips from me sorry.

      Thanks Renee we are enjoying her very much just not the little messy bits she leaves for us to find. You so should get a puppy!

  2. Betty is adorable! Getting a new puppy is so much fun. I forgot how cute our Charlie was until I saw your photos.

      Unfortunately adorable doesn’t stop the little messy bits she leaves on the floor for us but we are loving every other part of having a new puppy and she’s now even sleeping through at night! Have a great day

  3. Oh wow she is just adorable! I keep thinking of getting a second dog to keep our Labrador company. Would love a smaller dog next time. Does your big one get along well with her? They’re both gorgeous 🙂

      Thanks Good things Small.
      Our big lab Locky is getting along really well with little Betty. So much fun watching them play together. Betty just runs rings around big Locky.
      Thanks for stopping by.
