Meet Teddy the West Highland terrier who we adopted from our local pound, and a new edition to our family.
You can see in the photo below that he was putting on his ‘please adopt me’ look, or was it his ‘I am scared, please take me with you’ look. It didn’t take much convincing, let me tell you. We couldn’t believe our luck when Kim stumbled upon his adoption post on the local council website! It is not often you get such a wonderful little dog that has been abandoned and handed in.
Here is a better photo of him, taken this afternoon, when we signed the papers and handed over the money for his sterilisation (by law), microchip, vaccinations and doggy wash and clip. Ironically, his operation is the same day as mine!
I do believe that Ben has fallen in love with the little fellow! He has a great temperament, but we will only see his true character once he gets used to us.
We pick him up on Thursday next week, after all the processing has been completed. He will be earning his keep by keeping the birds away from my veggie patch and away from the chicken feed. Hopefully I should be able to teach him to ignore the chooks and not play or eat them. Time will tell.
