Since our beloved husky-German Shephard Saffy passed away in July we’ve been casually shopping for a new dog.  Vikki and I both decided we wanted something smaller, and mellower.  In short, something that will be content to just hang out, and doesn’t take up too much room. 

Last week we found what we were looking for in the form of Carter.  He’s a Chihuahua/terrier mix that we got from the animal shelter.  About a year and a half old, had his shots, neutered, some puppy school.  All is good.  He’s a bit of an escape artist, but when he’s not escaping, he pretty much just wants to hang out with us, and he’s about the same size as our cat.  Perfect. :-)

Pictures to follow.

We have done something similar. After our previous dog (an airedale terrier) passed away, we just got ourselves a new doggy - Tirza (9 weeks now). She is a Dutch brand called "Friese Stabij". It's not known very well, internationally I mean, but it's an acknowlegded breed. You can see a picture of the pup and our youngest kid on http://www.van-andel.nl/puppylove.jpg (can you count the number of pups he has on his lap?? :).

(the answer is three!)

Anyway, together with five other (international!) doglovers that I met through the Internet, we've created a dog training site http://www.dogtrainingclinic.com. On it, you can get yourself a free 7-day ecourse on the basic puppy commands that we wrote with the six of us! Feel free to drop by and sunscribe to it.

I wish you a lot of fun with Carter!
