A New Addition

The lack of blog posts this week is all down to our new baby.

A seven month old red and white border collie who is gorgeous, naughty and mad as a box of frogs in equal measure.  His previous Daddy had heart problems and so Harvey was on his way to the RSPCA Rehoming Centre.  My brother was in the right place at the right time and was able to snaffle him up for us. 

He's settled in very, very well and after his arrival on Tuesday it seems like he's lived with us always.  The cats are twice their normal size and the chickens are a tad perplexed but all shall fall into place with perserverance and time.

She says nodding manically and smiling through gritted teeth.

Meet Harvey The Hooligan.  (hereinafter known as "HTH").

Isn't he adorable?


  1. BC's are fabulous dogs. Our Monty's (Lab') best friend is a BC, and I take them both for a long walk every morning. Dare I say it but the BC is much more affectionate and well behaved than Monty. Lucky you!

  2. My friend has always kept collies, she says it's embarassing having a dog who's more intelligent than she is LOL

  3. What an absolute beauty. x

  4. He's lovely, a friend for life!

  5. He is adorable and congratulations!!
    Just how mad is a box of frogs?
    Have fun!

  6. I know you've been busy but I have posted the Vanilla Extract recipe for you.
    I'd hate you to miss it!
    Hope HTH has settled in well for you.

  7. Thank you peeps!! Hello to you all - sorry I'm a bit hit and miss at the mo - it's been a mad few weeks!!

  8. Welcome to Harvey - what a gorgeous addition!
