    Hi everyone,

    Just thought we would introduce ourselves and our new pup Alfie.

    We got him from Mel AKA Changes on here and must say what a pleasure it was dealing with Mel. We had an instant connection with her and when we saw Alfie formerly known as Bear, we knew right away that he was coming home with us.

    So the journey started from North Wales to Hinckley where we live which turned out to be 134 miles!!! Mel even gave us a cage for Alfie which is what he slept in from birth. What a god send this turned out to be. We put him in his cage for the journey and the poor little thing couldn't cope with the twisty Welsh roads and was sick in the back. After that he was out like a light and stayed like that until we got home, AMAZING!!!

    He's had his jabs today which has made him a little grumpy and he was sick again in the car. He's now feeling sorry for himself and sleeping in his bed. He stirs every now and again for playtime and I think he has taken a fancying to Chicken & Tripe food.

    The journey continues...

    Here's some pics of him and Lucy.

    Thanks everyone for your messages. We've just had a licking fest (him on me, not vice versa) on the floor with me wetting myself laughing! By the way this is Dan, Lucy's hubby. Lucy is at work so we're having a boys day.

    Poisongirl, don't worry, I am building up a collection of piccies.

    What a lovely looking pup, loving the name too!

    Crates are brilliant i have to say, good of them to give you his, have crate will travel!! Hahahaha

    You can get some homeopathic tablets for travel sickness if you find it continues, i think they are called coccolus (also you can use Nux-vomica, which again are homeopathic)

    Just try to build up her confidence in the car even taking her food in there and feeding her the odd meal in it when the engine is off. Then with the engine on, so she associates the car with positive things and not with being sick!! LOL
