    Well we have a new addition.

    Thought I would introduce her. Please meet Asha, she is almost 12 weeks old and a black lab.

    We got offered a puppy from this litter back when they were first planned, as she is everything I was looking for in a show lab, her mum is a lovely moderate bitch and dad is a bit bigger, heavier but producing really lovely puppies.
    At that time the situation wasn't right as Bos was still here etc, so we said no.

    Last minute one of the bitch owners dropped out and we were asked if we would like to look.......me and hubby both fell for the same one and she just fits.

    I know there are some on here that will judge me, which is fine, i know that i have done the best thing for my household, and for Bos. I know he is doing well and relaxing and a lot of his issues are calming down now he has space just to be himself.

    Lexi loves the new addition, and Nala well she thinks she died and gone to heaven she adores her, and the three of them curl up together.

    Aaaaaaw how cute! (I want a puppy! :eek:)

    Idk what happened in regards to people judging you, but folks on here dont tend to re-home dogs on whim or because they got bored. Anyway, cute puppy, makes me want another, but The Terrors = 1,000,000 puppies so they keep me busy for now!

    I know you've come under fire because of my posts before, and highlighting other breeders who rehome. I've met you, I've met Asha, I met Bos, and Bos will do better in a home tailored to his needs.

    See you tomorrow ;)

    It was my post, someone equated rehoming a rescue schizophrenic patterdale to rehoming unwanted breeding/show stock. Or tried to, to be honest it slipped under my radar until pointed out to me later.

    I bought the cute little puppy collars and the fat chunk was too big for them by the time we needed them......

    I have the same problem with my clothes :D

    I'd love another puppy (rescue), but it would be a long way off when The Terrors are happy and settled if not I'd go for an older rescue dog instead, it would have to be an older, calm bitch (dont point at me) and MAYBE a Jack...

    Anyway! Love the photos! So cute!

    I'd love one of them pups too, but it ain't gonna happen any time soon.

    Nicki got criticised by a member for wanting to rehome Bos, as if she was going to replace Bos with another dog. How you would replace a schizophrenic patterdale is beyond me, Nicki spent many hundreds of pounds, and a lot of time trying to rectify the issues Bos has. Hopefully, he'll find a home where those issues can be worked through, rather than the rescues that Nicki rehomed him through that said he was pet and human friendly!! Well that was at least one dog off their books.

    LL your puppy is so sweet. Congratulations.

    I believe that was my post you are alluding to, however it was not criticising LL, it was criticising you.

    If Bosley was making everyone's life hell, then he should of been rehomed.

    I asked you why you supported one person who was rehoming and planning a puppy, yet making threads to opening threads to personally attack another person who rehomed a dog for reasons you have no idea about. They were not unwanted breeding stock and they were rehomed to a house with acres of land for them to have a great life on.
    Sue had a number of health related problems and personal problems at the time and you was attacking her for rehoming when you knew nothing about it from her.

    I don't want to side track this thread, but I did not criticise LL for her decision, likewise Sue's decision too.

    So LL it wasn't an attack on what you did.

    I love her to bits and she has the most amazing character but oh my god you forget how much hard work puppies are. She puts everything in her mouth nearly electrocuted herself chewing through the laptop cable and turns into a gremlin like creature after she's been fed!!
