Hi there, I'm new to the forums so I thought I'd say hello. My name's Lindsay and my husband (Luca) and I have recently adopted an 11-month-old Bichon Frise named Oscar. I grew up with a dog, but this is the first time either my husband or I have been dog owners in a household where we're in charge. I've discovered that it's much more hard work when you're not just the small child that gets to feed and play with the dog, but the adult who has to make sure everything is taken care of! Oscar is gorgeous and friendly and lovely though, so it's all worth it I'm looking forward to getting to know some people here on the forum and picking your brains for some advice.
