    Met 2 12wk old puppies today who were Gorgeous and I asked the breed and it sounded like ^ but wasn't, obviously...but that's stuck in my head now!

    Large breeds... very cute as puppies...

    Can anyone put me out of my misery, please? :eek:

    No idea but Daphne du Maurier, according to wikipedia is an author!


    And I quote:

    "Dame Daphne du Maurier, Lady Browning DBE ( /ˈdæfniː duː ˈmɒri.eɪ/; 13 May 1907 – 19 April 1989) was an English author and playwright.

    Many of her works have been adapted into films, including the novels Rebecca (which won the Best Picture Oscar in 1941) and Jamaica Inn and the short stories The Birds and Don't Look Now. The first three were directed by Alfred Hitchcock.

    Her elder sister was the writer Angela du Maurier. Her father was the actor Gerald du Maurier. Her grandfather was the writer George du Maurier."


    I know this helps you in no way what what-so-ever but it made me smile non-the-less!!


    :)

    Crikey no! With my 1 dog, 2 cats & a 9 year old human.... I've got all I can afford!
    Though I would ADORE to get another dog... I keep looking at rescue pages and I have to stop! Can't afford any more beating hearts in my house at the minute!

    I've just been being nosey and looking on the net for pups of that breed but can't seem to find any anyway!

    Was your dog you have now from a rescue?

    I found the pics via google images :)

    Baxter was a re-home, a rescue of sorts... we were his third home, after 4.5 months in a pet shop after being born in a puppy farm :mad: Had him for nearly a year now and aside from the arthritis, we couldn't change him for the world!
