Kevin my hubby said about getting a dog after the cat was no longer with us, well eight and a half years on I'd still be waiting!!Taylor bless her is heading for 18 and holding her own against kidney failure and other old age probs!!
Even though Barney is laid back and friendly I was a little worried bringing home a tiny puppy, eight years of being his own boss (apart from when Taylor pushes him around!!) For the first few weeks I was very careful to supervise carefully. No probs at all though )
I did tell the children that Barney would growl if Cassie over stepped the mark and not to tell him off as he needed to set boundaries and Cassie needed to feel her feet. They get on like a house on fire now and really complement eachother.
