Bobby First Day!!

Post by Tinaj » 21 Feb 2010, 18:03

Just to let you know that we arrived back with the new puppy - I still cant believe I was allowed my choice of name - Bobby it is!!

He's had rather a hectic start cos everyone was here to meet him when we got back. The kids were over the moon to say the least - it was a bit emotional with a couple of adults of crying at the kids happiness!! Blade our border collie doesnt know whats hit him and keeps hiding as much as he can!! Bobby had his afternoon nap and is now being cared for by four children..............

I will try to upload some pictures as soon as I can but in the meantime I promise he's having a whale of a time.............

:hello2: Well, the house is slightly quieter now that our visitors have gone (all come to see Bobby - not us!!).

I'm ready for bed and going to leave Bobby for Phil to sort out for the rest of the evening. I didnt sleep too well last night (I think I was too excited) and was pacing around the house until gone 3.30 am! When we woke at 7.30 a.m. it was thick snow in Oldham and I was in a state of panic that I may not have been able to collect the little fella! So I sent Phil out walking Blade to check the main roads!!! The main roads were fine but we did a car swop and collected in my car as its a 4X4 - but then I lost out as Phil wouldnt drive and he got to sit with Bobby in the back all the way home having cuddles .........some lame excuse about he couldnt drive my car in the boots he was wearing.....!! The cheek of it!!!!

Alls well though - he's doing really well. He's pretty much kept to his feeding routine inbetween playing with the kids and have a well earned snooze!!

Will aim for pictures tomorrow but the camera is playing up and when I take pictures it keeps us there is an error!! Will sort it soon.

When I saw the snow when I woke up yesterday I did think about you Tina but didn't have a shadow of a doubt that you'd make it out to collect Bobby. :love2:

How did his first night go ? I can't wait to see some pictures. :love5:

Love

Bobby sounds so sweet, I did ask Carol how you had got on with keeping the big secret from your children! I bet they are the happiest kids at the moment! I am so pleased he has made your family so happy and I don't doubt he will be the happiest pup too! Wishing you all lots of happiness :love5: ! x
