labradoodle dog

It seems our family continues to grow.  Meet Buddy.

For the past month or more N and I have been going to a local dog rescue centre looking out for a dog.  We weren’t expecting to find one we fell in love with so soon, but decided that if we were serious about looking for a dog we wouldn’t find one without at least visiting.

Buddy came into the centre as a stray, and is still very skinny (beneath his thick curly black coat).  He must have had a home once upon a time because he’s house trained and sits when told to.  Most people we’ve spoken to think he’s a Labradoodle – he’s got a Labrador-ish face but a very Poodle-ish bottom with a little tail that sticks up in the air.

He came with the name ‘Buddy’ – initially we wanted to change it, but having gone through numerous baby name website and dog name lists nothing seemed to fit better.  So it looks like he will stay as Buddy.

This is a new adventure for us, and nearly a week after getting him both of us are quite tired.  Tired but excited, and really loving the new addition to our family.
