About Me

My new parents collected me on June 7th from Wiltshire and I came to live in Horsforth,Leeds.I hope you check in often to see my photos, and read all about my adventures/misadventures!(My little brother,Henri, joined the pack in March 2012)

My brother Woody!

Hi everyone ....I had the best time ever last Sunday. I met my brother, Woody! Mum and dad had been invited up to Northumberland to meet Woody's parents,Sue and Chuck, who were having a weeks holiday up there.

I was out chewing a bone in the garden (Woody was on a walk with his dad) when another fauve, looking JUST like me, ran over and gave me a good sniff! I think I just KNEW straight away that he was the other boy from my litter, because we loved each other from the start!

We were SO excited..especially when the grown-ups took us down to the beach to play. Wow! I'd never even been off the lead before, so to race along with my brother,Woody, was just about the most exciting thing that's ever happened to me!

We all went back to the cottage so the parents could chat over lunch (they're good at that, aren't they!) and Woody and I just chilled out together. I forgot to mention, Woody had his big OTHER brother, a labrador called Ben, with him, but he was okay with me being there, I think.

It was sad saying goodbye but mum promised we'd be going down to Devon to see Woody and his family before too long...I can't wait! I really wish I had a fauve brother to play with every day...mum just said "we'll see what we can do" so... I live in hope!!!

On the way home, we went to see uncle David, aunty Joanne and baby Caleb. I was SO tired after playing all day that I just lay on the floor and hardly moved...they were all very impressed with my good behaviour...if they only knew... it was because I was too tired to even move!!!

I saw Tinky in Golden Acre Park today and we had a GREAT walk together..a "civilised" walk, Maria said. Maybe we're growing up a bit and don't need to rough and tumble so much anymore! I LOVE seeing Tinky and her mum and dad!!

Time for me to go check out who's walking past the window...stay safe and don't forget to keep checking in! Hugs and licks xx Harvey

Tinky and her mum at the Dog Show!

Tinky coming second in her group AND qualifying for Crufts next year!

Six months old!

Hi everyone! I know it's been ages since I last chatted to you all, but I'll try not to leave it so long from now on!

What have I been up to? Hmmm...let me see.

As you may have noticed, I've been quite busy growing bigger over the last few weeks. I've been going to "Tailwaggers" and have now "graduated" to Puppy class 2. I love it when we meet all the other puppies at the class, but, as you know, I only have eyes for Tinky (my half-sister/girlfriend) when we're in the hall together. I just LOVE her to bits! She was SO clever last weekend at the dog show in Leicester. ( I wasn't allowed to go, for two reasons a) mum said I'd be too giddy (as if!!) and b)something about me not having all the correctly descended body parts that boys apparently need to be in a show....don't ask me what THAT'S all about!!

Anyway, Tinky did brilliantly (well, she IS gorgeous!) and qualified for CRUFTS!! I'll ask mum to help me send a photo of the big event so you can see how great she looked....I'm SO looking forward to our class tonight, so that I can bark how proud I am of her!

I'm really excited about this weekend, as mum and dad are taking me to Northumberland... to meet my brother and sister litter-mates!! We're going to Woody's cottage first, then meeting up with Saffie and her family on the beach!!! Wow! My first time at the sea-side, I can't wait! I promise to post lots of pics next week and tell you all about it!

Must go now as nature calls! xxx big licks xx Harvey
