Sometime in July

Ben Short once again obliged me with some photographs, coming to visit my parents’ property for some shots with Buddy and I together. Unfortunately, none of them really worked out, which is why it’s taken me so long to share them.

Buddy was still wearing his light puppy colouring, and was in all ways a cheeky-scallywag puppy.

Buddy (the long-overdue and abridged catch-up entry)

The end of May was an anxious time for me. There was awful (read: tragic!) news about the litter from which I was adopting my new puppy, and the potential for an extended delay in receiving my new little bundle of mischief and mayhem. I was anxious for the breeder having to deal with such wretched issues, afraid for my potential puppy, and worried about missing those vital weeks for bonding and socialising.

Ultimately all these anxieties proved unnecessary – as they so often do. Buddy arrived on time, as pre-arranged in the weeks leading up to the last Sunday of May.

Adopt Me!

Latte has been put up for adoption through the Hobart Feline Rescue!

He’s been available for about a week, and I was so hoping I could get up there to visit him and see how he’s doing personally, but it wasn’t to be. We haven’t yet found a compatible time for a visit. :(

I have been assured by Shelley, the lady I’ve dealt with from the beginning, that he’s doing marvellously! His desexing went well – in fact, he’s now so tame he didn’t freak-out with the vet this time! I admit I’m very proud of him for coming so far!
