So we’ve been um-ing and ah-ing since Christmas last year about getting another dog. Someone to keep Max company during the day and to play with. We wanted to get a big dog but also one that’s got a peaceful personality and good with children. Which was why almost six years ago we decided on getting a Golden Retriever, Max.
We’re not interested in having to hassle with breeding and puppies, yes they’re cute but a lot of work too so we decided we wanted another male.
Dina did some searching on Gumtree and came across a few posts with various puppies for sale. Then we came across the following entry – just look at that face? He’s a cross between a Siberian Husky (mom) and a Golden Retriever (dad).
We saw the advert on Monday already but I had meetings on Monday and Tuesday evening so couldn’t go and see the puppy earlier. So I arranged to go and meet the family and see the puppy this evening. The idea was to go and have a look and see if we liked him and decide whether to purchase him or not – well, just after seeing the photo alone it was pretty much a foregone conclusion that he’d be added to the Baroutsos Farm.
And so, welcome to the family, Shadow!
