I've been running around here, there and everywhere today and just haven't had the time to tell you the fabulous news, LOOK................
Yayyy, I'm on the Bunny Zoe Design Team. Can't wait to get started.
And for my second bit of news, OMG, just look at what fell into my arms today:-
This is Ollie. He is just over 8 weeks old and is a Bichon Frise. This was the smallest bed from Pets at Home, his head is about the size of a tennis ball. He is just soooo cute!
I was convinced by my daugher who has been harpering on about never having a puppy, and as she has had such a terrible time of late, with the recent loss of her best friend I have given in. So when my friend came over from Spain with her Spanish Water Dog and decided that she was going to return to the UK for good, I offered to look after Kira whilst she returned to Spain to pack up her house. I said to Jade and Conor, right this is your time to look after the dog and if all goes well I'll let them have one. What I didn't expect was how much I was going to love Kira and when Andrea gave me her return date, I was upset to think we would have to give her back, so this is where the story began.
I would like to say though that not owning a dog before I searched the online Ad places, with help from a couple of friends of where to look, and I nearly fell victim of the scams that are going on. I was so shocked by this. I contacted one of the Ads for puppies advertised in Guildford. I had a response with a load of questions about us as a family, kids, if we had a backgarden etc. I saw this as a good sign that they were looking for a good home. I answered them all and received an answer back saying they were happy with my replies and that due to work relocation they were actually located in the Isle of Man, but this wouldn't be a problem as for £250 he could arrange in the morning, puppy transportation. I wasn't 100% happy with this, so said I would look for my own transport, to which surprisingly he said yeah o.k. I thought well he must be genuine. Transport quote was £750, so of course this route was out of the question. I advised that it wasn't working out and he said he could do it for £150. To cut a long story short after googling I found out that this is a scam and you would never receive the puppy and you would go on to receive calls from the transport company with problems, like the wrong crate and they need another £500, etc. etc.
I enquired after another 3 different puppies all with different locations, and all the responses were similar to above. So just to warn you if you get anyone changing the location to Ireland, Isle of Man or anywhere a long way away, and the offer seems to good to be true, then it is. Stay well away.
Thankfully we travelled an hour to Essex for our little Ollie and he is adorable.
