Mollie The Border Collie

Mollie has been really coming out of her shell this week.

Exploring the garden, playing with toys and running after everyone's feet.

She is such a little sweetie.

Mollie has also been poorly.

Injections!!

Not nice :(

She has not been herself for a few days now!!

Hopefully back to her happy {and into everything} self very soon ...

10 Things I've Learned From A 8 Week Old Sheepdog


10 Things I've Learned From A 8 Week Old Sheepdog.

10 Things I've Learned From A 8 Week Old Sheepdog

Mollie our new and adorable Border Collie puppy is definitely keeping me on my toes.

We have only had her a few days, yet it already feels like she has lived here a lot longer.

How clever are Border Collies!?

The first day we had a few toilet accidents in the house then on only day 2 she started whining to be taken outside!
Maybe because we bought her from a farmer and was used to being outside?

(The Vet said farm puppies are easier to toilet train.)

Whoop, who. Hopefully no mess in the house then!?

10 Things I've Learned From A 8 Week Old Sheepdog


10 Things I've Learned From A 8 Week Old Sheepdog Puppy:

1.) Sleep Routine Goes Out Of The Window:

Did you know there is more than one 2 o'clock in a day? 

{Yep and two 4 o'clock and even two 6 o'clock}. 

Saying this I got 7 hours sleep last night!!

2.) Falling In Love Can And Does Happen Instantly:

You can fall in puppy love and care so much for something you have only had a few days.

{She is so sweet everyone loves her, who sees her.}.

3.) Running Around The Garden In The Middle Of The Night Becomes Normal:

Running around the garden in your PJ's in the middle of the night can be fun!

Not!!

{Trying to tire her out for a few more hours sleep once she has been to do her business is becoming every day occurrence}.

4.) You Start Talking In Baby Language: 

For some unknown reason, you start talking in baby language. 

You can not help it and only notice when someone tells you. 

Every time you speak to your puppy the words that come out sound like baby talk.

{Good girl!! goo goo}. 

5.) Sheepdog/Border Collies Are Such Fast Learners:

A Border Collie can learn something straight away. 

{Day 2 whining to do her business, amazing!! still a few wee accidents though}.

They are like sponges and absorb what you are telling then straight away. 

Give me paw Mollie " hands it to me straight away". 

Amazing!!

6.) Training You Dog To Go Outside To The Toilet Can Be Quick With A Little Bit Of Patients:

How quickly an 8 week old can be toilet trained. 

{Read no.5, he he}.

With a little bit of patience, training and a treat or two, Sheepdog can learn pretty quickly as they just love to learn new things. 

7.) No Need For A Foot Warmer:

A puppy makes a good foot warmer. 

{Just stand in the same place for more than a few minutes e.g washing the pots and she comes and lays on them!}.

She loves to come and snuggle up to my feet to make her feel safe, I think.

8.) Never Every Leave Any Shoes Around:

You should never leave your shoes around. 

{The laces must be so tempting to chew on}.

Also taste so good to a puppy and easy to chew on.

Especially when the teeth are in need of something to munch on.

9.) Every Smell In The House Will Now Be Blamed On The Dog:

Every smell that is made in the house the can now be blamed on the dog!  

{Boy can she trump too!!}.

10.) Confidence Will Come Every Day:

She grows in confidence every day. 

Day one she just sat quietly, now nobodies feet are safe!!

Mollie The Collie: Puppy Diaries


Mollie The Collie: Puppy Diaries.

Mollie The Collie: Puppy Diaries

You know how I said yesterday I had some news to share?

So we did it!

We got ourselves an adorable puppy.

An 8 weeks old Border Collie.

Meet Mollie the Collie.

Wow, how hard work is it at first!?!

If  I stand still for a minute I have a foot warmer.

If I leave her at night she wines the house down.

If I turn my back for a second she leaves me a present.

But she is so adorable!!

And I already love her to bits.

Getting Prepared For A Puppy!!


Getting Prepared For A Puppy!!

Getting Prepared For A Puppy!!

Guess what!?

We have decided to have a new baby!!

A fur baby.

We Are Getting Prepared For A Puppy!!

How exciting!?

Getting Prepared For A Puppy!!

We have been buying a few essential as we have set our minds on having a doggie, so we need to get thing's ready.

Making a Decision  And Sticking To It:

Over the last few months, we have been talking about getting a puppy.

It feels like every hour of every day someone mention puppies.

We have decided up to yet we are having a girl dog and going to call her Mollie!

Picking A Dog:

Getting Prepared For A Puppy!!

Golden Labrador Or Retriever:

First, we thought a gorgeous Golden Labrador.

After reading everything about Labrador's and especially how big the grow we don't think this dog is right for us at this moment in time.

We would like a bread of dog that is not too big and not too small.

Getting Prepared For A Puppy!!

Bichon Frise:

Then a pretty little Bichon Frise.

How beautiful are these!?!

Maybe a little too small for all of us thought!?

When my son is home there will be 6 people in the kitchen at dinner time, it will need to be a lot bigger to get attention.

After reading about the Bichon it sounds as though these like lots of attention and she would need more haircut than me!

Not fair to me, haha :)

Don't they just look adorable with their curls an I can imagine a pink bow in the middle of the hair is adorable?

Now we have decided on the perfect dog for us...

Getting Prepared For A Puppy!!

A Border Collier!!

A dog to have fun with, train up to do all kind of fun tricks. 

How cool would it be learning her to do something for a showground event where you see all kinds of talented dogs?
Once she has grown big she can also become my new running partner.

On the lookout now for that special dog.

I have brought her some things, got her name picked (Mollie) we just need to buy her now!!.

Do we choose Blue Merel, red and brown, tricolour or a traditional black and white one!?! I know as soon as we see her she will be the right choice.

I am now preparing my house to be puppy friendly. Buying everything we will need for her.

How hard work can a puppy be?
