What's it all about, Alfie?

A new member of the family joined us on Thursday. We have been worried about Ollie fretting, so we have been looking around for a suitable companion to replace old Jeb.

After a near disaster trying to buy a puppy online - I am pretty sure it was a narrow escape from a scam - we found a pup advertised in a local paper. Surprisingly the breeders lived less than a kilometre away - probably not surprising in a large town, but quite a coincidence in a town as small as Lenswood - like we have one shop/post office, a church, a Cold Store, a Bowling Club, a CFS unit and not much more.

So a ltlle black scrap of fluff has joined us. So cute. His dad is a rough haired Jack Russell and his mother a Jack Russell and Chihuahua cross. This little fellow looks more Chihuahua than JR, but I am sure he will be bigger as both parents are JR size.

But Ollie does not like him one little bit!!!!  After two days he is just putting up with the puppy as long as it does not get too close to me. I have no doubt the pup will win him over, but Ollie is not giving in gracefully.

We had a real time of it choosing a name, even with the help of my Facebook friends, but eventually Don decided on Alfie or Alfonzo for formal occasions.

Loves sleeping on Don's boot

So cute!
