Over the weekend we hopped in my little Mini and drove the 3 hour drive to Hull, East Yorkshire. We didn't go there on holiday, and we actually only spent an hour or so there before hopping back in the car and driving all the way back home again. We made this special trip to visit with a litter of 4 week old Dalmatian puppies, in the hope that we might meet the latest and furriest addition to our family.
In a few short weeks Leo and I begin a new life, we move into our brand new home and start an entirely new chapter just the two of us, well... the two of us and our Dalmatian addition, Lux. I am pleased to report that we found the little puppy of our dreams, and we cannot wait to welcome him into our family team at the beginning of August!
I set my heart on a Dalmatian months ago, I have been spending a lot of my spare time looking into the different breeds, but as I wanted a jogging companion to eventually join me on my cardio jaunts, it meant I needed a Dog who could keep up with me (I get the feeling I will be trying to keep up with him!), I did a lot of research into each of the different breeds before narrowing my sights on just one breed, and originally I loved the idea of having a Husky. The more I read up on them though, the more un-realistic the idea became, and I found myself back at the drawing board.
I started looking through all of the different breeds with puppies for sale, so that I could see all of the different Dog's, but none of them really captured my attention, until I came across the Dalmatian of course! Since then I have spent every passing day hunting out the online advertisements for Dalmatian pups, and I have to say that they are few and far between in the Worcestershire area. I have been very reserved when looking, because I want to make sure that we get a puppy who comes from a loving and responsible background. I don't want to line the pockets of a puppy farm, I want him to come from a family home where they have been completely spoiled rotten and from a family who want the best for each of their puppies new homes.
Lux is a complete little stunner, and he has already demonstrated that he is going to be a welcomed handful through his inquisitive nature and cheeky disposition.
Lux is one of 10 puppies and they are all absolutely beautiful, but Lux had that special something about him that drew us straight in, and it really was love at first sight. With all of the excitement that Leo and I are both sharing about bringing Lux home, we are really pleased to announce that we have teamed up with the lovely people over at Rosewood Pet Products and we will be bringing you monthly pupdates on our gorgeous little Lux, and sharing our favourite (essential!) products that will help us navigate the first couple of days and months as we settle into life with our new pup.
Rosewood Pet Products have absolutely everything you could possibly need to get you started with your puppy, and the range grows with your dog seeing you right through to adulthood and beyond, the selection is just incredible! Each month I will be sharing some rather gorgeous snaps of Lux, giving you the low down of the mischief he has been causing, how he is settling in, and showing you a selection of products that he has been loving since the last update!
It's going to be puppy spam over load over here, and I cannot wait to introduce you all to him properly over the coming weeks and months ahead. For now though, I anticipate collecting Lux the first week in August, which means I need to get my act together with the house. We collect the keys on the 22nd of July (Fingers crossed!) and that gives me 2 weeks tops to get the house completely sorted and ready for Lux's arrival.
Wish me luck guys, it's going to be a busy few months!
