I like to research things before making any big decisions, so after the cat took off I decided that we should seek a more appropriate pet for Imogen. This meant getting something not too big. Something she could cuddle, snuggle, pat, brush, do it's hair, feed and play with that wouldn't snap or bite. Something not too small and yappy or big and boisterous.
Puppy farms are revolting I wouldn't want to support one, nor did I want to make a mortgage repayment on a dog. I searched the lost dogs home and even downloaded an App to find a dog. None were 'blue' which is suitable for young children.
Eventually I posted a wanted ad on the ozdoggy website. Getting a dog that needs rehoming is special, the previous owners are usually reluctant to give up the pet, they want to know about you and pick between all the other people asking for their loved pooch. But Peppa's family just knew we were right for their dog.
Today we went to the airport and collected the new addition to our family, Peppa arrived from Northern NSW after a big day in doggy air travel.
But she was soon cuddled, fed, walked, tickled and loved so much, I know she is in the right place.
