Operation Dog

As there is much in life currently winding me up, I thought it would be good to focus on something that is bringing a promise of joy (as well as a modest dose of fear/sanity questioning).

Tomorrow should, all being well, see us collect a new member of the household: Gibson the Bernese Mountain Dog. It hasn’t been an entirely straight forward process, but it’s not been as bad as we feared either. I think I’m mostly more excited than I am nervous about breaking him/ruining his character. Although if we manage to do everything in all the books we’ve read, and implement all the advice we’ve been given, I suspect we’ll have either Super Dog, or the most confused and schizoid animal in the world.

Time will tell.
