The New Edition


Yes, the Jordan household echoes to the patter of little feet once again!   BUT, before you all jump to conclusions, I should tell you that the patter comes from 4 little paws.   YES, we have got ourselves another dog, one that was saved from certain death by Dog Rescue Newcastle.   We have called him Barney!


He is such a great dog, although we think he may grow a ‘little’  bigger that what we first thought.   We were told he was a cross between a Kelpie and a Staffordshire Terrier but, there does not appear to be an ounce of Kelpie in him whatsoever!   After careful consideration [and looking into books about dog breeds] we have come to that conclusion that he is more than likely a Rhodesian Ridgeback crossed with something!

It’s a bit of a rude shock to have a puppy in the house again!   Things need to get put up or they will be chewed beyond recognition!   He has also had a few accidents in the house although his toilet training is coming along and he is picking it up really fast.    He has grown in the two weeks that we have had him and we are really not sure how big he will get but he has long lanky legs and his paws seem to be bigger now then when we first saw him!

Our other dog Kirra is now 14 years old and cannot stand a bar of him.    He will bound up to her barking at her to come and play, but all she does is growl at him.   He is gradually learning to ignore her I think!

Not much more to add really.   I am back into the painting again; just finished our ensuite and tomorrow will start on the walk in robe and then the main bedroom.   It’s taking its time but will certainly be worth it when it is all finished. 

Have had a wonderful day today.   The sky is overcast and for most of the afternoon there has been this heavy drizzle falling.   The day was wonderfully cool and Kim and I were able to do a little gardening.   Kim is in the kitchen at the moment getting dinner ready.   Roast Chicken and veges – it smells wonderful!

Hope you’re all well
