Since we have got the puppy we decided to join the National Trust.
We have Lyme Park right on our doorstep and it has been great to socialise Red with lots of other dogs and children.
Dogs are allowed on leads in the children’s play area, which is useful as I’m trying to teach her not to jump up at people.
She has been easy to train so far (I’m probably speaking too soon!) She doesn’t run off and is brilliant off the lead.
The question now is do we go for another baby whilst we have a puppy? If I had my time again, we should have had a baby first. I’m not sure how hard it is walking a dog with a baby?
Baby number four is not set in stone but I thought the dog might make me think ‘no three is enough!’ But to be honest it has been fine so far (now the pooing and weeing everywhere has calmed down).
I’m not sure what will happen in 2018. We have a few exciting things in the pipeline but I will reveal those once they happen!
