Let me introduce you all to a new addition to The Mad House. This is Alvin, our Bichon Frise Puppy.
He has been part of our family for just over two weeks now and he seems to have been with us forever. He has such a good temperament and we all adore him.
Maxi has been scared of dogs for a long time and we have been working through that with the help of Buddy, who belongs to Frugal Family and for the last year or so the boys have been pestering for a dog of their own.
We have talked about the responsibility that a dog entails and they had been showing us that they could be responsible dog owners. He has had both sets of jabs and been microchipped. Maxi is responsible for feeding and taking him out for his excercise etc on a morning before school and after school. Both the boys have been grooming Alvin (with our help) and as from next week we will be bal eto take him out for walks, which we are really looking forward too.
I am hoping that having him around means that I make time to get out and exercise (no excuses) and I am already loving his company during the day.
I think I am a dog person after all.
