Regular readers will remember the puppy drama that unfolded over Easter week.
So, one pup will be coming to join us at home. Safe to say we've picked the boldest, naughtiest and funniest of the bunch- although come to think of it, I think he picked us in the moment three weeks ago when he sat down in front of me, looked up and wagged his tail.
There really was one heartbeat between "We can't possibly have a dog" and the deal being sealed.
He is a Border Terrier with a Kennel Club name that is long, posh and impossible for me to remember, and so has been known as Alastair Darling since he was born due to his glorious eyebrows. He shall of course be known simply as Alastair, or occasionally "c'mere, pup."
We're very excited to be welcoming him home this weekend, and I can't wait for the first walk in the rain. No, really.
