My new love

Meet Lottie. Our new dog. I can say that, heck I can shout it out; OUR NEW DOG!!!
We've not had a dog before, I thought we would be a cat only family forever, but something started tugging at the heart strings last year and I knew when we moved we would get a dog. I thought we would go for the Golden Retriever or an Airdale or perhaps a Border Collie but no, we are now the proud owners of a Shar Pei.
She was found wandering at the foreshore and was taken to the local pound and never claimed, how sad is that? Her time was nearly up, I was watching and waiting, another couple who already have a Shar Pei adopted her to avoid the inevitable but sadly the 2 dogs did not get along so when they called us a few hours later, I was thrilled. Lottie is aprox. 5 months old, absolutely adorable, her wrinkly face, twisty tail, brush fur; she has the cutest expressions. And she is fantastic to walk on the lead, toilet trained, great with the kids and cats, (Muffin has let her know he is boss and Little Cat is mad as), she can sit, she doesn't bark; shes just so happy to be here with us, and we are so happy to have her. Welcome Lottie xx
