So at the time of writing the last puppy update, we’d got as far as deciding that we wanted a flat-coated retriever…well things have developed rapidly since then.
We found a fantastic breeder and have scored ourselves a pup of the highest pedigree. In fact, his grandfather, ‘Gibson’, is a former international flat-coat champion no less.
Knowing that we definitely were getting a male dog meant we could finally decide on a name. I campaigned hard for ‘Scraps’, but ultimately failed thanks to April’s insistence that he have a more human name. So in the end, we settled on ‘Todd’!
Todd comes home on March 3rd, when he is 7 weeks old and ready to leave his mother, but we did go and visit the entire litter and parents, Jazz and Peggy, a couple of weeks ago.
And now, thanks to the miracle of digital photography, you can meet them too:
