Fin goes to work ...

I don't think Fin likes work!  But then I guess 10 weeks is a little bit soon to be sent out to earn a biscuit or two.
The studio is apparently a fascinating place,  as its great to wander round and pee on, but not a place to sit and behave when I am trying to work. 
I put a large cage out the back in the garden, but he yapped the whole time and scared the horses,  so I bought him in and then he scared the customers.  I am sure we will find a suitable compromise soon,  but he needs a bit of practice and I may need to supply ear plugs to all my visitors.  But he loved all the fuss he got from all the fellow crafters and I am sure they will all be helping with his upbringing very soon ( not sure they know that yet!)
Then Big brother Christopher came to visit and wear him out,  actually I am not really sure who wore who out but they both ended up flopped on the floor.

Dads are also fun to play with and when out in the garden Fin  is very bouncy.

He had a visit to the vets today,  for his second lot of jabs. I was working so Steve had to take him,  I don't think he minded though as all the nurses wanted to fuss him, Fin that is not Steve!!!!.

We had wondered if he had mites or fleas as he scratches a lot but he doesn't ( phew) but he has scurf and needs a good bath.  He also got chipped so if we take him to a supermarket he might beep going through the scanners,  but I don't think we will try that, just yet.

He seems to be settling well,  he his helping with gardening, picking up leaves and eating them and when dad puts weeds in the trug Fin takes them out again.  But he's not good at housework as the hoover is a very scary thing for a little dog.  But as its only his first week we will let him off.....


  1. He looks adorable! We got our dog from a rescue centre 3 years ago and he too was afraid of the hoover (he was very jumpy at lots of things, in fact). But now he's quite nonchalant about it. I'm sure Fin will soon settle in - being a pup makes a big difference, I should think. He looks like a little lamb leaping about in your garden!

  2. If I just replace 'Fin' with 'Abi' you've just written exactly what we're going through! Fun but tiring for all! Love the bounces too - Fin is such a sweetie!
