Introducing Lolla - my new puppy.
Her mother was a Blenheim CKCSpaniel and her Dad a Red Miniature Poodle. Her fur seems to get thicker and longer every day. She is 8 weeks old and weighs just 2kg. And she is completely irrisistable - As you can clearly see.
She is such a good girl and learns so quickly. I have only had her for a week and she already comes bolting when I call her name. Well, who wouldn't really, when the reward is a lot of fussing and a fabulous tummy rub!
So this is the reason that I have been off the air for a while. That and school holidays, visitors etc.
As Lolla is an 'inside' dog I have to watch her all the time she is awake to avoid too many 'accidents'. She just loves going outside too and will go out and sit on the verandah just looking across to the cattle next door. Haha a real country girl. When Harry is out 'training' with the hunting dummy, Lolla follows him around and races from point to point after him. She occasionally gets the dummy and chews it furiously or growls ferociously over it. Hahaha very cute.

Kanga is a wee tad miffed. I made the choice of a pup over a kitten as I thought she would be less ticked off with another species. She has made herself somewhat scarce and seems to have concentrated on her hunting skills. I saw her gobbling down a mouse under the decking yesterday - Oh YUK! She still comes in wanting her special cuddles and smooches, although less frequently. I hope she adjusts soon.
