This is our new boy – we bring him home next Saturday. We decided to be pro-active rather than reactive with our thinking.
Both Elsie and Freida are not young anymore and whilst they have many years ahead of them we felt it would be good to introduce a puppy. We have always had rescued dogs but this time we decided we wanted to be part of the puppy’s development – both physically and emotionally.
We have been looking for a while and knew we would sense when the right one came along – and he did today.
We had planned to look at 3 pups in various places Northallerton, Bradford and Lincoln. We didn’t get past Northallerton. The parents of the litter showed great calmness and tranquillity and the pups were free to explore and play – which they did with confidence.
Freida LOVES other dogs and we feel she will be a great mother to Bing. We feel she will form a bond and will be a good companion.
We decided we had to find a German name for new boy on the block, so as we were having lunch Bing Crosby came on the radio singing “White Christmas”. I said the name “Bing” to Jon who said it was perfect as Bing are a German carburettor manufacturer! Well what do you expect from a precision engineer! lol!
I am warning you well in advance my blog will be displaying ENDLESS photo and stories of Bing the new Nesbitt German Shepherd boy – so watch this space and please don’t yawn too loudly! We don't want Bing’s sleeping sessions being interrupted!
