I made you a bed, and everything.*

I realised today, after a few questions, that I haven’t posted about our puppy news. This is probably because it’s not good news. The litter from which we were to have a pup didn’t make it to term. It’s sad, and nobody really knows why the mum lost her pups: on the bright side, she’s being retired from breeding, and we’re now looking forward to a pup in November-ish from Mitzi’s sister. So our dog will be my parents’ dog’s niece. All in the family…

* ‘making’ may be defined as using a friend’s old cutter quilt to make a sort of pillow case, and sticking it in a kennel. What? It’s for a dog, not Elizabeth Taylor.
