Meet Milo. Small, round and gorgeous.


Look who's arrived at our house.
Name of Milo.
Howled throughout the whole of the first night. Thought that would have to return the little blighter.
Slept until 5 am this morning, which was a vast improvement.
Children are totally in love with him. Well, who WOULDN'T be?!
Youngest says things like,
'It's all different now, Mummy. All changed. The cat's food is Not On The Floor anymore.'
And sighs deeply, as if all the weight of the world were on him.
But this IS the biggest change in his life. Huge.
And we are all adjusting to the strangeness of a new member of the family who pees everywhere and bites little holes in our shoes.
But OH! We love him.
Hope you do too.

Cute!

Now you have another family member to tell stores about. Looking forward to it.

Oh I am so broody at the moment and would love a dog or a cat, since ours died last year. But I promised Mad Dad that we would hold off until after Easter

Oh what's not to love - he's just gorgeous!

He's utterly gorgeous even if he does chew holes in your shoes!!!!

Anybody who doesn't immediately love a puppy is violently emotionally impaired.
Does he have Puppy Scent all over him, and Puppy Breath? Does he make little baby grunt sounds when he plays and when he sleeps?
I could eat him with a spoon.

Lots of opportunity for wee and poo stories there! Oh, and he is perfect.

He is GORGEOUS!

My children keep pestering me to get a dog (or a new brother/sister for them, but I've ruled that out!) If all puppies were like Milo ... and perhaps stayed that size and cuteness ... it would be an easy decision!

If you feed it, it will get bigger!

London City Mum said...

Am resisting showing this to the cherubs as they will pester me evermore to come and visit!

Fabulous addition.

Oh. GORGEOUS. Good luck - ours arrived in November, and we're JUST out the other side of the wees-everywhere-eats-wallpaper phase.

Liz said...

Cute! I want one.

Tatersmama said...

Awwww... Little Milo is absolutely gorgeous! And just think of all the opportunites you'll have to share your toilet humour! (joking, of course) ;)
Well, no.. not really!

Puppy breath. Is there anything better? *sighs*

Oh. My. God.
This is hard work!! Poos, wees, chews, stealing, howling, demanding, TOTALLY time wasting, small bundle of fluff. Crikey. Sometimes think to self, WHAT HAVE I DONE?? and the rest of the time am thankful. He really is adorable and part of the family already. But I can so see how people who have had a 'cute' idea of a puppy would be making other arrangements right now.
No poo stories yet...(it's endless poo but not particularly post inspiring.) Sorry YET again about general comment. Hardly time to sit to write this without dashing off to inspect potential damage. x

He is beautiful. Animals can be so like people - like when your children attend nursery school for the first time, Lots of tears when they start on their first day and you wonder if they're ever going to settle and then hey presto, they're loving it! Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog.

he is beautiful. We are thinking of getting a small dog. I don't have a clue about them but fancy a try now that I don't work.

Mrs B will be most jealous, she has designs on having a doggy pup. I am reminded of the RSPCA seasonal message - a dog is not just for Christmas, there should be enough left for sandwiches on Boxing Day.

He is edible! If he ever fancies a holiday in London, let me know....

We had two yellow labs. This brought back such wonderful memories. They are such good dogs. I love the name Milo!
