I thought it was time to introduce you all to the newest member of the family. This is Gretel she is a Cavalier King Charles puppy who is now 13 weeks old.
So not only have I been ill but I have also been wrestling with three feeds a day, lots of small pools and parcels on the carpet, and trying to stop her from biting with her little needle teeth!
The chest infection has not been helped by the early mornings and puppy potty training!
All my female puppies have been named after roles I have played in operas. I had run out of roles except the witch in Hansel and Gretel, I could not call her 'witch ' so I opted for the next best name and Gretel was born!
I am hoping she is not going to be a high soprano!!!
