Minnie the Moocher


There is a song being sung at every available opportunity, in our household. Call it a kind of fanfare for the expected arrival of our fine furry friend.. Minnie the Moocher. It is impossible not to think up a host of nicknames for this beautiful little girl who will be coming to live with us in just over a week's time. Minnie the Minx, Minnie Moo.. Minnie Ha Ha.. Minnie the Moocher.. and there will be many more names in time.


Pickles the cat has his own set of names for his imminent sibling.. but probably not wise to mention them on this blog. He is mightily unimpressed by the arrival of a dog bed, crate and a new set of toys that have little cat appeal. I mean... what good is a tennis ball and a chew rope!


 Minnie is now seven weeks old and we have been very fortunate indeed to have known her from 10 days of age when she hadn't yet opened her eyes or even barely resembled a Border Terrier.

So here is our gal.. full of fun and mischief and already loved so much!

Oh, she's adorable! I love the name Minnie ... when my daughter Millie was little she called herself Minnie ... her nickname is Millie Moo. Bet your new life in the country is fabulous ... will be complete with a new puppy!

Hi Michele
He is a little darling. Bet you can hardly wait till he actually comes home with you. What a great year you are having - new home, new pup.

She looks absolutely gorgeous Michele. I'm not really a dog person but I could probably be won round by such a cutie. S would love a dog but I'm fighting it for now, especially with the baby imminent. He even had a dream the other night that we got one on the same day that I gave birth! Maybe in a year or two.

Hmmmm, I think that your resident kittie is going to need a bit of reassurance that this sweet young beauty Minnie is not really going to steal everyone's heart away.

What a face! xo

Sweet!
My lovely Nan used to breed border terriers...I remember from my childhood, piles of little pups by her fire on a blanket in her living room...

See you soon,
