Given that there are only nine of my type of dog in this country, can you believe that I got an email yesterday from one who it turns out lives about 8 miles from here. I am so excited. I’m going to meet them soon. After everything that has happened in the last few weeks I just can’t wait. On top of that my sister Esther is hoping to have a litter of puppies soon and maybe, just maybe one of my nieces will be able to come to live with me. I can’t think of anything I’d like more, except of course to still have Bella but then I know I can’t have that. I’ve been thinking about all the sad bits of not having Bella around. It means I have to go into kennels on my own for a couple of short stays in the summer. I’m just going to have to be brave and not miss everyone too much. It also means that I won’t have a companion to take when we go on holiday. I wonder if I could find another doggy friend to invite along and whether my Mistress and Master would mind if I did. I suppose I only really know Hector here, there hasn’t been time to get to know the dogs in my training class just yet. I keep telling my Mistress that I want to go to see Elvis in Belgium, but it takes so much time to get there that with having to be around to take James to school, there isn’t really the opportunity except in holidays.

My Mistress is trying to sell some things on Ebay. It’s quite funny really because the amount of time it has taken her just to list them all, she’d have been better to have given them away. Although to be honest, even I am finding it exciting to see what bids she’s got.
