Mnay of you know that I have been actively looking to get a dog for the last couple of months with out much luck and have recived email scams etc and the type I was looking for were so highly price £500 ($1000) Well today I saw a kennels that had a stray that needing rehoming, well I knew she wasn't for me but thought I would ring them to see if there were any others they had or if not would they accept me as the RSPCA wouldn't because I had a young son, well it turns out that the one I felt I couldn't home had suprised them and had 7 puppies yesterday, so in three weeks time I will go to view to choose and then in a couple of months time will introduce on of these pups into my home. I have uploaded a pic of the mum for you to see. Nova said one would appear and I am prepared to wait, all I have to pay is the rescue fee. I am really excited. So to make this a discussion, when and how did you obain your four legged friend? Have you ever had a dog? What is your favoutite breed? These will be Soringer Spaniel x? LOL. Do you think the mum is lovely?

I have had many dogs and they were usually rescued. My last one, and my best friend, went to Heaven 2 years ago where he's waiting for me to join him. We now have our cat, Morgana, (she's my avatar) she was rescued when some ppl my Niece knew moved away and left her alone at just a few weeks old. She was so skinny and tiny when we got her but with lots of love and attention she's turned into a beautiful cat on the outside and she's always been beautiful cat on the inside. I don't know what I'd do without her. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Hi Twoey, Your cat is adorable, how could anyone just abandon animals, they becaome part of my family, we have two cats and my very first cat I got from a rescue centre. I have always had dogs too and after my last two said know more because of the heartache when they leave us but it has been a few years now and I am ready to welcome a new one into our home. Ellie :D

My Niece was friends with the little girl of the family that had the kittens. They had the mama cat and 6 kittens including Morgi. They moved away and animal control caught the mama and 5 of the kittens...but not Morgi. My Niece saw her and took her home but my brother is not fond of cats. She brought her to me and she's been with us ever since. I remember when we got her she could lay out in the palm of my hand she was so tiny. She's a big girl now and hopefully will be with us for a long time. Here's a little piece of trivia I learned recently: In ancient Egyptian times cats were considered guardians of the underworld, keeping souls at rest so they couldn't return...they were often mummified and placed in with the deceased to keep their spirits from returning. At the same time dogs were considered guardians of the Pharaoh's, the Kings. They were often mummified and placed (along with the mummified cat) with the deceased king to guard him in the afterlife. Just thought it was interesting and thought I'd share it. [b]**AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~[/b]

Ziggy our new puppy born 18th July 2008........... - Ziggy our new puppy born 18th July 2008
Hi Jill, I was just so excited to have found one but this morning I phoned the woman with some questions and she was quite shirty and said that it was a definate as lots of people on the list but I think she has discovered they are all spaniel rather than spaniel cross and is going to sell them so I bought home a little collie dog earlier today called Ziggy, born 18th July 2008. Sybil the cat has braved coming in but Wilfred has scappered upstairs out of the way and Ziggy is now asleep in his bed already bless. I have uploaded a pic of him so you can see. Like having a new baby so will have my work cut out for a while eh! I remember you saying Reggie was spaniel in another discussion too. It wasn't to be for us but I'm sure Ziggy will be just as good a friend to my son.

Those are great dogs! I'm happy for you. I have a puggle and just adore him. But my favorite breed is Rottweilers. They are big and really sweet dogs if trained properly. They are protective and I like that about them. I'll be getting one shortly I hope! :)

Oh how beautiful, all dogs are beautiful but I must be honest I love spaniels, they are such gentle dogs, i hope you have many years of fun and love with you new puppy, in my last few weeks of dog sitting i bought a new lead as I think I will continue walking him as i am having so much fun but this lead is a good thought for you maybe, it has metal loos and a clasp on each end which means I can tur it into a long lead, short lead, have two dogs on it or wrap the leqad around a pole when i go int a shop, I think a great idea for dog owners...

Hi Lilaclady, I have just commented on the pic of the lead, that looks a great idea so will look out for one. I am just so excited now.

Aw she looks beautiful! sounds like it was fate that you were to end up with one of these little pups! I've never had a dog, but if i was to have one i'd get a king charles cavalier, they are usually really friendly, and not too big, am a bit nervous of dogs so i couldn't have a big one! lol I have a cat and i got him from the rspca, i knew as soon as i saw him that i had to have him, he was running up the wire cage to look at the people walking past outside, he'd been there months, nobody wanted him because he was a big fat cat and they all wanted kittens - i couldn't be without him now, the only man i can rely on in my life!! lol bet you're so excited, hope you manage to choose one, i bet you'll want to take them all home!! xxx

Hi Munchkin, Thanks, I think she looks lovely too so I am sure her pups will be, I will wait patiently until I can get to see them. I woul love to give her a home too but because of my young son and the cats I need to introduce a little one and the mum is very boisterious and used to being a woring dog too. MY first cat when I got married was from the RSPCA, we went to get a black lab if one was available as that is what I wanted but fell in love with this great big fat black cat already named Blackie, almost the size of a lab, he was huge. Fell in love with him the same as you did yours and he had a wonderful pampered life with us. You saying about wanting to take them all home, I really would if I could but not I can't so the sensible logical side o me will have to kick in eh! I will have to do some sums but feel financially one will be enough because on the insurances, vet bills for all the jabs etc, but we'll see. Huggles. Ellie :D

You're gonna have to get that logical side going ellie!! I reckon pupies are pretty hard work, i don't think i could cope with one let alone two, especially when combined with children and cats, way too much for me, you must be superwoman!! That's the thing, it does get expensive, we always need to make sure we can afford to look after them properly! Your cat sounds like mine, he's huge, but lovely and cuddly, possibly the most spoilt cat i've ever seen, but well worth it!! Geez, since when did i become a cat lady!?!? lol xxx

I had four cats at once before so if anyone is a mad cat woman it is me LOL. I'll have to use my secret hidden super power to keep them all in check. I have taken all costs etc into consideration, with the cats now it is just their annual boosters as both have been neutured and I have never had a problem with fleas ever as I put an amythest crystal into their drinking water, that works for dogs also. Once the initial innoculations etc are over and the pet insurance it will then be yearly check and booster the same as the cats really. I am so pleased you homed an older cat as so many get left there don't they.

Good morning ellie, Whenever we had our four legged friends, they someone have showed up at our house, or found them. The only we actually got at the animal shelter was Frosty. It's good to get a pet from the animal shelter, first because they can fixed and you don't have to worry about the having their own pups/kittens. That's nice of you go saved a pup. I myself love cats, they take care of themselves, and you don't really have to worry much, they know where to use the restroom. I can't see his pic, but will look for it on the main site.

Hi Kaleegirl, The photo is at the top of the discussion so I can't understand why you can't see it but someone else said that as well, but for once I did remember to upload LOL. The mum is adorable so I am sure the pups will be too. I will have to wait patiently now before I can see them and then again until they are ready to leave their mum but will give me plenty of time to prepare and to sort out with the vets and insurance plans etc eh! I have my cats too which I love to bits but only have two now instead of four so room for a puppy and both cats very socialable to other animals including dogs. Huggles. Ellie :D

When i was replying to your post the pic didn't show up, until after. She is a beautiful mum. and I'm sure the her babies will just as beautiful. Now, I have a question for you. Which one are you going to pick, seeing that they may all look alike. I've heard that one that goes up to you first should be the one. I know it's going to be hard.

Hi Msedge, Well there has been a change of plans since I posted this and instead of the spinger I now have myself a border collie called Ziggy who will be eight weeks old tomorrow and having his first injections bless. He is already part of the family and very intelligent. I am not able to be on the Lot as much as normal as having a puppy is like having a new born LOL so pretty busy right now but will try to play catch up at some stage soon. Ellie :D

New here to Mylot & thought what a great discussion to start with...PUPPIES! Congratulations on the new puppy...it seems it was definitely meant to be for you and your family. And I'm so happy you are rescuing a little critter - sometimes you find the best "friends" through a simple rescue. We have 2 labrador retrievers & 2 mini dachshunds. My male lab was a Mother's Day gift from my family & our female doxie was given to me 4 years ago by my sister-in-law from her dog's first litter. The two seemed like Mutt & Jeff and were inseparable. My female lab was given to us 3 years ago from a family member that could no longer keep her because she is so energetic & they had a sick baby at home. And lastly came my male doxie...another gift from my sister-in-law's second litter almost 2 years ago. (I can't say no to those eyes) Since I have 2 of each kind and have been raised with dogs (all breeds) since being in the womb, I would still pick the Labrador Retriever as my favorite breed...loyal, loving, and BIG! My sister has spaniels & they are just as sweet as my labs...love 'em and they'll love ya back a million times over! Good luck with your new addition!

Hi jewl1126, Well as you are brand new a very big warm welcome to you. I hope you have fun here in discussions and meeting lots of new friends. I have been lucky enough to meet with two I have become close to here online and they are as wonderful in real life as they are here. I am honoured that you chose my discussion to start with, thank you. Right back to discussion. Labradors are my favourites too but that is because my two boys were like my babies even when one became like an cantankerous old man in old age and the other remained forever young bless. Spaniels are great too though and I am sure these spaniels crosses will be just as loving and adorable. Thank you for sharing, my daughter wanted a dachshund but the prices that were being asked were ridiculous. I am so excited but will have to patiently wait now until they are ready to leave their mum. Ellie :D

Welcome to myLaugh Jewl. I thought this would be a good place to jump in and tell you about what we found under the smoke shack today. Kittens! Four of them! I think they are about 2 or 3 weeks old and cute as heck. They all look like my guy with the perfect Main C00n (Lol, myLot won't let me say that word) "M" on their foreheads. He's fixed so I don't think he's the father. We took them around and showed all our friends today. They got lots of big smiles and love. I think we better spread the word and start trying to find homes for them.

How fantastic Ellie - I know how excited you must be and if the pup is as gorgeous as the mum then she/he will be lovely! I have had a few dogs in my life, one I inherited from my Mum , he was a rescue dog another we got from a friends litter and he was brilliant! Now my four legged friend is feline rather than canine and is a recue cat! We got her at 6 weeks old, she had been hand reared after being abandoned in a bin liner with her brother and sister a mile away from the SSPCA centre. She is 10 now - my goodness the time goes quickly! I can't wait to hear all about the pup you choose and how they settle in! Huggles! xxx

I have two cats also and have spoken to them both and one walked away with he hump and the other came up to me and moewed so he is okay with it. I said he would still be my baby too. So I am even trying to get the gets used to the idea in advance to, what am I like. How can anyone just dump kittens like that, that is so cruel.

Hi Ellie. The mother dog looks gorgeous so I can imagine what your dear little puppy will look like. You have time to think whether you want a female or a male puppy and buy equipment like a bed and feeding bowls. Springer Spaniels are a lovely breed, usually great around children and fairly easy to train. There are a few of them that walk along the path near my home. Your son will soon be loving towards your new dog so that will be fantastic. I left work on Friday evening in Kent and traveled up to Lancashire where I stayed in a bed and breakfast. On Saturday I got a taxi out to a Poodle breeder. I saw the mother dog and she had a black and white marble effect sort of coat. Wow! Then I got to hold my adorable little puppy, a white with black patches little bundle of joy. I took Secret Party Circle home in a box after paying £395. I ended up keeping that name because it suits him so much. That was in November 2004. In August 2005 we moved to North Somerset. I got up really early to get from North Somerset to Essex in one day. I met the breeder, the mother dog and my new puppy at a train station. She was a tiny black poodle. I paid the lady £450 and took my little beautiful puppy home to meet Secret. At first they sat at opposite ends of my sofa then they became best friends. I decided to call her Magic May Flower. My dogs are Miniature Poodles and I have many favorite breeds like all Poodles, Red Setters and Cocker Spaniels. Take care. Maxine.

Hi Maxine, even for the pups you travelled, you just so love travelling don't you. My ex-husband learnt to walk from his pet poddle, I think they are great as they don't have fur so good for people with allegies too. Well the pup I am getting is a spaniel but don't know crossed with what, will probably be able to tell more when I go to visit in three weeks. I am at least going to have lots of time to prepare for this new arrival like you say. I am going to check on my local freecycle before paying out fortunes though and will probably crochet it its own special blanket too. I have always had dogs in the past but I will see which pup we fall in love with. Ellie :D

Hi Ellie...A young friend of mine stole my Lucy to give to me. The boyfriend of a girl my friend worked with had got her from a shelter before Christmas. He lived with a group of young people in a house near a main 5 ways intersection. Lucy was Cassy then and aloud to do as she liked (no discipline or training) and when she was naughty or did something wrong, she was kicked or thrown outside. She would have been a very young puppy we figured out. Anyway, the novelty of the og must have worn off because Lucy was only getting fed weetbix by the girlfriend when she went to visit. My young friend drove passed the house daily and would often see Lucy out near the road. Lisa rang me and told me about the pup and I said I would take her if they didn't want her. Like you, I had been looking for another dog for months and having no luck. Meanwhile, the girlfriend ended up in hospital having her wisdom teeth removed. Lisa was worried the pup might be starving so we decided she would just go and get her. That's what happened. Lucy was very, very hungry when Lisa grabbed her and we got her the next day. She was skittish and nervous. She eats like a horse and loves to play ball. She is not at all aggressive and is still afraid if she is yelled at. She seems to prefer men to me ....she will go and be friendly with a guy rather than be loyal to me even though I look after her and feed and groom her. I've managed to train her to "come" and "sit" but she won't "stay" and she will keep going if she gets out of the yard and intent on sniffing out an adventure. I trained her to walk on a lead with a halti and she doesn't need it now. She loves going in the car and hates being tied up. If I chain her she gets in a tangle so she cannot move. I've never mistreated her but whatever happened to her before we got her had some strong effects on her. I love most dogs, not fighting dogs. I've never heard of a soringer spaniel...did you mean "springer" spaniel? They are lovely looking dogs. Good luck with yours.xx

Hey there ellie! Congratulations on finding a puppy. The first dog I had was found by my 12 year old son who was around 9 or 10 at the time. Being that she was found, we didn't know the breed but it was a toy dog (small breed). We had her for 2 weeks and then one day she was hit by a car and you would have thought that it was one of my children because I cried so much. I fell in love with Peaches (that's what we named her) instantly. The second dog we had was given to us by my brother and it was a hound/rotweiler mix. Her name is Scrappy, named by my 12 year old. We had her since she was a couple of months old but being that we aren't really supposed to have dogs in the complex where I live, we had to give her up because of her loud bark. The neighbors were complaining about her. Now that was harder than Peaches because we had her longer. Now we have a male dog by the name of Oreo, named by my 13 year old son and he is a small toy dog who barely barks but when he does, it's not too loud. They say 3 strikes you're out or 3 times the charm so we'll see. Either way, this is the last dog that I will get. Take care ellie and God Bless!

Hi Linda, Oh poor Peaches that is sad indeed. Shame the neighbours reported you, you can get anti barking devices now to stop them, Oreo is a great name but why get another if the neighbours are like that as you are risking your home. Thankfully his bark isn't loud enough to annoy. Ziggy is lovely and we all love him already. I said eight years ago I would never get another one after my two labs went but I felt ready again to bring one into our home. God bless and huggles. Ellie :D

The picture of the dog is so adorable! It will be so fun to get a new puppy! Aren't you the lucky one? Glad you find this opportunity. I do not have any pets, except for all our plants and flowers outdoors (guess they don't count). Anyhoo, my family had a dog when I was a child, a beagle. And it was so much fun to play with. Queenie was a very sweet dog. I'm not sure what my favorite dog breed would be now, but labradors, just from what I've read about them, would probably be at the top of the list. Also, I like those dogs that have alot of hair hanging in their faces and are quite large, a St. Bernard, I think it's called. I wouldn't want to own one, though, because I don't want to take care of a dog at this time in my life. But for you, it sounds fabulous!

Hi PearlGrace, Thank you, I think she is adorable too so I am sure the puppies will be. My childhood dog was a collie/alsation cross which I found bizarre really as my mum was savaged and had her face rebuilt after being attacked by an alsation and yet she still bought one into the home and he was great. He used to lay in front of the fire with one of our rabbits. I had two labrodors until about eight years ago and they were my babies so I am now ready to introduce another in our home. I have never had a spaniel but they seem to be great with children and other animals too. Huggles. Ellie :D

I was 17 when I first saw this tiny puppy roaming the streets, I knew instantly it was a stray and I tried to befriend it, however it was very scared and run off. I did not see it again for a fair few weeks after that and when I next bumped into it I saw a man being really cruel to it. He was throwing house bricks at it, it was only a pup and it did not deserve to be treated like that. I kicked off at him and told him I would throw housebricks at him, see how he liked it. I told him that I would get the dog off his property. Basically his dog had puppies, he did not want them and threw them out on the streets only one had found its way back to its Mum but he would not let it near. I was pregnant at the time and I stood out in the rain all day trying to win that pups trust, it took me hours, I would not move for food,drink or nothing. Eventually I finally managed to get its interest, cautiously it came to me and I touched the top of its head and that was it, we were best friends. It was a female and it was a rottweiler crossed with a labrador and alsation, she was beautiful and I went through hell to keep that dog! But I did and we were together for 11 years, she had to be put down about 6 years ago now. I will never have another dog but I will never forget her.

Hi Gemini_rose, I said this after my two labs but now eight years later I am ready to welcome another one into the family, but it is heartbreaking when they go eh! Good for you for rescuing this one though I am sure she was forever greatful to you. Why are some people just so cruel, I really don't know or understand it. I am so excited though, I will have to be patient, my son is already starting to think of names but I don't know whether or not I will fall in love with a dog or b*tch yet so really won't know til I see them.

I have wo rabbits, fish and two cats already who are all well loved and cared for so this new pup will certainly come into a loving home. My son is already thinking of names bless, Harry and Ziggy are his choices but I don't even know whether I will fall for a dog or a b*tch yet so too soon to think on that but lots of time to prepare things ready. Ellie :D

Momma is a great looking dog. I would love to take her, but I'm not in the UK. Her puppies will be beautiful. I know it's hard to wait for the puppy to come home, especially for your son. This would be a good time to buy dog care books for kids and help your son learn all about the responsibility of having a dog in the family. Kids love to learn. He can be the kid dog expert of the neighborhood. You can also keep him busy and make it easier for him to wait for puppy to come home, by taking him to the pet supply store ever week to pick out something the puppy needs, like a bed, dishes, leash, collar etc,.

Hi TheCatLady, Oh yes he is excited but is being patient too, he has put forward two names Harry and Ziggy but I don't even know yet which of the pups we will fall in love with, a dog or a b*tch so will wait til we have chosen really on that. I have already started looking round for bits and bobs and also have sent of for freebie puppy packs too. We go to the pet store most weeks already so that is an excellent idea, I think all the guinea pigs and rabbits think they belong to us up there as we can never just go in for supplies, we have to give a fuss. LOL. Ellie :D

Hi Postiveminded, Ah bless I really appreciate that but I knew that one would turn up and one has. With seven pups though just may be tempted for more, but will resist. It is a shame I can't offer the mum a home really too but I wanted to introduce a young dog to the family because of my son and the cats and I think she will be far too boisterous. My son is already thinking of names but I won't name until I have been to see and know which one is coming home with us. I don't even know wheher it will be a dog or a b*tch yet but my son likes Harry or Ziggy so far. Yes you did share in the How much is that doggy discussion, thank you. Ellie :D
