    After much searching I have finally found the right puppy for me - yes! ::bigsmile:

    She is a 13 weeks old Border Collie, vaccinated and microchipped, socialised with other dogs and a cat - and just adorable. Called Phoenix or Nix for short. :Smile:

    Will be spending tomorrow shopping for doggy items - and collecting her on Sunday. :Smile:

    Fantastic news, Maz!!

    I couldn't open the photos though - what a disappointment!! :cry:

    Sounds like she has had a great start to life with someone who has taken alot of trouble to socialise her.

    Can't wait to meet up - I'm sure that Jessie would love a game or two with Nix. Are you going to Malvern?

    Anyway, have fun - it'll make such a difference to you having a companion. ::bigsmile:::bigsmile:::bigsmile:

    Oh, she's beautiful!!
    Phoenix is the name of one of the dog rescue centres in the Dordogne.

    Hope you have lots of fun together--she looks really cute.

    Of course it can read a map and cook, its a border collie:Doh:
    It can do a host of other things too, including making me very envious

    Pete can't see the pic on his lappy either - but I can on the PC !!!! :roflmto:

    She's a little beaut Maz. Hope it's a 'marriage made in heaven' and you will be very happy together. Err, you have checked she doesn't get carsick? pete bought a (very expensive) Springer to train to the gun, all the right handles and knobs on her pedigree - and she used to throw up. Not much use having a retriever you can't take anywhere for her to retrieve anything ..... LOL

    But she got cured. I'll keep that story for if you need it, which I sincerely hope you don't!

    Do they have doggy seatbelts?

    Congratulations on your new arrival ::bigsmile: She looks gorgeous and I am sure you will both be very happy. As co pilot, if she is on the passenger seat, dog harness attached to seat belt. Anywhere in the van, when travelling, she needs restraining. I know though that you are organised and a careful planner and will have all that under control. Watch out as well for errant rolling balls! Jane :Smile:

    Nix

    Appropriate choice, Maz - Nix but no tyres or testicles !!!
