Iâ€™ve always had this distinct notion that my house will not be without a pet. So when we lost Quita, we soon started to look around kennels to see if any of them had a fresh litter with puppies for sale. Some of you may recall that Quita came into our house the moment we learned that Bella had cancer, they spent 3 wonderful months together before Bella finally yielded to her disease.
Not many days after, we found Lego, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who was born on May the 20th, he was one of two males left in a litter of five. He is the firstborn, and has a distinct white-ish color on the tip of his two back paws.
Why the small race, you say?
As some of you know, Both Quita and Bella were a Doberman breed, and I have to admit, I do love them, but our local county law (Skedsmo kommune) introduced a â€œleash all year, everywhereâ€ rule that basically makes life miserable for medium and large-sized dogs. Dogs need to run free, and to be able to socialize with other dogs in playing with them, and not being only restricted to a quick whiff at the end of a tight leash. This only makes dogs more aggressive.
Rules like this have no meaning â€“ there is no wildlife near my town that need this type of protection. There are no farms with animals nearby that warrant this law. Do we need a law to protect people from dogs?? â€“ if so, it is an epic declaration of fail for humanity!
We picked Lego up yesterday, at 8 weeks of age. He was the last of his litter to abandon the home. All of his siblings left the house the day before. In a way, that was a good thing. Lego slept alone in his crib for a night in known surroundings. His mom even started to reject him (as they do when the pups reach this age) so I feel we got him at the optimal time! First born, and last to leave.
BUT â€“ Iâ€™m not going to write too much about Lego on this site.
He was first born, but last to leave his home. In our waiting, we created Legoâ€™s own news page, so that you can follow his progress.
So point your browser to http://lego.digitaldias.com for news, updates and photos of Lego. Thatâ€™s where the news will be â€“ for convenience, itâ€™s also a WordPress blog, so you can point your favourite newsreader to it and get the news when they are fresh!
