No matter how often i see your animals Lucy - it makes me smile - dont diss the cross idea.
Over in usa they have a breed that is a cross Boxer/Staffie - honestly they do it looks like a staffie in face and stance, but def a boxer size and chest - and they breed them like that.
Wonderful pictures Lucy really wonderful.

A lot of dogs that have different eyes, the blue side ear can be deaf or slow of hearing- is she ok?

You're pet pictures are all so lovely!

I would love a cat or dog, but don't want to put more responsiblity onto hubby for its care. I do get pet visitors though, a wee westie and a king charles who always make me smile. :lol:

Was nice to read about everyones pets...I have a chocolate lab Murphy who is 8, and an English Bull Terrier Lilly who is almost 3. Both gorgeous and full of charachter lol. I think i have a love hate relationship with them usually tinged with guilt as i'm not able to look after them as much as i or they would love. Thankfully my partner is great with them and does all the long walks over the Plains with them so they can really play and burn off all their energy. I get all the cozy cuddles on the sofa..except when they are moulting. They are just starting to loose their winter coat and all the extra hoovering is difficult, but you cant help but love them eh!! and they are great at keeping a secret hehehe. Also have a black n white cat Bridgette who is 5. Shes really my daughters but i've been looking after. I did have her sister called Gorgeous but she went our last year and never came home :cry:
