Bringing Louis Home

Posted on

Well it was probably the longest journey of the childrens lives – and we couldn’t have been further away – Hampshire to Lincolnshire – literally traversing the country. We were also concious that Louis’ brother and sister had been collected the previous weekend so he’d been all alone for a week. We were late already!!

Louis The Cavador Puppy

After a  four hour drive then a quick cuppa with Chris we were back on the road and heading home with our fluffy bundle!

After a little initial shyness Louis soon began to realise that we were his! Forever! He would not stay in the crate we had wedged in between the girls and wanted to share the love all around the car…along with the smell of the puppy pen – phewwwww!

He entertained us fully for the whole four hour drive and apart from one rather smelly accident he was extremely easy. Once we got back to Church Crookham the girls had one plea – could they take him to Pets at Home Superstore so they could show off?! For so long they had been the ones looking longingly at other kids parading their puppies in the aisles – and now if was their turn! They were not disappointed as we duly bought him MORE treats and he were stopped every 3 steps for people to coo over the tiny dog. The girls were ecstatic!

Taking him into our house for the first time I can only liken to bringing your first baby home. We genuinely didn’t have a clue what to do with him?! He soon solved that by pooping all over the carpet…

The first night we were very strong and kept in his crate. After a mere 5 minutes of crying he went straight off to sleep and didn’t stir till we all got up Sunday morning! Its looking good so far…
