As some of you may remember my springer spaniel, Paddy, died in September aged 16 years young. I was lucky enough to be chosen to get a rescue dog called Pele. He is a jackdoodle (jack russell x poodle) and is 18 months old. We have had him for 3 months now and last weekend decided to buy a puppy as a friend for him. We bought a Maltipoo (maltese terrier x poodle) and called her Pickle........life is rather manic now, hence the lack of posting on this site. Its like having twin babies at the moment Kara and Pickle Pele is the bigger of the two! Pele - looking rather naughty after digging up all my bark in the garden!
