Has he been banned, or has he just not been on here? Hope he is okay.
Do you have kids, and is it their first pet? If so, it will need to be something memorable for when they have to reset all their passwords in years to come.
Also need to be careful when you have to come up with your 'Porn Name' - always start with the name of your first pet, then it's either your mother's maiden name or your own middle name. 'Doggy Styles' is a no no.
The kids want to call it Mabel.
I may call it Jeff Fucking Bezos on account of all the money Amazon are getting off me for dog equipment.
Last week when we were trying to think of names for our pup I pitched 'Whitts', which didn't get a favourable response so I tried 'Seven' which also got shot down, then I tried 'Count Dogula' which didn't get a moment's serious consideration (unfairly, in my opinion).
Dog cage off Amazon will be setting you back about 30 notes right about now, plus dog chew toys, pee mats, treats, food, bedding...
They are three good names. I may now get three dogs just to use your names.
Ended up spending £65.99 on a crate . Lovely it is though, kids have been sitting in it most of the day.
About the same on bedding
About the same on a pen/fence thing for the garden
Around 50 notes on toys/chewy things
30 quid on a bit of astroturf for it to shit on
Another 80 quid or so on oddments - collar/lead, brush, ear hair scissors, whistle, bowls
Just the food to go.
My recycling bin was fairly full before all this distancing kicked off so I'm now slowly filling my shed with empty Amazon boxes
Blimey, that's quite a spending spree, hope the dog didn't cost too much then
In fairness you do seem very excited by the new arrival and it's good to see
Will probably be the bestest friend you will ever have
After all the excitement it's easy to forget we still have to pay for the dog!
Luckily the wife has been handling most of the contact with the breeder so hopefully she'll pay
Any pet name that has a title in it like Mr.Snappy knickers or a rank like General Sherman is fine by me.
Bargain. Get another one.
What we naming this dog then?
N cos it poos everywhere is it
The dog will be named... Mabel The Dog
Mabel for short.
We are told by the breeders that Retriever puppies' hips can suffer from climbing stairs/steps, so I have spent the weekend digging out our old stair gate and expertly crafting two dog ramps so Mabel can negotiate steps around the premises. The enormous satisfaction of building stuff out of things I'd kept in my shed, just in case they came in handy, has washed over me today.
It now looks like there's a predictable nationwide shortage of dog biscuits. There was an actual queue of 1700 people just to get on the petsathome website earlier, Looks like it's time for Jeff F Bezos to bend me over again.
Seven, after Whitts.
Also 7 of 9 from Star Trek Voyager (played by Jerry Ryan) is very beautiful...
Mabli? extra points?
