Introducing Betsy The Chihuahua

So, we’re back from Paris and I had every intention of making that news my next blog post, but life sort of took a bit of a diversion when we got back… Yesterday our home was invaded by a puppy and I’ve got too far many pictures of cuteness to show you before I chat about my trip away!

I’m not quite sure what made us decided we wanted a new addition to the family, but we talked out all the pros and cons and ended up with Betsy the tiny eleven week old Chihuahua. She’s not as miniature as some Chihuahua’s come, but is currently standing at about a third of the size of our cat – I thought this would help Fat Cat adapt with a bit more ease and it seems to have worked. They haven’t quite buddied up for life yet, but they have now stepped into the same room as each other – It’s a decent start, as Tigger was under the bed for most of yesterday evening.

We all had a very long night. Fat Cat, Alex and I were woken every two hours for about half an hour as Betsy was crying in the kitchen all night. I expect we’ll have plenty more nights like this, but we are going to be strong and make that the place she sleeps until she is fully trained up. The funny ole thing pooped in her water bowl and made a right royal mess of the room, so a wise choice I think!

Turns out it’s not as easy to take photos of an energetic young pup as it is of a lethargic fat cat, but here’s what I’ve got to show you…

So, that’s Betsy. Get used to her face because I’m sure you are going to see a lot more of her! :)

    Impressed they managed a few minutes together on the sofa today… although Betsy soon learnt that nibbling Fat Cat isn’t the best of ideas!
