Tilly - Our Newest Cutest Addition
To Our Family!
How cute is this face...?
We have had Tilly for 3 days now and she is 13 weeks old. We got her from our local Dogs Home after she was surrendered from a previous owner who couldn't look after her properly.
She's absolutely gorgeous and fantastic with 2 of our children aged 8 and 2. Unfortunately, our 6-year-old daughter is very scared of dogs and we don't know why.
We decided on a puppy in the hope that one day our daughter would see that not all dogs jump and bite like she thinks they do.
I know that maybe our daughter will never be a dog lover but that she will come to accept that dogs are part of peoples lives and she will be able to tolerate having them around.
She has come a long way in the past 3 days from crying when she saw a dog to now being able to be in the same room as Tilly and will even pat her if I am holding the puppy.
Tilly has been a pleasure and so gentle, no biting and hardly jumps up on the kids and loves sitting on their laps for a cuddle and a little sleep.
It may have only been 3 days since we got her but already we can see she will be a loving member of our family and we are so pleased that she has come into our lives.
PS: They told us she was a cross with a Beagle but she looks Cocker Spaniel, however she has wide broad feet.
Does this mean she will be bigger than average for her size?
