My name is Gino & my Kennel Club name is Siglette Shadow. I was chosen from 5 boys when I was 4.5 weeks. Mum said it was very difficult but she's glad that she brought me home Mum says she needs me to ease the pain that she has after losing Suzi who she had before me. Apparently I've been so good since I arrived home at 8 weeks Mum cant believe it as apparently I was dry all night on my first night so I made a very good impression ok I did have a few accidents in the house during the day (six to be precise) but they weren't my fault so Mum says. I'm settling in now & Mum says I was meant to be have heard her saying that she wasn't sure if she wanted another after having Suzi for nearly 13 years. But Jennifer who groomed Suzi told Mum about puppies that her friend Moira's dog Vikki was having so Jennifer invited Mum for lunch on 24th April & Moira put Mum down for a girl.... But when Vikki's 6 puppies arrived on 9th May there was only one girl & 5 boys !! Mum said you know what Moira decision made ....I've had my Girl Suzi..... I'll take a BOY. So on the 9th June Mum came & chose me (Moira had named me Mr Green) & as Mum was wearing green that day she decided even though her favourite colour was blue that she would take me. Mum then came every week to see me until the big day came when she could at last take me home... on the 4th July.
Apparently on my first night I was so good as when Mum put me to bed I only gave a couple of whimpers then I slept all night! Mum was really impressed. Mum keeps saying I'm such a good wee boy. Think she is now starting to love me !!! So once I was house trained Mum took me through to Crail for the day to visit aunty Ann as they wanted to meet me, also met Hamish & Robbie (theyre both Scotties) it was my first day off the lead too playing with them. I even cuddled in beside Hamish in his bed. We all went to the beach it was great Mum had to stop me running about so I didn't overtire myself as I was only 14 weeks old & it was my first day at the beach.
Two weeks later I then had my first holiday, when we went to Aunty Ann's caravan for a week. The first night we were there we went to the East Neuk Hotel as the humans were having their dinner. Apparently I was so well behaved again I made Mum so proud of me as I just sat and watched everything that was going on round about me. We were also on the beach again most days it was good fun but it was cold during the night....then we had to come home !
Mum has had friends to stay a few times, & we have also been to stay overnight with Benito's Mum. Mum used to doggy sit Benito when his Mum went to work he's the same as me but Black & Silver. But they don't stay here now. I played non stop with Benito all the time we were there, there was also Ollie the kitten & Ama she was a senior lady but I liked her too, she's a French Bull dog.....Mum said I was very good.
Coming up for 8 months now and still doing really well. Mum took me to the doggy doctor last week as I had to be weighed so I'm now 7.4kgs, Martin says I have to have a puppy tooth removed as its not been pushed out by the adult tooth so I'm going soon to have that extracted not sure if they are going to do anything else to me when I'm there as I heard Mum say what about his 'bits' whatever they are ! I dont know ! so watching this space
