Look who has come to live with us ...............

This is Max.

He is a 9 week old cross Westie and American cocker spaniel.
His mother is a Westie and his father the Cocker.
Both his parents are breeding dogs who decided to break the mold, so the breeder gave the puppies away, I just had to pay the vet's fees for the injections and puce.

I am not sure what he will look like when he is bigger. He has the cocker ears and wrinkled brow but I think he will be the size of the westie.

I went to see him on Friday afternoon with D, my son and we took him home with us.

He has been very good - so far. He sleeps in the kitchen in his basket.
He has been out for quite few walks and is learning to do his his business outside. He is already good at walking on the lead and doesn't pull too much.

My other dog, Miss, is quite tolerant of him as long as he doesn't annoy her. She won't let him in her basket - yet.

I have to go to work tomorrow, so he will be on his own for quite a while, so I hope he will be OK.

Absolutely adorable! We had a cocker spaniel for 14 years...the most loving, gentle, affectionate dog. All she ever wanted to do was be beside you...and eat toast!
Nice addition to your family.

Max looks so sweet and full of fun! Thanks for your comment re Llandudno - I took the photo you asked about from the promenade or Parade as it is called down one of the streets leading to the main shopping area - it may have been Lloyd street but I'm not sure:)
