You can’t live in the country and not have a dog, so Mr L’Orange and I would now like to introduce our
newest family member, Dog A L’Orange!
Our 8 week old English Pointer, also know as Bailey seems to be settling in well to his new home and to my relief has not destroyed too much of the garden….yet! However I don’t want to leave anything to chance and I am going to erect some temporary fencing around the herb garden, veggie patch and garden beds just to be on the safe side.
The new puppy is very alert and pretty obedient (as much as you can be for a puppy!), he enjoys meeting new people and loves his food. At the moment, Dog A L’Orange is sleeping in a pen in the house until he has all his injections and can move to a nice comfy kennel in the garden (Mr L’Orange is sorting this out – expect some humorous posts in the near future).
The puppy has a habit of curling into anyone’s feet when he wants to go to sleep and is very cute. So far he whines a lot when left by himself anywhere in the house or garden, but we are hoping he will grow out of this very quickly as it is quite annoying.
You can expect to see lots more of Dog A L’Orange in upcoming posts on the Life A L’Orange Blog. Don’t
forget Orange Wine Week starts today and then there is heaps of good stuff on for the next 10 days if you are at a loose end. The full Orange Wine Week programme can be downloaded here.
