    I've not been around much lately. You may recall the heartbreak we went through in May when we had to say goodbye to our beloved shar pei, Buster after a year long battle with chronic kidney disease

    Initially I was in the never again camp. It was too hard and too painful to ever contemplate having to go through it again.

    My husband hated the house without a dog but I resisted his attempts to change my mind with puppy ads. Until he sent me one with shar pei pups!

    So, we found a brilliant breeder who have had ever health screening test done that's available to ensure both parents are clear of everything that can be tested for.

    Meet Fozzie and Bella! 12 weeks old and just moved in on Monday. We had a holiday already booked so the breeder kept them for an extra month and it's really paid off - they're already toilet trained and are really confident, happy pups.

    Oh wow they are gorgeous!

    Congratulations on your two wonderful additions, they are not replacements by any means but they go a long way to helping heal your heart dont they?

    Beautiful babies.

    Too cute for words! Losing pets is painful, but all the years of love more than make up for it.

    I'm also one who says, "never again", when I lose a pet. But there comes a time when the right one comes along to fill that empty space, and you know it's right. Or in your case, two right ones! I'm so happy for you, and them. :)

    Thanks everyone, they're definitely helping to make our home complete again. I will never forget Buster but I know he'd be happy we're giving more dogs a loving home

    I don't think you will be able to. They just adore you Sonya - it clearly shows on their faces.

    Puppy update!! They 4.5 months old now and getting bigger by the day!! Lots of fun to be around though. Bella has been to puppy classes and loved it - she was brilliant at everything. Fozzie in the other hand is a bit of a baby and is taking longer to do things. He was scared of going for walks at first and we had to carry him out the street but he’s fine now which is good since he weighs 13.5kg now!
