Sad news this week on the pet front with the death of one of the frogs. Fortunately the remaining two appear healthy. On a more cheerful note we are soon to become foster parents to a seven year old Boxer, and he came for an initial visit this week.
Basil belongs to one of dh's colleagues. They were living in rented accommodation while they awaited the rebuild of their earthquake damaged home. However, that rental was seriously damaged in last week's floods and trying to find another rented home that would accept pets was impossible. They needed to find a home for Basil for the next 10-12 months until they can move into their rebuilt home and Miss 13 has always wanted a dog so hopefully it'll be a win-win situation. He's big and, given our unfamiliarity with dogs I'm anticipating a variety of teething problems but we (maybe not our cat but she doesn't know yet ;-) ) are looking forward to him moving in next week.
