    Lovely post Róisín. You do realise though that this is just the beginning. I can see hens in your garden, and a cat to control the vermin. Then it’s only a tiny leap to pigs! No, wait, that’s my future?. Enjoy your puppy baby. You’ll never regret it. He will even wiggle his way into Marcel’s heart.

      Thank you Cathy! Pigs – I dunno! They are so cute though…and Reuben has wriggled his way firmly into Marcel’s heart. If only he would come when he called him now…!

    Absolutely wonderful! Delighted Livvy got her puppy, and Bruce and I love your words and drawings. I just read it out to him in bed, as he is still convalescing after his back op… What is the puppy’s name?

      Hi Fiona, the puppy is called Reuben. Poor Liv had a sore head trying to think up names, as the ones she liked were vetoed by other people in the family…when she came up with Reuben and it was decided she said “At last! I feel so relieved!” Now she’s wondering where to get one of those puppy pushchairs. I shouldn’t have mentioned that one!

    I absolute adore how you portrayed your daughter and husband. I’m so happy for your daughter! I wish I could have a little dog, since I’m a dog lover. But we don’t get it for the very same reasons you explained. At least I know of someone who got it and made her and me very happy. Your sketches are just wonderful, specially the last one. Well done Róisín.
    XOX Adriana.

      Thank you Adriana, that is so sweet of you! It is really nice to make someone happy…and myself in the process. I’ve always dreamed of one of those perfect dogs you hear about, and now it looks like I might actually have one. And thank you so much for your compliments, they mean so much…X

    I love this post and the way you share your personal experiences. I have two girls, one is 12 the other 10. We gave in to the begging a bit earlier than you and your husband a couple years back, so we have a furry baby in the form of a miniature Schnauzer. I can’t imagine our family without her now. Your beautiful artwork paired with your words is a joy to experience.

      Hi Jennifer, thanks so much for your kind words. My friend Lorraine has a miniature Schnauzer and I adore her. She’s got a mind of her own! Luckily she seems to like me so I get to rub her on my lap as much as I like. I’m bringing our pup Reuben to meet her this evening…should be entertaining!
