Being an ‘animal loving’ household we are forever being asked if and when we can get this, that and the other despite already having a dog the kids seem adamant that we need more pets. As for Paul and I, we are quite happy with just the dog especially at present given that she is twelve years old and sadly struggling to walk therefore taking up a massive amount of our time and effort.
