    Just gorgeous @Logan :imphrt:

    I would have a Goldie again in a heartbeat if I thought we had enough room as their temperament is just the best. We have a big enough garden, but the house is a tad titchy and that makes me think twice.

      I don't know anyone who has one at the moment, besides we don't borrow any animal in this house - if they come in, they tend to stay and become part of the family rather quickly. Hell, we were donated a fish tank at somewhat short notice about 18 months or so ago, and we now have some of the cheekiest (and randiest) fish this side of Watford - - and we ended up with a nursery tank! :heehee:

      We are not actively looking (nor can we afford to buy) another dog at the moment as it is still very early days - but, if one came up that was in need of a home, we would step in as we simply cannot bear animals to be in distress. If it were a larger dog, we would cope. We would trip over it on occasion, but then that happens with small ones too :biggrin:

      I've had and been around dogs since my childhood (Labradors, Retrievers, German Shepherds, Spaniels, Collies, Jack Russells and so on), so would consider myself to be a fairly experienced dog owner, so am not really afraid to take most things on.

        @Fat Controller yes i understand. The reason why I said borrow one is because i knew someone who did that with a Goldie but had to give him back. I can understand that we would be the same, couldn't give them back.
        When Barley was younger he was hard work and it came to a point where hubby said that he had enough and wanted to rehome him but i said no, now hubby wouldn't be without him now that he's older, i couldn't have done it, all the best for you in the future. :smile:

            I haven't seen any news until around ten minutes ago, and that was the first bit of news I stumbled across. Very sad.

              He was laying out in the rain on the last episode.
              I remember thinking, I wonder how much longer he would be around.

                    Just finished watching Gardeners World, very sad watching Monty talking about Nigel, tears in the eyes I must admit.

                      I've still got to watch it and in a way not looking forward to it.
                      :cry3:
                      There's a picture of him with nigel on the front paper of the times, his first interview since nigel died, he said that he cried like a baby.
