Yes you've guessed it....a puppy! They had found a dear puppy who was one of a litter of 10 and waited patiently until this week when their puppy was just about 8 weeks old.
I had a text sent to me this morning to say that that special person had arrived and wanted us to visit. My son is only 10 minutes away so off we went at lunch time and this is who we met.............
German Shepherd Mum and a Belgian Malinois Dad. He is going to be a BIG boy, just look at the size of him for just under 8 weeks old. His birthday is none other that 29 February so they are not sure when he is going to celebrate his birthday each year. I have never known anyone with a Leap Year birthday so we are not sure either. Bear is already the most sociable sweetie and is constantly wagging his tail. I took lots of photo but lots are fuzzy as he is just such a busy boy and when he is awake does not like keeping still.
We had lunch with them and then we left Bear to have a nap. It will be so much fun seeing him grow up. No doubt when he is older and can go out we will need to be available for some occasional walking duties. From time to time I shall also bring you some more pictures of him.
For my card challenge today I thought I would keep in "Bear" mode so this is a card I made using a Gorjuss Girl stamp with (Teddy) Bear. She is for sale here in my Etsy shop
I coloured her and Bear with my Promarker pens and highlighted them with my Prismacolor pencils. I used another of my lovely Martha Stewart punch around the page for the backing card and added some bling with some gems and ribbon.

So this is a very Bear inspired post today. I am sure Little Bear will love his new home with my son and his girlfriend. They have such lovely parkland surrounding where they live he will have such a fun life with them. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend with or without any pets who live with you. My Billy sends you a very contented purr and wants to say to you that he is quite pleased that Bear is not living here ;0) We are continuing to have lots of April showers but also some lovely sunshine too so my garden is growing well.
Bye for now,
