It was decided sometime ago that we would like to get a dog but both R and I had very different ideas about what type of dog we would get. I wanted a cutey little stupid loving spaniel and he wanted an incredibly clever collie. It seemed we were worlds apart. Then who should show up but little Chaika. R kept asking if I liked Borzoi, fairly clever but also cute and cuddly. I have never had a big dog so I was really concerned if I could manage, they are, however, utterly beautiful and elegant.
We found a super cute one and the breeder answered all my questions and reassured me that although big, they are gentle and well tempered. So it was decided. Off we went on a mamouth road trip through the snow up to New England to meet little Chaika. Obviously the moment we met her she melted our hearts and continues to do so everyday. She is beautiful, sweet, well tempered and wonderfully behaved most of the time. Our lives have been somewhat turned upside down and we are loving every minute of it.
Lots of love
p.s. I am totally obsessed with her and post numerous pictures everyday on instagram if you would like to see more, my instagram name is nimblefingered (or you can click on the camera above my picture on the top left). Sorry to all those of you who do follow me on instagram and are sick of Chaika pictures. I will try to vary my subjects soon.
