Default Hi from Sue and C.J.

My hubby nagged me through out our entire married life (16 years) for a dog and late last year he realised that now that I work from home I really don't have any more excuses.

C.J. was born on 30th December 2006. She's a black and tan working Cocker Spaniel ... currently spark out on her bed after another garden wrecking rampage.

We struggled to find a name we both liked and one that wasn't already taken by our friends for their dogs. We went for C.J. because we're both huge West Wing fans ... although we forgot about the dodgy character in Bay Watch!

Although hubby has always had dogs she's my first and I've got to say she's converted me. The first couple of months were tough for me as a rookie dog owner with a spirited puppy but we've both settled in nicely.

We haven't had any damage in the house but she's partial to digging holes in the lawn and flower beds along with chewing off great big pieces of our plants. I like to let her play in the garden while I'm working but hubby isn't going to be happy tonight when he sees what she's done to his plants today.

I'm off to explore the forum ... bye for now.

Glad the little girl has made you a dog lover! And glad you found us!
Just about any unwanted behavior can be fixed so I'm sure you'll get your "amateur gardener" under control.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Great to have you with us. CJ is adorable. I left you instructions on how to post pics in threads in CJ's photo thread. Hope that helps.

Thanks very much for the kind welcome.

I've just been reading about burying poo so I'll be suggesting that to hubby.

I don't think it's lack of exercise as she gets a walk first thing and one mid afternoon with me then one last thing with hubby.

She could be trying to get my attention, she particularly disagrees with me being on the phone, but she does get lots more attention than she would if I didn't work from home.

She's only nine months so it's probably a phase but the poo thing is worth a shot.

I've posted some photos in the dog pictures section.
