|This is Jussi!|
After 26 years of nagging, I finally managed to persuade my parents to get a Labrador puppy. We were torn on which colour to go for, me favouring chocolate, my mother wanting golden and my father indifferent. Yesterday he found a local breeder with connections to my old school who had a litter of 9 puppies on Christmas Eve, 7 black and 2 golden. We were just going to visit this lunch time to learn about the puppies and what to look for, get our questions answered etc as both the golden ones had been sold and there was just one black bitch and dog remaining. I think you can guess what happened!
My dad was immediately smitten with a beautiful black bitch and it was hardly a tough sell to me or my mother. The owners were so friendly and down to earth, and the dogs all appeared happy and well cared for, so any fears we had on that front were quickly put to rest. On 18th February our gorgeous puppy will be coming home with us. We had already decided on the name Jussi (pronounced Y-see, the y said how you say the letter y in the phonetic alphabet) after watching the Swedish TV series Wallander. In the second series of the made for TV episodes, the famous detective gets a chocolate Labrador called Jussi. Again my mum wanted Barley, I wanted Livy or Indy, so we came to a compromise.
You can expect endless photos of her to appear on my blog when she comes home to us, but rest assured I will try to keep my mind beauty related until then!
