The latest member of our family, the very lovely Zeph (Zephyr)!

Zeph is a Blue Merle Border Collie.

When he was first born, he reminded me of a little guinea pig!

In the photo below his eyes haven’t opened yet.

He has what I call ‘David Bowie’ eyes, one brown and one blue. His eyes could still change colour, although the breeder thinks this is unlikely.

We collected him on Monday. The two photos below show him in his new home. We are busy getting to know him and he us.

These early days, weeks and months are vital in terms of training. I’d forgotten how small a puppy’s bladder is!

We are all totally spellbound by this little bundle of fluff and energy.

If you have been following this blog, you might remember that I love dogs, grew up in a family of dog lovers and have always had dogs.

It is four years since we had our last dog. It has taken us a long time to find Zeph but it’s been well worth the wait!
