I just wanted to let you know how Murdo is doing – and also send you a photo of him with his first haircut! It’s quite short but his adult coat is coming in and he was getting constant mats (despite daily combing) so I thought it best to get it cut short for the time being at least. Although he’s a bit of an angel, he was getting very fed up with 1 hour grooming sessions every day – and so were we if I’m honest! Once he’s shed his puppy coat though, I’ll probably let it go longer again (because it does look gorgeous).
Murdo is so much a part of the family now, we can’t remember a time when he wasn’t here. He loves the kids, has made some doggie pals out on our regular walks and loves nothing better than curling up on the sofa with my husband. He’s got such a great personality – really playful, outgoing and friendly but also placid and chilled out in equal measure – a good balance.
I’m always stopped on dog walks and asked about him – where I got him, what breed he is and so on. The dog groomer today said he was a fantastic wee character – and he won mega points for letting her pluck his ears (ouch!) and trim between his toes without flinching. We’ve been grooming him since we got him so perhaps he’s used to it but I think it’s got more to do with his fabulous nature. Thank you for breeding such a lovely wee soul.
We were just saying that we’ve been so lucky to get such a great dog and I’m sure that’s in no small way down to a good breeder who knows what he’s doing so I’m delighted that we found Glendream! I see from your website that you’re now in Angus. Obviously, it’s further away from us but there’s no doubt that if and when we decide to get a wee friend for Murdo, we’d make the trip! We also had him neutered recently. All was fine and the vet and vet nurse both commented on what a great wee dog he is. Look forward to keeping in touch with more Murdo news in the future.
