Hello Hugo

Hi guys, I just wanted to get up a little chit chat post for you all this evening and introduce you all to a new family member! I am sure there will be some nodding heads already, especially if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (sunshinesprkle) but for those of you who have no idea who or what I am talking about....This weekend my mum and I went on a puppy hunt! And we were not looking for any pup... don't get me wrong all puppies are simply adorable but we were specifically after a Chocolate Labrador puppy, and it had to be a boy of course (I don't know why, but we've only ever had boy doggies).

 Hunting for the right pup has been a bit of a mission itself, my step dad has been making calls after calls to enquire about chocolate lab pups, and each time he made the call, he would get the call back saying that the puppies had been sold. Last week he made an oh so important call to a lady in Nottingham as her doggie had a litter of eight pups and there was one little boy left - But she also said that there was a man coming all the way from Scotland to see him and maybe put a deposit down on him and that she would let us know. Well the man came down and obviously couldn't resist the cuteness of the puppy and wanted to take him. So we were left starting our search once again. Come Friday we received another call from the same lady saying the man from Scotland was messing her around and that she didn't really trust him, and although she had plenty of other calls that week showing interest in the little one she loved our story so much so that she wanted us to see him the following day. 

What's our story you might be wondering? Well I wont go into too much detail as I am planning on dedicating a whole blog post to my wonderful Chocolate Lab Glover who we lost in the summer - I just haven't brought myself to write it yet as it just gets me upset. But like I say we lost Glover in the summer and it was the most heartbreaking thing in the world. He was never just a dog, but a part of the family and held a very special place in all our hearts. We had him from a pup and for 10 years of my life I was lucky enough to have him there... Anyone who has a pet, especially a dog will know just how attached you become to these lovable bulls of fluff and fur, and they not only become a family member but a friend who will be there to listen and offer as many cuddles and kisses as you need. My mum, sister and I all miss him loads but seeing as he was the baby of the family, the house feels quiet, empty and lonely without him and it was decided that it was time to let our hearts love once again and cherish and spoil another Chocolate Labrador. By no means are we trying to replace Glover, but life is short and why not have another bundle of joy to look after?

So come Saturday, three of us took the 2 and a half hour car journey to see that last puppy that the lady had left, as soon as we entered her living room there were eight gorgeous 6 week old puppies all chocolate little puddings wanting fuss, cuddles and kisses. The lady handed us a little sleepy fellow - the one we had done all the travelling for and it was love at first sight. We already had a name in mind - Hugo and after cuddles and lots of fuss it was decided that he was the one! I can't tell you how unbelievably excited I am that he is coming home with us (hes not ready to leave his mum for another 2 weeks) and even though I no longer live with my mum, I am so happy and pleased that she has another little baby to look after. I just know that he will bring so much joy and happiness to everyone in my family and it has been an early Christmas present to us all. So a week on Friday he will be at my mums, just in time for my birthday, so expect to see lots of pictures and post about the adorable puppy that is Hugo. I cannot wait!

I'll leave this post here beauties as I'm aware I've rambled on and gotten and probably overboard with the sweetness and soppyiness... But I'm just excited.

Glover - Gone, but never forgotten - Miss and love him always

Lot's of Love
