Spud has finally managed to climb down the stairs on his own. The little devil has been able to get up them since he first arrived, but was too scared to climb down them. This meant one of us had to carry him whenever he needed to have a piss or crimp one off, and if we didn't he'd leave a spuddle of urine at the top of the stairs to teach us a lesson.

He visited the vet yesterday for his first
The wait is finally over, and we picked up the little Spud this morning!
Spud is most definitely the pick of the pups, but the entire litter is smashing. We very nearly ended up coming away with two of the devils.
I tell you now, nine seven-week-old boxer pups running riot around your house looks like bloomin' great fun. Totally exhausting, but still great
