Our Little Billie

Last week we welcomed a new member to our family – Billie – an eight week old Staffordshire Bull Terrier bred by our friend Amy. Since Molly died earlier in the year the house has been terribly quiet and very lonely and John has been yearning for a new dog. She is a dear little thing and John is smitten.

We had a terrible scare yesterday when she suddenly became very sick and we had to rush her to the vet. She spent the day on a drip and they were quite worried about her for some time. Today she is back to her normal playful self – we suspect she ate something she shouldn't have.

She has already well and truly found a place in our hearts.


  1. Yes thank you Elena and Karine, she is a very lovely baby. x

  2. So sweet! Sorry Billie was under the weather, but glad to hear she's feeling chipper again.
    We lost our family dog a few years ago and found the same -- house was too quiet. Now we have Jasper, a 100 lb. lab to keep us company.
    Pets are the best!

  3. Mrs Green, thanks for your comment. I miss our old Lab enormously - they are such lovely dogs – I'm sure Jasper is the best company. Billie is now enormous, I can barely lift her. It seems she grew in the blink of an eye. Such a sweet little dog, we love her.
