Today marks the day my little puppy Pippin turns 8 months old. We got him at 8 weeks old, meaning he’s now been in our lives for an entire 6 months.

I’ve wanted a dog ever since I left home at 18, but obviously as a uni student it wasn’t exactly a feasible option…! It was only when my FiancĂ© and I both established ourselves in steady jobs with a reliable income that we decided we were about ready to take the plunge. For me, although one day I plan to rescue, my heart was set on getting a puppy at least once in our lives. We knew a cocker spaniel was the breed for us, me having grown up with them in my life and us being a fairly active pair when it comes to getting outdoors.
