And the puppy has arrived

It was time to get a puppy. After searching on the internet we drove to Leppington to choose a puppy. Adriaan chose Christi, a blonde and white border collie named after a beautiful Afrikaans actress. She was the only blonde and white puppy in the litter and was a popular choice. One week later (on Saturday last week) she was ready to collect. She is 7 weeks old now.

Her first weekend was full of adventure. On our way home we went shopping after which she could explore her new environment at home. On Saturday we drove to Newcastle - her first long trip. She is as busy as any pup and is now in training...especially potty training.
