Welcome Tobermory!

So we’ve been thinking about getting a dog for a while.

We were in the pet store over the weekend, and they had a couple of Cavoodles.  At least, they call it a Cavoodle, I call it a “Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Poodle Cross”, the former being a fad/designer dog/yuppie/Paris Hilton description, and the latter being a reflection of reality, which, in times past, would have been referred to politely as a cross, but more accurately as a mongrel or a bitsa.  Great excuse to charge exorbitant amounts for a mongrel dog with a fancy name.

Had a think about it over the rest of the weekend, and on Monday morning I went out to pick him up.  He’s a lovely little lad, and after discussing it with the better half, we’ve given him the name “Tobermory”.

Tobermory is a little town on the Isle of Mull off the west coast of Scotland.  Katie and I did a trip to Mull – it was our first trip together as a couple and so has some significance.  Plus it makes a decent single malt…

So we now have a new addition to the McGuire family, Tobermory (Toby) McGuire.  And he’s just lovely.  Except for not knowing where the toilet is.  It’s a bit of a free for all.  So house training is the flavour of the day!
