Whats going on down on the Farm?
Walter the Vizsla
It’s been a long time since I admired Wirehaired Hungarian Vizslas and we have had a few dogs in our lives in the meantime, all of them loved and treasured members of our family, living alongside our children and a variety of other pets along the way, including a ferret, ponies, and various cats, most of which found us rather than us choosing them!
We currently have Frank, our smooth haired Hungarian Vizsla who was driven up from Gloucestershire almost 2 years ago to cause chaos and mayhem in our lives. He’s been like a whirlwind and I have described him as like living with a kangaroo in the house. Why oh why did I then agree to us having another one in the family you ask. Well the reason is that when we had Frank we also had my beloved terrier, Stanley who ruled our house and us to his advantage for many a year. Stanley sadly passed on earlier this year and I thought that we could then become a one dog almost normal family.
I hadn’t realised how much Frank would pine for Stanley, they weren’t exactly friends, but I know now how much company they were for each other. Well, a case of now or never appeared and young Walter has come into our lives. He’s a wonderfully laid-back young man who I’m sure will become best friends with Frank although we are currently adjusting to Frank no longer being the baby in the family. Walter has yet to meet the 2 cats, all in good time, but he seems to have settled really well. I’ll apologise now for the pictures that I will be putting on our social media of him and Frank of course, although he seems to have quite a following already.
I’m managing to write this as he’s having a nap alongside his big brother but as I’m surveying the chaos of balls, toys, blankets and cushions perhaps I should stop and tidy up, although in 10 minutes I’m sure its going to be just as bad again.
