The trip south was uneventful. We arrived refreshed and had a quick mooch around Aberdeen. After a nice lunch, we then drove to some friends who live just outside the town. They have a carriage driving centre and were in the middle of harnessing up an Orlov trotter to a carriage when we arrived so Daisy helped out as groom and they went for a drive.
Meanwhile, I waited for the transporter to arrive with the puppies. All went to plan. They reached us happy and excited. We duly fell in love.
Little collars on and clipped to long leads and off we went shouting at each other “don’t cross the streams!” like Ghostbusters! It was chaos.
The puppies quickly became accustomed and almost cooperative on their leads and we gave them a good walk, let them play and then fed and watered and put them to bed.
Many happy days ahead. Life feels good.
