Meet Geoffrey, my daughter's dog. He's still only a puppy, and he's on the naughty step for chasing the cat.I've put him here to brighten up what has become rather a dismal blog over the past week or so. Oh - and because he's very cute. (And I'm not really a dog-lover.)
But I have an interest in Geoffrey because I found him for her. My daughter wanted a labrador ("so that it can put its head on my knee and gaze up into my eyes,"said she, who knew nothing about dogs, least of all large ones, but who had been watching that very soppy film Marley and Me). But now she has Geoffrey, who is a miniature wire-haired dachshund.
Geoffrey is ideal for a beginner because (a) he needs very little exercise, (b) he doesn't shed his coat and (c) he does very small poos.
What more can you ask?
