If you all want to tell me I'm mad, that's fine. I know.
But just look at him. How can you not love that little face? His glossy black coat that makes him look as though he's been in the tumble drier? The teens raided their savings accounts to buy him and he wasn't in the least bit expensive either. He's an English Springer Spaniel, Patterdale Terrier cross, although at only seven weeks' old he is already much more Spaniel than Terrier.
We love him. Although I hadn't banked on his piteous mewing noises being quite so loud.
Especially when he's asleep.
