Mama OWL Blog: Introducing Joey

Introducing Joey

Tuesday, 20 January 2015

If you follow me on my various social media platforms you'll be aware we welcomed someone new into the family just before Christmas. He is an absolute delight as well as an absolute pest and we all completely adore him - even Florence! I haven't actually officially introduced him on the blog yet, so we would love for you to meet...

JOEY


Joey was born on September 14th last year, and this picture was taken a few days after we brought him home in November. He's a black and tan miniature dachshund and he is the sweetest, most loving little thing. He settled into the family really well and loves Florence so much. She has moments when she mothers him and we catch her cuddling up at bedtime or cleaning his face when she thinks no one is looking, and they have the best time playing tug o' war and chasing each other around the house like lunatics on day release, but other times you can tell she wants him to leave her alone so she can sleep but he's nothing if not persistent and he usually gets his own way! They are like a real life Hairy Maclary and Schnitzel Von Krumm (with a very low tum).


They had a great first Christmas together and were very spoiled by us, and Pets At Home. We dressed them up in their festive jumpers and they loved diving through their boxes and gifts to see what they had - Joey's face on receiving his chewy candy cane was hilarious and you can see the unadulterated glee on his face at receiving all these new things for him to destroy play with.


We've taken out pet insurance on a joint policy for them both and cancelled Florence's previous cover (as it was about to go up a ridiculous amount anyway, and the joint policy was considerably cheaper). We shopped around and got a great deal, and we have also signed Joseph up at Flo's veterinary practice and their healthy pet club scheme which gives us certain treatments free and a big discount on general care for a small monthly payment - we saved more than £50 on Florence's spaying last year thanks to the HPC.

Joey is a very welcome new addition to our family, and we look forward to sharing their adventures with you.
