This week our family increased by one, a very BIG one. If you haven’t already heard may I ask where have you been?? I must have told everyone I know about it at least 4 times now. Most people now seem to glaze over when I mention it. Well you may have noticed the references to Cuba over the last few weeks, well that was me playing with you. The Cuba I was referring to is a BIG beautiful 5 year old German shepherd! A more beautiful dog you are not likely to meet and a better breeder you will not come across. (or at least not easily)
Cuba comes from the prestigious and successful Voneisen Kennel and was a multi award winning show dog for the first three years of his life. He then grew tired of it and as a measure of the quality of his breeders they didn’t insist he continue. Instead he retired and stayed very much a central part of the family where he thrived and was cherished.
He arrived with us on Saturday and the first thing he did was to accidentally break the brand new car harness we bought for him. Whilst we starred at astonishment his charm was already working on us as quickly we began to realise that you just can’t get angry with the Cubester.

We are delighted with how quickly the big fella has settled in well and is starting to obey our commands. One of my mates in the ‘Chunky Dunkers’ even commented today as we swam in the sea that she had never seen a dog settle in so quickly. I have to agree he’s like part of the furniture. Lola keeps her distance but to be honest she can be a little aloof with everyone at the best of times. She loves to be in charge and she loves her own company. We are just delighted that they seem happy to share the same bedroom and owners.
