Early Xmas

Well, we passed the homecheck by the Sussex German Shepherd Rescue, and scheduled to drive down to Eastbourne last weekend: which was scuppered by the weather and some family responsibilities.

However, everything was in train to go this Saturday instead; we were all up at some unreasonably early time - and more surprising, we were all even in good moods ! Packed the kids, their lunches, and things to occupy them during the drive, and off we went.

When we got to Eastbourne, we found the address without any trouble, and met the hospitable family that the dog belonged to. A good talk, exchange of information, and the nod from DH meant that we came home with my joint Xmas and birthday present. And without further ado, here he is:

He is 18 months old, chipped, neutered, and has few manners or social graces. He had been named Storm, but we have re-named him Sebastian; once he and I have come to an understanding about how I don't like to be dragged willynilly down the road - or into it, to play with the traffic because of some yappy Jack Russell on the other side - we will get on fine ...


  1. As you know, I don't usually like GSD's Viv, but this one I could quite happily fuss and play with!! I hope you have many many happy days in the various parks and with as few Jack Russell's as you can see and that Sebastian (or will it be shorted to Seb?) learns to be a good boy :)

  2. Ah, he looks gorgeous! A Christmas present to make all of you happy - you, the kids, DH, and most especially Sebastian, who I'm sure will be in doggy heaven living with you. Merry Christmas!

  3. Handsome Sebastian. Perhaps whoever named him Storm knew what his behavior would be like? I hope his manners grow to match his good looks and Oh So Sophisticaed new name! Congrats to all concerned.

  4. Aw, he looks like a friendly chap. I hope you have a great christmas together!

  5. He looks super. Wishing you all many years of doggie-love and fun!
