Thanks – for even clicking on this page.
This is my first blog and of course it has to be about my beautiful puppy (15-month-old) Boxer – Marshall Murray. If you know me personally, you will know how much I care about Marshall.
I am 100% a self-confessed Dog Maw.
And proud –
So, I’ll just fill you in on our timeline so far….
I met my boyfriend Chris around November 2016 and we completely hit it off- so much so that I moved in with him the following April. Chris had never had a dog ever, ever, ever and I love dogs so I 100% knew we would get one together.
Chris wanted a boxer and when I was younger my mum and dad had two so I was right up for it. While Chris was off work due to his back – he thought it was the best time to get a puppy and I agreed but never thought it would happen. I say this because he was due to go on a pre-Emma, pre-planned family holiday to Florida.
But he did…
I came home from work in June 2017 and he’s like do you want to go see a Boxer pup? I would never say no. So, we drove to Barrhead and met lovely couple and 3 lovely pups – the loveliest being our Marshall of course.
The couple advised their Boxer dog had got pregnant and they were overjoyed but unfortunately due to a terrible time in labour – she died whilst giving birth. Only 3 out of 9 pups survived and the couple reared the 3 in place of the puppy’s mum. It was heart breaking – truly horrible to see so much devastation in people’s eyes.
We paid the deposit for Marshall and confirmed we would pick him up on our return from our 2nd couples holiday to Sorrento. It was literally the best day.
Now – 15 months on and we can’t imagine life without him. Perhaps less stressful … but that’s about it. Dogs literally bring joy to my life and my family’s life – and have done for years. My family has always had dogs and although its brought sadness sometimes- all the happy times are worth more. I get to see it from afar with Chris and its honestly amazing!
