Casa Buchan has a new four-legged member. Meet Einsten, a red collie:

And in fact, David is responsible for introducing Einstein to us. In that David picked Harley - Einsteins brother - and then posted these cute pictures of him on Facebook, thus thawing out the doggy-part of SWMBO's heart.

So far he's been magnificent. Basically housetrained from the word go, tolerant and respectful of the cats (who have tried hard to ignore him), playful, quiet, and above all - non-hyperactive.

I came home after a 10-day business trip to find that Einstein had became SWMBO's dog.

So this week he gets his final innoculation shot, and this means next week we can actually take him out for walkies. Drumochtie glen, here we come!
