The biggest change for us this year has been Bear. Our gorgeous chocolate Spaniel, Labrador X. Well, he actually arrived at the end of last year and it felt like I’d had a child overnight. I was, all of a sudden, responsible for another living thing and no one warns you how life altering it can be! He is of course a BIG tie, a financial strain, complete liability and probably bad timing, but we love him to bits…everyone does.
