What better way to spend your friday than reading about super cute puppy called Ned, owned by the lovely cruelty-free blogger Emily from EmilyJane Reviews Things.
DOES NED HAVE A NICKNAME?
I usually call him poopy! No particular reason, I just think it’s cute! But otherwise we stick to Ned.
WHAT BREED OF DOG IS NED?
He’s a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
HOW OLD IS HE & HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD HIM FOR?
He’s about 14 weeks now. We got him when he was 8 weeks old.
HOW DID YOU GET NED?
Me and my boyfriend had been talking about getting a dog for a while, and I knew it was this breed I wanted. We checked an online website* and found him for sale in a nearby area. We visited him and his brother and he stood out as out favourite. I don’t really agree with breeding dogs, but as I live in a rural area without a large population, there was a choice of 5 rescue dogs that were either collies or staffies and neither would have fitted in with our lifestyle.
WHAT ARE SOME QUIRKY THINGS ABOUT NED’S PERSONALITY?
He loves to sleep on you, and if it’s too bright or noisy he just hides his head under your arm, it’s so cute.
WHAT DOES YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH NED MEAN TO YOU?
It means a lot, it’s been really nice having something to look after every day, and knowing it’s up to you to bring him up well and in a safe environment where he can have a nice doggy life, especially as he was born with a heart murmur so we’re not guaranteed to have him for a very long time (although we hope to make sure he stays healthy enough for it to never be a problem!).
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE PAST TIMES AND MEMORIES WITH NED?
Snuggling with him on the sofa in the evenings, and teaching him new commands! He’s a breed not know for being sharp on the uptake, but he learns really easily and so far knows sit, down, up, no, come here, stay, and drop, although all in Welsh!

Depending on the the response I get, I will be turning this into a competition where readers can vote on their favourite pet and the pet with the most votes will be sent some treats in the post.
* A message from me, Helen.
When looking at dogs online, beware that this is where puppy farmers and puppy snatchers lurk. When you contact online sellers, it’s vital to ask that you can see the puppies with there parents. A genuine breeder will be more than happy to do this and tell you all about the breed with great knowledge. If there is more than one breed of dog in the house, again beware as this is another sign of a puppy farmer. (Although many will hide other breeds)
If you ever suspect anything even remotely dodgy, please please do not buy from them and report them to the police ASAP.
