The Duchess was not really interested until she caught a glimpse of something black and white out of the corner of her eye. She made a beeline to the other side of the yard and found to her joy and amazement a very small Border Collie. When asked if the pup had a name, the owner looked at the Duchess like she had lost her marbles. It was obvious that this little guy needed rescuing and the Duchess had the Duke convinced in no time at all. The man wanted next to nothing for the cuddly little guy and fortunately the Duchess had enough cash on her to seal the deal.
No sooner had they gotten him into the car than he was officially named "Jake".
When they got him home Sir Bear and I had a good sniff, to see what this fuss was all about.
Hey! This guy might be fun to play with!
