Isla Eight-Week-Old Border Terrier Puppy in Garden


High on a sheep farm in the Fintry Hills, Stirlingshire, eight, three-week-old Border Terrier puppies are suckling from Luna, the shaggy coated mother.

The breeders welcome us and proudly introduced their extended family and terriers.

A long tradition of successfully breeding runs in the family. Being first-time buyers, we are nervous but reassured by their advice and ability. My knees were trembling with excitement and anticipation. It was my first ever dog.

Puppy resting - sleeping

In the snug farmhouse, the three-year-old farmer's daughter scrambles into the crate to retrieve a puppy. We are one of the first to visit, and it is hard to choose a puppy. The infant hands us the puppy, and it is a girl.

We name her Isla to celebrate her Celtic heritage and to have an easily called name.

My family and the Kennel Club insisted on visiting to see the puppies with their mother and her environment. Three visits! These were all exciting adventures and great experiences. Do check out and spend time in the Stirlingshire and the Trossachs.

It has been a long and worthwhile journey. Sadly, the beautiful dogs we visited at the Dogs Trust did not meet the essential criteria of being suitable with grandchildren.

Life has taken a new and welcome direction now. Living with Isla enriches emotional intelligence and enhances the awareness of the outdoor environment. Perhaps, having a puppy should have happened a long time ago?
