Introducing Saffy

Seeing as she's already snuck into a few photos in my posts, it's only right I introduce Saffy sooner rather than later! 

She's a Jack Russell we adopted from Dogs Trust in 2009 as a three-month old puppy, picked out as the 'lively' one from the litter of girls. The centre named her Sapphire, but she's become Saffy- it suits her cheeky personality better! Her favourite things include swimming, tearing the faces off teddies from the charity shop and eating the leftover chicken after a Sunday roast. 

She's also a bit of a poser and recognises the click of a camera, so I'm never short of photos to look through when I'm away at uni and missing her! I often share the cutest/ funniest ones on twitter and instagram as well, so make sure you're following me to see them.

I did spend a bit of time training Saffy- she's not the brightest dog (just see the video below haha), but she can shake paw and crawl along the floor if tempted with something tasty! We've also attempted a bit of agility at home over some homemade obstacles, and teaching her to find a tennis ball hidden in the house. She's a slow learner for this kind of things, but had no trouble at all learning what 'walkies', 'sausages' and 'squirrels' mean. She also responds to the word 'plane' and I have no idea why...

So, that's Saffy. I'm sure she'll continue to appear in any posts that I write at home. I'd genuinely love to hear about your pets, so feel free to leave a comment- especially if you've got a similar post!
