Introducing Jed, the newest addition to our family. He is a curly coat retriever, 16 weeks old, 15kg, and criminally adorable.


Jed shows piece of string who’s boss.

Having researched curly coats, I can’t understand why anyone would want to get any other type of dog, unless you have an interest in canine topiary. I have no idea why nobody has ever heard of curly coats. They are loyal, affectionate, evidently gorgeous, don’t shed hair (much), hunt and retrieve, and they actually dive and swim underwater (that was my first criterion in selecting a pooch).

When they met Jed, Sister In Law and her boyfriend, Taffy, were so enamoured they abandoned their plans to acquire a labradoodle. They drove back to Dunedin the following day and chose a bitch from the same litter.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any cuter (I’m tricky like that), please meet Jed’s sister Carlotta on the right.

  1. Well done Niamh.

    Hope this dulls the pain of the whole “left boot” incident, and I guess that Andrew can breath easy now the ice pick no longer resides at the foot of the marital bed…..

    Please make sure Andrew throws Jed in the trunk on the way to the airport; I just couldn’t cope with any more of those askance glances across the living room table, should he go the way of the boot 🙂

    Wow…………… he’s adorable – I want one of those!!

    Bet your life will never be the same again!! Looking forward to meeting him :))

    Yes! Thank you for the third party confirmation that proves I’m not hopelessly biased. Or maybe not. I swore I would never be the type that told everyone repeatedly how great/intelligent/talented our dog was, but I’m afraid not

  5. Could this enchabting creature be the solution to the boot left behind?

  6. enchanting.
    sorry, microgravity has messed with the bones in my fingers.

    Hi ca – might have been the unbearable cuteness messed with your fingers. It has that effect 😀

    I am SO over my left boot, the ungrateful soul

    Carole & Raff, ‘ ands off! He’s mine. You two couldnt bring up a gold fish!!

  9. Oh yum! Gert said I could have one after Berlin … last heard I was meant to be there from October till January but we’ll see.

    Golden Labrador with a dash of something else, for me 🙂

    Enjoy your new baby. xo

    Ms Di! Great to see you around. Yeah, a dog ties you down somewhat – although that said, Jed’s been great at getting me up at 7am and out walking every day. Not so easy with your jetsetting career/lifestyle, I imagine? 😀

  11. […] to refer again to a single member subset of the genus canid, I have nothing to blog about. Outside Jed – OOPS! – my life is an arid wasteland of tedium, in no way resembling an enchanted kingdom or even […]
