Hi, I’m Wally and I’m new to the family. I am still finding my feet in the The Trials & Tribulations of Parenthood household. However, that is mainly because I have very big boots to fill. If you have been following my human’s story for a while, you would know of Ernie. Consequently, if you haven’t, Ernie would have been my big brother. But sadly he was taken far too soon after being diagnosed with Lymphoma just after Christmas 2020 – I mean what a bloody year that was!

If you didn’t ever meet Ernie, you can find out more about him here – he was very loved, I can tell. He was also a big dog, with a big personality. I hope I can fill the void…

At the moment, I am keeping all the family on their toes. I’m eating plants (I mean, who has that many plants indoors), I’m chewing slippers, avoiding toilet training at all costs and ensuring I am a lap dog all day, every day. So far, it is going well. I am annoying them, yet they continue to show me affection.

I will keep you posted on how I am getting on. Currently, I am still little, so I haven’t properly formed my personality yet – I’ll update you soon on what life is like as a Basset Hound.
