Well in a first step we are going to see a rescue Pointer on Monday, he has some separation anxiety issues (which with us both working from home we could address so the rescue people are quite keen on us) so we shall see.

Long story short the rescue route failed miserably for us as the pointer was way too big (thankfully has found a home on a farm now) so instead we took on a Jack Russell they were re-homing.

However on taking her on (being told that she had been rehoused through no fault of her own, come from a happy homes etc etc) it transpired that she suffered terrible separation anxiety (could never settle and even if one of us left the room leaving the other two she would have a nervous breakdown running back and forth barking), wasn't properly house trained and had a real problem with blokes (Although she was fine with me), after a bit we realised we just didn't have the skills to sort all her problems (really pissed me off just how much the previous owner had fucked her head up and then bullshitted the rescue place about how she was (cannot deny not being a bit pissed of with the shelter as well as they seemed to have taken everything on face value)) and as we were only fostering at first they decided best option would be to home her with a specialist psychologist via Dogs Trust who might be able to sort her problems systematically.

So being left with a heart broken 6 years old, and a missus who realised that she really wanted a dog as she coped brilliantly with the problem hound we went down the puppy route on the understanding that we could start from scratch getting things right, we now have a French Bulldog who is pretty good (bar the odd defiant piss on the kitchen floor) and growing fast.

Reason for this rambling nonsense is insurance, we are getting quoted £40-50 a month and part of me is inclined to just put say £60 a month into an account to cover this on the proviso that if we don't have to spend a fortune we still have the cash when she passes, but not sure really, any ideas?

Put the money aside. Pet insurance companies are a nightmare.

Sounds familiar, ours is a social butterfly wants to know everyone and be in everything, she can be a dickhead and a right thick twat at times although mainly in a funny way!

We are doing puppy classes with her after the previous debacle to mix her with more people and other dogs and she is doing dead good.

Bit of a gamble and not a chance I'd want to take. For run of the mill routine stuff, you'll be fine with this and probably end up ahead of the game, but if the dog has a serious accident or gets a serious illness that requires (say) an op or ongoing treatment over a period of months, vets bill can quickly run into thousands. We never wanted to be put in the situation of not being able to afford the treatment the dog needed (or being able to fund the 1st 6-9 months and then facing difficult choices around what we prioritised) so have gone down the insurance route. Like all insurance, it's really poor value if you don't need it, but when you do it's a life saver. Fortunately we haven't to date so pardoxically I'm very happy that we've pissed a load of money away needlessly Smiley
