Last year we lost our dog Hamlet who died at the ripe old age of 16 years old. We brought him with us from England to USA and he was our first born.

I have been dilly dallying about getting a new dog for quite a while but for some reason I have been holding back. We explained to number 3 child about heaven & that was where Hamlet went when he died.

Well the reason for the background information is that I was just looking at dogs on Pet & I saw a puppy that looked like Hamlet. Number 3 pipes up from over my shoulder "are you looking at all the dogs in heaven mummy?"

My reply a quick outburst of tears!

Honestly, the things they come out with - they always manage to approach life from a different angle, it's constantly making me stop and rethink things, like when Anna saw her first windsurfer and said 'he's skateboarding with a boat'.

Love the name Hamlet.
