Throwback Thursday – Alfie

Meet Alfie, the star of this week’s throwback Thursday.

4-year-old Border Terrier Alfie has been with dad Darran and his family since he was just 7 weeks old.

Alfie came from a breeder based in Portsmouth. Darran chose the breed as he was a fan of Benji from the 1974 film of the same name.

Alfie didn’t make the best first impressions when he joined the family.

‘Whilst going through his chewing phase as a pup, he decided to have a nibble on one of the kitchen cabinets in the utility room. ‘Don’t worry I said to my wife, the kitchen is only a few years old, so we can easily get a new door from the manufacturer.’

‘So, following my advice, my wife phoned them, only to be told that the kitchen had been discontinued.  I was quite literally in the dog house as they’re always MY dogs when they get up to mischief.’

‘I unscrewed the door and immediately drove down to the show room – Thankfully an amazingly helpful salesman named Tony managed to locate a replacement door from their aptly named ‘Hospital stock’ in the warehouse!’. Explains Darran.

Thankfully, Alfie’s chewing days are now behind him.

We are always on the lookout for handsome hounds and pretty pups to feature in our #ThrowbackThursday blogs. If you would like to take part, email Becks at Hello@Buddies.co.uk.
