Heidi joined the household when she was 6 months old. I was looking for a large blue merle boy to keep Rosie company. How I ended up with a monstrous small but lively sable and white girl I do not know. Six months later I see advertised a blue merle boy, born only 5 days later than Heidi and I arranged to go and have a look at him. Chance, luck, fate, destiny, call it what you will. The advert had only been placed online 5 minutes before I spotted it and for once I did not prevaricate and called straight away. Heidi and Max are soul-mates. They loved each other from day one. At last, someone Heidi could bully. She calls all the shots, instigates the play, starts the chase.
