A couple days ago, Brittney of Nashville is Talking featured a blog post at the Sylvan Park Neighborhood Association blog about two puppies who need a home. We’ve been casually looking (again) into getting a dog for a our family. I contacted Rob Robinson and last night we went to see the puppies. Of course we fell in love with them, who wouldn’t? The hard part was not deciding if we wanted one but which one! As much I would have liked to keep the siblings together, getting a dog a big deal and we need to take baby steps. So we settled on the female pup and brought her home last night.
She’s about 10 weeks old and will definitely be a medium-large dog. She has very odd coloring, lots of brown and black, some white on her chest and on her paws. What’s most unique about her are these blackish spots in various places. At first glance they look like burr scars or even worse, cigarette burns but they are really just spots on her fur.
Last night we kept her in the laundry room and already that has become her “place”. As happy as she was to see the kids this morning, when it got to be too much for she retreated to the laundry room and would not come out! She does seem a bit lonely and she follows me practically everywhere. She’s been whimpering and moaning some and she likes for me to hold her. I’m sure she misses her “pack”, it’ll take some time for her to become part of our “pack”.
Let’s see, what have I not told you? Name? You want to know her name? Well so do we! We have yet to determine what we will call her. Rob and his wife were calling her, “Fatty” since she was, at first, the largest pup of the litter. Yeah…we’re not going to keep that up. I’ll update when we’ve come to a decision.
Well, I’m sure there’s lots more to tell, but I now have to go and “gear up” our home with puppy accoutrements. More later. There are a couple of pictures up on Flicker. Oh boy…I think The GMan just “sampled” her dog food! Ewwww!
