I did something nice for one of my neighbors at Christmas and was rewarded with this beautiful baby. It bothered me at first. I mean, who gives a puppy as a gift to someone who isn’t your girlfriend or child? Getting a dog is a major commitment and that’s a decision I usually make for myself… but she is so freaking adorable. What can I do? Working name right now is Chica, but I’m up for suggestions. Angel has earned a hundred names over the years so my list of possibles is short. lol
Thanks guys. She’s doing great despite the fact that the losers who bred her sold her and her siblings starting at 4 weeks. She was only 5 weeks when I got her and she was the second to last one. This is wrong, people. A pup shouldn’t be taken from mom until at least 8 weeks. They need time to become socialized with other dogs and to wean off the mother No wonder she’s been trying to nurse on Angel.
That aside, there’s two things I now remember about puppies. One is I got more sleep on Spring Break in Cabo than I have the past week. And two, I no longer have any socks, just a dozen pairs of pee mops.
Piper looks good. It’s amazing how fast they develop. Have you started her training?
I decided to go with Daisy. When I lived in Mexico I took care of a boxer named Daisy who was the inspiration for getting a boxer of my own. Daisy (dos) is twice the size she was a couple of weeks ago. She’s just now the age when she should’ve been adopted. I’ll try to get a pic if I can get her to sit still for a second.
ive got her fetching and dropping, just got her shaking last night. She used to listen to come, but as she got a little older and got a mind of her own that stopped. right now im working on speak and kill. still working on the house breaking but i think a lot of that is because of my work schedule, ill come home and sometimes shes gone and sometimes she hasnt, and i gotta get up really early to get her in the morning.
Those two are adorable. They have fun in the snow?
They love the snow, but Angel grew up on Folly and I think she misses the beach as much as I do. When we head back to visit from time to time she starts sniffing the air around Summerville and starts getting excited as we cross the connector. By the time we get to Folly she’s practically jumping out the window.
How old is Magnolia? She looks like one of those dogs that can’t get enough affection. Big lovey lapdog?
HA! I took my shepard mix to the groomer once and they put pink bows in her hair…I was not happy.
Since everyone else is posting pictures, here’s my trio. The coonhound is our love child as the wife and I got her last year, she still acts like a puppy. The other two were our dogs we had prior to meeting, with my dog (the shepard mix) being the smartest by far.
