The new boy.

So, I needed another dog like I needed a hole in my head! But it was not a natter of need. As is too often the case these days, it was a matter of life and death for the poor little guy! He was (one of many :(  )scheduled to be euthanized this past Monday morning and, come Sunday evening, he had not been pulled by a rescue or otherwise adopted. could I let that go!!
Being a puppy, he was an instant hit with Boo and Bernard. Marley not so much, but he's already warming up to the idea.
These two are just running maniacs! It's great...Bernard tires him out, and he quietly goes to sleep in his crate.

He is amazingly well behaved for his age! He will sit and stay like a pro. He sat right in front of me while I was on the couch for at least half an hour! I timed it....and when my show was over that's when I gave up and got up...a puppy mind you! He's more obedient than the boys! LOL He comes when called and "leaves it" when I tell him to....I'm amazed. He must have had some training? So how does a pup like him end up on death row?!
And so as you can see he has been s welcome addition to the usual suspects.... Boo, Bernard and Marley......

...and Lucy, who has already made it clear she's the boss....and he's listening! (Although he pretty much ignores the cats.)

Cruiser, Rookie, Smokey and Cuffs are all just rolling their eyes...."For the love of God, she picked up another one!" They're pretty much taking it all in stride...after all they still outnumber the dogs by 1!
We're gearing up for our annual Christmas brunch at Mary's this Sunday. It'll be a good chance for the ladies to meet him!


  1. Oh my GOD he is ADORABLE! Pitties of whatever mix are my favorites - congratulations on your new pup!!

  2. Good luck with him...he knows you saved him, just as we did Moon & Copper!...:)JP
