Meet Chance! Milah's new baby brother!
Isnt he Precious?!!?
We went to Camden today - back to the place we got Milah, so many sweet pups and dogs there, but unfortunately none we couldnt live without. So we came back to Lexington (where we live) and went to the local Humane society, animal control office, but struck out again.
Last try, we went to Pets Inc, a shelter also in town and well got lucky and brought this little guy home!!
He is supposedly 11 weeks old.. and I want to see what yall think his breed mix is, because Im not sure I agree with what the shelter said. But he is all white except his face and speckles on his legs, he has one big black spot on his back, and you should see his curly tail!!
Chance had been adopted like a week ago, but the family brought him back because he bit their son.. Hello! Hes a puppy! Anyway, he got lucky when we walked in and gave him a second chance - lol - though it took us ForEver to come up with a name! Nothing seemed to fit! The other family had named him Gnarly, but we didn’t like that.
He is quite the little goober and is going to be a snuggler, very unlike Milah.
He does Bite, a lot. He also seems to be a bit, err... not as smart as Milah was at that age, he runs into everything! Its Hilarious!! Though I do have to give him credit for Already knowing how to use the doggy door! In One Day! Jason has already gotten him a new collar and a blue bone name tag.
Oh and one of his ears, so cute, the speckled one, has a little fold in it, so it doesnt lay flat against his head, I noticed Kessler's (RJM) ear kind of looks like it does something similar.. maybe? We try to unfold it, but it just pops right back!
Oh, good story – well interesting, So we filled out forms that asked us about how we would raise him and this and that, one of the questions was how do you potty train? We said crate training (variations of) When the girl was looking over all the stuff she asked us about the crate training and why we do that. I said well bc it works, its what we did with milah and when shes in there I know shes safe if theres ever a fire or a tree falls on our house (lol).. bla bla I know right where she is and I can go get her, I know she wont get into anything at night and so on and so forth. (paraphrasing) Girl: “well we have a no crating policy” me: “What?” confused, shocked… Girl: “we’ve seen too many dogs abused by crates” me: “I understand but its only at night” Girl: “would u be open to other ideas, like using a baby gate?” me: “oh well we do that as well, they would be kept in the kitchen with access to the back yard and porch when we are not home, the crate is only for a night” girl: “would you be willing to surrender the door to the crate to us?” HA What? I lied said we didn’t have a crate yet.. and told her we would do the baby gate thing, put him in our small bathroom.. Im sorry yall I lied, we aren’t going to do that. Hes going in a crate tonight and he will be perfectly fine. I was worried she wasn’t going to let us take him home if we didn’t agree to something. And I don’t feel any remorse for it. Though I understand their reasoning Completely! And respect it, but do not agree to abide by it.
Anyway… so much more to say but i cant think of it!
And Milah is loving having another playmate! such the social butterfly.
