We got these sweet babies at the Humane Society yesterday.
This sweet little guy is "Parker". He is the puppy I mentioned in my previous blogs about dogs. He is only 4 months old and they say he is an Australian Cattle Dog mix. I don't know a whole lot about that breed, but he seems so eager to please. I wasn't crazy about the puppy phase, but he listens really well. Haven't caught him chewing on anything he wasn't supposed to.... yet, lol. The potty training is going OK, I think. He pees in the house, but everytime we take him out he goes in the grass first thing. I know we just have to work very hard and be consistant with him. I am guessing once he is fixed it will get better? Any advice in this area would be appreciated!
Here is "Ivy" (we kept the names the shelter gave the dogs):
She is only 8 months old and her papers say her predominant breed is Collie???? Do you think? I guess she was adopted out as a puppy to a very nice family, but they surrendered her back to the Humane Society because they were moving. She is already housetrained and is so well mannered. I can't believe she is only 8 months old. We feel so blessed to have gotten her.
Just wanted to share.... I haven't taken them out running just yet as I am recovering from injury, but my son has and he says that the dogs take HIM for a run, lol.
Oh..... Stupid question.... They were microchipped before they left the shelter. I was given a tag for each of them.... Uhhhh..... Do I keep the tag with me to be able to claim them if they are lost? Or does it go on their collar? I was going to ask them at the shelter, but I had already embarrassed myself when I asked them to give the exact date I could bring Parker in to be neutered.... Evidently he has to "drop" and they can't give me an exact date. I didn't know that! They mentioned before they don't neuter before 6 months, so I thought it was an age thing.... Oh well!!!! Any puppy advice would be helpful! I feel like a new Mom, lol....
Now I am off to KOHLs to spend my KOHLs cash from Black Friday. Going to get my 3rd "animal" for the weekend.... That is a DYSON Animal, lol!!!!!
