Meet Spanky U. Rascal Patterson!! This is the new pack member! He was born on Jan. 10 and will celebrate his 7 week birthday with his new pack family tomorrow!!
I hadn't intended to get a pupper, but my rescue puppy adoption fell through last night when the meet and greet was a totally disaster! Connor met the foster parents outside, took the leash and he and Sebastian came bounding into the house at break-neck speed! He barrelled into his mother's room where she had the Beagle and Dachshund in order to let R2 meet the puppy first. Smokey, the Beagle was terrified, started barking and never stopped until the people and pup left! It was utter chaos..
Connor, our dogs, the new dog.....it was a nightmare!!! Finally Sebastian started barking back at Smokey and lunged... I wasn't going to work.
I cried all night and was heartbroken. After talking to my vet this morning she suggested a pup might be a better fit for our pack. Found a Sheltie pup for sale in the paper and we set out to see him. Turns out it was the same lady I bought R2 from 12 years ago! Like R, back then, he was the only male left. He was and is perfect!
So far so good with bonding issues!! We've launched ourselves on a new adventure!!
