Awww, my new additions!
My MIL has planned for weeks to get my FIL a new puppy for his birthday/Christmas. My son had pestered me a bit for one but we have a very aged (17-yr-old) black lab who has declined and is really a LOT of work to maintain daily. Well, then I stopped by to see my FIL's new puppy...that was all it wrote. I went that night and got his sister, a red husky. She was working out so well that I went tonight and got another sister, a black husky, LOL!! The only poop or pee I have cleaned up has been from my old dog :( Funny thing is, this one I got tonight has been a little scared and hasn't wanted to potty out. Finally after 3 trips, she peed outside. I was sitting here checking my mail and heard someone getting into the cat box. I wanted to nix this as my old dog has the disgusting habit of EATING cat tootsies. I looked, and the new puppy was squatted in the cat box POOPING!!! LOL, I guess it was better than on the floor, right? Jesse is the red/white pup and Holly (for Christmas:) is the black/white puppy. They seem so intelligent and while they are whipping around here together now, still seem a little more managable than the troubled black lab puppy we had last year and had to get rid of. I've taken Jesse out to the coop with me each morning so I'll take the both of them tomorrow and see if I can't train them to NOT eat the chickens, LOL. That was the deal breaker with the lab we had to get rid of but I didn't work with him all that much. Anyway, I'm excited and had to share! Lori
