Re: No-name Boston

We got him!



Oh, we love you, little no-name piggy!

We're picking him up in Texas tomorrow, and then heading down to my parents' house.  He's going to have a really exciting weekend, so I hope he adjusts to us well!  I'll feel better once we get him home and he can check out his permanent surroundings.  EEEEP!

Theo...I am in love...

As I posted before we are in the process of possibly adopting a 10 month old Boston from a friend of a co-worker...Well we met Theo last night. I am in love. I really hope this works out! I think my husband has reservations because Reggie is our only child canine or otherwise. But I think it will be good for Reggie to have another dog to play with. Theo is so god damned cute I can't even stand it. He is a big boy, 23lbs at 10 months old( Reggie will be 2 in December and is 18-19lbs). He has cute black spots between his eyes and down to his nose. Love love love I am in love...
It will probably be at least Monday until I hear anything...It will be a looooog weekend!

Any thoughts on changing a dogs name? We are huge NY Yankees fans ( Reggie named after Reggie Jackson--Mr. October) and Theo is named after Theo Epstein, GM of the Red Sox! EEEEEEEK! How can we allow this name in our house?? I was thinking that is probably doable because if you adopt a stray you would choose a new name an they eventually reply to it, right? Eh...Theo!
bad dog

Back to the drawing board......

Remember those fabulous/great 'indestructable' dog toys? The flying squirrel one?

Yeah

Vinnie just tore the head off of his raccoon and promptly gutted it.

The carnage is all over the hallway. It is a sad day indeed.

RIP little raccoon dude.

digging in the cookie jar

I keep Elliott in my bathroom while i'm at work during the day. It's pretty big, he has a lot of space to play. I also have my closet in there and today when I came home from work the closet door was open. He had somehow managed to get inside my closet (the door is one of those folding sliding ones) where I keep his dog food and tore a hole in the side of the bag. I was kind of mad because I didn't know what to do with all this dog food that I just emptied it in this large cardboard box until I buy something better to hold it in.

So then I turn to Elliott and my anger goes away as I notice he's rather bloated looking. His sides are sticking out more than normal.. my little piggy indeed! I can't help but laugh because he looks kind of funny all fat like that, but I feel bad for him because he's got to feel uncomfortable.

I took him for a long walk and play in the park but all he did was pee.. no poop. I know it's gonna get messy when he finally has to go because puppy chow gives him diahrrea and that's what he ODed on. I have been feeding him a different dog food brand and was planning on getting rid of that puppy chow bag before he chewed his way through.
