It's a new puppy! (No virtual baby showers, please.) Well, technically she is probably a pre-teen at 9 months old, she certainly acts that way. We adopted her from a herding dog rescue agency 10 days ago and wow, has she livened up the place. She's a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd cross and will definitely get me up and moving as her exercise requirements far exceed mine (and those of our Senior Dog). It's going to be fun to train her to be a responsible trail dog. She arrived to fill the hole left by the death of Mhairi at14 - if you remember the silly photo that was my avatar, that was the girl.

Jeannie, how fantastic; I'm so pleased for you!!  :VeryHappy:

 

Your adolescent puppy sounds gorgeous and just about to enter the "Kevin the teenager" stage, so the best of luck with that!!  ;) :lol:

 

Sorry to hear about Mhairi; our lab is 13 now and getting very frail (rather like my mother; he's about the same age, in dog years!  ;) )

Hi Jeannie,

 

Congratulations on your new teenage puppy!  What a delightful addition to your family. I'm very happy for you.  :happy-day:

I know you said we shouldn't throw a virtual baby shower...but...well, could I send you a virtual bucket of puppy treats anyway?  Or, oh, we could play songs about puppy love on our virtual forum radio!

 

You didn't tell us the sweetie's name?  Not that it would ever cross Jo's mind to announce it in the forums banner, or anything.

 

:emoticons-group-hug:

Buckets of treats would be very welcome, she's like a gannet - eats anything in sight. She's Aisla (eye-la)' another Scottish name. The vet's staff were groaning when they realized we had stuck them with another 'it doesn't sound like it looks' name, they wanted to change it to Lucky! :)

Hello Jeannie

 

A new pet is fantastic and it is amazing how they change the routine of the house to suit themselves. All of a sudden you think "Hey, wait a minute!...I'm being manipulated for sure!" Dolly Dumpling (my avatar) moved herself in, must be 3 or 4 years ago at least and in no time had things marching to her drum, even Ma living next door in the annex has been whipped into shape!  I'll finish by saying she began staking out her soon to be, new home, even before Baby had pushed up the daisies.  

 

Any pictures of Aisla?

 

Much love to you all.

Pictures of Aisla? If I can ever get her to stand still or figure out how to get one from my non iPhone to the computer! This pup moves like greased lightening.... She came to us having been an outside dog living under a porch or maybe a dog house. She had gorgeous sun streaks (my hair never looked so good), except for the top of her head. Can you say over-processed peroxide blonde? Give us another month of being inside more and the last of the puppy fluff gone, then I hope to have a photo of her in her permanent, glorious russet coat.

 

Dolly Dumpling is gorgeous, Amanda! Mind you, I'm partial to kitties that look like border collies. ;-)

 

Jo, I'm sorry Spike is showing his age. I've gotten fond of him through our chats.

Jeannie, it's even more wonderful when our taking in of said pet also betters their life. Dolly moved in, not because her previous home was deficient in anyway but because she could control this one and everyone in it! Beware the little, cute ones, they got wills of iron! Dolly is affectionate, wonderful and she can also be crotchety which we find hilarious, she knows how to throw her weight about for sure!

 

Take care.
