New Family addition!!

So we went out today and came back with this:



This is Whiskey, our 3 month old baby. What heartless person could abandon that cutie outside a shelter??

Congratulations!

What a perfect little poppet - and I love the name.

(The cruelty and callous indifference people are capable of truly boggles the mind. )

But Whiskey is lucky to have found you - wishing you much happiness, and lots of fun-filled adventures together.

Re: New Family addition!!

Congratulations to Dogma and Dogpa!

I'm feeling broody too like Oldhand. Guess I'll have to foster another one.
Miss having a puppy shuffling about in the flat and racing me to the bathroom.


P.S. Love Whiskey's colours - very Bernersennenhund!

Well if it is just the slippers, be grateful. But a chew toy will solve the problem. First put it in with your dirty wash because it will only be of interest if it smells like you guys. You can also put it inside a shoe to pick up the scent of smelly feet. The "new" smell for some dogs is very unappealing.
Good on you for rescuing the little one.

Already house-trained - bless his little heart! I assume you will be providing him with lots of slippers to chew - seriously, Whiskey needs chewy things in order to help his dentition. A good pet shop will assist you in that I am sure.

Ah, I see. Thanks, Dogpa. The Berner one has longer fur (or at least from what I saw in 'Net images).
