Puppy Pics

I’m sure you all remember Daisy who came to our house a few months ago. Well, she followed our old dog into the woods, and she never came back. I’ve heard a dog since then barking (happy barking), and I’m sure it’s her, so I think a neighbor through the woods kept her. She had a collar, but it didn’t have our name on it, so…. Anyway, I know any of our neighbors would take good care of her, and we really weren’t ready for another dog, especially since our other dog is old. But now a new puppy has come into our lives. For some reason, people tend to dump unwanted animals in our area. This puppy was only about 8 weeks old, and we all instantly fell in love. We took him and got his shots and wormer, and we got an identification tag. My son also got him a tag with his name (Duke), our phone numbers, and our address. But, now, we have to keep him in the garage because we don’t want him running off. So there is much poop cleaning in the garage. We’re working on a better way to keep him restrained since we can’t afford a fence. I thought I would post a couple of pictures of the little darling. The first picture is at about 8 weeks. The second picture is now (a little less than 3 months), but the picture makes him look smaller than he is. He went from 10 lbs. to 20 lbs. in 3 weeks! So heeerrrreeee’s Duke!



See all the little pieces of trash around Duke? Well, that’s only part of what he does to the garage. i wish I had taken pictures of some of his little disasters. Soda cans, potting soil, poop…

Pictures of Daisy

I’ve had some people ask me to post pictures of Daisy, my new puppy who came to my house from who knows where. It’s really hard to get pictures of a dog that wants to constantly lick my feet, so I had to take these through the french door. That’s why the quality might be lacking just a bit. I was hoping she would come closer, but this was the best I could do for now.

The first picture is of Daisy, but you can also see my twelve-year-old dog, Chipper lying in the background, looking as if he’s dead. LOL

In this second picture, Chipper has roused himself and is looking to see what Daisy is posing for. 🙂

Adorable, huh?

I don’t know what possesses a person to just drop off unwanted animals out in the country, hoping somebody will take care of the animal THEY weren’t willing to take care off. And, of course, I live in a rural area, so now I’ve acquired a new puppy. I guess we’re going to keep her because I don’t know what else to do. If we take her to a shelter, she could be euthanized. And our ARK (no kill shelter) is always full. And this puppy is so CUTE. My son has already named her Daisy Duke and calling her Daisy (sorry, Kait, I didn’t mean to have a dog with the same name as yours). When she first came a few days ago, she would bark at my dog, Chipper (who is 12 years old and doesn’t need that stress, LOL) like she was going to eat him up. I think they’ve finally made peace, though. A sad thing is that when this skittish little dog finally let me pet her, she lay on the deck with her front legs stretched out and her head tucked between them as if she were saying “ok, you can beat me now”. I almost cried. Was she mistreated before or was she just scared? I tried to get a picture of this cute little thing last night, but it was too dark. I’ll try to get something to post later. I have no idea how old she is, so I don’t how long it will be before we’ll have to have her spayed. My husband said she looks like she’s three or four months old. I’m thinking at LEAST that, maybe a little older. She has big paws, so she’s probably going to be big. She’s all one color, sort of a light brown. She has floppy ears. I have NO idea what kind she is. I’m already going to have to pay to have my male cat neutered in a few months, so adding cost for another animal isn’t making me happy. But what’s the alternative? I guess we have a new pet to add to our menagerie. So now we have two dogs and two cats. At least that pesky rooster that was coming to our house is gone. LOL
