New Puppy

Sammy included the following video in his post yesterday about choosing a new companion for him. I agree that it was more fun than choosing who will be our next president!

They chose Mazie, her name for now.


She and Sammy seem to get along fine.

But being a puppy she does have things to learn about not climbing on furniture, etc. So maybe it would be best if Sammy didn’t completely follow her lead right now.

    Dear dog in heaven, so glad I don’t have to make a decision like that. Must be heartbreaking having to leave the other behind.

    I thought Colette endearing – perhaps a little shy, unlike Mazie who clearly understands human psychology and knows how to ingratiate herself without losing a moment’s time. Beautiful portrait of her. Out of curiosity, and possibly a stupid question: Why are some dogs’ tails curved like Mazie’s?

    Congratulations on the “new arrival”.

      We found Collette so sweet as well. It was such a hard decision; both of these were adopted and then returned, so we do not know their history before that, but have recent notes. Collette was returned as “too energetic,” so we were not sure our days at work would be fair to her or Sammy. Mazie was returned as she is not good with kids, so might be harder to adopt. Mazie did jump on Sammy (when we were introducing both to her), and he reprimanded her and she immediately backed off. Anyway, we actually talked about adopting both but we have a 2 dog legal limit in our community.

      As for the tail? We were wondering the same thing.

    maybe sammy eating the TP was a hint that he needed a puppy for his inner soul. 🙂

      We were wondering the same thing about the TP. Sammy is definitely much more alert with her around, and still smiles, and is the same love bug with us. They are squabbling, but he is setting the boundaries and telling her what is what, so we think that is a good sign.

  4. I totally agree, and how wonderful that another deserving pup has the chance at the life they so deserve! I wish them all the happiness and wonderful years of great memories!!

      They’re still mourning Montana, of course. But being able to help another pup makes it somewhat easier. And the pup is a blessing for Sammy.

    ditto all of the above

    being in their environment at the “kennels” showed each dog – what they would be getting – and having their most recent background situation – also a good way forward…

    enjoy…the new journey

    This is SO GREAT!
    Let the fun begin! LOL!

    I never understand the limit of pets.
    I know people who have two dogs that are outside all the time and in a dirty enclosure and are scratching and itching and my heart breaks for them.
    And then there are people with a small “herd” of dogs who enjoy air-conditioning and when outside, they have chaise lounges to relax on.
    Yep, doesn’t seem right.
    In my area, each town has different limits.
    Some are 2. 2 dogs and 2 cats.
    Another is 4 total. but only 3 of one species. i.e. 3 dogs, 1 cat or whatever.
    My town is no limit, as long as they are vaccinated and registered.
    Another reason why I don’t move.
