Seriously. Who could resist this face at their door?
I tried... Really. I have not wanted another inside dog since my Sheltie passed over several years ago. Although I love animals, when it comes to 'inside' I am a cat person. I love my two kitties.
So when this little guy showed up at my door almost two weeks ago, I tried everything possible to either find out where he came from or a home for him. Nothing came to fruition. I did know one very important fact... if the dog was still here when Bob got home on Wednesday night, he was permanent. My husband is a big softie. Bob came home on Wednesday night. By Thursday morning he had designed the new kennel... which included taking over the front deck I was finally getting to where I wanted it as a 'sittin' spot'.
Meet Honey Butt:
Honey appears to be a Brittany Spaniel puppy - not even a year old. He may have a tad bit of beagle. He is loving and a big cuddler. It's a race to see who gets the recliner first. He's housebroke and leash trained. Right now he is experiencing separation anxiety. I'd had him for over a week without any accidents in the house (except one the first day). While I was gone over the weekend, and left him with Bob, he piddled twice in the living room... right in front of Bob.
He needs to know we will come back when we have to go awake so we have a training program in place.
I am finally getting to a point where I can resurrect the blog. Today, we are spending the whole day in the garden. Progress reports as well as other goodies coming soon.
I'm still looking for books to review or authors to have as guests. Is there someone you'd love to know more about? Let me know in the comments and I'll see what I can do about setting them up as guests.
