My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…

We Got a Puppy!

We welcome today a new member of our family: a ten-week-old chow/shepherd mix puppy named Tato (short for what my husband calls him–Potato. I like Tato better :))

The best part of it is our 1 year old cat Sata seems to love him. She follows him everywhere and is always trying to get him to play. I’m very relieved for that.

We got him from the humane society; they were having a “Home for the Holidays” event at the mall and that’s where he was. He’s had a rough life; he was abandoned in a crate along with another dog when he was much smaller. But he simply loves to be held and loves people and other animals. He’s very laid back too–not wild at all!

It makes me laugh because Phil wanted a small dog–no bigger than 30 pounds–and he’s probably going to be easily between 40-60.

Now comes the fun weeks of house breaking him–he’s piddled a bit on the floor here and there and had one other accident, but that’s to be expected.

Edit: Here’s some pictures!

  1. How how adorable! I hope you’ll post some pics sometime 🙂

  2. Yes; I plan on doing it here soon. 🙂 I need to take more but the little guy won’t stay still long enough!

  3. aww he’s too cute!! I bet he’s a great addition to the family.

  4. Congratulations to you, he looks like such a sweetie! I love the photo of the two of you!

    That’s *wonderful*, to adopt a shelter dog! There are so many sweet and wonderful dogs in need of homes.

    Bless your big heart and your new family! Can’t wait to see photos as he grows up.

    Em : )

  5. P.S. Boo Boo puppy, the dog in my avatar, was a rescue puppy.


  6. Rescue puppies are the best! The one my family got when I was in high school was the greatest dog ever. Sadly she died in October at the age of nine 😦 I still miss her and get teary eyed thinking about her.

  7. I’m in LOVE with him!!! And what a cute name!

  8. He is absolutely adorable — congrats! We got our golden retriever Rudy from a rescue group, too; he’s been an absolute joy to have around. He was 40 pounds underweight when we found him in 2004; he’s gained that and then some since! Hope your family — and Tato! — have a great holiday!

  9. Awww…. Congrats on the new puppy. So adorable.

    And sorry about your recent loss. I can totally relate. I still get misty-eyed about my childhood dog.
