I thought that our search for a canine companion was going to be long, but I was wrong. Although, I did put an application months ago, but I never followed up on it, so that’s on me. This time, I put the application, but we did a few inquiries about it, and it paid off because we were fortunate enough to get a handsome Shepherd/Lab mix known as Lokie.
We decided to rename him Charlie. He is a young dog, full of energy and very smart. Abby finally has a younger brother. By the way, they liked each other from the first time they met. Thanks a million to the SPCA of Anne Arundel County for taking care of Charlie and for making the process of adoption easy. Special thanks to Kristen, Nick, Jamie, and Gabby. You are the best!
I decided to document our search for our new addition to the family since it seems like others are going through the same thing. Anyway, I filled out the first application on August 2020; then in September 2020; and finally in January 2021; the applications were to foster and adopt a doggie.
When it comes to breed , I’d like a Pit Bull, Rottweiler, German Shepherd, Australian Shepherd or Dogo Argentino. Watch and see, we might end up with the smallest Chihuahua ever!
One thing I am really not looking for is to adopt a puppy. Puppies get adopted very fast while older dogs linger in shelters for a long time. I will write about senior dogs on another post. With that being said, I’d love to get a dog that is, at the youngest, 3 years old. Watch and see, we might end up with a rambunctious puppy. No!!
Well, let’s see what’s in store for us. Stay safe and warm.
We are currently looking to add another canine companion to our family, but we are being patient about it because it has to be the right fit for us specially for our Abby.
If you decide to add another dog to your family, make sure that you consider the following: age, gender, breed, and temperament. As long as the introduction of the new dog is done properly, you will enjoy having multiple dogs at home. Wish us luck on our search of another canine companion and stay safe!
Walking with my pack is something I do every day. It’s good for your canine companions and for pet parents as well and-for those who’ve met me-this is something I recommend all the time.
Aside from walking, another activity that my pack is quite fond of is napping. We wish you all a Happy New Year and may 2021 bring us all health, prosperity, and the ability to go back to what our world used to be in the past. Stay safe.
Sorry for the late post, but we do hope that you enjoyed this past Christmas with your loved ones. We celebrated with our support bubble because we are being careful and doing our best to stay safe during this pandemic.
I hope that next year we start to see a bit of a resemblance of what life used to be before this pandemic showed up. Merry belated Christmas to you, your furry kids, and family. Stay safe.
Remy is what I would call a gentle giant. Our Abby looks so small next to him, and he looks so imposing, don’t you think? But you know what? He is actually a very sweet and sensitive doggie. We are glad to have him with us.
I’ve noticed something interesting about Remy. He likes hanging out with my mom, and she enjoys his company too. It seems like we have a total of 2 guard dogs. Take care and stay safe.
Maggie belonged to a client of mine, and I was fortunate enough to care for her multiple times years ago. She was imposing, to say the least, but she was also very loving with her humans and other dogs.
We are going to start looking for an addition to our family in the near future, and these are the breeds we like: Pit bull, Rottweiler, German Shepherd, and Australian Shepherd.
Wish us luck! The funny thing about it is that many times you don’t get the dog you want, but rather the dog you need. Stay safe.
The pandemic is wreaking havoc in the world, and if you listen to the news the number of infected and deaths because of it is rising. Although it does feel gloomy and scary, I am grateful to have our dogs and family with me. I choose to focus on the positive, and I hope you do too. Stay safe!
By the way, One Day At A Time, was one of my favorite shows which also includes the new version of this 1975 TV series. Did I just date myself?
Seriously speaking, this is certainly a trying time for all of us, and for some people a pet is the only companion they have, therefore communicate, via Zoom, Facebook, etc., with them. You will probably make their day. Let’s help each other out and stay safe, and yes live one day at a time!
