More adoptions & big and smalls -WW

HEY EVERYONE!

I hope you are all enjoying your summer. whether that be jumping into lots of lakes and playing in the nice green grass, or for the two legged enjoying the sunshine and being with your furry best friend.

I have been continuing enjoying my time working at the shelter, and just wanted to share a few more happy adoption pictures! This little guy although may look like a full grown Shih-tzu still had his baby teeth coming in so he is definitely a mix of something a little larger. Lhasa Apso perhaps? What do you guys think? Either way I had the privilege of getting to know him on a few walks and play times till he was happily adopted into a loving forever home, I even got to say goodbye to the little one first hand.

Not only that but in accordance to adopt a cat month, I am happy to say more then a few kittens have been adopted this week too!

Today my friend came over with her adorable American Bulldog Savior, and I quickly got a few snaps with him and the boys, before he proceeded to gallop on about his merry little way. Kirby was a little nervous when Savior got too close (but him being still a rambunctious pup) I was still proud of the progression he has made with dealing with the bigger guys as he handled it all pretty good 🙂

I couldn’t get over in this picture how so very small Kirby looked compared to Savior! Aren’t they just the cutest pair!

Sorry not much of a post today, as this week for some reason I feel a little at a loss for words, but I wanted to get this up in usual time:) Hope you guys all continue to have a amazing week!

NOT so Wordless wednesday- Poe and the intruder!

We missed mischief monday again! How could we, and this time there was lots of mischief to write about. So I guess better late then never. I got the privilege of puppy-sitting one of Kirby’s best buddies Rocco. I know you guys got to see him in a post about a month ago, but man has he grown! He is developing quite the personality as well,which works perfectly for Kirby’s rambunctious self. I took lots of pictures to share with you guys, and uploaded a video about it for those who want to see him in action.
Rocco although cute and playful like Kirby, is quite different than any dog I have ever owned – and no its not just the random snorting he gives every couple seconds, but it has helped put him up there! (Caught a bit on video- see below)

Kirby for example likes to show off his skills by ducking and running under Rocco to show off just how much faster he is, than poor Rocco could ever be, and Rocco simply uses his weight (as its all he has in his defense) to try and pin Kirby for a good play-fight. Rocco is very much a puppy and though he’s learning doesn’t have all the social manners Kirby is used to, that added to him weighing a good solid 15+ pounds already, I had to be sure to supervise that Rocco’s play tactics didn’t accidentally squish the poor little Kirbster XD.

Because he has never met Poe before (our family dog) who has a bit of anti-social behavior due to his past, I had to be on top of my game when introducing the little squirt to him and “his territory”. So I used some of the tips I have mentioned before in my videos. Poe as I suspected wasn’t in for being buddies (unlike Kirby) as when Rocco tried to play with him, Poe would give a little don’t-bug-me growl and walk away. Other then that though they co-existed fine, and Poe was quite content looking a the two bozos
– immature pups (trust me he was thinking it) play and scurry around, not very interesting for a 8 year old boy who would rather lounge with us humans, then have to intermingle with these two rambunctious pups, as they ran and played…and ran and played circles around him.

I did get one shot though of the three of them snuggling together, or should I say Poe lying down and these two snuggling up to him,and him being to lazy to move. Never-the-less it was quite adorable!

Here’s the video, pictures are below it.
