Update on Copper (formerly Stuart Little)

Thought I would post a picture from the day we adopted Copper (last Saturday), and also give you an update on the little guy.

I took him to the groomer yesterday, and he looks and smells so much better! I had given him a bath on Saturday, but the groomer did such a GOOD job on him! No more flyaway hairs or odor. I haven't been able to get any new pictures of him yet...maybe this weekend. He and Miley seem to be inseperable, although I get TIRED of hearing them squabble. Miley is still attempting to be the alpha. Everytime we pet Copper, she "chews him out". So we try and pet her first, feed her first, etc. She also doesn't share her toys very well. If Copper has it, she wants it. But regardless, they are always together, except at night. They sleep in separate kennels. Copper has only had one accident in the house so far. He hasn't quite picked up ringing the bells to go out yet. He'll get there. He loves to cuddle, and Miley is fine with that, as long as she's on the recliner with us. She likes to lay at the end anyways. He likes to be right by me. SO it all works out.

I sent his picture to a Tibetan Terrier Rescue group in the UK, and this was her response: "Your new little dog is definitely a Tibetan Terrier and he's a lovely looking boy. This type of colouring is becoming quite unusual and sought after so you are very lucky." She also gave me advice on how to take care of him. I was glad she took the time to email me back! I want to make sure we give Copper the best care that we can. He is SUCH a good boy, and we are so lucky we found him!

Renee, Miley, & Copper too!

How fun to have an expert in TT's confirm Copper's breed! I know that you'll love him just the same, but it will give you a kind of handle and place to start with getting to know him better...how wonderful that the rescue cared enough to correspond with you! Now, you'll need to get in touch with an American TT group, too...Ha! You'll never be off the computer .

He's so handsome! Glad he and Miley are so attached, sounds like siblings.

P.S. Your whole family is good looking!!

I loved the whole story. I love Copper and I agree, he and you are lucky to have found each other. Now, I want to see pictures of his grooming. I have to see your little boy all spiffed up.
