MEET HEATH, OUR NEW PUPPY !
BISCUIT'S LITTLE BROTHER IS HOME !
Gosh, he has been here about 5 hours and I'm exhausted. It's like the day you bring that 2nd child home from the hospital, and have a 4 year old, too. Egads!
The breeder's son and girlfriend delivered him, saving me a long drive. He is a 15 week old GOLD little boy, our HEATH, with a super luxuriant coat. He is petite, and will not be nearly as big as Biscuit. But this tiny package has a repertoire of sounds that is unbelievable. I can hardly wait until 3 AM LOL.
So far so good, though he is pretty needy, wants to be held. Is an amazing snuggler and loves to make eye contact. He was the breeder's favorite and she struggled with whether or not to keep him. So he's very attached to her.
He's peed outside so far twice, but inside is sailing the pee pad like a kite or shredding it to pieces. ;-( Bad puppy. He has not pooped at all, so I just KNOW he'll soil the crate. I already have a strong feeling he's not going to be as easy a puppy as Biscuit. But, Lordy, is he cute!!!
As for Biscuit, he has been a WONDERFUL big brother. His favorite thing is to lie by the ex-pen with his chin on his paws, watching Heath-y. It's like Biscuit's new TV. LOL They have played and both seem really comfortable. Though I do worry for puppy's safety because Biscuit weighs 6 times more than him. Heath got too close to Jesse the cat, so Jess took a couple of swipes. But mostly so far intra-species relations are much better than expected. Of course, we are giving Biscuit tons of praise and attention. He's got his very patient look on. That is just the sort of trusting dog he is. Whatever we do, it's ok with him.
OK, now I'll attempt to download some photos in my jangled state, balancing exhausted ragdoll of a puppy (jeez, is he still even breathing???) on one leg and having had much too much wine for dinner to distract me from the annoying needy yipping puppy in its ex-pen. The best photo is obviously the one the breeder took. Wish me luck!!
I'll post again re how the overnight part went. Wish me MORE luck!!!!
HAV A GREAT DAY ! ~~AMY & BISCUIT~~
and HEATH-Y, TOO !
