It’s been three months since pretty girl, Brandi (now know as Brandy), found her forever home. We checked in with her family to see how things were going. From the sounds of Brandy’s response and her dad’s, we’re going to say it’s going really, really well.
Richard here with an update on Brandy from both me and her. Brandy (dropped the i and added the y) is a highly charged young lady. Usually at 2 or 3 in the morning she has to go outside to the bathroom. She still needs training with basic commands especially while walking and heeling. She does quite fine with fetching and returning a play ball and responds to both sight and sound commands. Her table manners are impeccable as she sits before receiving either breakfast or dinner. I think she wants to be an Eyes, Ear, and Nose doctor when she grows up since in the morning after breakfast she hops back into bed and proceeds to practice her skills on me. Naturally, when I am getting my “morning exam,” her tiny tail is wagging about 1,000 rpm’s. Also, Brandy is very needy in that she does not like to be left alone even though her brother, Satchel, is with her. The two of them get along extremely well. Christine and I canceled our trip to Italy in October since we felt it was not fair to her for us to be away for a long period of time. Brandy is a joy and we love her oodles and oodles. Now, Brandy wants to tell you her side of the situation; her computer skills and progressing at a remarkable rate.
We’re doing the happy dance for Popper and Albert who found their forever families on Saturday! Best of luck in your new homes guys!
We love dogs! And hold a special place in our hearts for those more “mature” ones.
Hi Everybody! Did you all know that August is Senior Pet Month? Did you? Well I did – and I think you know WHY I did. I am a senior and proud of it. Yep – thirteen years old and still hanging in there. I know lots of cats and dogs who are older than that and still healthy. We know that has a lot to do with our human companions and how well they take care of us but also sometimes it’s our genes (designer genes of course!).
Anyway, here’s some info from BlogPaws that I thought was super interesting:
I think I live with the perfect human family. Why? Well for many reasons but one of them is we are ALL “Seniors” ! That’s right – my parents are both SIXTY FIVE OR OLDER……. :D :D :D :D so we’re all hobbling along together taking care of each…
