Good afternoon everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past month or so. Life has just been way too busy! Between work and new puppies (yes, you read correctly – puppies!), my days are filled with work, sleep when I can, and taking care of 2 new little puppies. Before I introduce the puppies here on my blog, here are a few pictures of the “big kids” taken the day before we adopted.
Jackson being super cute!
Jeffrey taking time out of his busy day to take some selfies with momma:
and Miss Penny!
Now, on to the puppies! ❤ ❤
Please say hello to Jasmine Grace and Shelby Lynn!
Our local humane society posted on at the end of April that they had a litter of 8 puppies! Lab mixes and they were ready to be adopted! I called that day and got some information. They had their adoption application online and I printed it out and worked on it. Its a 5-page document! The next day, we went down there, and went to look. Out of the 8 original puppies, 4 were left. 3 girls, 1 boy. As we were watching them play, another girl got adopted.
On April 27th, at 9:30am, I got word that we were approved (kind of no brainer..right?) and we could come down anytime. We took off at noon and got there a few mins shortly. We wanted the girls. Their original names were Eleanor and Sylvia and we were very lucky. One of the girls had a pending adoption and the lady called and changed her mine. The other girl was also pending and the lady couldn’t afford the pet deposit for her apt and land lord denied her. So both girls could be ours!
The photo above was taken in the room where you get “get to know them”. They are sooo sweet. Shelby (the one NOT looking at me) is a licker! She loves kisses and will give them back to you! Jasmine is sweet…a little cautious but at the same time, very vocal. She’s our barker! So we finished up the paper work and by 2pm, they were home with us!
This is the look they had in the vehicle. On their way to their forever home to meet their older sister and 2 brothers!
Exploring their new yard:
Shelby’s first selfie with mommy
At the vet for the first time. They did great! Our vet loves them!
This was the morning after their 2nd day. They get up between 5 & 6am, ready to eat and play!
Shelby thinks the water dish is a toy.
By Day 3, they figure out there was FOOD in the elevated dish! So it got moved!
They are such angels when they are sleeping.
Little Shelby ended up getting a UTI and she had to go to the vet w/o her sister for the first time. She did very well. She’s all better now!
Afterwards, they got little puppy dentastix!
The other are doing very very well with Jasmine and Shelby. They see Jackson as someone who can run with them and he kind of does, but has has trees to get away. Shelby really is interested in him and barks at him. LOL. Penny has already accepted them and runs them into the yard, like come on, this way, girls. You play out here. Jeffrey keeps an eye on them…from afar…about several feet away. But they all get loving from my husband and I.
I will be back later with another post. Just trying to play catch up. I ended up taking over 100 photos of these sweet girls in their first 3 days. LOL! Surprised? I’m not!
Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂
