Hi all! Y’all don’t want to hear me apologize for the fact that I can’t remember what day of the week it is, right? Cool, we’ll skip that part.
Three of our babies now have families and I have up-to-date pictures of everybody but Tristan. When I took the pictures we knew Tristan already had a home so we didn’t do new ones for him, but his family now wants an update so I might do more when I get home if my family doesn’t do it first. Right now I’m visiting Kevin so I can’t.
Here’s Beorn, named for Bjorn the Beserker from The Hobbit, the shape shifter who can turn into a bear, because our boy is basically a living teddy bear. We just found out a few days ago that he will be going with Tristan on the transport to his forever home on Friday!
Brindle’s our second baby who’s going home soon! She is getting an extra week to get strong, so we’ll have her till a week from Friday. Our Brindle had such a hard time when we first got her, it’s so great to see how healthy and strong she’s become.
This is little Charming. He came to us at 2.2 pounds and has climbed up to eleven, only two and a half pounds left than Beorn, who’s so much bigger than the rest we legitimately think he has a different father. Charming might look rough and tough, but he’s a big baby. He loves hugs and he’s always looking for a mother figure. He actually tried to nurse from my cat, Toby, the other day, much to Toby’s displeasure. He got swatted in the face for his troubles, but that didn’t stop him from continuing to proclaim his love for Toby, our older puppy Poppy (who likes the babies) and our old lady dog Frisky (who doesn’t).
This is baby Leo, my sister Emily’s favorite. She is going to study in London next year but loves Leo so much she keeps joking that she’s going to buy him a seat on the plane so he can come too. Leo is one of the most social of the puppies, which is saying something. He’s definitely a lover, and even though he weighs over ten pounds now he still loves to be held on his back like a baby. He has adorable black spots coming into view all over his body, though he was almost pure white when he first came to us.
(If any of these puppies look a little muddy in these pictures, it’s because they all snuck under the porch steps and dug a disgusting mud pit of puppy joy and had completely soaked themselves before we realized what they were up to. They all had to have baths, as did I, but red clay leaves a little bit of a stain on white fur. Not permanent of course, but that’s why his paws are orange.)
This is Peeta. He has a very sweet and mild personality. He and Charming are definitely the quiet, sleepy ones of the group. He likes attention but rarely barks for it or climbs over brothers and sister to get it a la Leo. He’s a very relaxed and friendly little dog. Peeta has very lovely dark blue eyes and is almost pure white except for a gray spot on the base of his tail and a couple of scattered small ones.
This is little baby Romeo. He’s such a loving little guy, and very playful. He also happens to be ridiculously cute, and his cuddliness definitely exacerbates the effect. He’s one of the most adventurous puppies, despite the fact that he’s one of the smallest. He likes to follow wise older puppy Poppy around like a big boy. Romeo does have an adoption application pending, I believe, but nothing has gone through yet so you can still apply!
To apply to adopt any of these puppies, go to rutherfordcountyhumanesociety.org and click Dog Adoptions under Applications. For more information on any or all of the puppies, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a nice weekend everybody, and thanks for reading!
