Puppy love!

He’s here, he’s here, he’s here!  And he is the BEST!  I cannot even explain how in love with this little dog I am right now!

Here’s what little we know about our pup: He’s about a year old – they estimated his birthday to be August 1st 2011 but we ave no way of knowing exactly.  He’s a Bluetick Coonhound and German Pointer mix.  He came from British Columbia and could not be cared for, and that’s how he ended up with the Quinte Humane Society.  He’s not exactly house trained and he has major separation anxiety.

Yes, he peed in the kitchen the first day we got him, yes he has now peed on the carpet twice as of this afternoon, yes that’s likely to happen a few more times, yes he climbs on the kitchen counter, yes he jumps up on our bed when he’s not supposed to, yes he keeps us up at night with playing with his toys, and yes he does bark and howl when we try to put him in the back of the car.  Cross your fingers for us that all of those things WILL change please!!

Honestly though, the good outweighs the bad.  He makes me laugh with his funky sleeping positions, he genuinely wants to be around us all the time, he wags his tail so hard it is constantly hitting something, he snores very quietly, and he’s an extremely quick learner – sit, stay and lay down are coming along nicely!!!

The house is quickly becoming his own, and as the days go by he is more and more comfortable here, which is so nice to see.  We’re both extremely happy to see our family grow and our house become a home to this little pup!

Here are the other 31 days of House to Home.

  1. Ahhhhhhhh Puppers! So cute!!! I’ve never had a dog before but several of my friends have had crazy puppies that settled down over time and with obedience training. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you (and your belongings, lol). Surely all the love you give him will cure him of his woes. Congrats!
