Posting delay

Okay, so… we got a dog.

Which, YAY!

But, not YAY quite yet. Because said dog needs some adjustment time, and so do we. We’re doing a trial period.  He’s not used to us, we’re not used to him, and he’s got some issues. We have the leash-pull-y issues, the whining-to-go-out-at 4-am issues, and the growl-at-family issues. We’re dealing with a lot of stuff, okay?

So please bear with me, and I will update with posts and a couple of mini-reviews when I can. Mwah.  Meanwhile, Gunnar (I don’t like his name, and we’re thinking of changing it) says hi.Gunnar

  1. Good luck. A new dog, especially a rescue, will take time. You probably know that.
    How wonderful that you can give a dog life. Congratulations on your choice.
    BTW I really like the new page look. Very swish.

    1. We are slowly getting to know Hunter, as we’ve decided to call him. He has delusions of being Alpha Male (he and The CEO have been going back and forth on that one a lot!), but as we have taken charge and started directing his life, instead of letting him choose, he’s become more affectionate and a great deal calmer over the past three days.

      Whew. We were so spoiled with Hayley that I’d forgotten how much WORK a puppy takes! But I’m glad we could make a home for a dog.

      I like the new page too – thanks. 😉

    1. THanks, Liz!

      He’s getting used to us and calming down some (he’s still a puppy at 9 months, and he’s tiring me out) – I hope to see that his affectionate nature is starting to show.

  2. “but as we have taken charge and started directing his life, instead of letting him choose, he’s become more affectionate and a great deal calmer…” As someone who volunteers at a shelter, first of all thank you for adopting him. Secondly, you’re doing the right thing by taking charge and letting him know where he is in the family pecking order. Dogs are much happier when they know the rules!

    The re-design looks fab!

    1. Thank you.

      We miss Hayley so much, but we are learning to love this guy – especially as he’s getting more civilized!
