Catch up with all of the doggie do right here. People have especially wanted updates on the new puppy, Charlie. Here’s your page.
Impulse, my JRT that we call “Imp” is eleven years old. Her companion, SamHenry my late Labrador Retriever, had been her great friend and companion. Sam was always so gentle with Imp. Two years after his death, I determined Imp was getting too old to sit around and so was I so the sire of SamHenry was bred to a dog I had here with me on a trial basis and loved. There was a big, laid back pup in the litter and I knew that had to be Charlie. The breeder let me have first pick. If Charlie turns out as we hope, we could show or breed him to have some fun and profit since his sire was a champion.
Charlie is young and obnoxious but Imp is growing to love and accept him. We almost lost him to the Parvo virus which he caught when someone put him on the floor at the vet’s when he went for his first shots. That is why you keep young puppies out of public places. But we took him to the best animal hospital and he made it. He was so cute that the doctor called in AFTER her shift had ended to check on him.
And now we are home and leading real life with an active puppy. Today he made his first, deeper bark. It is very exciting. Hope you enjoy the Charlie and Imp stories that will follow in film and words. They are characters.
The new bone pool is a big success.
