Although, i can't lie, he feels like a baby.
The story goes: last Monday i got some information about a situation and this dog Jake. All we knew is that he is 10 months old, happy as can be, might need to be neutered, and if someone didn't take him, the owner was just going to basically let him loose. So me and my love of animals, coupled with the fact that Christopher has been wanting a dog again, ever since Gypsy had to leave us. i make a phone call and emails start shooting back and forth. We set up a meeting with Jake for Friday. We are super excited, that this time we will have a puppy that we know some history of.
So the dog was brought to us on Friday, and out of the car comes this bouncing, happy, fluffy Wheaton Terrier. Oh. My. Gosh. He is so adorable! We managed to get more of the story that the owner put him on a lead from basically 7 am until 10 pm daily. He was so full of knots and mattes and was dirty, but oddly, didn't care. He was just so excited to see people! We kept him. He has been a challenge to say the least, but fun when he behaves! We took him to Petsmart the next day and had him shaved down, had an oatmeal bath to soothe his skin and got the "superior treatment." (We were giggling at the name).
So even though it has been rough teaching an "old dog new tricks", he will be so much fun when he is trained.
I have to share photos with you of the before and after trimming.
After the trim!
Looks totally different, huh? He is such a softy though and i think enjoys being naked! Oh! And we renamed him Marvin.
We thought he would be a good distraction in our wait and that is turning out to be true!
