Walking, walking, walking - Good Walking! Wait!

Posted 09-05-2009 at 05:11 AM by LookinForMayberry

Bigun and I can be seen going through this game about every hour and a half, after he's performed the "potty" & "business" tricks. He's such a smart dog. (We haven't made ONE mistake in that game, yet!)

The first days walks were mostly just keeping him moving on the lead -- and keeping ME from tripping over him. Yesterday we TRIED to keep him left, but the right side was so tantalizing with all those smells! This morning, he managed to stay left with little...

A Good Lookin' Little Guy

Posted 09-04-2009 at 12:32 PM by LookinForMayberry

These were the vet's first words when he came to check Bigun over. (I knew that!)

His checkup came out good, and now he has a rabies tag to go with his ID bone tag (selected for his home town of Bone Cave, TN).

As my glossy black, 10.1 lb Cocker Beagle prances out to the lobby, three LARGE dogs all take an interest at once. And he makes an immediate about face and beats feet back into the exam room. Had he not been so scared, it would've been funny. I had to pay for the...

Our First Day Together

Posted 09-03-2009 at 05:50 PM by LookinForMayberry

Poor MRS1885 and her DH were running late to their date in Chicago, so we didn't get a chance to do much more than say hello. "Here he is -- he needs a bath BAD, gotta go." God love her.

(The folks in Chicago had made an impossibly egregious demand that she be there by four o'clock. I don't know yet if she made it, or is now stuck with forty more homeless dogs.) I hope she made it, and is now resting up in a quiet room with a nice glass of something cold and refreshing. ...

Six More Hours

Posted 09-03-2009 at 04:26 AM by LookinForMayberry

MRS1885 had a tangle of transport problems that she's surmounted, and in the end it turns out that she will actually be driving right through the town where we camped. Bottom line: my drive is cut to maybe 20 minutes.

Unfortunately, it sounds like she's having to drive 40 pups all the way from TN to Chicago. What that woman will do is a wonder. If each of us gave a tenth of her willingness to help an unfortunate animal, there would be no need for shelters. God Bless Mrs1885.
