Our new baby (PICS)...

Recommended Posts

Apparently, we felt a brand new house without physical flaws needed some type of "breaking in". So we adopted Buster and brought him home today. He belches like a grown man, has farts to rival a breast-fed baby, he blows water bubbles when he drinks, snores louder than the TV when he sleeps, snorts while he gallops around the yard, is afraid of the dark, but somehow, all of that makes him all the more endearing to us.

 

Buster is ALL puppy--- clumsy legs with a horse like gallop, jowels that flap in the wind like a parachute, and a center of gravity similar to an SUV.

 

He's an 8 month old purebred Boxer from the SPCA. Frank has always wanted a Boxer, and the timing was right now that we have a huge yard and room in the house.

 

Pictures aren't the greatest... it was getting dark by the time we got home and I really hate TTL flash photos... I'll take more tomorrow when the lighting is better, and post them if I get something I like from them...

It's been pretty good between the two of them so far. We took Raven with us to the SPCA and let the two of them spend about an hour together, getting used to each other.

 

It'll take awhile for them to define their boundaries and dominance, but Raven is pretty patient and we're making sure to treat them both the same (ie, if I'm petting Buster, then Frank is petting Raven).

 

They're both playing real good with each other so far. We'll have some "extras" to teach Buster so he acclimates to our house better. For example, Raven "self feeds"--- she can have a full bowl of food for days, and only eats when she's hungry. Buster "time feeds"---- he gulps down his allotment in the morning, then again in the evening.

 

I started working with Buster tonight on basic commands (Come, Sit, Down). He's already responding quickly, so I think this will go pretty well.

So adorable! New fur-babies are the best! Our older dog was self feeding prior to getting our puppy, but we've had to switch her to being time fed as well. Absolutely no way to leave a bowl of food on the floor with our big mush-ball around! He gobbles every piece of food up in 2 seconds flat!

    • Hello Vernicula - Congratulations on your engagement! I agree with everything MarieSam previously posted.

    • Hello!! My fiancé and I are planning on a destination wedding and we are wondering if there are any recommendations for a travel agency to use. I’ve emailed some I found online, but find it tough just communicating through email before we decide where to book. After we book, obviously email is convenient! We are in the Niagara Falls On area and would love to sit and meet with someone but don’t know where to start. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you  
    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
