And here they are.....
We got these two...uhhmm...cuties two weeks ago tomorrow with very short notice. As in 24 hours notice. A co-worker's wife's co-worker (are ya still with me?) had to downsize her home unexpectedly. I found out about them on a Monday, Dear Hubby and I decided YES on Monday evening and we had them in our possession by Tuesday evening.
I was hoping to get them that weekend so we would have time to prep the house but the owner was so upset about having to give them up, that she asked us to "rip the band-aid off" and take them right away.
This is Dear Hubby and Reagan. Reagan is the father of the other one and is on the right in the picture at the top. He is a registered Chocolate lab, 3 years old and pretty daggum lazy. He LOVES to have his head rubbed behind his ears. His second favorite hobby is eating......everything. We just don't let him so it's not a very productive hobby.
Dear Hubby and Nelson.....the son.... He isn't registered but he is a pure-bred. He is 11 months old and all puppy! He's taller than his daddy and much quicker. His favorite pasttime is eating his toys and tormenting the PIA cat, Tinker. They don't exactly get along yet. Tinker is pretty mad at us for letting her go from Queen of the castle to dog snack. She'll get over it, though. As soon as Nelson grows up....if he ever grows up.
The family they were living with had three pre-teens that apparently let the dogs do what they wanted when mom and dad weren't around. But "the boys" have come a long way in two weeks as far as discipline is concerned. They don't jump up anymore, they sit and wait for their leashes to be put on and pretty much pee and poop in the same place. (Didn't want to know that, did ya?!)
So please forgive me if I only have one of my two challenges finished for this month. I was working on a much larger commitment!
