Our vet said that Max could be taken outside to do his business so long as he stays on the leash and on our property and away from other dogs. It was very amusing watching KoD and Max frolic outside.
Max made decent use of his outside facilities and was rewarded with a treat.
One of the boys complained “Why don’t we get treats when we pee outside?”…..
Sigh. Kids. Gotta love ’em.
So, yes, we named our dog. He’s now called Max McDoggle Ears, Earl of Kibble.
Anyhow. We have to get him neutered or spayed or whatever (I will spare you the graphic description offered by the young ‘uns in this house). We have been told that we cannot own him the day he is fixed, halachically, and we have to “sell” him to a non MoT for that day.
Can anyone explain why?
Yesterday we went to North Shore Animal Shelter to look at dogs, and we fell in love with this 10 week old German Shepherd Mix puppy. KoD and the kids have been trying to convince me for a long time to get a dog and I have been resistant. But look at his adorable face! How can you resist that shayna punim?
The boys had no clue we were bringing them home a puppy – they were so shocked and surprised and totally fell in love instantly!
We are crate training, and he can’t go outside yet for another six weeks until he has had his rabies shot – so we have a lot to learn. But Doggle (we will decide on a name soon) is so loved and so treasured.
The kids are on mid-winter break and have woken up early to play with him. It’s just so sweet to watch them all play with him.
