It’s good to be home after the trip to pick up the puppies. I totally forgot to take photos when we took them out to the farm. It worked out better for Brad and I to drive to Savoy and pick them up and take them to the farm instead of Audrey and the kids having to get out. Originally, Audrey was going to be picking out the pups, but she needed time to get ready for them so the breeder picked out two females and kept them back for us.
They are adorable! So well mannered, playful, not fussy at all. They settled down in their crate in the back seat of the pickup and didn’t make a sound all the way from Savoy to west of Denison. I’m very impressed with their temperament and behavior.
Brad and I, and the interior of the truck, all smell like a dog kennel at this point. The windows of the truck are down and it’s airing out in the garage. Brad has had his shower and now it’s my turn. We both got out of our stinky clothes as soon as we got home and just threw on something clean long enough to eat our Whataburger meals. We both took antihistamines to keep from getting all stuffed up and it seems to have worked. I imagine both the pups have had a bath by now.
They were perfectly comfortable as soon as they came out of their crate. Curious, romping around and discovering their new home. Waya was a bit overwhelmed with the pups at first and ran back in the house, but she and Zev both had the same reaction the first time David’s parents were there at the farm with their little Pomeranian dogs. They soon got used to them and I’m sure Waya will get used to the pups pretty quickly.
The breeder had all their paperwork, registration, vet records, the whole shebang. They’ve had their first shots and the breeder uses the same veterinarian that Audrey does so that’s great! He sent us home with half of a large bag of dog food and it’s something that the local feed store carries.
I took my knitting with me today when we went to the chiropractor and then later to pick up the puppies. I’m half-way through the last dishcloth for the stash I’m knitting for Audrey. This will make two dozen. She doesn’t need them right now so I’m going to store them until she does.
Time for me to hit the shower and then read for a bit before bedtime. I’ll get some photos of the puppies to post another day. Have a blessed Wednesday night, ya’ll.
