Welcome Stallone!

So Stallone made it here on Sunday - what a handsome big boy he is!  He's about 21 lbs, a total sweetheart, playful, and want Sasha to desperately play with him. 

He grudgingly accepted his bath, and of course got the zoomies afterwards... He's playful, very much puppy like with his antics.  And he was super quiet in the crate during the night and even patient in the morning, waiting for me to get him.  But excited to get out with a case of the wiggles.

Him and Sasha did do some bonding over bird barking/watching.... And he is learning about her space bubble as you can see by the photo!

He's not a fan of the snow we have and most of my back yard looks like snow, but it actually compacted down to ice... Poor guy went for a walk out there and fell in!  So we are coaxing him out with treats and he will come... It's a little more solid at the end of my yard - and he did get brave and venture out (and luckily did not fall down into it!)

 Its gonna be a challenge to complete his housetraning, but hopefully the snow won't be around for too much longer... He's a smart boy, he'll get it.

He has a vet appointment to check out the lump under his chin today, but in between that and play, it's snoozy time!

Teddy and Lola (Silas and Scully), best buds and doing great... Lola got to be famous by appearing in a shoe catalog with her mom!  Way to go!!!

Rue (Sylvia) who has come so far since being adopted... letting go of her fears and learning to trust... She also doesn't mind hanging out with the cat to get some neighborhood peepin' in! 

And there is Summer and Sandy - Summer jumped in the lake this past summer to get a swim in (who knew!)

 And while I think they are adorable in their sweaters, Sandy is not too much of a fan.  They are good playmates with each other and just seem to be peas in a pod!

 And here is Baxter (Mulder) with his new human baby brother...  awwwww

 And lovely Pippa () - She also got to visit Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach just like we did.  She's turning 3 soon too!

And a special shout out to our 17 year old cat Sarah.. while not a fan of all the rat terriers I've fostered, especially the ones that managed to sneak and eat her food... She has shown a lot of patience with the revolving rat terriers that we have introduced her too (which she basically hisses at if they get too close and basically acts like they don't exist)... She's battling early stage kidney disease and just got out of the vet for a 3 day stay of rehydration.  We are hopeful that we can slow this disease down and keep her healthy! 

I love getting updates, please forgive if I missed getting it on the blog!!!

We're Baaaack!!!

With the new year, I thought it was time to get back into fostering.... so here comes Stallone!  He's a beefy guy at about 18 lbs.  He has a salivary glad infection that is being treated (you can kind of see it under his chin, a bit swollen) so hopefully that will be all cleared up when he arrives next Sunday!  We haven't had a bigger dog in a while - should be interesting to see how bossy Skeeter gets with him and I'm hopeful we will be able to get him out to the dog park - hopefully he will enjoy the snow!
