Our pets

Beagle is finally dry, but won't speak to DH. I just took her for her walk, and she seems to be fully recovered from her traumatic experience.

Well, as you can see in Sunday's dinner thread, we got a new baby, born April 1st. Her name is Arwen after the elf lord's daughter in the Lord of the Rings books/movies. We just felt lost without a pug in the house. We've had 1 or more for over 16 years and I have always had a dog in the house since before DD was even born, 37+ years. It just felt off not having a doggy in the house. We found her and she's a beautiful little pug that had a pretty black mom and a handsome fawn dad, plus 6 adorable siblings. One of which really stole my heart and I wanted to bring her home too but she's tiny, tiny, probably not even 2/3 the size of Arwen and has some problems eating and drinking still, so they aren't letting her go just yet, if ever because she's special to them too. Mom and Dad are pets of the couple we got her from and are obviously well loved and kept. I can already tell she is going to be a daddy's girl.

Mork and Mindy aren't quite sure of her yet. She's less than 1/4 of Mork's size and probably just over 1/4 of Mindy. They act like she's going to turn into the Incredible Pulk (pug Hulk, ha, ha) and get them.

Medtran, congrats on the cute new family member. The cats better wise up soon and train her while she's still smaller than them.

"Arwen" - IIRC it's Welsh for "noble woman"

Congrats on the new arrival.

Rosie the Tortoiseshell Cat has settled down in her role as ruler of the house.

Until recently she has been ignoring the back door into the garden when it's open but this weekend she has started going to the door and sitting staring at it when it's closed so she's probably ready to start going out. However, it's been throwing it down with rain for the last few days so I'm not inclined to be my lady's escort so she'll have to wait!

She's made a fine old mess of the hand-embroidered cushion on the kitchen chair, which is her favourite sleeping spot. I know, I shouldn't have let her sleep there in the first place! Anyway, I've removed it and she's decided to sleep in an old wicker cat-carrying basket shaped like a short tunnel, which has long since lost its door. I've put an old blanket in it and she seems to like it despite swearing at me every time I walk past.

medtran, I can't believe how tiny Arwen is! So cute! Wishing you and Craig many happy times with your new furbuddy.

MC, glad to hear Rosie has finally made herself at home. It also seems like she's training you nicely, too. Have fun, you two!

Medtran, sorry to hear of the loss of your Pug, but welcome to Arwen! We have also had at least one dog in the house for the past 40 years and it was very lonely the past few months. I like Pugs but we have never had one. We have never picked a dog...they picked us. One time we were playing with a Pug puppy in a pet store and it liked chewing on DH's beard. LOL DH used to hate seeing those dogs penned up so we would go in and he would ask to see each one of them so they could get a chance to get out and play. Eventually, the employees got to know us and would ignore us, knowing we were not interested in buying. Eventually, the pet store closed.

Madcook, glad to hear your your Rosie is settling in.

Rusty is adjusting and getting used to us, but he won't play. Apparently no one ever played with him. That's sad. If I try to play he runs and hides, but I would probably do that too if someone 10 times bigger than me was jumping around waving her arms in the air. LOL

Addie
, I don't think Teddy did a Dastardly Deed. He made some young lady very happy IMO. LOL Cute little puppy. Rusty is our 6th dog. They all have different levels of intelligence and all have different personalities, just like people.

Well, Teddy did it again. There is a woman who has a mutt female that is about four months old and in heat.

Spike and she had their dogs out on the property at th same time. Of course Teddy could smell her the instant he got out the door. Spike as one of those leashes. Before he could lock it, Teddy was off!. He ran up to the mutt and Spike started to apologize to the woman. She told Spike she wanted her dog to have one litter and then she was going to have her fixed. She didn't care who or what the male was. then again the next morning, spike was getting ready to go out the door. Teddy was at the back door jumping and whining. By the time Spike was ready, the female dog was back in the house. Sorry Teddy, not today.

There was a news item on tonight's news. It was about giving pets marijuana for various ailments. One woman gave it to her dog in baked doggie cookies. The dog was dying of cancer.She said it helped her dog with the pain and slowed down the growth of the tumors. Another said it stopped her dog from having seizures. Using it in these protocols for pets is not recommended by the FDA or the pet medical field. In fact for some pets it can be poisonous. I would suppose it depends on the amount of the dose. But I know if I had a sick pet, I would try anything to make it well. Illegal or not.
