SATURDAY STUFF

Heya Hounders, Shelby Belle, the puppy from you know where, here with the Saturday post. Well today is supposedly gonna be a busy day for the dad. he has to take Sophie up to Confederate Ridge Animal hospital for her bi-weekly weigh in. Then there is a county rabies clinic with really great bargain prices and dad's hoping to get Alex, Boru and Radar their rabies shots for the year. So he's got a big plan but who knows if he'll get it all done. Radar is doing O.K. I haven't had much interaction with him yet. Abby got in trouble yesterday for not being nice to him and Jack got in trouble today for the same thing. Jack doesn't have the patience that Jubal, J.E.B., and Homer have and when the pup ambushed him he kinda over reacted. Of course the pup has a very alarming squeal when he is frightened and that makes it seem like he's dying when in fact he hasn't really been hurt; just really, really scared. Poor Homer J. seems to be able to take unlimited Radar abuse. He's got more patience than Jubal even. Sophie is afraid of Radar and runs away from him. It's pretty funny when Radar chases her and she's scampering away. It's a good thing that she lost all that weight or she'd drop dead from a heart attack from running so fast. The bigger Radar gets the less likely Abby id to confront him, but Jack will probably have to get some lessons from Mom and dad about good manners with the pup. The other day Radar cornered Alex in the hallway and he got rewarded with a rapid sequence face slapping. dad couldn't find any injury to Radar but once again he got frightened and squealed. Then today he stuck his face in Boru's chest and Boru was a bit more restrained. Radar has already mastered sitting for treats. he's doing quite well getting in the distribution line when mom or dad are passing out goodies and he does a very good sit. Are we sure he's really blind?

We still can't post videos and photos are difficult. Dad will try to get it fixed.

Sounds like it might take a bit more time for Radar to fit in properly. I hope my handsome friend Boru is okay after that encounter.

Raising a new sib is difficult, but you guys seem to be doing a good job. Hope Sophie has more good news from the weigh in

You think Radar is going to outgrow his squealing? We doubt it. Merci has lived here 5 years and just about anything can make her squeal like she's being killed. And she can see! We wish you better luck.

Well, it sounds like Radar isn't letting his blindness stop him from just being a puppy. And puppies do take a lot of patience, for sure!

See ya!

Poor Radar. I hope everyone eventually gets used to him. I just know I'd be nice to him from the get-go, but Kat would take a while. She likes things just the two of us. When we fostered a husky for a month, she got totally bent out of shape and had to be on a leash for the entire month!

PS. Wilbur wants a report on the rabies shot experience because he has to go get his shots next weekend.

that sounds like our house right now, and we can all see each other. Maisie screams like we are all killin' her. All we're doing is helping her find her place. Mom is struggling to keep on top! BOL

STEP UP TO ADOPT A PET

If you can, please consider opening your home to a homeless animal, preferably a dog or cat or other domesticated animal; livestock does better on farms and wild animals do better in zoos and parks. Your local Humane Society or SPCA or Animal Shelter has a wide selection of could be, should be, pets looking for new homes. If you can't adopt, perhaps you can at least become a sponsor. We'll show you how to help out Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) on our blog page, but you can help out any organization of your choice, but please help; contribute or volunteer.
