When I came home today, I was greeted by this cute little face:
My sister had been visiting our local Humane Society in search for a puppy. I knew that she had been looking at a certain one in particular, but I wasn’t expecting her to get one so soon. Nonetheless, I wouldn’t be able to blame her either for not turning down this adorable ball of fur. She is a doxin/beagle mix and she just falls all over herself. :*
Tabor (my four year old golden retriever mix) doesn’t really know how to react to her. At first he stayed away from her, but I can tell that he’s getting annoyed and irritated by her. Macy just wants to play and Tabor just wants her to leave him alone.
Macy will just chase Tabor around the living room. They’ll get used to each other eventually, but I can’t help but feel a little bad for Tabor because she does like to nip at his tail and feet, and jump on him as well.
She’s not trained so my sister will have to train her and we’ll all have to chip in to take care of her because my sister does work a lot. It’s so fun to just sit and watch her. When Steven came home from school, we both just stayed in the living room for at least an hour just playing with her. She’s just adorable! Because she’s so little, she keep’s taking Tabor’s toys and dragging them underneath the chair. Tabor can’t get them back either since he’s too big to crawl underneath. Poor dog.
Just like Tabor, Macy comes running whenever my mom starts to prepare dinner and she hears the crinkling of ingredients and the smell of the different foods. As my brother says, now my mom will have two friends to help her cook dinner.
My mom is not the biggest dog lover, so she wasn’t exactly keen on my sister getting a puppy, but I think she’s relying on the fact that my sister plans on moving out soon. My mom made it quite clear that she’s not picking up any of her messes either. Though, she can’t help deny that Macy is cute. Tabor was definitely cuter as a puppy, but Macy is still cute. :love:
It was hard to take some decent pictures of her because she just jumps around and waddles away before I can snap one of her. I didn’t want to use the flash either because I don’t want to hurt her eyes! I managed to snag a few good ones though.
I’m sure that it will be an interesting next couple of weeks – or however much longer we’ll be keeping her – as she teethes and gets into everything like all puppies do. But welcome to the family, Macy. =)
