Puppy Time!

The puppy is here!  After a long journey from Tennessee, two baths to remove the filth, a long collar-buying excursion, an even longer naming-the-puppy adventure; I’m finally here with pictures 🙂

Get ready for cuteness overload.

First of all, we named her Marshmallow, or Mel for short.  Something about her white squishy face just called out, “Marshmallow!” 🙂 When she is a lady, perhaps she’ll go by Mel.  To be professional, of course.  But for now, Marshmallow is settling in and doing wonderfully.  She already got to meet the whole human family, Blueberry, Leroy, and Major the cat.  Positive socialization is starting off  strong!

Marshmallow is 10 weeks old.  She is spayed and will be up to date on her shots.  We will be working on crate training, socialization, house training, and basic obedience.  Mel is curious about the world around her.  She is slightly cautious, but ready to play and explore.  She is loving all the human attention, and desperately trying to woo the adult dogs in the house into some wrestling and play time.  She will need a committed, life long, adopter who is willing to  make her the best dog that she can be.  And I will need an adopter who will fall head over heals in love with her- not just as a puppy, but as she goes through the challenging teen years, the frustrating adolescence, the slowing in adulthood, and the tender years of old age.

Black and White

Nothing is cuter than a black dog and a white dog in black and white photographs.  🙂  And I’m just gonna put this one out there- I am obsessed with pictures of dogs cuddling.  So here are two of my favorites.  Jora is a very big cuddle bug, both with me and Leroy, but the minute I start to creep across the room with a camera, she jumps up to say HI to me.  So she’s been a challenge to get the “cute-sleepy-good-puppy” pictures of.  I will keep trying!

We lub when mom stays home from skool to write da tesis papers.

Just a day in the life of Leroy

This one is not truly a cuddling picture.  But don’t lie, it’s adorable 😉  Jora kept hitting Leroy in the face because she wanted him to play.  But he was already tucked under the covers and ready for bed.  He’s pretty lazy for a 2 year old pup.  At least he’s tolerant 🙂

 

Any questions about Jora or the adoption process can emailed to me (Casey, aka Leroy’s mom!) at Casey@caseyheyen.com.  Please share her story with anyone looking for the perfect family companion!
