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 🙂
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.
More exciting puppy-ness to come as she settles in!
