The new gal is a rescue puppy that was adopted by the oldest daughter and her husband after one of their dogs passed on. She wasn’t quite ready but her husband found this pup who needed a home. How can you say no to someone who needs a home? Especially when they are fluffy and cute?
They named her Nora (after Nora Charles from The Thin Man). It seems that people names for pets and pet names for children are popular these days. I’m not judging here as all of my pets have people names. It just happens.
The best guess is that it’s a corgi-cattle dog mix which they refer to as American Puff Ball weighing in at 8 pounds.
They have a bunch of lovely cats and a crazy dog named Finn. Seriously the dog is crazy. He is huge (90 pounds) and good spirited but his elevator doesn’t go to the top floor. He is a Catahoula Leopard Dog mix with crazy thrown in.
He will knock you over with friendliness.
Clean off a coffee table with the swish of his tale.
Move a sofa by putting his front paws on it. Get the picture?
“They say” he has gone to obedience school. I think he failed but he continues to get by because he’s lovable. I wonder what Cesar Millan would say?
We welcome the new pup to the extended family which has more animals than people (and that’s the way it should be!).
