Meet Trouble #3
aka Rajah! He is the newest addition to our family. My mom was not released from the hospital as planned. Looks like she will be needing heart surgery, so any prayers you can spare... we'd greatly appreciate them. That also means, that she will be "out of commission" so to speak for at least 4-5 weeks (as in recovering in the hospital) and then, who knows how soon she will be back to her old self to take care of her dog. So, Trouble #3 moved in with us.
He is just a baby still, only about 5-6 months old. But he thinks he is a big, tough guy. He and I are getting to know each other and I am getting better at understanding/reading him, which really helps with the "peeing in the house" problem. LOL. Good thing I have tile floor throughout the house.
Anyway, he's only been with my mom for about 3 or 4 weeks. He was a stray of sorts who was turned in to a friend of my mother's . He was just skin and bones and just so sad looking. But, I can say, that he is looking much better and is overall a really sweet dog. Only bad habit, other than being not quite house broken.... he steals food like there is no tomorrow. It gets pretty tricky trying to cook with him in the house, because he tries to get at everything on the counter.
Oh, and I guess another habit he has adopted... he sleeps in my bed. Yes, I know, totally bad, but I am such a heavy sleeper when I finally do sleep, that I never notice him jumping in. And the odd thing is, he never did that with my mom.
So, that's what's new in our neck of the woods.
Have a good one.
