AND -- right now there are four new Hooligans at our House! We are excited and happy but Mom and Dad are... not as excited and happy. Someone dropped off four little black puppies in our driveway yesterday. They are around ten or twelve weeks old. There's no way to tell what kind of mix they are so we are calling them All American Mutts. We are taking them to the vet tomorrow for health exams and Mom is hyperventilating at the thought of how much this is all going to cost. But we have a great vet who is willing to let our humans make weekly payments on the bill. So, maybe all is not as bad as it first seemed.
We are looking for puppy raisers. Those are well balanced people who are willing to raise a puppy the right way and teach it basic obedience skills and give it lots of positive socialization opportunities. Puppy raisers are not easy to find. On Friday, Mom and a couple of her friends are going to do some preliminary aptitude testing to see if any of the wee hooligans might be suitable for assistance dog training. We'll update the blog about that over the weekend.
In the meantime, we hope you are all happy, healthy, and hooligan-ing all over the place. Big Woofs & Licks from our House to Yours!
