Ok everybody, I know its been a long time since there was anything posted but the time in between posts will be much shorter.
Ok so for about a month or so Val and I have been getting more interested in getting a puppy. A playmate for Baby, that would grow up with her and keep her company. So over the past couple of weeks we've been going to the pound in the aims of rescuing a dog that would surely be put down and give it a second chance. For one reason or another we didn't end up getting a dog from the pound, be it financial, not the right fit, or timing what have you. One of my coworkers Aunt Fawn pitbull also just had puppies and we were close to getting one of the boys to add to our family until..... Yesterday we get a call from Val's Aunt letting us know that someone dropped off a little black and white pitbull puppy in her yard in Tucson. Immediately we were interested, we tried to get a picture sent to us but we couldn't, so as kind of a spur of the moment decision, and with what her aunt told us, we just drove down there last night to pick her up. She was everything we wanted and much much more, we didn't get home till after 1am and didn't get to bed till after 3:30. Last night we introduced Baby to our new little girl just to gauge her reaction, we did it inside our house and didn't do it optimally.
So we got up today went to Petsmart got her some things, then went to our parents house to show her off. We are happy to say that we already found a name that fits her. We recently found out that our paradise city...ShowLow has a BSL and dangerous dog laws in place. We've brought Baby their twice without knowing this information...ooops.... Anyway as a testament of fighting BSL we named our little girl Showlow... We find that it fits her quite well and we're both happy with it.
Ok so we did a meet and greet round two, I took Baby for a good 20min walk got her tired a little bit then Val met me with Showlow on the corner of the block, out of the house, so there is no protective behavior from meeting in Babys house...
I am pleased to announce that it went quite well. Its moments like this that make you feel just wonderful. Cant wait to bring our little lady into work and get her the works, dewormer, fecal check, ear medicine, All vaccines, microchip etc... Exciting times.
Heres some pictures of her and Baby when they met.
Enjoy! and till next update Punish the Deed not the Breed!!
