Reporting back! :) My mother and I just got back from Semmes, and Lyric officially is in his new home!! Everyone should give a cookie and round of applause to Conway for being so kind as to take him in, and she is really nice in person too. Conway, if you’re reading this, I loved meeting you! And I can tell he’ll be absolutely spoiled; more so than he was here, if that’s possible!

It was a pleasure to meet you and your mother as well!!!

Very happy to report that Lyric is settled in and snoozing away. The smoke has cleared and overall everything went well... He peed on one Christmas present twice, but with all of the excitement I can't blame him.

He clicked well with my bostons, not so great with my bully at first (lyric did fine, boss did not). But after a good training session with both of them we are definitely on the road to a higher place :)

I am VERY pleased with how things are going so far. I can't wait to send off his DNA test so we can find out a better guess on what type terrier he is.

Ah, thereís that excited peeing I told you about Hopefully he gets out of that habit, the crazy dog. I think he really has already gotten attached to that selected person I also mentioned ;)

Iím excited to find out myself! Has he done better about you petting him? I was a bit worried about that text, since he was slightly frightened when we first got him in the house, but then he warmed up rather quickly. I think he really is a more pack-orientated dog, too, since when he met my dogs, he did much better (after the initial scrambling to figure out who-was-who, and who he could beat up without them retaliating too badly he quickly figured out the weenie mix my mother told you about was the lowest of them.)

Oh yes he is totally fine now. Things are also much better this morning between him and my bully. Lyric is fine, Boss is the one who seems so offended. But he is doing well with him this morning. We will get to a friendship :)

He slept through the night well last night, no crying at all.

LOL offended. That really made me laugh. I’m really relieved to hear - er read - that, then. He’s pretty easy to please, I think: warmth + favorite person = happy Lyric :)

Hubby wants to rename him something less girly LOL. I am trying out a few things... Ricky seems to be a hit, play on Lyric.

He will be getting neutered on the 21st so say a little prayer for him. Boss goes in to be neutered on the 20th.

PSHH. Fine by me Maybe heíll respond to something more manly than Lyric. Maybe that was why he liked ignoring me! Ricky is insanely adorable :)

Crossing my fingers and definitely hope that the both of them will be okay.
