New dog and other things
Well, there is a new member to my little family of pets. His name is Prince Peat (yes, spelled like the moss). He is a two year old black standard poodle (supposedly) and his akc papers came with him.
Meet Prince Peat
My old girl Miss Kitty has been diagnosed with DM and her spinal cord is slowly degenerating. Apparently it is not a painful disease but in time she will be losing her ability to get around. I wanted to get another dog established with Anza. I was thinking of another standard puppy but was dreading the idea of another puppy. I would need help raising it as I have to be at work and my schedule can be erratic at times. With Anza, I had my niece here to help me with her but she has since moved out and on to her own life.
Well, I had told a couple of friends that I was thinking of a new dog and one of them knew a friend that was looking for a home for this guy. The woman had only had him for two months but her female golden retriever hates him. The boy is still intact and I think that her intentions for him was for breeding. Honestly, if I were going to breed, I would not use him but to each his own I guess. Anyway, I took him on.
He is so much of a love but as usual there is stuff. He's hard headed, not an usual standard poodle trait. I'm not sure if that is the way he is or just not trained extensively. He knows sit and shake and that's about it. I'm used to my girls who think quick as lightening and super responsive. The more that I look at him and the more that I interact with him, I wouldn't be surprised if there is lab in there somewhere in the background. His eyes, ears, and chest shape are telling me that there is something else in him but I could be wrong. He could just be a very pet quality standard. Anyway, he is here and he's a super love so I think he is a keeper. And the big bonus.... he's housebroken and doesn't shred things.
There will be only one of you for all time. Fearlessly be yourself.
