And now there are two puppies in our home. Meet Bear, Hank's brother. Isn't he darling? On Thursday I heard from the breeder Diane that there was one blond boy and black girl still available from the litter Hank came from. I was so surprised because I had never heard about another blond boy, I thought we had met all the puppies. She told me she thought I wanted the biggest dogs so she brought me the biggest puppies. I promptly told her I wasn't ready for another puppy, Hank was enough and was pouncing on Little Buddy every chance he got. Then she put the thought in my head that puppies usually bite each other and get tired playing so they don't bite their humans as much. Well played by her I think because then I kept thinking about that. Then I made the mistake of asking for a photo, oh my! Big brown eyes and a black nose, he looked so sad. Hank has big green eyes and a brown nose. Apparently they were pretty inseparable when they were together, an now that the other boys were gone he was whining a lot. Now how can I live with that? We talked, and I hemmed and hawed but in the end I know I would always wonder about this little boy. We sent her a text last night and he was still available. She was thrilled, well of course she was and even gave us a discount! I called Mr 20 and arranged for him to meet us at the breeders and we did that this afternoon. Bear is darling, a bit smaller than Hank for the moment and for now a little more subdued. That can all change when he gets used to us. Hank was soooooooo excited to see his brother. They smelled, and smelled, and circled, and Hank ran around and nibbled a bit on his brothers ears. Just call us puppy crazy here, I am afraid that is what we will be for a few months at least. But then they will calm down and everyone will be as happy as can be. I always wished Max had a friend, he would have been less sensitive and happier when we left him alone for a few hours. Now Hank and Bear will have each other. It's nice to have a sibling isn't it?
Okay off to puppy duty, and it's raining out, bummer!
