Default Introducing......

Boy, it's raining cats and DOGS in my neighborhood!!!



Torn between a few names right now- Walter White (from tv show Breaking Bad) or Scruffy.

Came home sunday night and was cleaning up when I looked out the window only to find a little cream colored dog running on neighbors steps. I grabbed a leash and headed out to investigate. This poor little baby came running over to me. He was filthy, flea collar, skinny, more than half his hair gone, and bald, bleeding paws. I put the leash on, headed in and bathed him. He was infested with giant fleas!!!!!! Joey ran and bought a flea comb, food, and various things.

*****I already had a giant crate setup in the garage because last week I found a little min-pin under a car around the corner. Luckily he was in great shape and his owner was already out looking for him. Owner checked out and picked this one up.******

I took him to the vet for frontline and he has an appointment today to exam.

Depending on the cats, (total of 3 now-Pia, Chooch, and Simon-newest) I think I'll be keeping him. trying to get a home for Simon but no one wants a cat.

I really can't understand people and how they just don't care for these animals. It's so sad.

Why do they keep coming to me? I can't even ignore them because they come to my door.

Will post a better picture later.

I know, that's what I can call him when he's being bad.

Thanks guys! All encouragement is welcomed.


Everything is going pretty smoothly. Went to the vet, they said he's around 2yo. He loves to be held and likes the cars. He nd pia can be out together. She really likes him. Chooch, on the other hand, is a major bully. He weighs almost 16lbs, they dog is only 13lb and pia is around 10lb. Chooch is gigantic and as big as the dog. He and pia till can't be out together because he runs after her and tackles her and bites. He isn't mean, but he loves to bite. He still bites me constantly but not too hard and I know he's only playing. He's just too big for her and she doesn't fight back.

The dog was in the crate last night and chooch sat on the step and reached his paws in and grabbed his neck, played with his ears and tail and the dog just wagged away. Bath day is tomorrow and joeys niece is coming over for a spa day.

I'll post some pics tomorrow.
