I seem to be posting dog updates randomly from wandering.shop and toot.cat. Bennett is not a cat, but he's the same size as one?
Anyway, he slept well, is insisting on being on my lap while I work, but putting paws on the keyboard, which does not work for me. He did do a pee on the floor, but I should have taken him out again after breakfast. He also learned to go down the stairs.
New doggo is pretty smart, but has not been taught basic commands such as 'sit'. I did get him to use the stairs up to the bed (which is too high for him to jump on.) He seems perplexed by going down the staircase, so I have been carrying him (he can go up the stairs, and has no problem with the 3 steps up to the kitchen door, so I guess he has not been exposed to in-house stairs.)
He is here, he's a 2 yr old smol Border Terrier mix (?), totally into laps and petting. Ignoring the cats except for their food (I will need to schedule feedings.) I've never had a male dog, or such a tiny dog, but he seems happy to hang out on my lap while I type. Photos soon. I am pretty tired, long day. His name is Bennett, not sure if that will stick for me. Ack, he sneezed on my keyboard, DOGS.
Parental conflict can do lasting damage to kids (esp. shy ones)
I am trying not to get too excited about the pup photos, b/c sometimes due to the application process, someone else beats you to the dog you picked out, and it's super-disappointing, and I am trying not to get attached before I even meet them. This one is a small 5 month old cutie who will end up being smaller than Sophie the cat.
After yesterday's discussion with @woozle about my feelings for pets, I just put in an adoption application for a dog. I really miss the doggie luuurrrve. I know I was thinking about kittens instead, but aaaaahhhhhh
