Well, there’s a puppy in the house. He was a decision made during the summer and wasn’t technically arriving until after the cruise, but the long story short is that life changes and so he arrived last night.
Due to BH’s and middle BD’s allergies, he is another schnoodle (they are hypoallergenic and don’t cause the previous two to sneeze and wheeze) and of course, he’s as cute as a button.
We’ve named him Remy. His middle name is Tumu, which means “deer thinking about eating wild onions.” We all thought having a name with such a literal translation was hilarious (it was late–we were giddy–we were tired–we’re freaks…what can I say? 😉 )
The big dog, Rio, is angry and would have nothing to do with him at first, but is now showing some signs of coming around. Definitely, there is indifference in his attitude, but it’s an “out of the corner of his eye” indifference and there is the occasional tail wag on his part, so I know things will work out.
In the meantime though, Rio is getting more love than ever as we go out of our way to make sure he’s not ignored what with Remy, the fluffball, being so adorable.
So…interrupted sleep, busy days (he pees ALOT!), high squeaky voices as we “puppy talk” and general mayhem–such is our life at the moment. It’s all good though…there’s a puppy in the house!
