Day 227: Happy Adoption Day

Today is Tybalt’s birthday!!!
Or his adoption day if you want to get technical. We don’t know when he was born or how old he was. (Guessing he is 3 years old now).

Remember when I first posted about my new puppy?
Seems like a while ago. His shelter photo looks nothing like him now. The eyes are similar but he doesn’t look so sad now.

You can’t really tell what his birthday present is in these pictures. It took him less than two hours to break down a big bone. I was shocked.

The only parts we didn’t let him eat were the slivers left over from him crunching. He was having trouble crunching them smaller and we were worries he would just try to straight swallow them.

Best two dollars spent. He might get another one around Christmas and he will be getting more homemade biscuit treats soon. Promise, lil buddy!!

He no longer has accidents in the floor (thank goodness!). He sits before getting his leash and going outdoors. Most of his manners are pretty bad but he does know Off really well and I never thought that would sink in. He lets me rake embarrassing pictures of him.

He loves to eat (good and bad) anything and everything. He snores, just like his parents. He gets super excited over his stingray toy and any marinated chews. His favorite spot to sleep in bed is between me and Kit or in a nest bordered by our legs (if you have dogs you know what I mean). He dances with me– even if he doesn’t like the song.

Happy birthday to my beagle baby boy!!!!

Day One Hundred Five: Supa’ Slim

sweet puppy eyes

This is Slim. He is a two year old neutered beagle at the shelter in my area. Okay, that is not entirely true. He WAS at the humane society in my area. I adopted him six days ago and he’s slowly settling in.

He was a stray and was therefore underweight and didn’t know any name. His shelter name was Slim because he was so skinny. In six days he is quickly changing. He is much more confident and cheerful around people. His coat is shiny and he is slowly packing on some more weight.

Being a young beagle he is full of energy constantly. He is very mouthy and reminds me of a baby the way he must test everything in his mouth.

His new name is Tybalt (Tib-Alt).

I hope he likes his new home as much as we love him.

Look how at home he is on his first night at home
