Welcome to the family, Susan

Who is Susan?

This gal!

We picked her up last night from a really nice foster family and even though we are technically on a trial run, we LOVE HER. She is here to stay (hopefully, barring any crazy incidents this weekend that cause us to take her back).

She is a miniature pinscher/chihuahua mix, about a year and a half old, and she was almost put down in Modesto, CA before the awesome foster family saved her a month ago. She is so sweet and playful and hilarious and stinking cute. And best of all–totally quiet! She hasn’t barked once, but did whine when I left her in her kennel this morning. She slept in her kennel last night beside our bed and didn’t have any problems, so…fingers crossed…we might have lucked out on the best rescue dog ever. But it’s still a bit early to call it. She’s stubborn, needs to learn her name, and will need a friend down the road but for now we are having a great time.

Would your rescue dog give Susan a run for her money?

Any tips for first time dog owners?

    […] while brushing my teeth. Now I just need to remember to do that while washing dishes, preparing Susan’s food, waiting for lunch to heat up, etc. Fun […]

    OMG! What a cutie!!! =D She is adorable! Thank goodness she was rescued! For first time dog owners, I recommend trying not to spoil her (too much). Small dogs are easily spoiled but can become aggressive. No human food or feeding from the table. =)

      Good advice Cassy! We are definitely on board with the feeding rules, but are probably spoiling her with belly rubs and cuddles!
