New girl in the family
Say hello to “Peaches”. A 1 year old female Cairn Terrier / Mix that was picked up as a stray and brought to the Hinsdale Humane Society. She was on the ABC Channel 7 news “Doggie Days” adoption show on June 29th, 2012 with the name “Delilah. We had no idea that was the case, but showed up at the shelter on June 30th and picked her out of the line-up in the kennel. While we were there several other people came in to see her and mentioned the TV show. To late suckers…she’s ours.
She is a happy little thing that loves to play with balls and stuffed toys. During the “get to know the dog” session at the shelter I was able to easily lay her over on her back and rub her belly (shows she has no trust issues) and I could take her ball/toy away with a bit of playful growling but no bitting (shows no toy aggression issues). During vigerous play she even grabbed my hand twice, accidentally, but did not bite.
She should be a good ball of fire.
She’s currently at the vet getting a check-up, shots and a little nip and tuck (spay).
The girls have already set up the house with a bed in mom/dad’s room, a fluffy pillow area in the family room and she’s got a new food/water dish. Teagan has been asking, “when can we go pick her up?!” every hour for the past 12 hours.
Unfortunately, daddy (me) will be taking on crate training duties starting Monday since the girls are heading to their mom/nanna’s house for the holiday vacation. It will just be me and Peaches every evening after work for a few days.
