Here is a picture of my new dog. She wouldn't hold still long enough for me to get a really good shot, but I'll post another picture later. She figured out that food-bowl thing right away. I believe the lamb and rice dog food is better than what she was accustomed to in the pound.
She is a good passenger for a truck-ride and the first thing she did when I got her home was to go poop outside. I LIKE that feature in a dog.
She's busy sniffing out her new digs and seems really fascinated by Quinton's room (probably because there's spilled food all over the floor). She started to hop on the couch once and I said "NAWP!" She did a weird acrobatic move and landed back on the floor without ever touching the couch; then, she went to sit in her new doggie bed and appear contrite.
I believe that Quinton picked a good dog.
Sounds like Quinton picked a great dog. That lamb/rice dog food is the fav of my chow mix baby, and he has to be restrained from eating it to the point of obesity.
Have you thought yet that your doggie looks a bit like mine? HMMMMMM........
You can bite me now. Heehee.
Congrats on you n' Quentin finding such a great dog!
I don't think you'll be needing that .22 for this one. *grin*

Sugar, my dog can kick Ruby's ass.
I'd recommend mixing some of the food she was eating at the pound with the lamb and rice stuff for a week or two. Changing food on a dog, especially from crappy stuff to more nutritionally dense stuff can get you really bad case of doggie diarrhea.
Good Lord Man! Is that a (empty) case of Old Mil? You've got to draw the line somewhere usually I draw it at Natural Lite.
Congrats on the new pup. Also glad to know that you got her from the shelter. I'm an incurable hound pound-rescuer.
On the dog food front, I've found a nutrionally excellent food that comes at a significantly better price than the Eukanuba, Iams, etc., premium brands.
I feed my four basset hounds Diamond brand Premium Adult dog food. You can check out their website at http://www.diamondpet.com/
You'll probably need to go to your local farmer's supply or feed store to pick it up. Where a forty or fifty pound bag of Eukanuba is pushing 40 bucks, Diamond is in the $13-16 range. My dogs love it.
Again, congrats on the new pup. I enjoy your blog tremendously.
Congrat's on the new pup. She looks like a winner.
Good advice from Jay. Feed store dog food is much cheaper.
She's a cutie! She has two of my favorite features in a four legged family member. She poops OUTside, and she understands "NAWP". Can't beat that with a stick.
Acidman - Yes, Oddball may be able to kick Ruby's ass - only because she weighs 3x as much as cute little Rubies!
I am curious about how much Oddball weighs. Did the vet weigh him?
*really* like the Old Milwaukee case *on top of* the box of wine ... could this *possibly* be a recycle thing?
jeez what a cutie--however--my 22 lb maine coon cat challenges oddball to a duel-lol-mikey is one mean cat lately- my mom in law just moved in with us and he is one pissed off cat-lolol as am i-
I just want to know why Oddball reminds Quinton of Harry Potter.
What a great looking dog! Not sure where Quinton came up with the name Oddball, but she'll ease into it. They always do.
Have fun bonding. I love my two dogs...and they always are glad to see me and give me such unconditional love right back! Never met a person that could do that.
I you look closely at this picture, you can see the white half-moon on Oddball's shoulder. Quinton said that it reminded him of a Harry Potter lightning bolt scar.
Hell... that works for me.
Kid's got a good eye.
He can see below the surface - a rare ability and one more of us should strive for.
People who do not think far enough ahead inevitably have worries near at hand.
