A New Family Member

Most of the time hubby and I have had two dogs.

There is a specific reason for this besides the obvious social advantage for the dogs together. We make sure they are not the same age, a strategic move for us, so that when the oldest dog leaves us, we have the other dog to comfort ourselves with after the loss of the older dog. It has been a good plan for us.

We have had only our precious Millie since she came to us as a puppy. Well it is time to introduce all of you fine followers to Fred.

Fred The Pupster Vaughn

He is a mix of Great Pyrenees and Anatolian Mountain Dog with some hound. He is learning well to be here with us; you know all that puppy training stuff.

Just  like we have done in the past he is being crate trained and he is adapting very well. This in the crate pic was taken after a couple of hours of running around the yard with Millie.

They are six years apart in age so we are confident in the knowledge that when it is Millie’s time to go 😢 we, Fred, hubby and I will be good comfort for each other.

They are already fun friends and Millie is a stellar big sister to him. He is learning about crates, doing potty outside, and returning the

neighborhood barks, although the first time he heard her big bad German Shepherd bark it freaked him out 🤣.

But after a time he settled down.

So, that is the introduction to our new baby. Oh…the cat is pissed😆!

Cheers!
