Yep, we decided that our family just wasn't big enough so we went and got a puppy! Well, to be honest...we've talked about another dog since Leyton was about 6 months old. While Whisky has been great with Leyton he has also be noticeably sad and lazy. Maybe a bit depressed by the attention that the baby gets. I didn't know if getting a second dog would help, but on a trip to Tahoe I saw how happy Whisky was with a dog friend in the house and I knew right then it would happen.
Then it just became...puppy or adult dog? I knew I would adopt from a shelter for sure. The more time went on the more I started leaning towards a puppy for fear that an older dog might bite Leyton and I would never know until it was too late.
When we got home from our vacation and I started looking and almost immediately found this cute little guy. He is 14 weeks old and a Heeler Hound mix.
We've named him Barley to stick with our beverage loving theme. Nothing makes you seem more like a drunk than a dog named Whisky and a dog named Barley! So far things are good and Whisky is SUPER happy to have a friend!
We are dealing with the normal puppy stuff, but also what a sweet sweet dog this little guy is. So loving!!!
I'm happy to have another baby in the house, even if it's of the furry variety!
