We have a new addition to our household, her name is Pele.
She is a twelve week old Siberian Husky. Mom named her after thw Hawaiian Goddess of Fire and Volcanoes.
I think I told you in an earlier post tha Mom & Dad have been looking for a companion for me. I believe I also told you about the other Girls that I have met, and how they didn't work out. So here is the story of how we got Pele:
Mom ran an internet search for 'Siberian Husky + Philadelphia, Pa". She came across an ad for five female Siberian Huskies near Allentown, Pa. Mom called the number and the Lady said she only had 1 Girlie left. Mom told her that she would not be able to get there until next weekend. The Lady said she was not sure she would still be there, but that Mom could call her back next weekend and if the dog was still available we could come look at her.
When Mom got off the phone her and Dad talked about it, then rearranged their schedules so that we could go look at the pup. Mom called the Lady back, and asked if we could come up. The Lady said sure. Mom continued to talk to her and told her about our Magic, and how bad I was feeling and that the only way we could take the puppy was if I felt comfortable with her. The Lady said that she understood and would make sure that I could meet the little Girl all by myself and spend some time with her.
So, Mom & Dad packed us all into the truck and off we went to Lansford, Pa. in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.
When we got there the Lady was waiting for us with the puppy. She was so tiny. After the initial meeting we ignored each other for a little while, but then we started checking each other out. She didn't seem too bad, she was just a baby. I think I could deal with her. I sat down and this little Girlie sat down just between my front paws - it was one of those picture perfect moments, but... Mom Forgot Her Camera!!!
We decided that we would keep her. So it was back in the truck for the long ride home.
The ride home was uneventful. We slept most of the way, and stopped for potty breaks.
In the house we sort of ignored each other for awhile. Then we played for a while - she is a quick little bugger. She was running and jumping and jumping and running. I thought she was never gonna stop. I got tired of playing - where do these young dogs get all their energy!? Igot tired of playing and wanted to take a nap. Of course, Pele had other ideas. But I had had enough, so I batted her with my paw, but she came back for more, so I did it again and guess what? She actually left me alone! I was so surprised.
We played again a little later, and when we got tired we both laid down to snooze a little. I think this might work!
