He certainly has the attitude. He does this thing when I'm on the couch. He jumps up, walks over to me, places one paw on my chest, then just stands there looking over me, avoiding eye contact. This usually gets him a "You don't own me" and a one-way trip off the couch until he decides to drop the 'tude.Thanas wrote:King sure has grown up to resemble rococo portraits of monarchs with the ears etc.
Jake's the only one we've kept.. so far, but I've found and manhandled 2-3 other dogs off the road or my yard over the years. It was funny. After the wife posted on some sites about latest dog, some lady posted "I'm glad you stopped. We saw him earlier and were worried." Oh yea? Good. for. fucking. you. Maybe take a second out of your day and fucking do something about it. And the neighborhood we were leaving: I make good money and I really couldn't afford to live there. I'm not saying they should all dive in and adopt 50 dogs, but it's not like taking some time to drop a puppy off at a shelter is going to break your bank.Raesene wrote:Have you considered opening an anamal shelter of your own ?
More seriously, all hats off to you - that's dog #3 or #4 (?) that you rescue.
Anyways, King really isn't a rescue. Sure, he was living with 10 or so other dogs at my friend's Aunt's, so there wasn't a lot of solo time for him, but King Charles with papers are stupidly expensive and even cocker mixes like King can go for upwards of $500. People around here (at least from what I've read) tend to like them because they're a bit stockier, but still have the same great temperament as a King Charles and lack the health problems Cockers have.
His name is Harley. And Jake's seizure meds weren't cutting it because he had 2 in the span of 2 weeks. He's on pheno-barbitol now. So, we got a stoner dog. Otherwise, he's in pretty good shape. Thanks for asking.Your latest acquisition really is cute, I can understand your wife, I wouldn't want to give him up either.
BTW, what'shis name ? And how is Jake ?
