After the heartbreaking loss of Argos the Greyhound, we decided to adopt another dog. It seemed kind of quick, but we had a huge hole in our hearts and this little dog needed a home.
I introduced her in the last post, mentioning that we found this sweet dog on RescueMe.org. She is 3 years old, spayed, and up-to-date on all of her vaccinations. She needed a nail trim, but that was it. Her main ‘issue’ is that, typical for the breed, she can be a bit bossy.
Since Purl is not a leader dog, this arrangement works out fine. Purl loves the canine companionship, Avie loves being in charge.
She is fearless. And so, so funny! Everything is an adventure. She can’t wait to get there, wherever ‘there’ is. She is always moving.
Except if she thinks Purl is on to something. Then she stuffs herself in the middle of whatever Purl is up to.
Purl isn’t a complete pushover. She is very easy to get along with until asked to share her spot on the couch. She let Avie know that is her spot. And Avie respected that, so it has been a great match.
The cats on the other hand, have had a bit of a power struggle with a dog that is shorter than they are. And a dog who doesn’t whimper and run the other direction like the Greyhounds. Barnie and Quincy have devised a new Invsi-cat shield to handle Avie.
