Meet Pebbles

February 21st, 2012 at 05:43am

This was supposed to be yesterday’s second announcement.

Back in the middle of November (photos say November 13…I thought it was the day before that), there was an addition to my household. A little Jack Russell puppy who we named Pebbles.

Pebbles was only tiny at the time, and Nattie wasn’t quite sure about the idea of another dog moving in, but she seemed to tolerate Pebbles’ presence at first, and then slowly got used to the idea that the little dog was not “just visiting”.

Pebbles has grown quite a bit in the few months that she has been here, and when she isn’t running around with a toy or chewing on a bone, she enjoys a cuddle…or climbing on a person to lick their ears.

Over time, Nattie and Pebbles have become friends. It has taken some time and Nattie has made her authority clear more than a few times, but they quite like each other now…even if Pebbles is a bit more fond of Nattie than Nattie is of Pebbles.

Even though they get along, the difference in personality is stark. Nattie, at nearly 12 years of age, is more interested in relaxing than playing, while Pebbles is still a puppy with a seemingly endless supply of energy.

Here is a video of Pebbles playing on Friday night while I was listening to the AFL.

Patience is not Pebbles’ greatest strength. We had to wait quite a while when we went up to see the “good doctor” for her latest vaccinations, and she wasn’t in any way interested in sitting still.

If you’re wondering, the main reasons for getting a puppy were so that
A) Nattie would have a bit of doggy company in her senior years.
B) The puppy would grow up with another dog, hopefully reducing the anxiety of being separated from the rest of her family.

We took months to make the decision, and we could not be happier. Pebbles is a great addition to the family, and even Nattie seems a bit happier since Pebbles arrived.

Woof!
