    Not Sure How This Happened ... ANOTHER New Foster IG!

    Wow, word gets around. A week after I got Gia, a woman shows up at my boarding kennel and says, "I heard you take these dogs.", and shoves a IG puppy at me. Ummmm .... sure, I guess I do, now.

    So ... without further ado .... meet Rocky! He is the poster child for the "No Puppy Mill/Pet Store Puppies!" campaign, with his buck teeth and crooked tail. Poor guy. He is also morbidly afraid of men, completely not house trained at seven months old, and was intact.

    He is driving all the other dogs, especially Gia, crazy with his total lack of manners and puppy goofiness. He tries to get her to play with him, and she looks at him like a supermodel might look at one of the dueling banjo players from "Deliverance". It's hilarious.

    He's so darn cute, though.

    I named him Blue for a reason, unfortunently he doesnt like smaller dogs. I couldnt trust him around an IG.

    ETA: the second pic really makes me want to try anyway.

    He is georgeous!! This might be my next breed of dog......hopefully many years from now when my two are no longer with me.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Twisterdog, bless you for taking Rocky in. I hope that he will learn to potty quickly. Will you be responsible for having him neutered?

    Thanks,

    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    I wish I was in the position to have another dog right now. I'd have you send him up asap. He really has stolen my heart.

    Was done the morning after I got him.

    Yeah, they were supposed to be my next breed of dog, too ... in about eight years or so. Guess fate had other plans.
