…and BABY MAKES 3!
January 27, 2013
Yesterday was the big day! I woke up on a friends sofa yesterday morning – it was about 5am – to be able to make an early morning flight to Chicago to pick up our baby boy. From Chicago we took a connecting flight to Milwaukee rented a car and drove 45 south to Wadsworth, IL. It was a bright andbeautiful day, and traffic was easy. He was born on a farm and had 5 brothers and sisters. We decided to add a sweet little boy Wire Fox Terrier to the clan and baby makes 3. Boomer our 13-year-old Wire is going strong and Ny!a the 2-year-old Border Terrier seems to have taken to him already. Oh and yes, I decided to get a dog on the same weekend I’m headed to NYC for the Gift Show – so my husband is in charge at home! Maybe I’m a little crazy but seriously, when is a good time to get a puppy? Anytime!? Never!? Let the poop patrol begin, the up at night trips outside, the training and the all-of-it I say. Were ready. I now understand the families ( I mean “real” kids ) that reach numbers like 4 or 5 or… it’s a bit addictive, like tattoos. lol, the takeaway: Kids and puppies are like Tattoos – JUST KIDDING. But puppies are a lot like kids, just saying.
Your guess is as good as mine which of these tiny beasts is our little guy. We got this picture a few weeks ago… It could be one, two or four. This particular type of Wire Fox Terrier is referred to as a Ginger. He will grow up to be white with red/tan markings. His father (see last image) is also a ginger – a Wire Fox Terrier lacking the black markings typically found on this breed is called a Ginger. Cute aren’t they? Here is proud Mama, watching over her babies from a comfy chair (not) in the breeders kitchen. Poor thing was probably lifted out of the kennel just to get a quick shot of the little ones. Did you know Snoopy of the “Peanuts” cartoon was originally drawn from and a Wire Fox Terrier, not a Beagle?! I swear it. When we lived in California we used the same veterinarian as Charles Shultz, so we got the 411 from the man himself!
