New Puppy - Ozzie

Ever since our puppy (our 15-year-old puppy) passed away (see here), the other dog, Phoebe (a.k.a. Le Wee Devil, Beelzebub's Little Helper, She-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named...), has been a wreck. She's the Thunder-Jacket type of needy so my dad knew it was either get a new puppy playmate or resign himself to having groceries delivered for the next few years.

So we looked at some puppies...

And picked a gorgeous Australian Shepherd.

What's weird is that the plan actually worked...
"Can we be friends?"

Phoebe was stand-offish and has, for the most part, either ignored the puppy or seemed annoyed by it. But she's not shaking, she's not whining... Balance has somehow been restored.

We named him Ozzie (cuz it sounds like 'Aussie' and, as I said above, he's an Australian Shepherd)

For your viewing pleasure...
Here are his siblings

Here is him with Brutharrr

And here's his adorable whine-while-scratching performance.

  1. So sweet! Losing a pet is so hard for everyone in the family. Glad things are working out with the other pup.

  2. Adorable little Ozzie! And that picture of him and Pheobe is too freaking cute. Glad to hear that Ozzie is helping ease the pain in Pheobe's heart a little.
