A Day With my Pup

Hi all, I don’t know if you remembered, but I recently became a mother of an a-dorable Jack Russell puppy. Puppys generally have to get vaccinated for Parvo, and other types of diseases before they can go for a walk. The vet told me I couldn’t take Koopa out until he has all his shots. Parvo lives on the ground for 7 weeks, so if my dog walks on the infected ground and licks his paws, he could get sick and die. 😦

Well, good news! After about 3 months of getting those nasty shots, the vet cleared him to go on a walk!


There’s my little man looking handsome finally smelling that sweet, sweet autumn air! The brown chihuahua is his older brother Beast. Do you guys see the side eye Beast is giving Koopa? Beast doesn’t think too kindly of him. Mainly because Koopa likes to jump on Beast excessively and bite his tail.

So, first I tossed him the ball, then the little fireball streaked out to find it, and he brings it back to me to toss again.  We chased each other across this vast field. Koopa is faster than me, even though I work out at the gym twice a week. I’m really impressed with his speed, stamina, and ability to jump really high. He practically snatched the tennis ball right out of my hands!

Well anyway, after a full day of romping around in the crisp autumn air, even the mightiest of warriors have to rest sometime. photo (3)

Here Koopa is, resting with his beloved Koala Bear I gave him when I first met him.

Happy Thursday!
