Hey, more than a month with no blog entries. Clearly I'm not much of a blogger.
One thing that's been occupying us for the past couple of weeks is our new puppy. We recently adopted a rescue puppy who was born in Attawapiskat (reference). Her new name is "Keiko" and we found her via PetFinder.com. She was rescued by and adopted from Moosonee Puppy Rescue and she's a very attractive, smart and well behaved puppy. Here's Keiko at about 7-8 weeks of age:
We encourage anyone looking for a new pet to consider rescuing an animal instead of purchasing from a breeder. There are not enough homes for the pets that are already amongst us and so breeding simply makes the problem worse instead of helping.
So, we've been going through the trials and tribulations of puppy training. Luckily Keiko is a fast learner and we're looking forward to a long and rewarding relationship with her.
Even as I type this she's causing some trouble trying to jump on the couch and challenge me into some play time. Time to take her for a walk.
