Fraggle's getting a friend!

Postby EllaBella » Wed Jun 17, 2015 11:18 am

Introducing Kirby! (Name might be changed, but my 5yo is deciding it so it might be something worse).

He's a 4 year old rescue maltipoo-ish currently being fostered by a family friend in CA. So my sister is picking him up there this weekend, bringing him back to Montana, then my mom will fly him out here when she comes to visit on July 8th. I'm so excited!!! He's my birthday present to myself. He acts just like Fraggle, but with a greater love of small children, so the two of them should be very very happy as companions.

Mitzi says she approves! Kirby looks quite a bit like her (except for the apricot nose and ears), so I wonder if there's some bichon frise in there? Mitzi's all bichon. Here's hoping Fraggle and Kirby become bestest buddies. Congrats (and thanks for choosing rescue).

His foster mom also said he was "quick to learn" so that's another difference from Fraggle. He was found matted and roaming the streets in the same neighborhood Fraggle was found roaming trying to break into a school yard 7 years ago. (And neither were claimed when found flyers were put up--per usual for this neighborhood, and both had obvious months/years of neglect).

I appatently collect blonde CA rescue dogs and bring them to the east coast. This will be my 3rd.

I figure when Kirby and Fraggle snuggle together, it won't even look like we have 2 dogs. I told my husband he won't even notice. Lol.

He's made it to my family's house in Montana. Gets along with all the dogs, (save the great Pyrenees who views all animals as threats and is not to be gotten along with), very friendly but not spastic.

Also, in my "He is Fraggle's BFF destiny" thinking, he can get to his neuter wound with his cone on (like Fraggle with her leg wound) and he can squeeze through small spaces even with a cone on (so another hamster skilled dog). So they apparently even have the same flaws from an owner perspective. Lol

So fluffy. He also might be more like 1-2yo, based on my mom's guess, not 4. His teeth are all pearly white except for 1 canine next to a retained baby tooth. Only 2 weeks left!!!! I'm so excited. My mom is sending videos of him playing with cat toys and my son is so excited for "his" dog to come.

I'm really hoping Fraggle is all healed up by the time he gets here. Ugh. Snakes.

They are on their way!!! My mom texted that he loves the airport and has been enjoying being loved on by a bunch of strangers and especially kids.
