Sparky Update!

From Sparky's foster to adopt mom!

Hiya! Everything is going fine, minus the fact he still thinks cats = chew toys. He's getting better about it, and the cats come down from 'up high' (tops of chairs, shelves etc) now. Sometimes they even play nice! His neuter appt. is January 14th at 8am. I forgot what having a puppy was like - the accidents, the 'oopies I ate the couch and your one shoe and part of the table', the barking at the wind... but honestly, 98% of the time, Sparky is a joy. Mark and I remember how Belle used to act when she was a puppy, and we laugh, now. So I figure we'll laugh in a couple years about what Sparky does, too! We keep his bed in our bedroom, and he's so sweet when its time to sleep. He sleeps for about half an hour, then sneaks into our bed to curl up with Belle. He does this adorable 'army crawl', using only his two front feet to crawl towards us, then licks our faces like "Heh, Sparkys in the beeeddd tooo!!" He's still a little awkward and lanky - he bumps his head a lot of tables, comes up short sometimes around the wall - but he is FAST! when he runs. I think his one back leg might be part spring, because boy, can he jump. Hes smart - he already knows sit, down, stay and roll over. He 'talks', too, but thats because he likes to, not because we taught him =)

Dear Anonymous:

Sparky is very cute! But my chubby little beagle already loves him, as do I (and my husband) - so, well I'd like to think he's friendly enough to get along with your female, he's already found a home =)

Oh my gosh...I just know that Sparky and my Sheba have GOT to be related somehow! She described my Sheba to a T! LOL

I love the 'oopies I ate the couch and your one shoe and part of the table', the barking at the wind...

Just this morning, when I thought it was "safe" to turn my back and talk on the phone, I just knew it was too good to be true. Sheba was soooo quiet in the living room. Yeah. Being quiet while she ate my foot stool! Lesson Learned! ;)

I just love my JRT and am so happy to have her. She might be a rescue, and an onery one at that, but she has the heart and soul of an angel!
