Mama and I have been trying to think of a way to tell you all about Jacob, and finally we thought that I could interview him! Maybe Star could feature the article in the "Pretty Kitty and Buffy Puppy Magazine".
First a little background :
Mama and Daddy have been in cahoots to get me and Bilbo a sibling for like the past year. They were planning on getting a little puppy lhasa, but the timing never seemed right. Then Found Frankie Puppy changed everything...Mama and Daddy saw how much fun I was having with Frankie and how Bilbo didn't mind TOO much. So as soon as they found Frankie's family they knew that the best thing they could do was look at Petfinder and see if they could find a puppy that needed a furrever home.
When they looked, they saw a cute little Lhasa/Shitzu mix that was only 4 months old and emailed the rescue place where he was staying right away. The rescue place sent out the home visit lady and Mama, Daddy, Bilbo and Me were all approved and we could go and meet this puppy on Saturday (last Saturday).
This is Bodie...and he was almost my brother. He was friendly, outgoing, and we were VERY close to bringing him home.
and then we met Buddy who is now Jacob. The rescue lady suggested we just take him for a walk. Daddy walked him over to the grass and the first thing he did was start giving Daddy kisses....it was all over from there.....Don't tell him, but Jacob is a pretty cool little brother. He is more relaxed than Bodie cause he is three years old and not a little puppy, he doesn't sniff me all the time and he does some great zoomies!! Mama says he is totally house broken (that means he doesn't "go" in the house like my OTHER brother).
But on to the interview!!!
Dory: First things first Jacob. Why Jacob??? Why not Spot or Freckles or maybe another dog name??
Jacob: Oh Dory...you know our humans...anything movie or TV. In this case I believe they think I have touched them and changed their lives just like my namesake Jacob on Lost.
Dory: Well at least you weren't name after a FISH
Bilbo: or a HOBBIT!!
Dory: This is my interview Bilbo...go eat your dinner!! So...Jacob, how did you end up staying with your friends at Mixed Breed Rescue??
Jacob; Well Dory, for some reason my last family said there was something wrong with my personality. Frankly, I think I was just too well behaved for them!
Dory: Jacob...how did you know how to win over Daddy's heart with the kisses and letting him rub your tummy??
Jacob: Like you Dory, I could just feel what Daddy needed. That is why I am here!
Dory: What about Mama??
**Dory and Jacob break out in doggy giggles**
Jacob: Do I really need to answer that??? She is like such a pushover!!!
Dory: I know...I don't know why I even asked...that was a good giggle tho!! What do you think of your new house??
Jacob: A big couch to sleep in, a real bed to snuggle with you, Mr. B and humans in and a BIG BACKYARD to chase sqirr....
Dory: JACOB...you do know it is MY Backyard RIGHT??
Jacob: Yeah but Mama says you have to share
Dory:Yeah but you are scaring all the.....
The Mama: I interrupt this interview because a time out was needed on both sides. I just want to say that having Jacob in our home is like he has always been here. He and Dory really get along and Bilbo is adjusting...slowly but surely.
