Meet Pikachu, my new little puppy!

I have to start with the bad news first, and I hate posting anything negative on any blog, so I'll make it quick. I lost my dear Chihuahua, Precious, last month, due to a breathing condition pretty much brought about by old age. She died in my arms, and it about broke my heart. I loved that little dog.
 
I knew no other dog could replace her, but I began to look at rescue dogs, cause it somehow felt as if her death would be more meaningful if it brought about a loving home for another dog who really needed one. And so we found Pikachu, a Chihuahua mix, (and I keep guessing as to the other part. She has soft fluffy hair, so I'm thinking Pomeranian?) Anyway, she had a rough start, barely escaping euthanasia. Her rescue name was Fergie, and if you have the stomach for it, you can read about her journey here: http://www.homeanimalrescue.com/litter1.html#top

I found her on the following website, and it was such a thrill to see the words ADOPTED, and know that I was the one they referred to:

And now for the best part. PUPPY PICTURES!! Below are pictures of what our happy, energetic adorable mutt looks like now.
 





 
And not to forget my dear, old sweet Baggins, who was bewildered by the absence of Precious, the dog she grew up with, and horrified by the wiggling, biting, (I'm working on it, it's play-biting, but Pikachu has sharp little teeth) rambunctious critter we brought home. Here she is, looking at Pikachu (you read the expression in her eyes):


I'm happy to say that last night, the two dogs actually played together. I think Baggins will be much happier in the long run with another dog in the house. She just doesn't know it yet.

My Magical Best,
Kathryne

  1. As long as Baggins doesn't start calling the puppy Gollum, you're home free, lol. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your fur-baby and my congratulations on the rescue of a new bundle of energy. I will look forward to reading progress reports!

  2. Very cute! So sad they don't live as long as humans do.

  3. #1 Daughter did some dog-sitting about a month after she lost her beloved little dog. Her big dog was delirious over having a little friend again. As it turned out, the folks who asked her to take care of the little dog were hoping she'd want to keep her and she did!

    It seems furry friends come into our lives just when we need them.

  4. I'm so sorry you lost Precious. It's never easy. But how wonderful about getting a rescue. Our second dog was a rescue and she was the best dog ever. Now I have my rescue cats but every once in a while we think about getting another rescue dog. May you have many years together.

  8. Hi Cheryl! I agree, dogs should have the same life span as humans...but then again, there are so many dogs out there who are being euthanized for lack of a home. I can have many wonderful dogs in my life.

  10. Thank you catslady. By your name, I figured that like my sister, you were a cat lover. In Arizona, the cat population is even worse than the dogs, so bless all you cat lovers.

  14. I’m sorry about Precious, but I like the way you name your pets. :)

    I really like mixed pom breeds, especially since they stay petite for the most part. I would definitely love to have a pomsky in the near future! Just have to find someone who breeds them.
