Meet Wesley

Well, the thing that kept me away from blogging much of last week was the new addition to our family, Wesley! We kept with our tradition of naming our pets after influental theologians. Lewis was named after C.S. Lewis; Martin (who we had for a short while) was named after Martin Luther; Wesley is named after Charles and/or John Wesley, you can pick. And really, he just looks like a Wesley!

He’s adorable and sweet as puppies usually are, and totally exhausting. He’s had a nasty case of separation anxiety and between me getting no sleep for a few days and being occupied with housebreaking, I’ve had barely any time to be on the computer at all.

Some of our friends were shocked (as were we) that we’d gotten another dog so soon after Lewis passed. Believe me, it wasn’t planned. To us, Lewis was THE dog, he will never be surpassed in our hearts. We had a connection with him that we’ll never have with another dog.

In most ways, Wesley is totally opposite of Lewis. His personality is pure fun (not soulful, like Lewis was)…he’s afraid of nothing, a total clown and we can take him everywhwere. We fell in love with his temperament and decided he was exactly what we needed in a dog. While we enjoyed the connection we had with Lewis, there was so many fun “doggie” things we couldn’t do with him. So it’s a joy to have a pup that can do all those things.

And it will be even more of a joy when he stops whining in his kennel!

    Oh, I love him! I thought that might be what you were hinting at! Congratulations on the new member of the family 🙂

    What a sweet face! No wonder you have him. Who could resist that little guy?
    I’m so glad you get to be home with him while in training.

    Glad you’re back, we missed you!

      I know, a couple of days after we brought him home (and had NO sleep), we were like…”what did this dog do to us!?” We were literally stunned that we had made this decision. But now that we’ve slept a little, we realize that he is really a great pup and I think he’ll bring a lot of joy to our family.

      Thankfully he’s part beagle, which supposedly is one of the smartest breeds. He actually is learning very quickly…the humorous thing about smart dogs is that they then figure out how NOT to obey you! I have to laugh sometimes (to myself, of course).

    Oh how sweet. I want to kiss his little wet nose and rub my cheek on his floppy little ears. Wesley stole my heart already. I hope he brings you much joy!

    Ohmigod! Look at that face! What a cutie pie! Do I detect some hound dawg there? Polly would be most pleased.

    What a cutie pie! Oh, I already said/wrote that, but I’ll bet you could hear it again.

      Yes, he’s all hound! A Beagle-Basset (aka, Bagle Hound). So far he looks mostly like a Basset, with Beagle coloring. And he seems to have the “best” of both breeds when it comes to temperament, at least so far. ” 🙂
