    Well you know how we all have been wanting and wanting a second dog but the hubs has been uh, reluctant?

    Monday my two oldest kids and I went over to the spca (we often do that to bring donations over and to look at the cats/dogs). Anyway this little guy was being dropped off, owners moving and couldn't take him. He hadn't even been dropped off, the owner was filling out the forms and we . . well, we kinda took him home. :eek:

    Hubs was not overly thrilled (didn't help that he had a really bad day at work). There were some issues and we weren't sure if he was going to stay or not (lol, the dog). Stupid asses we were in not getting the phone number of the owner but the spca humane officer is a super terrific guy (I've had interactions with him before) and contacted the dog's vet and the vet called the owner and I'm giving her a call later today for more info. We have the info that was filled out on the form but had he actually been dropped off they would have gotten more info/asked more questions.

    The owner said he's 10 months old and a border collie/pom mix; the humane officer seemed to think he was more like 2 and not border collie because there isn't a white tip on his tail. ??? He looks like he has bc in him but hey, what do I know? lol I'll know more after I contact the owner.

    Penny -- surprisingly -- is ok with him! For a dog that doesn't like other dogs she was so not bothered much by him. She was really 'off' on Monday but after we came home yesterday afternoon she was herself. Hardly any growling from either dog, no aggression. I just heard the new dog loudly yip . . I think Shadow just put him in his place. lol The cat still rules, eh?

    Hubs was so much more accepting yesterday when he got home . . he smiled and was like 'he's still here?'. Makes live easier if everyone is on board.

    His name was Bailey, which is a good name, but a) it's a bit too schmancy name for a boy dog and b) too similar sounding to Penny. Hubs got free reign to rename him. New name is Diogi (d-o-g), Dio for short.

    He's little . . . maybe 25 lbs or so? He still needs to be neutered, vet checked and seriously needs a bath -- that's later today -- but after some bumpy stuff Monday/Monday night . . so far, so good.

    He didn't respond to his name . . at all. We renamed Penny (her name was originally Kensey) and she seemed ok with it. Thanks for the advice though! :)

    Back in the 70s had a Dog I named DeeOGee, too.

    Of course the abbreviation of that name (Deo) means GOD in Latin.

    If you are going to change his name, why not call him "Little Black Dog"? It has a bit of class!:lol:

    BTW, I'd give you some new doggie rep but I get the message... "Too much rep handed out, etc., etc., etc...

    Beautiful pound find.


    I bet there is BC in that little guy.


    He will learn a new name really easily.


    He looks like a pound dog I got years ago.

    That dog was the most wonderful ( wicked smart) animal I have ever had.

    She was about 58lbs in her adult years.

    The vet will be able to tell more about Dios age.


    You can make jokes about AWWWWW Dios
