Home with Beau
by beetree on 18 September 2012 - 13:10
|Riley says he likes the name Beau, and Beau seems to like his name. Looks like he's going to keep it. Mojo is doing just fine with Beau! I do have pix but I have to wait for him to fall asleep first so I can download to my computer, or I will hear the Call of the Wild, and it makes me think his daddy was part coyote or something! Three thirty this morning! I had to grab a pillow and lie down on the floor next to his crate, that was the only way he'd quiet down. My neighbor called this morning, she lives two houses away and said she heard him! LOL He hates to be alone! Hate, hate, hates it! Not too keen on the the crate, either. However, he just fell asleep under my chair by my feet!|
We need to keep a sharp eye on Mojo just because if things get too exciting he can do damage with his paws. My back is killing me from the travel, I need another four hours of sleep, too. He is a good puppy though, he went pee and poo outside! He wanted out to do it, too!
I'll give you all pix, real soon, but first I'm going to shower while he's conked out!!!

|Morning Bee, thanks for the update. Glad you made the trip safely. I liked the pics Steph puit up. Your son and that Beau are the cutest ever..............well he'll get the crate thing down eventually but I sure know the feeling of waiting for that to happen!!!! He is going to be a great looking boy............have a great day and try to get some rest. Hope your back feels better.................|

|I hope you put him in the crate while you showered. You may have a surprise waiting for you when you get out! Ziggy didn't care for his crate either but after awhile it became his safe place. We're letting him sleep outside of it and so far the only thing is the time he wakes up. He can make it all night but if Echo decides she needs out or it's time to eat, she brings him with her and normally I can say go back to bed and she will. Ziggy doesn't get it yet so I had to get up and put him in his crate at 3:30am this morning. Eventually he will understand that he is to leave me alone (and the rest of the house!!!) until he hears my alarm go off. Hopefully Beau will settle in and all will be calm. Great that he wanted out to potty. Ziggy got that real quick but his little bladder didn't always make it there the first couple of weeks. No worries now. Whew! Enjoy that pup and try to get some rest. LOL|

We need a Beau update, please. LOL
I'll bet you took a much needed nap.

|Thanks everyone for your patience! I needed that nap so bad, and I still don't have much time to give you all the picts, and all the stories, but here are some for starters:|
Mojo meets Beau for the first time.
Big Bro, Alex meets Beau, too.
Beau, after his bath, he was a bit stinky!
My calm doggy castle has been upheaved. I know now, why people with two dogs, might want two crates! Mojo did an impressive steeplechase leap that cleared our barricade when we attempted to take the pup outside without him.
Someone asked me in PM how the airlines were, and I must say I had no problems at all! They all just wanted to see him, I opened the bag for one of the Missoula pilots, I think, by his uniform, LOL A lady in Denver I swear, purposely sat next to us, because of the puppy! She let him chew her bag handle, lol, and showed me a picture of her black Cocker Spaniel, that interestingly enough, was named, Beau Soleil.
I will be giving you more pictures and stories, but I hope this will satisfy the curious for now! Thanks for all your comments and good thoughts, experiences and advice, I really have appreciated all of it, through all of this, even if I haven't named you all, yet!!!
Beau, sleeping in his bag on the airplane.
That's all the time I have for now, more to come... :)

|Bee, how adorable! What a cutie! Get some rest now, & be sure to love up on Mojo, too! jackie harris|

|Glad you made it back! He looks like he really squeezed into that luggage bag, sheesh! Another few days and he would have needed his own seat on the plane.|
by Ninja181 on 19 September 2012 - 13:30
|Thanks for the update Bee. Beau must have a great disposition to stay in that bag without causing a big fuss. LOL|
Looks like Mojo likes him.
Has he met that killer cat yet?
I'll bet you still can't believe you pulled off the entire expedition without a major hitch.
by beetree on 19 September 2012 - 13:56
|A new day, LOL! He did much better last night... and so did I! He chowed down his raw breakfast, my DH has bought assorted chicken parts and has suddenly taken to talking to butchers. Except I can't get him to buy hamburger... arghhhh! He drives me nuts sometimes; he bought beef stir fry strips! I'll have to go out later and buy it myself. |
DebiSue... I meant to tell you yesterday, you nailed it about me finding "presents" waiting for me because I let him sleep outside the crate while I took my shower! lol
Ninja, he has an awesome disposition and it is true, I couldn't have asked for a better match for Riley, it is amazing how that worked out. And the bag really wasn't as bad as he is making it look! He just was happy scrunched up at one end with his head popping out. I kept the tray table up and directed the air onto him. He liked that. And then when I got my soda, I fed him a few ice cubes, and he liked that, too. All the passengers were impressed with his great attitude, too! LOL There was actually an adult standard poodle in first class, that walked on... I figured he was a service dog of some sort?
And no, he has not met the cat, and probably won't for a real long time. The cat only uses the second story window for egress, so he's pretty safe from puppy.
And yes, our travel plans went really well. We even managed to hitch a ride on one of the electric carts when we landed into Denver on the way home. I saw two elderly ladies get on, and I looked the driver in the eye, and engaged him in my most pleading look, with my son and burdened arms, and said, can we get on, too? Our gate is B16. (Which was about 90 gates away from where we landed!) He said, OK, and we did. We let Beau's head pop out on the ride, and it was fun seeing all the people look and smile at him as we rode on by! I wish I had a few bucks handy to tip the driver, but it was just too darn much for me to deal with finding money at that time. I do regret that!
Okay, here are some more pictures:
View from the cabin with broken winged goose.
Riley and another boy meet their puppies for the first time.
Beau is a gusty eater, make no mistake! And yes, he got snipped... by accident. I can't blame Steph, we counted with Riley and including puppies, there were 23 dogs at her place. I can see how it happened. I was going to wait some... but too late now, LOL And Steph... I think we forgot to chip him, or just ran out of time... no worries, I'll have him done here. I had to help Steph by holding the other little boy's pup's head so she could chip him. The new owners kept letting her squiggle and Steph said she also had some tough skin, so it took a try, one too many than ideal. But the pup was just fine and forgot her ordeal quicker than I did!
Covered in puppies and lovin' it.
Riley with horses. This is a view from Steph's front yard. Riley is standing next to her palomino gelding, and to the left is the beautiful mare who was a bit frustrated because Steve was busy wrangling up her 4 month old red colt, I think his name is Copper (?) I 'm sorry I don't have a picture of him but he sure gave Steve a run for his money! Finally got the halter on him, and we did get to pet his soft nose. Notice how you absolutely can not see any mountains at this time, and believe me they are there... somewhere hidden by the forest fire smoke.
That's all I have time for at the moment... to be continued. :)

|What a fabulous adventure this has been. When I got my pups it was nowhere near this exciting LOL (they were, but not the places I went to get them :) Love the look on Mojo's face when he sees Beau! Gorgeous, just gorgeous. Oh you have some fun to come. Blessed are those households with 2 dogs :)|

|The pile of puppies picture is great! What are the names of the two horses above? I especially love the palomino.|
