(That’s not his real name. But I figured he needed a good blog moniker too. And since he makes my heart happy – and Lucky’s, too, and Charlie’s too- Happy the dog it is. :))
He was not the biggest puppy, nor the most energetic. But he was super sweet; content to wag his tail and wait for Lucky to come into the dog pen at the breeder’s. Actually, he took to ALL of us right away. Having grown up with breeds that intensely bond with one person and then become Protector of Loved Person, it was odd to see him attach to all of us in different ways.
He loved chasing Lucky around the yard yesterday afternoon. When we first went inside the house, Happy was so tentative, and it was only Lucky playing in the living room that got him to explore the rest of the house.
As he explored, he’d come back and climb into my lap for a snuggle, which reminded me of when Lucky was a toddler and first exploring a new place – I acted like home base for him.
And he followed Charlie around the kitchen last night and laid down at his feet whenever Charlie sat down.
We’re kind of in love.
Because, seriously, how can you NOT love this face?
