Interview with a New Brother

Mama and I have been trying to think of a way to tell you all about Jacob, and finally we thought that I could interview him! Maybe Star could feature the article in the  "Pretty Kitty and Buffy Puppy Magazine".

First a little background :

Mama and Daddy have been in cahoots to get me and Bilbo a sibling for like the past year. They were planning on getting a little puppy lhasa, but the timing never seemed right. Then Found Frankie Puppy changed everything...Mama and Daddy saw how much fun I was having with Frankie and how Bilbo didn't mind TOO much. So as soon as they found Frankie's family they knew that the best thing they could do was look at Petfinder and see if they could find a puppy that needed a furrever home. 
When they looked, they saw a cute little Lhasa/Shitzu mix that was only 4 months old and emailed the rescue place where he was staying right away. The rescue place sent out the home visit lady and Mama, Daddy, Bilbo and Me were all approved and we could go and meet this puppy on Saturday (last Saturday).

 This is Bodie...and he was almost my brother. He was friendly, outgoing, and we were VERY close to bringing him home.

  and then we met Buddy who is now Jacob. The rescue lady suggested we just take him for a walk. Daddy walked him over to the grass and the first thing he did was start giving Daddy kisses....it was all over from there.....Don't tell him, but Jacob is a pretty cool little brother. He is more relaxed than Bodie cause he is three years old and not a little puppy, he doesn't sniff me all the time and he does some great zoomies!! Mama says he is totally house broken (that means he doesn't "go" in the house like my OTHER brother).

But on to the interview!!!

Dory: First things first Jacob. Why Jacob???  Why not Spot or Freckles or maybe another dog name??
Jacob: Oh Dory...you know our humans...anything movie or TV. In this case I believe they think I have touched them and changed their lives just like my namesake Jacob on Lost.
Dory: Well at least you weren't name after a FISH
Bilbo: or a HOBBIT!!
Dory: This is my interview Bilbo...go eat your dinner!! So...Jacob, how did you end up staying with your friends at Mixed Breed Rescue??
Jacob; Well Dory, for some reason my last family said there was something wrong with my personality. Frankly, I think I was just too well behaved for them!
Dory: Jacob...how did you know how to win over Daddy's heart with the kisses and letting him rub your tummy??
Jacob: Like you Dory, I could just feel what Daddy needed. That is why I am here!
Dory: What about Mama??

**Dory and Jacob break out in doggy giggles**

Jacob: Do I really need to answer that??? She is like such a pushover!!!

Dory: I know...I don't know why I even asked...that was a good giggle tho!! What do you think of your new house??
Jacob: A big couch to sleep in, a real bed to snuggle with you, Mr. B and humans in and a BIG BACKYARD to chase sqirr....
Dory: JACOB...you do know it is MY Backyard RIGHT??
Jacob: Yeah but Mama says you have to share
Dory:Yeah but you are scaring all the.....
The Mama: I interrupt this interview because a time out was needed on both sides. I just want to say that having Jacob in our home is like he has always been here. He and Dory really get along and Bilbo is adjusting...slowly but surely.

  23. Wow! Congratulations! Don't tell Loki or Juno, but I've secretly always wanted a Lhasa or Shitzu myself. or some wee little doggie. they're just the sweetest things. Though, both Loki and Juno LOOOVE wee doggies. In fact, each of them has a best buddy at school that is a chi and another is a maltese!

    How smart of Jacob to kiss the daddy like that right away! Boy, he sure had his thinkin' cap on that day: "hmm... he looks like a fella that would be great to live with. I think i'll kiss him!"

    great interview!
    maybe one day we'll rescue a wee doggie to fit in here...

  24. Well it is so nice to meet you Jacob!! Congrats on the new addition!!! Maybe Dory can teach him a thing or two about squirell chasing and then they can take turns securing the backyard!

  25. Oh Jacob...it is SO very much nice to get to know you. You were so smart to gives your daddy kisses. Dads luvs kisses maybe even more than moms do. I'm also glad your mom and dad went for a more "mature" fellow.

    And Dory, you were a regular Oprah! You have some Most Impressive interviewing skills. Maybe you could see if you could get a gig on Animal Planet or something.

  48. Yay Dory!! and your momma and daddy for making Jacob feels right at home!

    Momma says its amazing how you find the most amazing pets in rescue shelters and groups.

    *high paws* and *nosetaps*


    Pee Ess - Momma's are total push overs huh MOL hehehe

  49. Excuuuuusse ME! Just what is wrong with being named after a Hobbit!?! Pippin

    We are so happy that you decided to take on another brother, Dory... especially one that you get along with pretty well. We hope he doesn't "lose" his housebreaking if Bilbo has a problem, but Grammy says if he was tutored early enough he might not have learned to "mark" his territory... er... YOUR territory. BG


We love to read your peemails!!
