Arrival Story: Chilex (Alex and Chino) doggy-logical clock had been ticking for quite some time. Since, they have a roommmate that is allergic to most dogs, they had kept postponing going to the shelter and rescuing a a pup. There were several close calls, when they both were going to just bite the bullet and become guardians to a puppy, however, it never fell through. The most closely was X-mas, when Alex gave Chino an IOU card, that once the time was right, to the shelter we would go. (The time being march/april when our rommate would move in with her love).
On January 11th, Chino went in to work. He saw his coworker embracing a beaufitul puppy, shy, and super cuddle. With excitement he asked her "Whose puppy is that"? To which she replied "Yours"! She was caring for this young pup, and was going to adopt it, but realized she had taken on too much. Chino in excitement Ichatted Alex. Alex just waking up from a slumber answered the call, and via video conference saw the puppy whom would become Behati, Chino asked if he could bring her home. Alex, still half dazed from his sleep, just said, sure!
Alex fell back in his sleep. Then he was awoken 15 minutes later, by the face of behati, licking him. Inevitable, she instantly become part of our home at the moment. She seemed a bit shy and reserved, she was 6 weeks, and I felt she was too young, to be removed from her madame and littlermates, however the circumstances would not allow her to be returned, so she would either be sent to a shelter or pass as her mother was rejecting them. There was an urgency to rehome all her littermates.
Behati was so adorable, but still very low energy and sad. I gave her puppy infant formula through a bottle, but the previous owner had informed us, they had her eating puppy food mix with wet food. So i continued her on that.
I then, inquired about the other puppies. Seeing Behati a bit sad, and so young to be seperated, I thought, mabye we can take in another littermate, to help them. So I phone the owner, and she said she had 4 more puppies left, I drove to her house and instantly was magnatized by the white little angel, whom would be known as Kalilah.
We picked her up, Behati came for the ride, the moment I brough Kalilah in the car, Behati just layed her head top of her, and they fell into a sweet slumber, that only babies and puppies experience. I felt as if, this was the right choice.
Once arrive home, Behati spirit was lifted. Her sister now was shy and reserved. Behati though, seemed to tell her "Don't worry, cheer up, we got a great home and we'll be together". After her nap, Kalilah woke up, with her puppy energy no longer scared, and telling Behati "You are right, we are going to be Ok". Their first night, they slept through, keep each other comfortable.
Bio: The girls are mix, with Poodle, and a lot of other stuff, maltese, shitzu, lasha aspo. At six weeks they weighed Behati 3lbs and Kalilah 2lbs. Behatic is with with patches of gray/brown around her eyes and on her body. Kalilah is white with some small beige on ears. They are both soft hair, the kind Cruela Devil would skin to make coats, because cause it is that soft.
So for awhile daddy has been trying to figure out what type of breed we are. Obviously, most doggy parents know, before they adopt but others, end up with a mix breed. That is our case, our Mama is a Poodle, but who was our daddy? We never got a clear answer. But after much research and comparison, daddy feels we might be Cuban girls, Havenese...or more importantly...Havapoos.
We are both sisters, but we dont look alike. We are big balls of fluff, just waddling our way. When we get our baths, we are tiny.
Life is food at 3 months old. We got our second round of shots, can't wait to get our final set so we can go meet more puppy pals.
So I wanted to share something scary but real. Puppy kidnapping. We are lucky enough to have a nice big fenced back yard, but we love to explore. so we found a way to get to the front yard. Luckily daddy figures this out m has blocked our escape. Our front neighbor told us to be very cautious in ensuring we don't get out of the back yard. He is a very vigilant man and has observed cara that drive around and pick up puppies up the street. Usually based on the type of dog they determine its fate. They use some to train pit bulls for fighting and others they breed to make more pitbull fighting tools. How scary,
We are going to keep an eye out and hopefully these tainted humans are caught we pray they have. Change of heart and stop this animal cruelty,
So we will be officially 3 months old this Friday. Time for our second set of booster shots. We are lot bigger than daddy expected us to be, since our mommy is a toy poodle.
Behati is weighing in at 8lbs and Kalilah is weighing in at 6 lbs. A lot of research on the internet suggest that we will be twice our 12 week old weight, which means, Behati will be a chunky monkey at 16lbs and Kalilah will be a pudgy pudge at 12lbs. Will we still be considered toy breeds? Regardless, our daddies love us, especially, cause we are just big fluffy balls.
Daddy is going to start making more of an effort to train us with commands, currently, Behati can Sit, but Kalilah, will only sit if her sister is not around to distract her. Oh Oh, litermatesyndrome??
We did take our first trip to the dog park, i know, a lot of y'all think, we shouldnt have cause we dont have our booster shots, but this park is super clean, it is fenced in, and the dogs that go visit it have very responsible parents, plus daddies made sure we did not eat any poop, they just wanted us to start socializing and coming around more dogs, since we spend most of our days with each other and humans.
What we found is that, we definitely need to start hanging around with more dogs! We were a bit scared of dogs, but also a bit curious but mostly scared! But, when we saw a human, we jumped for joy and followed them.
Overall, not a bad experience at the dog park, and Im sure with more visits, especially after we are fully vaccinated, we will learn to play with other dogs, instead of being scared of them.
Our potty is as good as can be, yes, there are accidents inside, but the weather where we live has been crazy, one day is freezing, the next its beautiful, then its wet and rainy, that it hinders our potty training. The good thing is, that we know, that the best place for us to potty is definitely outside!
Life is good!! We hate being left alone, but are learning to trust, that daddies always come back.
