My name is Sparkplug Ulysses Gilhooly, but most folks around here just call me Sparky. My new mom Virginia found me in the same shelter as Ripley, and was going to foster me for the Humane Society, but I convinced her to just keep me, instead! (Ripley said the sad puppy look would work, and he was right!)
I'm still at the vet's office being checked out, but so far I'm pretty healthy. I have a slight case of ehrlichiosis (er-licky-what??) which is related to Lyme disease, so I'm bonding with my new mom already. She says now I have to drink Irish whiskey, so I can bond with my new dad. I think she's kidding.
I've never really had a home before, so I'm a bit confused on my heritage and age. (I was a stray, and a nice lady adopted me from the shelter. However, I got out of her yard to go check out some interesting smells, and she took me back to the shelter the next day! I would have gone back in the yard eventually. I didn't know I was supposed to stay in there.) I think I'm a mutt, like Ripley. I'm about three years old, maybe more. It's so confusing!
Ripley said that when I joined the family, we wouldn't be a family anymore, we'd be a ranch (hahaha!)
I hope to meet y'all soon.
