Welcome Baby Huey

Wednesday, 18 May 2016.

I think it was somewhere around April 19th that Matt and I randomly started chatting about the idea of another pup.  We talked about how it could be a beneficial thing for Koa (Matt’s 5 yr old OG Aussie Shepherd).

One of Koa’s last days as an only dog

Koa always wants to play with the kitties and they just don’t want to have anything to do with him.  We even talked about the possibility of getting a lab.  I have always wanted a lab but figured it wouldn’t be something that would happen for quite some time.

The next day, Matt happened to talk to his dad, and his dad asked if we might be interested in their year old lab, Huey.  Him and Matt’s mom haven’t had the time to dedicate to Huey since they both work full time and he’s a big dog that needs a lot of exercise and training.  So Matt mentioned it to me that day, would we be interested?  My first instinct was, yes absolutely!  But at the same time, my dad had just had back surgery and I was feeling a little overwhelmed wanting to know how his recovery was going to go.

We had to decide quickly though, because it’s busy season for Matt at work, and he was going to have to drive down to Texas to pick Huey up and we were down to the wire on when he was going to be able to take a week off.  So he left on Saturday morning, just a couple days after we talked about it and decided to give it a shot.

Buttering me up with pictures of this sweetheart – how can I deny that face?

Now I have to admit, between our conversation and the week while Matt was gone I started having some doubts about how realistic it was to bring another fur baby into our two bedroom townhouse with very limited outdoor space.  Matt was super patient with me and suggested we give it a shot and just see how it goes.  I so appreciated being able to be honest about my anxieties but feeling confident that if he thought it would be okay I would follow his lead.  Definitely gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling regarding our decision making skills in this relationship 🙂

It’s been about a month and I am SO happy we gave this a shot.  It hasn’t been without its growing pains, but of course that is to be expected.  Huey has settled in so well.  Other than a couple trips to the vet he’s done great.  He started itching almost as soon as he got here – we didn’t know if it was the change in climate or stress or an allergy, but a trip to the vet got that ironed out.  Then poor baby came down with the runs – another trip to the vet and some meds and he’s feeling so much better.  I hope now he can enjoy his life with us because we have certainly fallen head over heels for him.  Everywhere he goes he’s very loved {Ok, the kitties don’t love him yet… but they’ll come around}

Things I love about Huey: His sweet kisses with his gigantic tongue, his cuddles, his velvet ears, his paws that smell like popcorn, his soft fur, his teddybear expression.

Welcome to the family, Huey.  Momma and daddy love you very much.
