Tips on Welcoming a New Dog Into the Family

dogThey’re sweet, loving, and absolutely irresistible. Whether you’re meeting dogs at your local animal shelter or through a reputable breeder, it’s hard not to fall in love with more than one puppy or dog. Sometimes a dog may even find you: Animal lover Michael J. Knapp, for example, says a stray dog worked her way into his family home and heart.

Bringing home a new furry family member is a sweet and joyful experience. However, that experience can quickly turn a little sour if the dog chews up your things, messes up your carpet, keeps you up all night or just flat-out refuses to obey you. Even the most kind-hearted and loving of pet owners may wonder if they’ve made a serious mistake.

If welcoming a new dog into your family isn’t going the way you expected, don’t despair. In most cases, these problems can be solved. Here are some dog facts in mind:

Dogs often seem to pull bait-and-switches: She was so shy in the crate, and so sweet on the first day. Then on the second day, she starts getting into everything and tearing up the house. What happened? It’s pretty simple, really: Your dog’s sudden “personality change” means she’s become comfortable with you, and sees your home as a safe and welcoming place where she’s free to be herself. Just like people, dogs have complex personalities and their fair share of quirks. She’s still a sweet puppy; she’s just showing you more of her spunky side.

Puppies are very much like toddlers: If you’ve adopted a http://www.brunomars.com/moonshinejungletour, you’ve likely discovered that they are curious, sassy, mischievous and determined to have things their way. They teethe, test their limits and have trouble with toilet training. Dealing with a puppy is very much like dealing with a very young human. Dogs, too, will grow out of this stage so long as you provide proper puppy training.

Dogs need care and companionship:

Dogs require a lot of care, attention and guidance. You need to spend a lot of time teaching your pooch where to potty, what to chew on, how to play nice and how to have good puppy manners. Even the sweetest, most naturally well behaved of dogs will need some guidance.

The better trained your dog, the less frustration he will give you, the more well liked he will be and the more you will enjoy his company. But even the most well-trained dogs still have some personality. There are no promises that you won’t catch them napping luxuriously in your off-limits bed when you come home early. But that’s part of their charm.

Dogs are loyal: You would be hard pressed to find a more loyal, grateful or loving pet than a dog. Give them the training and help they need when they’re young, and you’ll earn yourself a wonderful companion. Michael J. Knapp knows this well: The stray dog who wandered into the family yard one day is now a cherished family member and a wonderful pet.

Eto ang tulugan ni Sang sa gabi.

puppy Sang

Twice ko lang sya tinuruan para pumwesto dito. Napaka-masunurin ng little bitch namin na to kasi pag matutulog na kami, nagkukusa na sya sumampa sa kama nya. Kama nya na kelangan na yata palitan agad dahil baka magmistula syang may osteoporosis sa paglaki nya. 

Kelangan palitan ng mas malaki ang higaan nya nang makapag-stretch naman ang mga legs nya. Hays..kelangan ko na yata maghanap. Kasehodang ipagpangutang ko pa o kaya hulog-hulugan ko ang pagbayad sa furniture shop basta magkaroon lang ng bagong kama ang beybi namin. Chos! 😛

  puppy Sang

Nang dumating sa amin dito si Sang, dala-dala nya ang small stuffed toy na yan sa tabi nya. Peborit nya yan sabi nong dating owner na pinanggalingan ni Sang. Medyo maputi pa ang tsura ng toy nya noong dumating sya dito. Sa kakangatngat at kangungudngod nya sa sahig, ngayon ay naging gusgusin na ang tsura ng teddy bear nya.

Pagmamahal Na Walang Kundisyon

Kremo and I

Kremo and I

(Lumang kodak namin ng alaga ko. Year 2009.)

Gusto ko na ulit mag-alaga ng puppy. Nami-miss ko na ang kagaya ng Kremo ko, a japanese spitz. Shaks! Hindi ko akalain na mangungulila ako ng husto sa dati kong alaga noon. Ewan ko ba, meron talaga silang kakaibang klase ng pagmamahal na ibinibigay na hinding-hindi ko naramdaman sa mga kapwa kong demi-god. Charing!

Sa buhay natin, there are few people, if any, who truly love us unconditionally. Mahal tayo in spite of all our faults, all our failures, all our weaknesses, and with no strings attached. Jackpot talagang maituturing pag meron taong ganyan sa atin. Well, ganyan na ganyan ang pagmamahal ng aso. (Ganyan din kaya ang mga isinilang sa Year of the Dog? Chooos! Parinig! Lol!)

A dog loves you unconditionally. You can neglect him, and he loves you, turn your back on him, and he loves you, abuse him with words, or even physically; still mahal ka pa rin nya. Kahit dinededma mo na sya, pero lalapit pa rin sha at ishe-shembot pa rin nya ang buntot nya. Ibang klase talaga!

Maituturing na para syang si Lord. Hindi ko sinasabi na with matching shembot din si Lord ng buntot nya ha. Pero yung response nya is very similar. We turn our backs on Him, pero si Lord, nungka! We neglect His Word yet the Lord remains faithful. Walang duda, He is the same yesterday …today and forever. (Nasa Hebrews yan mga ning!)

A basta! Nami-miss ko ang aso ko. 🙁

Gusto mong matuto sa sinasabing pagmamahal na walang kundisyon? Subukan mo mag-alaga at magmahal ng aso.

Kung hindi ka pa nakapag-alaga ng aso sa buong buhay mo, malamang 100% nakanganga ka lang ngayon na nagbabasa neto at hindi maka-relate. Ahihi!

Have a nice ASH Wednesday, mortals!

Ang Salarin

Ganda ng gising ko kaninang umaga. Maganda ang panahon. Duda ko, nauna pa yata ako nagising kesa kay Papa Jesas sa sobrang aga. Hehehe! Mga 4am ako dumilat kanina at ang unang sinilip ko bago nagbanyo ay ang katabi kong netbook tsinek ko kung tapos na ang torrent download ko ng movie na Hes Just Not That Into You. Hmmmn, tapos na. Yey! May panonoorin na naman ako mamaya.

Mas lalong pinaganda ang morning ko ng almusal kong to:

Daing Na Bangus

Daing na bangus, pritong talong at kamatis.

Wala sa kodak ang kaning-lamig na sinangag with sandamakmak na bawang.

Ayos na ayos na sana ang umaga ko nang biglang namataan ko ang almost 2-years old kong pink flip-flop.

Hindi ko alam kung saan diyan si Kremo kasi magkapareho sila ng tsura ng isa nyang kapatid. Pero duda ko siya yung nasa kanan. Paano ako nakakasiguro? Ewan ko. Siguro dahil sa lukso ng dugo! Wahaha!

As of this writing, andito na sa pamamahay namin ang bunso ko at nag umpisa na ako kaninang umaga maglinis ng wiwi at popo nya. Waaaaa!
