Well it was inevitable that while becoming a dog groomer I would get a dog. I have never had my own dog. We had a dog when I was a kid up until I was
about 13. I have had cats as an adult but no dogs. I never had a job or work schedule that allowed me to have one honestly til now. I have been
working at a grooming shop with my friend for 7 mths and I love it. I never thought I'd be doing this but it's great, I enjoy it and I have always
loved animals. It's cute to see each ones personality.
Speaking of personality, my little guy Rosco is quite the character!
I found him on Craigslist. I had been looking for a couple months for a dog and when i saw Rosco I knew i had to meet him. I sent a txt to the number
listed and she immediately responded and we set up a date and time to meet up with Rosco. I went a week ago today and brought him home on Monday.
He is the sweetest dog I swear! They said he is a Pekingese/Corgi, the Pekingese I definitely see but not Corgi. I'll admit I'm not all too familiar
with Corgi's but the ones I see at work I just don't see it. lol He is so far a little angel. The girl I got him from told me that while she was
fostering him he was the sweetest dog and how he liked to snuggle and play. She said he was a very good dog and so far he is. He does have food
allergies according to his vet paper work. Luckily enough at work we just started carrying food so I have access to 80 different brands. I have him on
a specific diet right now. It will take time to see how it works. If this food works i will keep him on it. If I have to I will make his food weekly.
I have been researching homemade dog food and the proper nutrients that are required per serving. It actually comes out to be cheaper to make his food
and healthier. Those who know me know I love to cook. I already make my cats food, why not the dog?!
The girl said his allergies were a deterrent
for people wanting to adopt him and his underbite, which I absolutely love. They also didn't want to deal with figuring out his food allergies and the
cost. I knew for me it wasn't a problem. I could afford the diet he needed and I knew I could take care of him like he needed even grooming wise. He
has meds for his itching and goes to my vet next week for a check up and something new for his itching. He is up to date on shots so that is good. He
is about 2 and a half and listens very well. He even grabs for his leash when he is ready to go out! He comes to work with me and doesn't fuss at all.
He is very well behaved. I couldn't be happier with him. He is a great addition. Our pet family is set. We have a cat and a dog.
He also loves to snuggle! He jumps up on the bed at night and pretty much nose dives into the pillow then rolls around and snuggles up on your
shoulder. He is sweet as can be. He loves to roll around on anything lol.
He also like to play and nose dive the pillows on the couch then roll around. He also does this with my comforter and carpet in the bedroom. It's
hilarious. I have never seen a dog do this. Anyone else's dog do this? lol
I was so proud of my Buffy. She has done really well since I brought him home. The cat I had yrs ago use to torture dogs that came to our house. lol I
always felt so bad! Now Rosco I think is a little scared of her cause she has hissed at him if he gets too close but she will get right up on him and
he won't do anything and she doesn't either, she just sniffs him. He seems to be letting her come to him. She didn't seem to mind him watching her
I have my little Princess/Diva kitty, Buffy and my Little Man, Rosco
I think once i leave them alone they will become buds. They both greeted me at
the door last night when I got back from the store. I picked up Buffy and put her in my lap and sat down. Rosco came over and started giving out
kisses to me and Buffy. He licked her face a few times and she just made this face and didn't flinch. I thought I was gonna get injured lol! She is
honestly the best cat I have ever had. The only thing she doesn't like is when i have to shave near her bum at work while she gets a groom
Tell me your dog/cat introduction stories!
