|Pogo On Adoption Day!|
Pogo became part of our household on Thursday, October 1. He is a 2 1/2 year old Chihuahua, he was previously named Peaches but we thought that was kind of a girly name for him and changed it to Pogo because he bounces like he's on a Pogo stick when you have something he wants (treats, toys etc). He already answers to his new name! A friend of my aunt was giving him away because she worked too much to spend the time with him he deserves. Taryn (my cousin and roommate) and I work at opposite times most of the time. During the instances he would have to be left alone it is only for a few hours. I was a little concerned about him having bad habits we would have to break, but he is a very good dog and we haven't had any major issues at all. He has had 2 accidents but he wasn't trained to let us know when he needs to go out. We are working on that and he's getting better. He doesn't get into things he shouldn't and only barks when somebody is at the door. He didn't even whine or bark during his first night with us (we are crate training him). He is a little nervous about meeting new people and will sometimes take awhile before warming up enough to allow them to pet him. I do think he is warming up to people quicker now, I'm not sure how much socialization he had before we got him. He's brightened up our home so much in the week since we've had him. Sometimes Taryn and I just watch him and laugh because he's so funny and adorable. I'm sure he will get plenty of blog time!
