The New Kid in Town

"Johnny-come-lately, the new kid in town...
Everybody's Talkin', about my NEW HOUND!"

Meet DUFF, a 10-week old Treeing-Walker-Coonhound mix we adopted last week! I found him Christmas Night on Petfinder.com (there may have been some alcohol involved) and emailed his picture to my husband who's been DYING for a puppy (there may have been more than some alcohol involved...) well the next morning before I could ask "Did you get the e-..." my inbox was flooded "When do we pick him up?"; "I spoke to the woman, she sent me these additional photos"; "I filled out the application"; "We have an appointment to see him at 5:00". GULP. I guess we are getting a puppy.

Needless to say it was love at first sight for all parties involved. And as luck would have it, Kenny drove home, so I got to hold the puppy on my lap and bond with him first. "Oooh, he's so cute... he's such a momma's boy... look how he follows me around... look how he struggles to get up in the chair with me until I help him up..." HEY and look how he won't stop humping my arm or chewing at everything in sight! Somehow he brought to mind that sock puppet from the Pets.com commercials, remember that thing? Hence his new nickname, and the quote of the week: "GET OFF ME, YOU HORNY SOCK PUPPET!!"

Duff is adorable! I'm sure you will have alot to tell us about this little one & what he has chewed! Puppies are like having 2 kids! But he's soooo cute! Congrats!
