Meet Parker Doiron!
I am in love with him!
We just got him on New Year’s Day, so you can understand why I haven’t been blogging this week. I just want to spend all my down time with this lovable pup.
Parker is a 4 lb. Yorkie. He should grow to about 10-11 lbs. He’s only 3 months and has already been neutered. He was extremely shy and tried to get away from us when we tried to pick him up, but now he lets us do anything.
Before we checked out all of the small hair dogs on New Year’s Day, we really had a Yorkie in mind. When we were introduced to several dogs at a time, the dogs were all over me and they were bouncing off the walls! When little Parker was in the mix, he just walked around so calm and cool and didn’t come near us. We took turns holding him and we knew that he was the one for us. We’re not use to having a dog so we didn’t want a hyper dog.
I know it’s earlier, but he is such a mellow, easy-going dog! Did I tell you I love him?!
We got to work on his smile! 🙂
My niece helped me give him his first bath. I couldn’t have done it without her!
She has a Golden Retriever and a Golden Labrador.
The poor thing was shivering like crazy after! We dried him carefully with the blow dryer!
I bought this jacket at Walmart. It’s probably going to be useless because when he had it on, he acted like he was in a straight jacket and wouldn’t move! So I took it off of him!
This was his first time in my yard. He was scared at first, but then he liked biting the crunchy snow.
Please ignore my recycling bin!
I knew that I would love what ever dog that we bought, but I didn’t think that I could fall in love so fast. In many ways, he acts like a baby. I’m getting the biggest kick out of him! It has been so nice coming home and having him fall asleep on my lap instead of being on my computer! I’ve had a lot of neck and shoulder pain from stress and this week I can feel it getting better and better. So if you don’t hear from me as often, I’m at home loving this little cutie pie! He’s only a puppy for so long and I want to enjoy him!
If you have a pet, please tell me what you have and his/her name. If you have any advice about Yorkies or puppies, please share. I have a coffee table that has a couple of chew marks on it already! And yes, he has chew toys! 🙂
