I got a new dog & she looks like a mini girl clone of my dog Vie! Which one is Vie & which one is the clone? haha She's the dirty little dog sitting on my boyfriend's chest.
I got her Wednesday 17 so as of today I'v had her for 6 days. I was told she is a 3 year old Chihuahua mix and clearly she's got a lot going on. She's got buggsy eyes and thin legs like a Chihuahua but her coat color, floppy ears, and long body are definitely not Chihuahua. My dog Vie is a Jack Russell mix and even tho he has odd characteristics like rounded ears and a black and white coat color he still looks like a Jack Russell. Unlike his new sister that doesn't really look like a Chihuahua at first glance.
When I got my new baby girl on Wednesday I was able to spend all day with her and take her outside to go potty every couple of hours but the day after I had to work. I had her secluded to my bathroom since she's a new dog and hasn't been to the vet yet. Just wanted to make sure she was house broke considering we have carpet and she was spayed the day before I got her so I was unable to bath her and she was DIRTY. I really didn't want her running around the house until she got a vet check up & a bath.
So the 2 pictures above was Thursday when I had to leave for work at 9am. I was hopeful my boyfriend was going to come home early but he ended up getting home around 5-6pm. Apparently, she painted the bathroom floor, doors, and her bed with liquid poo. I wasn't coming home until midnight so my boyfriend had to do the dirty work. So great full for him. He cleaned & sanitized everything and gave baby girl a sponge bath being careful to not get her incision wet.
Thankfully on Friday we had a vet appointment. She was tested for worms & turns out she had whip-worms so we got medicine for her & some for Vie just to be safe. I never knew how expensive de-wormer medicine is! I paid $113 for a 6 month supply for baby girl but since I was going to give some to Vie it's only going to be a 2 month supply which should be plenty anyways. We also got the green light to give her a bath! So much hair shedded off of her when we bathed her but now she's all clean with a beautiful shiny coat. She's got some dandruff from dry skin, coarse hair, and still quite a bit of shedding. Hopefully with the high quality food I'v been feeding Vie she'll catch up on all her nutrients needed for healthy skin, coat, and body. At least now she's allowed to roam the house. I still keep a really close eye because she is not house broken. She's only had 2 pee accidents inside but in general she holds it in and has started walking towards the glass door and looking out when she's gotta go.
In case anybody is wondering I feed my pooches EarthBorn Holistic Coastal Catch.
If you've made it this far into the post then help me think of a name for her! I want to give her a name with meaning like I did with Vie. I want her to have a name with the meaning or something symbolizing "calm." She adjusted so incredibly well and is just an over all tranquil little doll. She was super calm and comftorable when she met Vie and she is very people friendly. The second my boyfriend layed down on the ground she hoped up on him and just went in for kisses.
Vie's name means "life" in French. Reason being was I had a dog before him, it was actually the neighbors dog that I thought was a stray and my neighbors failed to tell me that it was their dog for 3 weeks! I took care of him and called him Pumpkin since it was October and he was an orange Pomeranian mix. Once I was told it was their dog I tried putting him back in their yard and he kept escaping back into my yard so I eventually just left the gate open so he could go greet his true owners when they were home. Long story short he got ran over by a car and died. 2 weeks later I got a new puppy and decided to call him Vie since he was the new life that came after death.
