Jubilee's new puppy

Last month, I came home from dance camp to learn that Jubilee's dog Sox was missing. He was only around 2 years old, and she'd trained him to be a very good, obedient, and gentle dog. We miss him a lot, but after realizing that he probably wouldn't be found, Jubilee began to want another dog. Soon, another sign appeared near the one we'd put up for lost Sox, this time saying that someone had found a puppy. After he wasn't claimed by anyone, Jubilee and mom went to pick him up today.



He's definitely part Chow (as Sox and our other dog Midnight is), and we think part Lab or Golden Retriever. More than that, he's extremely cute! Jubilee named him Orius, after the centaur in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. She's definitely a huge Narnia fan!

Jubilee spent the afternoon playing with Orius, and introducing him to our menagerie of 1 dog and 6 cats (not to mention 2 birds and 2 fish!) and exploring with him the great outdoors that he'll now call home. Jubi loves animals, and I look forward to watching her train this sweet puppy!

How cute! I wonder how he's going to get alone with all those cats :)

I think they'll become great friends - all of our other dogs and cats have. They grow up together, then end up being quite affectionate, rubbing up against each other and licking each other's fur. It's quite cute. =)

That's sad you guys couldn't find Sox. But the new little guy is such a darling!!! I'm sure he's loads of fun. ;)

I am sorry about Sox. I would be devastated if Nikki got lost. However, this little guy looks adorable...Is he quite friendly already?

Anna Naomi said...

Yes, little Ori (as we're calling him, at least when he's little) is a quite friendly and sweet dog! He's happy (he's smiling in the picture!) and loves attention. =)

He is so precious! I can't wait to come and see him.

I hope Sox is happy where he is now. :)
