Meet George

So my friend who found the puppy at a construction site… well she was hoping she could keep it… and finally heard back from her landlord, and she couldn’t, so now, he has a new home.

A new home to him that’s still a new home to us. So now I’m going to be that person. The person with the puppy and dog pictures. Yup. That’s gunna happen. It’s pretty nice though because he’s really well behaved thus far. Since B was the one who agreed to take him, he also got to name him and picked George. Why, I don’t know, but hey, it works. We are teaching him slowly how to run, and he already knows how to sit and walk really well on a leash. He’s only 9 weeks old, and basically no one knows what he really is. They think he’ll get between 15 and 20 pounds. He will be going to puppy school soon.

So I have a new running partner and a friend when B is at work, which can be sometimes 3 days without him being home. George is quite fierce, so watch out! So now onto super cute puppy pictures.

Unpacking is so much more fun with someone to do it with! B left this morning for New Orleans for a few days for a friends wedding but with work in full swing, aka race day is continuing to count down, things were too hectic for me to leave. Tomorrow morning I’m going for a four miler and then I have a 7 miler on Saturday or Sunday!

    He is so cute & definitely looks like a George!!
    Be careful taking a puppy to run though – especially one so very young. He can really hurt his little bones.

    George looks vaugely reminiscent of my dog. I’m glad you’ll have company when B is away.

    Seriously cute! I was wondering if you were going to keep him after the pictures you tweeted! Puppies are fun :)

    Not sure if you have puppy day care in your area, but best money ever spent! My puppy goes to play all day and then sleeps all night :)

    OH MY GOSH HE IS ADORABLE! My Lambeau’s best bud is named George, which turned into Georgie. (Yes, I’m that person who says her dog has friends) Now the true question is, will he make it onto the holiday card?! (I think we all know the answer to that!)

    I wish I had a four-legged running partner. I bought a harness for my cat, but I don’t think he’ll ever warm up to it. :)

    He’s so cute!! I also agree with Carly though – I’ve heard that you’re supposed to wait until they’re around 9 months to a year before taking them running because of the bone development thing. Maybe something to ask your vet about.

    I rescued a dog in February and she is the light of my life. I always wonder who rescued who. You will LOVE being a dog owner and running with a friend. My doggie was special needs so if you need any dogie advice, just ask. Congratulations!

    George is such a cutie! We just got our first two dogs a few months ago and it has been great. I never knew how much fun it would be having a dog. I can’t wait to see how big George gets!
