Thunder the puppy
#1
I'm really excited about my new puppy . I can't get attachments to work on mobile but there are pics on my Instagram, @fringehiker. 

She is 8w old, Australian Shepherd named Thunder. She seems really smart and soon she'll be trained for adventure.

Aaaahhhh I saw the pictures yesterday already, so dear and adorable! She seems to like you already. :>

She's very beautyful! May I out of curiosity ask where she comes from, an animal shelter, a breeder or something different? I've always felt that influences a pet's personality a lot.

That's a great question! I definitely support rescuing animals from a shelter, but I had my heart set on a dog with specific requirements, and I was impatient, so I got Thunder from a reputable breeder who raises them on a farm. So she is already familiar with being around other animals : )

Today is her first thunderstorm. I was worried she'd be afraid and her name would become an irony, but she seems very calm.

I added a new member to my team yesterday. Her nickname is Thunder the Australian Shepherd and she is 8 weeks old. I'll probably start a thread for her in Everything Goes. 

Post schedule will be erratic while the two of us work out a new schedule. However i'm taking a week off work, so maybe that will help with more frequent posts.

Ooooh you got a doggie! Such sweet and adorable pets they are! Until they destroy your living room, that is, at which point the urge to use them as a footrest is strong.

Nah, just kidding, they're always awesome, and deserve the utmost love and respect! I wish you the very best with caring for them, Iron, and by all means take the time to do so!

Haha today I left her locked in her crate while I ran an errand - or so I thought. The lock didn't engage properly and she greeted me from the porch as I got home. Miraculously she didn't do a single thing wrong while she had her freedom <3 I owe her one for that.

Guess she missed you already?

Adorable and well behaved?  That sounds like the perfect pet!

I've said this before, but I'll say it again: congrats on getting such an awesome puppy, Iron! Especially one that isn't as destructive as a mole digging up the garden! Makes me wish I could have one, if I was not so incompetent with them (Well, I can take care of reptiles and cats, but that's nothing). If you have anymore stories about them later, please share them!

Since when is that nothing, dear? :C Some reptiles aren't that easy to care for, requirering food supplements or special conditions in their terrarium.

What I meant by that is emotional care and attention, more than the actual management of the pet's health. Taking care of lizards can be a easy chore due to how bliase they are about affection, but with a dog, bunny, rat, or any other mammal? They'll go nuts if you can't provide the proper love and mental stimulation they deserve. Such is the case with me, who at best can cuddle animals for a bit before something goes wrong.....

Dogs aren't picky about how you spend time with them. All they want is that time. I find it gratifying how much they love any attention at all.

Thunder is jealous right now because the laptop is in her spot on my lap. We just got back from literally chasing a rainbow, after a long storm that didn't bother her at all : )
