To answer a few of your pressing questions….
How’s Sherbert doing with the new addition?
Miss Sherbert’s 20-hour naps have been reduced to 19-and-a-half hours. She no longer messes around when she wants to get on the sofa and now there are two bowls to clean after all the dinner is gone. The humping…that’s a problem…but the way Lunchbox licks her ears and cleans her jowls after a big drink is alright by everyone. Bottom line: They are by no means bosom buddies (yet) but they can share the same room. (Sherbert is happy that Lunchbox can’t go up steps yet.) Plus, with the addition of LB Sherbert gets partial rights to a new 52-inch bed, but that’s an entirely separate post.
Will Lunchbox be getting his own blog?
Honestly, the thought never crossed my mind, but several people have asked about this. Lunchbox is terrified of bicycles, mesmerized by cars, and runs from tennis balls like they are snapping turtles–he needs to be urbanized and fast. But, he’ll definitely be making regular appearances on UrbanBulldog.com, especially as we try to train him.
So where did you get him, why’s he deaf, how old is he…?
We got him from a breeder in Nebraska; his sister was deaf too, something about white dogs and a genetic abnormality; he was born at the end of September; and he’s been with us for just over a week.
How do you KNOW he’s deaf?
Let’s just say Engineer Dan and I have tested the theory…repeatedly.
Things are about to get a whole lot more interesting around here. 🙂
