Bichon Frise Life Thirteen Welcome Casper
Well it’s been almost a month since I wrote about Yoda our Bichon Frise and a lot has happened in the past few weeks. Yoda was minding his own business walking home from the school run with my husband John when he was attacked. He was rushed to the emergency vet and luckily they dealt with his wounds quickly.
The vet said that Yoda’s leg had only been torn in the skin are and not reached the muscle so we were really pleased. After two weeks of wearing the cone of shame, we were able to have Yoda’s stitches taken out and he is starting to get back to normal. Sylvia has been looking after him well.
However, two weeks ago we gained a new family member called Casper. Casper is 4 years old and was needing a new permanent home. We had been talking for some weeks about finding a companion for Yoda and we felt it would be best to get an older dog, one who was all ready trained, able to show Yoda a thing or two about good behaviour (lol) and one who had all ready had his injections and the snip.
We could not afford a puppy and to be honest, there are so many dogs out there needing homes we wanted to adopt a dog in need. We also wanted Yoda to have someone to keep him busy and play with as he had been quite bored at times.
So along came Casper. He is an amazing friendly and lovely dog. We have fallen in love with him. Casper will listen when we tell him to stay and will come when we call him. He likes cuddles and to lay next to us for company and he just seems really happy.
Yoda was a little surprised to meet Casper and to be honest, Yoda has been a little miffed. He thinks he is the leader and as he was here first he kind of is the boss in a way even though Casper is older. Casper has a talent for stealing Yoda’s food and Yoda has a habit of jumping on Caspers back to say, hey I’m the boss!
At the end of the day, both dogs are really happy. They play together, sleep together and eat together. They blitz together and are just really happy. It’s lovely to have a new family member. Yes, I would love to have one more child in the long term future but for now our family is complete.
Our family is really happy and Sylvia did not know Casper was joining us. We made a video of her meeting him for the first time and it is a great one! you’ll enjoy it.
