|I liked it. I liked it a whole bunch.|
So the good:
-He can go outside, chill in my office, and go home to learn how to use stairs and sleep on a couch
-He can get a bath (he stinks!)
-I can get him neutered!!!
-He can meet Parker and Skye. This will most likely happen Saturday- keep your paws crossed!
-I can bring him home to foster him starting Monday, though I'll probably wait a few more days until I'm confident in his ability to share his living space with other dogs.
|Can I go outside now?|
-I'm not technically approved to foster him yet. I live on the other side of a state line all of 15 minutes away from work. Bringing a rabies dog across state lines is a no-no, but they may make an exception considering the circumstances.
-I may need to pay for him to be neutered if I can't find someone to do it for free.
-He is not allowed to leave our property unless it is to transport him to an approved site (ie-work). So we'll be playing in the yard... a lot...
-It is still a rabies quarantine, so if he did die of the disease (highly unlikely), myself and my family can look forward to a series of shots. Woo!
Also, sorry for a little grossness, but Cheeks is finally on the mend from his big bad bite wounds!
As a final thought, you may have noticed that this guy hasn't got a proper name! For shame! I'm totally stumped, so I need your help! There are a few qualifications, so that his name fits into the theme that Parker and Skye have set.
#1- Nature-based: I grew up next to the Parker River, and my mom was enthralled by Skye's sky blue coat. So a rock, a bush, a butterfly... it doesn't matter, as long as it ties into the natural world.
#2- Preppy kid name: This was an accidental coincidence, but both Parker and Skylar are popular kids names right now, which I didn't realize until my friend (who is a preschool teacher) pointed it out. This is not a requirement for Meathead's name, but would be a happy bonus!
Thanks in advance!
