Earlier this year, our family lost our Yorkie Lucky, who lived a long life completely ensconced in soft and pretty fabrics. It was a significant loss, but it showed us that we really enjoyed having a furry member in our lives. After researching and searching for the right breeder, we were blessed enough to find the perfect addition to our family. Our new puppy Fitzgerald!
He is a Rhodesian Ridgeback, born without the ridge (although you can see it slightly when he gets excited and starts to run), and he has the sweetest personality. It has been an adjustment, particularly for me, to live with a dog that grows so quickly and will eventually weigh over 100 pounds, but thankfully, he is playful and full of cheer, and that has made all the difference.
We welcomed him home a few months ago when he was eight weeks old and kept him carefully protected while we waited for him to get all his required shots, but he has been free this month, and it has been so much fun to watch. Of course, before he even arrived, we bought him a set of bow ties that he has been rocking every day, so he is off to a stylish start.
Then and now. He has grown quickly and is now over 40 pounds which is nuts! We look forward to sharing more of his shenanigans!
