She Didn't Even Know She Was "Pregnant"

Hello all Ziggy here,

Please don't be afraid by the post title, it will all make sense after a few short sentences I promise!

This past Saturday Jessie and Mike decided to take a ride up to Pet Co to shop around for Pedro. They had heard about an ongoing adoption day that was being held there by Last Chance Animal Rescue and figured they would get some puppy love while they were there too.

Well guess what they came home with!?!

Meet Veatch (originally called Ditto). A 4-6 month old Lab/Corgi mix (corgidor) that was rescued from a high kill shelter down south. Veatch was brought up to the Big Apple by the very loving and devoted volunteers from Last Chance Animal Rescue when he was only 6 weeks old. This sweet little guy was begging to find his forever home, and when Mike and Jessie strolled up... he found it.

Veatch got his name from a canyon around 180 miles off the tip of Long Island! It's known to be a great fishing area for tuna. Mike plans to take a fishing trip there some day (Mike LOVES fishing). Who knows, maybe Veatch will go to Veatch Canyon!

So while on a random shopping spree for Pedro, Jessie and Mike wound up becoming parents of their very own furkid without even realizing they were expecting!

So far Veatch is the perfect puppy. He is very well behaved and loves everyone he meets. He gets along with Pedro for the most part, and only bothers him when he can't find a suitable squeaky toy. He is almost already house broken and knows a few commands which has really impressed everyone (Jessie thinks it is because he was fostered). He loves going for walks and will grab the leash and pull you back to the house when he's had enough. He loves playing with squeaky toys for hours on end, which can drive you a little crazy, but when he's done playing all he wants it to be by your side for a snooze.

Jessie and Mike think Veatch is just what they needed to help get them through the passings of Saffron and I. And although this little guy has some big shoes to fill, I think he will be the perfect fit for my girl.

Woo Hoo and congrats on the new arrival. Lab and Corgi - very interesting combo. He is going to make those to very happy and Pedro will be excited to have someone to play with too. Now what role did you play, Ziggy, in planting the seed of this new life? ;-)

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

hey Ziggy, it's great to hear from you again. We think this is a purdy cool idea.

Butt sniffs and tail wags to the new guy, Veatch. He sure is a cutie.
