Introducing Bessie Puppy

All though our married life Greg and I have had multiple dogs. So our plan when Bonnie and Belle joined our family was that when the time was right we would be getting a third Golden Retriever.  This time we want to get a British Cream Golden Retriever so we called Glenda at Cottage Grove Farms, the breeder where Bonnie and Belle came from to see if she had any available puppies. She had one and after hearing about her and seeing her picture we knew she was the perfect fit for our family.

Yesterday we brought Bessie Puppy home. On our Two Pups and a Kitty facebook page last night I wrote the following in a reply to a “how are things working out” question. “Bonnie’s attitude is “it’s fine with me, but you still love me right.?” Belle is slightly anxious, she is keeping Bessie in line and saved Linus from the attack of the puppy. Linus doesn’t know what to think but is curious. Lucy is annoyed that we brought something else home! Bessie loves her house, is friendly with the pups but respectful, wants to play with Linus and keeps coming up to us to say hi. 3 hours in I’d say things are going pretty well!”

So far we have discovered that Bessie is a barker but does settle down on her own.  She loves to be in the thick of the action so at our house that means when we go to do something we now have 2 dogs, 1 puppy and 2 cats watching and or walking in our footsteps to make sure they don’t miss anything (or we do it right,I’m not really sure which.) She loves to carry toys and has figured out how to carry a tennis ball.  We are practicing “leave it” and “give” and are doing a lot of redirection which she happily does. She gets car sick but has only had a couple of accidents in the house.  Last night Bessie only woke up once which I call a huge success and this morning Belle is starting to think that maybe that little pup who keeps following the big pups around might not be so bad after all. On to day two!

  1. How much fun can you have? I believe that this adventure has just been building momentum since Bonnie and Belle entered your life. This is the next part in your continuing story with Bessie entering stage right — not forgetting Lucy and Linus, Margret, and Greg as supporting characters. All of your grandkids are going to have a ball with your new puppy. The girls will have a puppy more their size. Kedan. Ethan, and Aaron be anxious to meet Bess. Lots of fun at the Abbotts.
    May everyone sleep well tonight!!!!

    • Thank you Carolyn! I think they will enjoy playing with Bessie. We managed to sleep all night last night and woke up at 4:30 which is almost our normal wake up time. 🙂

  2. I just found your blog, as I am new to blogging:) Your Goldens are beautiful! We too have 2 Goldens…Cali who is 3 and Skyler who just turned 3 months. How old are your dogs? Are Golden puppies the most wonderful thing ever!!

    • Hi Deanna, welcome to my blog and the world of blogging. I can’t wait to visit your blog. I love your pups names. They are close in age to our pups. Bonnie and Belle are 2 1/2 years and Bess is 10 weeks old. It would be fun to compare notes on our pups. Are you on facebook?
