A couple of weeks ago I posted about her in the Foyer, but this afternoon, Hypothetical Dog became Actual Dog and she is perfect.

Leaving the shelter she was super excited for a great walk.

Image
"Wait a minute... I don't know this car!"

Image
"Resigned to my fate. RIP me the end is near."

Image
"Okay maybe this isn't so bad"

Image
"FINALLY you open the window! Learn to take a hint!"

Then we walked in the door and she immediately flopped over and made herself at home in my kitchen.

Image
"This nice cool floor isn't too bad"

Image
"This is fine. I live here now. It's all fine."

Image
"Zzzzzz. Making new friends is hard work!"


She's been doing happy wiggles since she walked in the door and hasn't left my side including up and down two flights of stairs to my room. Right now she's snoring away in front of the TV and we are absolutely smitten. Even though my dinner was 10x more interesting to her than her dinner.

Thanks she is the cutest. (She says 'thank you, PPK, for welcoming me home') Her name at the shelter was Angel and she's a 10 year old AmStaff mix. She's one of the politest dogs I've ever met, both in the house and walking. She's not really a fan of other dogs, but 'dog aggressive' implies a level of motivation she doesn't have. She walks on a loose leash and LOVES to sit in exchange for treats.

She's settling in really well really quickly so that's exciting. She's a little bit anxious today and hasn't eaten her breakfast and is mostly ignoring the food I've offered her for dinner, so I'm keeping an eye on that. It's a lot of change to go through for an older dog that lived with a family for seven years before being returned to the shelter (We're told she was returned for incontinence but so far she's on meds for a UTI and they seem to be working. It's all fine if it stops working, though, I have an incontinent horse too. She's never losing her home again.)

You say this, but my dad has actually taken to calling her 'Hypo' because I call her 'Hypothetical Dog'. We're playing with the idea of changing her name but I think we're going to keep it since mom said that under no circumstances can I name my dog 'Ælfgifu'. Mostly we call her 'Sweetie' and she responds to that as well as 'Angel'.

Because I cannot get over how cute this dog is, spamming more photos:

Her first night she went up to my room and acted like she'd lived there all her life.
Image
Because I'm a horrible monster, I kicked her off my bed and onto her bed (she snores!) where she slept through the night.

Then we woke up and she was an intrepid adventuring beast. She had a very exciting morning with an exciting walk. She discovered a river!
Image

However, she quickly ran out of steam in the hot weather (poor thing) and came home and flopped in front of the air conditioning (I know the feeling, sweetie)
Image

She has very quickly become My Dog. Every time I turn around, I see this:
Image
Probably it's time to start preemptively working against separation anxiety because while mom works from home, she's already starting to stand whining at the door when I leave.

I keep trying to get this on film but when she sees the camera come out she stops and comes looking for attention. Will keep trying!

So yes. This is Hypothetical Dog and she is wonderful.

She is absolutely gorgeous. Congratulations! What a sweet face; pits have the greatest faces! Is there anything I love more than a pit or pit mix? No. No, there is not. And the happy wiggle dance is the BEST THING EVER.

We live with an old lady pit bull and she is just the greatest.
