We got a new puppy in November, and it has been a pleasure to watch her as she grows.
We named her Tegan, which is a Welsh term of endearment that means “number one girl”, “sweetie”, “honeybunch”.
She is a Mutt. Based on what she looks like and how she acts, her ancestry probably includes Pembroke Welsh corgi, Dobermann or Rottweiler, cattle dog, and pit bull but we really don’t know.
We got Tegan when she was two months old. One of the biggest things that attracted us to her was that the first time we met her, she climbed right into our laps. I want to use her as a Pet Therapy dog, so this was a big plus.
When we brought her home, our corgi, Darwin, didn’t know what to do with her. It took him about a month to figure out that puppies can be fun.
Since Darwin accepted Tegan, they’ve been good buddies.
Darwin lets Tegan join him on his favorite perch.
The red “octopus” is a favorite toy of both dogs.
There are limits though. When Darwin has had enough, he retreats to his “man-cave”, which happens to be the bathroom. Tegan is not allowed in.
Once Darwin has had a chance to be by himself for a while, he’ll be back out, ready to play.
