Say Hello to Darcy

Hello,

How are all of you and your fur kids coping with these crazy times we are living through? I don't know about you, but it's times like these that I'm grateful for my four legged family members.
Hello, how do you do-right before we went out the door at the Joplin Humane Society
             Hello, how do you do-just before we left the Joplin Humane Society on July 10th.


And speaking of fur kids, I have an introduction to make. After losing both my girls within six months, it was time to add to our pack. Now we still have three oldsters with us; Dylan (age 15), Penny (age 11) and, of course he who once was the baby, Niki (age 9).

I am thrilled to introduce Darcy, who has just recently joined the family. Michael has been wanting someone to help him take care of the place, as you might say. We finally headed down to The Joplin Humane Society and he met Darcy (whose name was Bobby at the time). 
                                                              Going For a Ride!

Darcy is part Border Collie and at ten months old, a bundle of energy. I think that is why his original family gave him up. He needs space to just run like crazy. 

 Darcy loves to swim, which does not make a fishing loving grandson too happy. Darcy scares away the fish!




We’ve taught him to sit and not chase chickens. He would still love to catch a sheep (he can’t get in their field, fortunately). If Covid weren’t upon us, we would have him enrolled in Puppy School.


I'm such a help! Catch any fish?

When our grand old Black Lab, Bennett passed in January of ’19, things just haven’t been the same. I don’t know if Darcy will fill his shoes but we’re already pretty crazy about the guy.

If you have read Jane Austin, something might hit you about both names. Yes, occasionally, I name our dogs after Jane Austin characters. And Darcy is a fitting name for this dapper boy.
Framed! Darcy's creative way of bringing back the Frisbee.


That all I have today. It’s been a nice feeling to get to talk about a new fur baby. Has anyone else added someone new to their life?



Take care & Stay safe



Terri

    1. Thank you Brian. And another note, the five cat brothers have Darcy totally under their control. They have their bluff in! One little swat and that was all it took :-)

    1. Thank you. Yes, he definitely has the energy of all three of our oldsters put together and probably more!

    1. Thank you-I think he is too-but, I'm probably a bit prejudiced. Thanks for dropping by!

  5. Thanks for adopting a dog that needs special care! We did, too, and he looks a lot like Darcy. Terri

    1. Hello, Thank you for dropping by. At this point, all our fur kids are adopted. Darcy just needed somewhere safe where he could run to his hearts content. I thought the name fitted, he looks rather dapper to me.

  6. Darcy is one to fill up your days and attention! He's a dog who wants to have fun and he can find it at your place!
    I saw the joy in your good man's eyes even past the necessary mask.My Milo would have a good time with Darcy at your place too... he's only 3 and still puppy and adventurous but he can't play with friends now and doesn't understand. I'm so sorry for your losses... I thought I couldn't come back from Cole (our poodle son before Milo) passing, til one day he came to me in an unmistakable way and said he loved me but I had to let him go for both our sakes. I began to heal finally and then met a puppy... he took over our lives bringing joy again. LeeAnna at not afraid of color

  7. Hello-thank you for dropping by. Darcy is a handful too and keeps wanting to play with our older dogs and that does not go over at all. I know what you have gone through about missing those special ones. I'm slowly getting over Sophia and Millie (we still have Niki). It was hard losing both my special girls six months apart (we had to say goodby to Millie on May 1st) and I'm not ready to get another Poodle quite yet. Darcy is a good dose of happiness and I'm glad we brought him into our life. But, if it was Covid, he would be in Puppy school because at 10 months he doesn't really know better although I have taught him to sit. Take care and stay safe.
