30 Days of Thanks - Day 22 Let's talk Marty
Okay, let's talk about Marty to clarify his existence! First, yes, Marty is indeed Carlos. He is 7 1/2 years young. Although we know very little about his previous life, we do know he was with his last family for only 5 months. He is the Pug that I rescued and delivered to CNY Pug Rescue, the whole 184 mile journey thing. After I dropped him to them, I kept in contact with them about his placement. All the homes that had wanted an older male Pug were not interested in him. The second week he was there, a woman was going to adopt him, but she changed her mind the day before he was to go with her, so........ it was decided that he should come and live with us. I know weak moment, crazy in the head, the whole nine yards. Yes, four Pugs is a lot, but he deserves a forever home. He has adapted very well to living with us and the girls have adapted to him quite well too. There are the crazy moments, but that was true even before he arrived. He sleeps in a porta-crib in my bedroom at night and the girls get in the bed and everyone is just fine with that. He seems to be getting a little less clingy with me. Before, everytime I left the room he would sit by that door I went through and cry. Now I think he realizes that I will indeed be back. We've learned a few things about him in the past 2 1/2 weeks he has been with us.... he is wonderful with potty outside, he does NOT mark in the house, he runs in from potty like the devil is after him for a treat, he snores horrible, when he coughs he sounds like a human, he had bad breath, hates garbage trucks, and loves to play crazy with Rosie. He is home.
