Izzy, The Latest Addition to our Family

Our new puppy’s name is Izzabella…Rich named her after his girl, Bella, and we’re calling the puppy Izzy. Bella is 11, Honey is almost 6 and in this video, Izzy is 9 weeks old..She’s now 13 weeks old, and much larger than when we made the video. After I made the video, I handed it to Rich with some notes I wrote, and the video and notes disappeared until earlier today, when he found them inside a cardboard box…It’s a man thing…haha.. I’m just glad he found it.

A lot of things have changed since making this video. Izzy now loves Bella and Honey and plays with both of them often. She thinks Rich is the greatest, which he is.. She’s still going for car rides, but not nearly as often as in the first week. A lot of things have changed since making this video. Izzy now loves Bella and Honey and plays with both of them often. She’s still going for car rides, but not nearly as often as in the first week. She sleeps most of the night, but by 5AM, she’s ready for trouble, and loves that time of day, and getting into trouble by herself, especially under our bed. She’s now about 20 pounds, so almost double in size from this video and unfortunately, and saddest of all, Honey’s cancerous bump on her nose, has come back. We’re hoping it chooses to go down again, like it did the first time, but we can’t count on that, so we’re enjoying the time we have with Honey. On a really bright note, Honey and Izzy are very close. We had to get a puppy because Honey wouldn’t have accepted another full grown dog into our house, and we were afraid she wouldn’t like Izzy, but after a few days, it was clear that she would be a great play pal for Honey. Honey has high anxiety and has had it since she came home with us from a “farm” that was actually a horrible puppy mill. At the time, I tried to have them shut down, but our county didn’t have anyone in the role to do so, and since, they have hired a lovely woman, who is keeping a very close eye on that farm, much to my relief. If you are wondering why we didn’t adopt from our animal shelter, our county does a really wonderful job and they never have puppies, and rarely keep dogs for more than a few days. I did check our local newspaper/facebook/etc and couldn’t find any puppies, and only found Izzy by chance, when my brother-in-law came to visit and mentioned his brother (who lives near us) had gotten a puppy that looked like Honey about a year ago. He got the breeder information from his brother and the rest is history.
