Boy's Best Friend

This is the little bundle of energy we adopted this weekend.  He is a Dauschund-Beagle mix, and it's not hard to tell.  He has the face and markings of a beagle, but his body is all dauschund.

His name is Dominic Deagle.  And props to your nerdiness if you get the joke.*

So far, here is what we know about the little guy:

  • He travels well in the car.  On our way back home last night, he curled up on the floor of the van and slept the entire way.
  • He loves to go for walks, and never pulls.  Until he sees a squirrel.  Then, he points, and gets really confused when you want to keep walking instead of chasing the squirrel.
  • Our place is surrounded by squirrels.
  • He is intelligent - five hours after getting him and changing his name, he was already beginning to respond to it.
  • Someone loved him once.  He is house-trained and wants to sleep in the bed.
  • He plays fetch.  And he usually brings it back. 
  • He loves Miles.  That's why he came home with us.

*If not, google Dominic Deegan for a delightfully cute webcomic.
