This is our family from Thanksgiving 2007. Zoe is the black and white pup on the left, Colby is the reddish one on the right. I was just looking through my pictures on this computer and there aren't very many of Colby! Those are all on the other one! So this post will be mostly filled with Zoe!
This is Colby. He's a hybrid doggie. We've been told he looks like any/all of these: daschund, golden retriever, corgi, chihuhua, and many others. To us, he looks like a long haired weenie dog. Whatever he is, we love him!!
Likes: Playing ball, riding in the car with his head hanging out the window, wrestling with Zoe, chasing his cousin dogs around the yard, chewing bones, playing soccer, food, cheese, snuggling with me, playing with Scott, going for walks, dog classes, putting his ball under the couch or bed then barking at it until we get it out! hot dogs (ironic, right?)
Dislikes: getting in trouble, not being allowed to sleep on our bed, being outside without us, being separated from Zoe, taking medicine, getting his nails trimmed, taking a bath, anyone coming to the door
Full name: Colby Jack H__ Nicknames: CJ, Cheese Puff, Jackster, The Boy, Brother, Weiner Dog, Fatty, Chubby, Chunky Monkey
We got Colby almost 3 months after we got married. He'll be 2 in August (we got him when he was about 4 months old). He is grouchy, loving, protective, silly, and our first child!
This is my Zoe girl, celebrating Easter in her bunny suit! Zoe is also a hybrid dog, with the vet's best guess being the oh so vague, "wire terrier mix." Who knows what that means! We've watched the Terrier parts of dog shows, and she doesn't look like any of them!
Likes: Everything! She is so happy! Food, treats, being held, chasing birds, chasing Colby, chasing bugs or anything else that flies, riding in the car, now with her head out the window like big brother, rawhides, stuffed toys, sour cream, dancing on her back paws, watching tv, digging
Dislikes: being separated from Colby, people sneaking up on her, anyone yelling or being too loud, having toys taken away
This picture is from the first night we got her. Scott was playing video games and she just zonked out in my lap!
Full Name: Zoe (said like Zo-E) Jean H__ Nicknames: LBG (Little Black Girl), Sister, the Little One, Zo (said like Joe), Baby Girl, Little Girl
We got Zoe on Saturday, October 26th (also about 4 months old). That first week we had her, she started getting sick and was diagnosed with Parvovirus and we were told she had a 50/50 chance of surviving it. She was put on 24 hour care with IV drip through the weekend. We picked her up on Sunday morning, and our little fighter has been amazing ever since. We fell in love with her in that short week, both cried when we had to sign her euthanization forms, and were so happy that she made it through the weekend!
Not a single day goes by when we don't say something like "look how cute Zoe is being" or "Colby, you're so weird!" We love our little dogs!
