Meet Mack.

This is Mack…

This afternoon we adopted Mack from SPCA Cincinnati Northside. He was taken in as a stray. He’s a purebred pointer and we were told he’s about 3-ish years old…

Every day for the last two years, I’ve received emails from Adopt-a-Pet.com with all dogs that are up for adoption around the Greater Cincinnati area. Every email is packed with all sorts of beautiful dogs. But none of them really spoke to me. Occasionally I would send forward one along here or there to Genifer. I sent an email about one other dog, Parker. He was a foster and his foster family decided to keep him. I saw Mack in the email and after showing him to Genifer, sent an email to SPCA inquiring about adoption. When I didn’t hear anything back from them, we got up this morning and went over to SPCA to see if Mack was still there. He was. We filled out the paperwork and brought him home. And now we have a new buddy…

Oscar’s definitely been letting him know who’s boss and who runs things around here. And Mack doesn’t seem to mind. He seems to be very easy going. He’s full of energy. But very easy going and carefree…

Being a stray, SPCA gave him the name Mack. We’re in the process of getting him to understand his name. But he listens and responds well when he knows you’re talking to him. He’s neutered, microchipped, completely housebroken, doesn’t pay any mind to the cat, handles all the stairs like they’re nothing, has done okay so far in his crate and already knows sit. We got him a harness instead of a collar. As a result, he doesn’t pull that much on walks. I’ve been able to walk him just fine, recovering hip and all. It’ll take a little bit of work for all of us to get on the same page and figure out a new routine. But that’s what makes it interesting. And 859 days after Milan passed away just like that, we finally have a new buddy in our house. 😀🐶❤️
