OH, and by the way... I think this RULES... it's ABOUT time! Petland's business model completely disgusts me. Petland is accused of scheme to sell sick puppies. It's about time it's in the headlines and hopefully some quick action will be taking place!

He was a sleepy puppy after his big day out!

Exercise Pens Escaped from: 1
Exercise Pen cage-tops ordered: 1
Live video streams: 0
Puppy poops left on carpet: 2
Hours of consecutive sleep at night before waking up and taking puppy out: 4
I think he's starting to understand that the word "Rooney" somehow relates to him. Housebreaking is going slowly, but at least we've had no messes in the crate.
I hope to post some video of him outside if I can capture him in a playful mood. He's hilarious! If you walk away he'll chase and herd you, but if you stop, he instantly lays down calm as can be. Walk away and he's back to the chase!

(above & below) Rooney's blue merle sister digging away at her cooling hole.
Rooney's brother who we were also trying to decide on.
One last run with mama *tears*
All pooped out after a long crazy day. This lasted all of 5 minutes and then came the crying. What a tough thing it must be for a puppy to leave one family and join another!
I took these pictures today as I sat down to get the other pictures uploaded. He followed me into theoffice and plopped onto Dylan's Spiderman chair (after permission of course) :)
So the webcam won't be ready yet! :( Yesterday, I bought a wireless IP camera to setup as Rooney's webcam. Unfortunately, due to my lack of research, I found out there was no easy way, or no way possible, to turn that type of camera into a webcam as they are quite different from your everyday USB webcam or modern day camcorder. Either we're going to have to move a computer or have a dedicated laptop out in that area just to have a webcam going. I found a 133ft USB cable for $289.00 as a possible solution. Um... that's just a little too much.

Pictures to follow!
Thank you so much to Julie at Texas Star Aussies for making our experience so wonderful.
Rooney was a good bit smaller than his brothers, but is very stocky and well built. There was a

10 minutes in the exercise pen and he's managed to get out. Be right back.

I Guess we need to buy a cover for his exercise pen. Into the crate for now!
Anyway, where was I? Ah yes, Rooney is a good bit smaller than his brothers, but is very stocky and well built. He looks to be in great shape, and is obviously quite clever. We watched him play with his litter mates after sizing him up compared to the other two boys, and he loved herding even the bigger dogs around. Looks like we're going to have our hands full! Hopefully the vet will tell us more on Monday. Roz is processing the photos right now to post. We'll have another play time and bathroom break before bed. It's been a big day for the little guy, and for our family, too.
