Our New Addition: Remy!

Wednesday, August 17, 2011 - 
For those of you who follow me on twitter or facebook, you may have already seen our new family addition.  On Sunday, a pup names Remy came home with us and is happy to be in our home (well, we think so at least!)

We had been discussing getting a second pup for quite sometime.  As many of you may know, Nala, is a ball full of energy.  We wanted her to have a playmate, so we began our quest.  I was all about getting a rescue dog or a pup from the humane society, so we kept our eyes pealed.  Fortunately, it all worked out!

We made our way to the Tri-State Shiba Rescue in Ohio this past Sunday.  We learned that Remy (who was then being called Nelly) had been found wandering the streets by the dog warden.  The pound had her for a few weeks, but Remy kept escaping.  By escaping, this means she was jumping 7 foot fences.  Yup, we have a climber on our hands.  They couldn't keep utilizing their resources for the same dog, so they asked the rescue to take her (rather than the sad alternative).  Once the rescue posted her photos, we called immediately and within 24-hours, Remy was on her way to her new home.

Something you may not know, her full name.  Nala's full name is Nala Alice De Vil.  Yup, like Nala from Lion King, Alice from Alice in Wonderland and of course (my fave), Cruella from 101 Dalmations.

I'm sure you guessed already that Remy is named after Disney as well...Good guess, cause you are right.  Her full name is Remy Kanga Malificent.  Remy from Ratatouille, Kanga from Winnie the Pooh, and Malificent from Sleeping Beauty.  I'm a villain lover, so villains had to be part of the name.

Nala is getting used to her (slowly), but Remy has embraced home and all the love she is being showered with.  We affectionately call our house 'the circus' now, as I'm sure walking two Shiba's down the street can look quite amusing.
