Our new pup, Cognac.

Everyone deals with their dog passing differently. For us our house felt empty and we wanted to get a new dog soon. I did not want a puppy, they are cute but a lot of work. We looked online and went to the Seattle Humane Society 3 times, a Rescue home and 3 adoption events. Although many of the dogs were great, they were not a good fit for us, then we saw Cognac online, last Sunday morning. Hannah and Emily left to wait in line at the Seattle Humane Society. They had 3 puppies and they were 2nd in line so we knew we would get one if we wanted him.

The 3 pups came from Hawaii. My friend Rebecca had posted that she was transporting 4 puppies from Hawaii to Seattle on Alaska Airlines. The puppies fly free if they have an escort otherwise it is $400. Here is the link if you are interested:

Cognac is a 4 month old lab mix. He’s active when he wants to be. He is almost house trained, when we pay attention to his cues. He’s crate trained and I only spent a few nights on the couch. He is getting better on the leash and did great at puppy playtime at Petco.

Can’t wait to take him on a run!
