Barking Wednesday ~ Welcome Diesel

This Barking Wednesday I would like to introduce Diesel. Diesel is our new puppy! He is a Smooth Fox Terrier born on December 30th, 2014.  We will be bringing him home early March when he is 10 weeks old.

Here is a two week old picture of him, his mom and his three siblings. Diesel is the far right puppy! He is White, Tan & Black ~ a little of all three colors.


My hubby and I have always thought Smooth Fox Terriers were a fun breed. We like their personality, size and the look of the breed. 

A little info about the Smooth Fox Terrier ~The following info was taken from AKC.org
The Smooth Fox Terrier has a sleek, easy to maintain coat. Its sturdiness and size combined with its friendly and playful nature make it an excellent companion for children. They are bold but not aggressive towards people. Fox Terriers make excellent watch dogs in the home. New owners should be aware that the breed's innate sense to dig may affect the family yard or flower beds unless the dog is taught otherwise.
  • Terrier Group; AKC recognized in 1885.
  • Should not exceed 15½ inches tall at the shoulder and 18 pounds.
  • Vermin hunter
I love this pic I found on AKC.org! 


The next few Barking Wednesdays will be all about us getting ready for a new puppy. Then I will be posting Puppy info...our life with a new puppy! Helpful hints on What to Do and of course some tips on What Not to Do! 

Please comment with any Puppy Advice you have!

    1. I don't either because our dog is a rescue, so we got him when he was 2, but I am sure you will figure it all out.

  30. How exciting. I remember when we got our Shih-Tzu almost 3 years ago for my toddler. He was born just 2 weeks after she was and we got him when he was around 6 weeks old. He's been a family member since then. Can't imagine life without him. Can't wait to hear more about Diesel.

  31. Diesel is an adorable puppy! Like all babies, there's lots of advice. Love and gentle discipline are two things to follow. He may cry when he moves away from his family, so have something small and cuddly for him to snuggle up to. Have fun!
