Lea Anna and I set a time to meet early in the morning at PetSmart in Richmond so that we could all meet Jasper and see how he and Iggy got along. I don't think I slept more than a couple of hours the night before. I was so excited to meet Jasper! Iggy had never been in the car for more than an hour and by the time we arrived he was acting like child that had been cooped up on the car on a family road trip. We walked up to the front of the store and met Lea Anna and Brenda who was Jaspers foster mom. Brenda spent about an hour with us patiently answering all our questions and giving us suggestions on training and health care. She was a huge wealth of information and had obviously done a wonderful job fostering Jasper. Jasper and Iggy seemed to hit it off really well and we fell in love with him instantly! Jasper sat in Andy's lap while I signed all the forms to make the adoption official. I think I must have asked a million questions and probably some of them twice, everyone at the Southside SPCA was so nice and very helpful.
After everything was signed and official, Lea Anna took this picture of us. Notice the crazed look on Iggy's face and how calm Jasper looks ;)
In my mind I pictured both boys riding on the back seat on the way home. We purchased a few toys for them and I thought they would be satisfied with that. Two and a half hours later with a drive through stop at Wendy's and we rode the whole way home just like this:
Jasper has been the epitome of the perfect Pug since day one. He is kind and sweet to us and to Iggy. We couldn't have asked for a better dog (and yes, that is a cute little snaggle tooth in the picture below). As far as being hyper, I think Iggy has cornered the market on that!
