Marley, the Lab Puppy, renamed Charlie

I was in the process of transporting a border collie lab mix, named Molly, for a wonderful family, when the dog was adopted. Well, that’s great for the dog, but this family was looking forward to adopting a new dog for their young daughter.

Molly was supposed to hitchhike with a Border Collie Aussie Mix, Daisey, from Alabama to Florida, where Daisey has a home waiting for her.

When I discussed my sadness for the Ciupok family to Rebecca, she quickly informed me that she had pulled a yellow lab puppy from the pound – a lab puppy that had not yet been spoken for. I asked a few questions about the pup, and my answer was Yes!

Hence Marley was not supposed to come to me, but he did. Marley arrived at my home, thanks to transporters Leonard and Dave at 4:15 PM yesterday. Twenty minutes later, Mrs. Ciupok and her mother-in-law arrived, it was love at first sight! Later, they drove Marley home to meet their young daughter, who was jumping with joy that she finally got her new puppy!

I love a good ending, and I can’t wait to get updates as this baby boy grows up to be an awesome dog. Marley has been renamed to Charlie. Fitting name for a happy boy!

    "He is adorable. The kids loved him. Sara was very excited and could not believe he was staying with us. He is very very scared around people and keeps running away from us. When we try to pick him up he yelps and tries to run away, but I hope once he gets used to everything that will go away. I am sure he is just real scared right now. He has gone to the bathroom outside every time we have taken him. I just put him back in the crate a little bit ago, and he cried for about 20 minutes. He is being quiet now. I will let you know how he is through the night, and I will also send you pics tomorrow. Thanks again."

    "He did real well through the night. I did not hear him at all. He is good about going potty outside too. Only one accident so far. I have to get him a new crate today cause it is hard getting him in and out. He is still scared of us, but each day I think that will get better."

    "Yes. I have been looking on Craigslist. I may buy a medium one for now then get a larger one when he gets bigger. Sara loves him. He still won't go to her, but she understands he is just a baby and will come around. We renamed him Charlie. My husband picked it out :). He will not eat today, but is drinking good. I figure when he is hungry he will go to his food. We are doing strict crate training so he is only out for very short periods of time. I will post pics later on of him. "

    Charlie is doing great. He has warmed up to all of us, and is acting like a typical puppy :). We did have to take him to the vet for his foot because he could not walk on it. It ended ub being inflamed. He was given some meds and is doing much better. He enjoys his daily walks, and playing in the backyard. We switched his crate the other day and he was not too happy with that. It is taking him some time to get used to it, but each day he is better and better in there. Sara is trying to teach him to sit. He walks pretty good ona leash for being a puppy, and sleeps all night. He also keeps me company for the 4 hours I am working from home. He sits right next to me in his crate and sleeps the whole time. I have attached some pics for you. We will keep you posted as he grows. Talk with you soon.
