I interrupt this art blog to introduce Batllo (as in Casa Batllo in Barcelona, pronounced bat Yo).
He is a 3-5 year-old terrier/daschund (?) mix who was rescued from a puppy mill. We adopted him on Sunday and are in love with him. He needs lots of calm, quiet, tlc. He’s very calm in the apartment, spending much time in his crate, but venturing out occassionally. Outside the traffic is too big and noisy, but we will help him to acclimate. We he accepts touching and physical care, but is easily overwhelmed by close smushy love, so we let him have his space. He seems to like other dogs, though we have yet to see his little nubbin’ of a tail wiggle yet….all in good time. It is so good to have a dog at home again…to walk and care for. It doesn’t take away the sorrow we have for losing Mimsey, but he fills a new spot we have just for him!
