Welcome to the Family, Phineas.

We’ve been busy at FullPlate Manor lately.  This is why.

There was endless drama surrounding this little guy’s entry into our family.  But, just like any addition to our home, not that I want to compare the entry of a dog to the entry of a child, but, in this small way it did compare, this wasn’t easy, but it was perfect.

There were so many disappointments, and false starts as we tried to work with service dog organizations, rescues, and finally, we landed with a breeder who has raised many a service/therapy dog.  It is our hope that we will be able to train our little buddy here to help with certain tasks that would make life easier for Gigi.  He does not need to be a service dog, more of a support dog.

Phineas is an 8 week old Mini-Doodle.  He will be 35-40 lbs when he is fully grown.  He currently tips the scales at a whopping 6.7 lbs.

He is patient.

He is kind.

He is so loved.

–FullPlateMom, who couldn’t have asked for a better furry buddy, even if he does pee all over her floors.

  1. How exciting! Congratulations on the newest member. I suggest buying white vinegar by the gallon, best thing to take out that pee scent on floors.

  2. We just got a new puppy too, so I understand the “pee on the floor” problem!

    We realized that our 5 youngest children had never been around when we had gotten a puppy- our farm dog is a Great Pyrenees and is over 6 yrs old. We hunted for over a year, trying to find something at a Humane Society or with a rescue, but didn’t have any luck. Finally found an older farming couple that raises Shih tzus on their farm, and we are having alot of fun with our new family addition. Enjoy the energy that they bring with them!

    Anxiously waiting for good news about Isabelle 🙂
