Default Meet Joey

I'm back. I had to take a short break from the forum to collect myself and make my own decision regarding the Ibizan (formerly Roger).

I did decide to keep him. It was not a decision I made lightly and I went back and forth in my head trying to convince myself which decision was the best one to make, but in the end I did make the decision to keep him.

(Side note: I do NOT want this thread to turn into a discussion about my marriage, but I did want to add without going into a lot of detail that Josh and I are doing better as of right now and he did mention he is willing to see the marriage counselor. We had a LONG talk and basically hashed a lot of stuff out and that helped tremendously. Definitely taking steps in the right direction. He is ok with me keeping this dog on the agreement that we will not be adding anymore animals until one of the dogs passes on. That's fine with me and I can agree to that.)

Anyways, back onto Joey. I named him Joey (Caliterp gave me the name idea) because he reminds me so much of a kangaroo. A few people mentioned he reminds them of Stitch from Lilo and Stitch and I considered the name Stitch, but I feel like Joey rolls off the tongue better and he seems more like a Joey to me.

As of right now we are in the process of moving. He is staying with someone until the end of this month. She has a greyhound and she spoils Joey rotten lol. He has already improved on his weight issue. She actually keeps an online blog for her greyhound and has written a couple entries from Joey's point of view.

Here are some photos that the girl that has him temporarily took of him. I have videos too.

He's 2. Trying to figure out what else he could have in. Most of the guesses people have given me is Podengo or another Spanish influence, but mostly he is Ibizan Hound.
