In the last few months, the folks at Shannon Law Group have caught a little bit of puppy fever. A few months ago, the Shannons picked up Archie, and it sounds like he’s keeping them busy. A couple months later, my wife and I (but mostly my wife) decided to join the fun. Allow us to introduce Finnegan as the newest member of the SLG crew. We got Finn at the Chicago PAWS Adopt- a-thon in April. As an aside, the PAWS group does great work, and we cannot recommend them highly enough if you’re looking for a new dog. No one has been able to identify what breed of dog Finn is, but I suspect he comes from generations of mutts. Caitlin thinks he is part-Bernese mountain dog, while my veterinarian brother, Charlie, thinks he has some hound in him. Your guess is as good as mine. When Finn isn’t trying to chew our couch or eat every loose item on our floors, he loves running around at the dog park and chasing his football
toy around the house. I’ve tried taking him out for a run, but he’s a work in process. He only knows one speed — dead sprint — and I’m not in good enough shape to keep up with that pace for more than a block. Fortunately for us, Finn and our other dog, Riggins, a German shepherd mix, have taken to each other nicely. Riggins can get annoyed by Finn’s nonstop energy and the constant biting of Riggins’ jowls, but they seem to enjoy each other 95% of the time. As any dog owner knows, it takes a lot of work. That’s especially true when you have a puppy who doesn’t quite have housetraining down yet. Despite the early morning wake-ups and long walks in bad weather, it’s been a great couple of months so far with Riggins and Finn. We look forward to many more to come. Welcome to the family, Finn.
