We got a puppy

Check him out:



His name is Turbo ... which is very fitting. He's an 11 week old Jack Russell. We are also getting a female Jack Russell (posted a pic a few days ago). We're in for a few sleepless nights.

Thanks. This guy is incredibly cuddly. The first night we brought him home we put a clock inside the kennel. He slept like a baby. I guess the ticking noise reminds him of his mother's heartbeat.

Actually a couple of minute ago it was "now that I have this poo squished between my toes, how far can I run before the big guy catches me?"

OMG!

Inundated with cute puppy pictures -- <breath, pat - come on --- breath>


All of them TOOO FREAKIN CUTE. I mean l luv my rescue kitty - but he's a cat with kitty tendencies - and besides he's almost an ADD kitty - he has some problems - from being being living in a starving/sick situation - but now he's better - but he's still a cat and of the independent type. And he's cool - laying on my bike clothes at the moment, big ole furry bally guy.

But my little dog, RIP, of 16-1/2 yrs was someone so totally different, call her dependent but she was just the most bestest little buddy I ever had. She did everything I did. She went white water rafting (she hated it), she went sailing (hated that too), camped (loved that), hiked (totally loved that), etc etc. She shared a mini plate of holiday meals with the family - including a sliver of pumpkin pie with a smidge of whip cream on it - and she loved every minute of it. And she probably traveled 12 out of her 16 plus years with my ex-husband as he went on his plumbing calls (he owned his own company) - Mindy had her own dog bed in the van, and the customers all knew her. It will take a very special dog to replace her

Yep animals become definite part of your family.
