new puppy!!!

is he the cutest little guy or what? he's a 1.5 year old yorkie/poodle mix (normally referred to as a "yorkie-poo," but i think i'll call him a "porkie."). i'm still working on his new name. he comes home tomorrow!

i found him at a small, under-funded, no-kill shelter in emmett, called pet adoption league (give them your money and facebook likes!). i went there for a different dog but fell in love with the porkie when he reached out with his tiny paws and then licked my fingers through the cage. when i go back tomorrow i'm bringing a whole bag full of dozens of toys, bones, collars, treats and other supplies for all the sweet doggies and kitties. i wish i could take them all home.

i've been thinking about getting a second dog for a while, and then last weekend i was pugglesitting for my parents, and it was so fun having a cuddly small dog around. andy is the best dog ever, but he's never been much of a cuddler, except when he's scared.

i bet porkie and puggle will get along really well--they're about the same size, although the porkie weighs less, probably under 10lbs. they will be so cute playing. what's with all the designer dogs at shelters lately? i've always been a fan of mutts, but so many of the mixed breeds are intentional mixes now, it's weird.

now andy will have a little buddy to keep him company while i'm at work! i hope everyone adjusts quickly. it's a very big deal. i'm going to work from home until everybody's acclimated.

Wow, that's great. Maybe I can stop by after work one of these days or during the weekend. I'd love a visit and garden tour.

It looks like your entire family is a dog lover, right? So, how many dogs do you have in your house? I also want to have as many dogs as I can, of different breeds. Having them around feels like you are surrounded with many kids, which means endless happiness! I hope your dog already has a name.
