A New Addition to the Family

We recently purchased a house and my kids have totally been bugging me to get a dog. We lost our last one about a year and half ago. She decided to yank her head hard enough to get out of her collar and go prancing with deer. We searched for a long time and decided it was hopeless. After that, I said we weren't getting any more. We seem to have such horrible luck... either the dog turns out to just be mean to the kids or we lose it. -- But my friend Judy told me about a lady that her dog had puppies (Shihtzu and Pomeranian mix) 8 weeks ago. She went there last night and said these puppies were being kept outside on a property that looked like it was the setting of a horror movie! The puppies were covered in fleas. Well, she brought me a little girl today and my heart just melted! So, she's coming home with me. I think I'm going to name her Edith, but I'm toying with the idea of Cashew. We'll see what the family says about it.

Here she is:

Is she not the most adorable puppy you've ever seen!

OK - I have to go visit my friend Laura at Memory Lane to get the blog candy together, but I still haven't taken that test drive. It's coming though...

PS - I had trouble posting this earlier - she's home now and the kids totally fell in love. My daughter cried! They've named her Bunny because she doesn't run in the grass, she hops.

Bunny's adorable! Our 12.5 year old Lab died in July. My littles want a dog so bad they can't stand it.

I'm curious about this test drive. Hope to see you soon!
