We Got a Puppy!
Yup. As of 4:30 yesterday, Jose and I became the proud owners of the cutest puppy ever! We've been talking about getting a dog from the shelter some time in the future, but on Easter, my sister-in-law, Kitty, told me about an acquaintance of hers who unexpectedly had a litter of 12 puppies on her hands. I was pretty set on getting a rescue/shelter dog, but when I came home and looked up pictures of Lab/Weimaraner mix puppies, I totally gave in! Since the puppies were in Sacramento, Kitty and my neices went to see the dogs for us on Friday, picked out a couple of their favorites and texted me photos. We picked out a little black female, they marked her belly with a red 'A' and the the next morning they picked her up and brought her down to San Francisco where we were all getting together for Kitty, Amy, and my brthdays! It's funny, I got my last dog, Riley, on my birthday 13 years ago! He was a great dog, so maybe it's a good sign. She's still so little and sleeps a lot, but I have a feeling she's going to have lots of personality, just like he did.
It's going to be a lot of work (I'm convinced she must have the worlds smallest bladder since she pees all the time!) but we're pretty excited. Now if we could just come up with a good name...
ps...As I type this, she's sleeping next to me, twitching and letting out tiny little barks. I wonder if she's chasing something in her dream!
