Here I am all comfy at my new domain name!
gee, it sure feels good. I’ve been back home and gone again twice since I last posted. The kids are all great and we’ve added a new member to our family – Smokey the dog!
After begging several rescues to place a dog in our home, I gave up and “bought” a dog. It ended up being cheaper anyway but I regret not giving another dog a second chance. I was told by all of them that I couldn’t get a small dog because I have a toddler and two other kids. Bigger dogs were recommended by those who bothered to reply. Three local rescues didn’t bother to even get back to me after I filled out there loooooooooooooong questionnaires.
Anyway, it turned out well because we got a little sweety, he’s so cute and cuddly but at the same time he is fiesty and sturdy. He’s a chihuahua/jack russel mix and black and white with little beige streaks.
I went to pick him up with the girls. Smokey took to girl2004 right away, he’s not a jumpy dog but was giving her little kisses and running around her. Girl2006 was terrified and screamed “dog E, Dog EEE” repeatedly for the first two days or so.
Then suddenly she started going up to Smokey and petting him, holding him and saying, “hole me”. It is soooooo cute. I’ve got to get it on video!!
Of course boy2001 is thrilled to death and walks him in the snow *brrr*. We’re still working on housetraining, thank goodness for the crate training!
