And his name is?



We aren't sure yet! But we do have a dog. A 10 week old male Westipoo (West Highland Terrier/Poodle mix) to be exact. We have narrowed the name list down to 5 possibilities and are going to let Bryn pick the final name in the morning.

So new dog day went something like this...

We went to my friend Cassidy's house to see her Brittany Spaniels. Yes, they were precious and yes, the parents were bigger dogs with feathery, sheddy fur so despite the 10 pairs of precious puppy eyes, I managed to walk away. Only because I focused on the vision of my bagless vacuum filled with even more hair than it currently is with two cats in the house. I called some numbers I found in the paper for various breeds (one of which asked me what kind of dog I was interested in and informed me they had THIRTEEN different breeds of dogs - can you say "puppy mill"?) and didn't hear anything I was totally impressed with. I had seen an ad for a puppy groomer and store run by two vets and we stopped in. Bryn fell in love with a neurotic mini schnauzer, so we beat a hasty retreat and headed to their other location in Kansas City. After 2 hours in the store meeting many dogs we narrowed it down to a Westipoo and a Shih-Tzu. Bryn was really pulling for the Westipoo...Aaron stopped in after work to make it an official party and we decided on dude pictured above. Although I feel a bit guilty for not rescuing a shelter dog, I am feeling very good about having a dog that is the size I want with a seemingly good temperament and no fur to be vacuumed up. And if it ends up being a disaster, it will serve me right, right?!?!

Anyway, we made it through the evening without any accidents in the house (although I had no idea the back step was a more appealing bathroom than the entire green, grassy yard) and puppy is currently asleep in his kennel. So far so good...we'll see how tomorrow goes.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww! How adorable! I am SO not a dog person, but that one is too cute!!

Ohhhhhhh.....I want to hold him and hug him and squeeze him and kiss him and let him lick me in the face so I can smell his sweet puppy breath! Um, Yeah....I don't like puppies (riiiiiiigghhtt!).

He is absolutely adorable. I would love to have a little dog like that (who doesn't shed) someday. But it will have to be after the cat is no longer with us and when Ruthi is much bigger. (I don't think puppies are quite as flexible as kitties - and Ruthi would probably kill the poor thing!) Only I really don't want to have to house train a dog again!

Have fun with your new addition - he is precious!!

Oh Kara...he is just as adorable as can be!!! How are Harvey and Clarissa taking to the new addition to the family? Can't wait to hear what name Bryn picks. Did Aaron throw "Cletus" and "Shaniqua" in the mix? (Aren't those the names he had picked out for his kids? And how on earth do I remember that anyway?!!)

Oh my goodness, he's adorable! Look at those eyes :) He's a beautiful puppy which means he'll be a beautiful grown-up dog!

Can't wait to hear how its going and how he does at night. I always hate to hear them howl and cry at night, it breaks my heart :(
