Oh boy

We got the dog!

Now we just have to get her from Kansas.

Kate's comment wherein she says I'm brave, scares the crap out of me. Brave, loosely translated, means idiot.

I am an idiot.

I just got a shrunken apple head, mangy mutt without having met her -- did the Pascal experiment teach me nothing?

Pascal was one of our old dogs and he was not super keen, bless his heart, he really wanted to be smart and he tried, but he was dumb. Actually, Pascal was Rich's mistake. We actually knew Pascal before we owned him -- he belonged to my aunt, she was tired of dealing with him running away and Rich thought our other dog Izzy would like a friend -- thus Pascal.

Pascal was a great first impression dog, everyone loved him when they met him and then...I don't know how to describe it -- he was overly eager to please, but didn't know what the heck you were asking him to do.

I'm here, I'm ready, I'm your guy -- one more time, now -- what does this, "go lay down" mean?

Oh my word, who cares? We are getting a shrunken apple head puppy this week! I'm so excited. I'm already practicing, "girls, sit. Good girls."

Oops, I didn't mean to call you an idiot! at least not to your face, ha ha ha (I'm funny) Anyhow I do think you're brave the kids keep begging me for a puppy & I keep telling them we got Brooke instead! ha ha
How are you going to get her from Kansas? She is adorable, I'm sure it will be worth the chaos & poop & chewed up shoes! hee hee

I think when you trade a 130 lb dog for a 10 lb dog, the poop is mute (let's just say we used to dread the spring thaw and now we don't).

There is no chaos with the Gurtis -- I'm nervous about two because that's what happened last time, they set each other off all the time.

We are hoping to Cesar Millan yap out of them if they do.

calm, assertive....ohm
