On Tues at our craft day, Karla surprised me by telling me I was getting one of her puppies for my birthday. She and my husband had been planning the surprise for about three weeks. Karla wanted to wait until my birthday to tell me, but my husband just couldn't keep the secret any longer.
We already have two dogs- Maddie, a thirteen year old golden retriever, who likes little dogs; and Buddy, a five year old Brittany, who has lots of energy and sometimes still seems like a puppy himself- I hope his new puppy brother or sister can keep up with him.
I'm excited about a little dog- I've never had a dog that I could dress up, or carry, or would fit in a purse, or I could lose in my backyard--- (note: get chicken wire).
I "borrowed" all the pictures on my blog (except the pink buttons) from Karla, because we don't have Button yet. My husband is spending the next week on the BAK (bike across Kansas)...
... and I'm the lucky person who gets to drive him and his bike from the green dot that says KC on the right of the map all the way to the yellow star that says "Goodland" on the left of the map. Then he'll spend the week riding his bike to Leavenworth KS. Its an organized tour, so he won't be lonely on the plains of Kansas and there's help on the road if he gets a flat or his chain falls off.
Anyway, we decided that we both should be home when Button comes to live with us, to make sure that all of our dogs get enough attention, so Button will stay with Auntie Karla for another 10 days or so.
In the meantime, I'll be starting on a wardrobe for that little Yorkie.
