Well, it looks like tomorrow we are going to be adding a new member to our family!
It all started on Monday when I was looking for cheap or free patio tables on Craigslist. I didn't find a table but I did find a very small and very fluffy puppy! She's 6 weeks old and is a long haired chihuahua mix. Chris and I did a lot of hemming and hawing over the decision but in the end has worked out and I will pick her up tomorrow afternoon.
Anders and I went to the local dog park to meet her on Tuesday and yes she was a little ball of love. Although Anders thought that maybe she was a large and very scary/amazing bear, and freaked out when she gave him a little lick on the nose and then talked about the puppy, baby the rest of the afternoon. We're hoping that having her around will help him get over his fear/idolization of dogs and that he will grow up learning to be a responsible and kind dog owner.
Here is a picture of the dog we will be calling "bitsy".
