B and I have talked several times about getting another dog so Sampson can have a buddy now that Cricket is officially not living here anymore, but we always end up talking ourselves out of getting another dog since we frequently have Cricket over for extended stays while my sister is out of town.
The "should we adopt another pup" debate arises every few months, and gets shot down each time, usually by B introducing something called "common sense" and/or "logic" into the conversation. Imagine my surprise when he came home from a clients house with some crazy idea about getting one of these. After my pointing out that one of those grows into one of these, we talked about it some more and decided that, size-wise, maybe that isn't a good match for us.
His sudden interest in a puppy led me to think about adopting a dog again. I did a little half-hearted browsing this afternoon, and then it happened. I fell in love. Head over heels, no going back. A tiny little Australian Cattle Dog mix. (Anyone remember this?) Oh my goodness. I called him, we talked about it, he did some thinking, and now...now he wants to meet her. I've sent an email to the foster mom, and hope to hear back soon. We'll see what happens.
I'm trying not to get too far ahead of myself since nothing is concrete and her adoption fee is a bit pricey, however, I've already come up with three top contenders for her new name (um, because her name is my name too), am figuring out what we'd do when Cricket came to visit/stay, and where we'd board Sam and the new girl when B and I travel. I'll be sure to provide details and updates as this situation plays out.
I know I said I'd post about knitting, and I will, just not now...it's all sooper sekrit holiday knitting, and I was recently alerted to the fact someone who's gift I THOUGHT was safe to show knows about this blog. Soon, though. Knitting post soon. For now, check out the sweet deal I found on our roadtrip while shopping with Carrie.
