No, the baby isn’t here. I know, I know. I shouldn’t tease you like that.
Denny and I, being completely logical and rational, decided that 3 weeks shy of having a baby, we should get another dog!
We have been looking into this for some time now, but we didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a dog (nor do we have a lot of money to spend). So Denny, along with the help of his other wife, Craigslist, found us a dog! For free! Her dad is in the military and is being shipped overseas for the next 3 years (I hate that word – shipped – it sounds like he is a package or something equally unimportant) and has nobody here to leave her with. So we adopted her! She is a miniature pinscher (min pin) just like Magnum, and they are the best of buddies already! Magnum was so lonely – his only companion was a cat – and she is not quite as active as Magnum. She came home with us two Sundays ago, and she fits right in!
By the way, have you ever tried to take a picture of a min pin? It’s like trying to hold a baby who has just learned to walk – it’s nearly impossible! They cannot be still!
