A New Addition

My baby has wanted a puppy for forever. To prove he could take care of a dog he has been taking care of Smokey since Thanksgiving, all by himself. Smokey is the ranch dog - and you could not ever ever ever get a better dog than him.
Little bit Really Really wanted a puppy though. So we told him that when school was out he could get one - probably a dog from the pound.

Little Turkey that he is - he kept asking to go to the pound, before school was out, just so we could look. I should know better. My inability to say no to an animal is legendary!
Of course we found this little darling and he HAD to be ours. I think he is a small dog though, and that he won't be getting much bigger.
His name is Sundae and he is a darling. We have had him since Saturday and he is fitting in quite nicely. He is so small you can carry him in your arms.
And the best news - School was out today!!! So he can have his puppy full time. We have been under a tornado watch/warning for a while, and we have learned that Thunder is not his favorite thing!

Oh, I have to avoid the pound too! I have three dogs and that's the limit in the city. But if another one just happened to show up one day and needed a home, I would have a really hard time saying no. What a cutie...the kid and the dog!

Awwww, he's adorable! He doesn't know it yet, but he's just won the lottery! Bless you all for going to the pound!

Sundae is a cutey. A long haired dachshund if I'm not mistaken! We have two dachshunds, one smooth and one that looks like Sundae. They are little devils and like to chew as puppies, especially wood (so watch your table legs), but they are the most loyal and loving little dogs. I hope you all enjoy this wonderful new family member!
