New pup

December 8th, 2008, 08:03 AM
Back during the first week of November we lost our eleven and a half yr old Australian Terrier Boomer to cancer. Boomer was a very special member of our family and his passing left a big hole in our lives.

The breeders who had given me Boomer way back then have been very good friends for many years and just happened to have a litter of Jack Russells. They wanted me to come over and see them, if I wanted one they wanted to give me one. I had been looking on petfinder and some other rescue sites but when I saw the pups I melted and wanted to take all five home with me. I couldn't decide on one that night but there was this one little girl who latched on to me and had to be pried off of me when I left.

The next week I went back with my wife. She wanted the "cutest" one of the bunch (who was also the noisiest and the escape artist). But wouldn't you know it the same little girl from the previous visit pretty much crawled in pocket and wouldn't leave me for anything. My wife and friends agreed that she had chosen me.

So the next Saturday on my way home from work I swung by and brought our newest family member home. When I got home and my wife pried the puppy away from me I looked at the puppy vaccination record they gave me, I then called the breeders to make sure they put the right birthdate on it. Yep, the pups were born on my birthday. I have a dog with the same birthday as me. How cool is that? So may I introduce Katie.

Congratulations on the new family member. Of course, she is adorable :cloud9::cloud9:

How old is she??? Either she is very tiny or you have mutant cats 'cause they dwarf her for sure :laughing::laughing:

The cats must be wondering what this dinky little creature is! :laughing: Looks like they get along well with the alien beast, though. :cloud9:
