Well, I did get a new puppy on Tuesday. Went to the vet today and everything is ok. It is a boy named Max ( I thought about naming him Josh after you know who because he is as cute as he can be, but it didn't seem to fit with our other dog's name or our last name).
He is a Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie mix), 16 weeks old and weighs 5 lbs. Mostly white with brown and black markings. Our other dog Maggie seems to think it is her puppy at times ( she is about 6 1/2 years old). He is already a hit with the 14year old son and husband. I got him as a rehoming
( the person I got him from had her schedule changed and couldn't give him enough time). Housetraining him will take time as smaller dogs do take a little longer, but that's ok. When someone can't watch him, he goes into his crate for his safety as well as my house's. My son took a picture to show his friends at school...I told him a cute puppy is a definite girl magnet.
As most puppies do he has separation anxiety, but like kids they have to learn that we will return for them.
Other than that I cooked and helped out at the teachers luncheon the PTA sponsored at my son's school on Thursday. Today was book club day, we read The Shack. Very intense book.
Well, got to go take the puppy out. Everyone have a great weekend!!
