Yesterday I went to take care of my ladies, and found a new doggie there. I think the dog's name is Teddy, and there are new pets there constantly (on of the professional caregivers is an animal lover, and both of the old gals love having new cats and dogs around the house). I'm never surprised to find a new pet. I prefer pets that I can pick up. This was a szhi tzu, I think. I think that because I looked down and immediately thought it was Toby. Then I did a double take and said, oh, gee, this is a puppy. Oh, is there anything better than a puppy or kitten? The primary care-giver knows me well, and was going to leave the doggie outside. I told her no, and took the puppy in and put her on my lap. He was a very, very good boy. These two ladies are quite old (80 and 82) and they aren't likely to see this puppy again. But it told them to put on a mean voice (someting a dog trainer told me when I had Rosebud problems). Anyway, young puppy was gnawing on my arm! I just crackled up. For these two ladies, it could be a problem. I just tapped him on his nose. I did it maybe twice. All the family animals know me, and I keep treats in my purse.

Yeah, I have to remember to remove dog treats from my scrub pockets or they go in the laundry.

Just added a new member to my family- apparently he and his brother were picked up on the side of the road and they are just skin and bones. They fed him for a month before giving him away. He hasn't stopped purring since we got him lol. Unfortunately our other cat hates him. It's strange, because Tiggers usually gets along well with other animals, even dogs. Something about this kitten just runs him the wrong way. They'll get used to each other tho. What should we name him?? He is 3-4 months old:

It's nearly impossible to get a good picture of this little guy, because he thinks if you're looking at him, he should be on your lap. And if he's on your lap, you should be petting him. And if you aren't petting him, maybe he should crawl up and rub against your face. He is a little love bug

Oh Skittle he is cute as can be! A name is not coming to mind as I look at the pictures. Maybe he will name himself soon. What a fun addition he will be. I hope Tiger gets used to him soon.
