...in case there was any doubt before, we decided to take an official stand on the "we're totally crazy" front and put down a deposit on a new puppy this past weekend. Wasn't planned, at ALL, but for a long time now my "utopia" dog has been a merle long coat Chi and when I stumbled across this one, I really just could not walk away. She comes home to us on May 12, so now we have an agonising four weeks to wait! I have some small concerns in the very back of my head about Finley, but I think with some time he'll hopefully grow to love her. I'd like for them to become BFFs because poor Fin really needs someone to play with - he has so much energy, and he tries so hard to play with Gizmo but Gizmo just won't have it. It's sad to watch actually. So, fingers crossed!
