This weekend, we were given a sweet puppy by some friends... of friends... who needed to find homes for the dogs. Hannah has wanted a dog since before she could pronounce the request... and she is absolutely in heaven now (but she still hasn't gotten used to being licked in the face. That's ok with me!)
Gadget's brother... "other puppy"... has been staying with us for a couple of days, while they get used to being away from their mother. Tomorrow he will be going to live with our neighbors, and we are glad the dogs will still get to play together sometimes!
Jacob is very happy about the puppy as well, but his tender heart was in full swing the day the puppy arrived... he wanted to stay near our kitten, "Billy" (who you may be able to see behind Jacob), so the cat wouldn't have his feelings hurt :)
*Side note... you may remember that we had two kittens... ....
We think that Benny tried to play with a coyote and (of course) has not returned. A few little hearts were broken, and Gadget will be kept in his pen or on a rope when we aren't home.
Other side note... my deepest apologies to the parents of all the children who were traumatized when my children reportedly explained the coyote incident to their friends... at church... oops.
We country people now... :)
We are really glad this little buddy has come to stay.
