Today we added a new member to our little family…
This is Annie. She’s 6 weeks old. She likes chewing on things and long walks on the beach. At sunset.
(This is where you all say, “Awwwww,” if you haven’t already.)
Our Haitian vet, Dr. Tonie, who makes house calls by the way, called a while back to let us know that he’d found some Rottie puppies. Yesterday he called to say they were ready to come look at, so we did, and we brought Annie home.
She’s already very popular. Yonese told me a few weeks ago that we needed to get another “ti chen” because Jabez was much happier with Daisy. Now Jabez is just sad and she needs a friend to play with. When we got home Yonese was so excited and gladly took a big armful of puppy :) We went for a little walk to the work yard too to greet the workers and they all loved her. She made as much dezaud as she could in the short time we were there.
But, oh! What’s that? Another one??!?!
Yes, that’s two you see there. Your eyes are not playing tricks on you. You have not been sitting in front of the computer too long. Our friends, Gary and Carolyn, told us the other day that they also wanted a Rottie if we found some, so we called them and they came and picked one out too. They’re going on vacation for a month so we’re Kong sitting* until they get back. We should be having lots of fun here in the next few weeks…
It’s funny having puppies that are siblings. Miss Annie is very calculated in her attacks on her little brother. She’ll stand back, watch, duck her head a bit, then pounce. I love how tough puppies act with each other :)
*At the time of publishing their dog remained nameless. I have taken creative liberties and am calling him Kong until they come up with something better. They have 24 hours. If they have not provided a name in that time I will continue to call him Kong, even if they choose something at the 24h1min mark. I am serious. Okay. I’m not. I’m really just kidding around here, folks. It is my blog though, so I’m allowed to do that.
