Well, after years without a dog, the Weaver household is about to try to manage puppydom - getting a little girl dachound/cocker spaniel mix tomorrow. She's almost 8 weeks old and a colleague of mine's mom and dad need to find good homes for her and her brother. No name chosen yet. We want to have her here for a few days and get a sense of her personality before we choose. Bruce is less than sure that this is a good idea (that's putting it mildly), but with school letting out and Tori not having any camps or anything this summer, it will be the perfect opportunity for her to work with a puppy. She wants to get in shape, so there will be many "woofie walks" on her horizon. Once school starts up in the Fall, I hope to be able to take her (the puppy, not Tori!) to work with me most days so she won't be home alone too much.
So, wish us luck. We'll go pick her up tomorrow after Tap class and see how it goes. Tori knows that, since she's the only one in the house who won't have to be at work in the mornings, she's on "whine duty" every night and she'll have to get her butt out of bed at a decent hour to go on walks. She swears she's ready, and I have to believe she is.
So, here's the girl herself --- who could possibly resist those eyes?!??
