Our newest fuzzy kid

Meet our new puppy ... Ronnie (DH) and Chris (DS#2) go to meet the breeder in the Biloxi, MS area tomorrow to pick him up.

We had a choice of two little males (their sister had already been spoken for). The larger one the breeder's grandchildren had named "Bear" as he was the biggest of the litter and a bit on the 'pudgey' side. He is also carrying the long-haired trait. So we decided on the other one since he's a short-hair. We sometimes get AWFUL infestions of ticks and they are easier to spot on a short-haired animal.

For now we are calling him "BJ" calling up memories of the old TV series "BJ & the Bear." Information from the breeder in Louisiana says "Now, Bear's brother (we have not named him) ... he is also very playful he likes to give lots of kisses and loves to be held if it was left to him he would glue himself to you. He also has a great personally. He nor Bear is shy."

I'm so grateful to Cheryl for letting me blubber over the phone. She has some really cute doxie pups and seems such a sweet lady.

Dear Teresa,

I was searching for tatting blogs when I stumbled across Teresa's Crafting Stuff. It's wonderful!

Your blog entries about your new puppy as well as about the death of your 12 YO daschund, Bouncin' Brownie, is what prompted me to send you an email. In particular, it was the line: "All I've done today, it seems, is blubber."

You see, for the past 17 days I've been blubbering off and on over my dog Julie -- a beagle mix -- who has been battling Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia. Doctors have not been able to determine the cause. So I've been blubbering any time she would show signs of exhaustion.

Last evening, we finally got the blood test results we've been hoping and praying for. Julie, it seems has begun to rebuild her red blood cells and may be on the road to recovery.

Your blog touched that place in me that deeply loves my pets and I was gratified to read about your new puppy -- AND your tatting!

Thank you for blogging about both subjects. I will be checking back from time to time to see how you and your family are doing.
