Happy Friday everyone! It’s also the first day of fall, it’s a wet and dreary one here in Michigan but I love this season nonetheless. Can’t wait till the leaves turn and everything is scenic and beautiful.
It’s been kind of a busy week for me because we are adopting a new friend for Phyllis!! It’s something I’ve been considering for a couple of years and one morning I got out of bed and had this feeling that it was really time to do it. I saw there was an adoption event going on that day and as soon as I stepped in the door, there was the most adorable cutie pie waiting for me : ) At least he seemed happy to see me! His name is Ziggy and they think he’s a Lab/Beagle mix. I thought he was a puppy at first b/c of his size but he’s actually a year and a half old. He weighs about 35-40 pounds which is the perfect size for Phyllis…she loves to play with smaller dogs for some reason. The guy who is fostering him brought him over last weekend to meet Phyllis and they seemed ok but didn’t really play…however both dogs were exhausted from earlier activities so it was hard to get a good read on them. I could tell they liked each other though and would probably play when they weren’t so tired. So we arranged to keep him for a few nights, at the very least, to see if this was a good fit for our little family. Phyllis is 7 and has always been an only dog but she adores other dogs and loves to play. She’s also not jealous at all and extremely laid back, she doesn’t care who plays with her toys, sleeps in her bed, or any of that other stuff that can be a problem with animals. Some of you know that I used to be a dog walker and a pet sitter so she’s always been used to having other dogs around.
Ziggy got here yesterday and they started playing immediately! And for hours! Last night was a bit rough, it was hard for him to settle down and we didn’t get to sleep until 3am which is waaayy past my bedtime. But today has been great so far, they have been playing inside and outside and now they are napping side by side on the couch in my office : ) I still can’t say 100% that we will adopt him but it’s looking pretty good right now! He’s so sweet and I am almost in love…OK I already am!
Other than that, I had a bit of the stomach flu this week but it seems to be gone now. Never fun. Or maybe I’m eating too much tofu…LOL!
I’ll keep you posted on the pup, have a great weekend everyone! Here’s a hot pic from this week’s new photo set!
