The Sissy Chronicles

I have a new sissy... at least my girl says I do, and she is waiting to come to GooberStan. That's her on the right, playing with her brother. (They're 5 months old and only about 5-6 lbs right now).

That's her again on the right. I've been told she's a tough little chica. She's going to have to be if she thinks she's going to keep me in line.

We haven't named her yet, but are working on a list of names to try out on her when we meet her. We're hoping she'll let us know which one is her actual name.

She's a Lakeland Terrier (like Lacie, Scruffy's little sister). Here she's in squirrel patrol training at her foster home in Florida with her brother. (That's her again on the right). They look pretty intense, huh? It's a good thing she's preparing for squirrel patrol because she's going to have to earn her keep around here.

She is around 10 weeks old, was the only girl in a litter of 5 pups, and the other 3 boys are all black. They were found in a puppy mill that was being run on a pig farm out behind a trailer where her former owner lived. Thankfully, the great people at Florida Terrier Rescue (the rescue group Bussie's mama volunteers for, and the group that is helping Janie find a furrever home) found out about them and got them out of the hole where they were living.

My girl is going to Florida in a little over a week to bring her back, then she will officially be my sissy (though she's already my sissy in my heart).

More scoop will be forthcoming, but for now, I just wanted to share the news! If you want to read more about her and her brothers, you can go to their blog. It's called Double Trouble.

So excited I've got the wiggles,

Pee Ess

Big SHOUT OUT to Bussie's mama for paving the way with the rescue group, and for Bussie and Janie for letting my girl drop their names to some key hoomans. Those two are powerful pups in the dog rescue world, let me tell ya!

Wow, Stanley, Congratulations! Be gentle with her at first! Watch Nanook's video and listen to the Nessie and the Sandman say to Nanook, "How do we play with the baby?" They are such a riot!

Bet you guys will have tons of fun together! And your mom gets to go to Florida!! What a cool place! We'd go in a heartbeat. It wouldn't be as fun for you since you don'y like the water as much.

Hey I need your help. On my blog are 2 pics - I need to see which is better. I know you have great taste in art. Would you tell me what you think? Thanks!

Woazers!!!!! This is insanely exciting. My mom is just about jumping out of her skin, she's so excited for you guys.

Me, I am very cool about the whole thing, but of course, I'm happy to meet a new pup. But my mom. Man! She won't stop jumping up and down. And you know something else? She came home tonight smelling like a dog named Teko. She says it's no big deal, but I don't know ....
