...it was barely a couple weeks ago when Bear lived out his final days on my back patio instead of behind the cleanout house...
...and NOW look who showed up to take his place as of yesterday afternoon, in a most brief and slightly confusing (to me anyway) encounter with my partner's son (also Bear's former real owner) when he accidentally pulled into my driveway right behind me just as I was arriving home from work myself, unloading both Junior (see above post too) and THIS little girl on a leash, asking "Did you talk to Pops this afternoon"...??? My answer was "...uhhh...no, I haven't...why...???"
And less than 15mins later my backyard had/has a fresh new "occupant"...hooked up for now to Bear's cable thingie for the moment which I hadn't yet retrieved from the yard...?? <shock><rub eyes><shake head><wow>
ANYWAYS, everybody. Please meet OREO (name picked by Junior) who is pictured here earlier this evening after her 2nd official 'walk around the block' with me. I dunno her breed (if there is one, or two or ??) or even actual age, but she's otherwise a terribly sweet young female pup full of springs and rubberbands (just like Missy down the street) who seems to be ever so comfortable (pic 4) both with now living out there, and accompanying me on my (mostly) daily 'health walks' around the block. Gads...if she ends up really "living" here the little girl is likely to hold me more to that schedule now than ever before, even if I otherwise spent the day on ladders/platforms/etc doing my real job... <groan><sigh>
Still -- it's also been surprisingly fun to have her with me these last couple days on those walks. She's also a polite little girl it seems, totally curious about everything but also getting along instantly with neighborhood kids and even other dogs. (I think, most of which are usually behind fences/etc except for Missy who was running free last nite, (she's been shown here too) they even seemed to get along at their first brief meeting??
OH GOOD LAWWDY...WHAT HAVE I DONE to myself now...I don't need yet another 'expensive hobby'...??? <LOL>
