We got a new puppy from our local animal rescue shelter . . .
. . .she is very, very small and her name is Athena. Or Sophie. Or Sophena. We can’t quite decide.
Luckily she is not very cute and nobody is in love with her. Nobody at all.
No, nobody is absolutely delighted that we got her, so it’s easy to see why someone would dump her at a shelter.
Because at 2lbs (soaking wet) she’d be awfully expensive to feed.
Unless of course you’d be willing to sneak bits of chicken from your own plate when mom wasn’t looking, just to make sure she was not inconvenienced by pangs of hunger of any kind.
Jasmine would be fine if we took her back to the shelter . . .
And Holly wouldn’t mind a bit. Because nobody is in love with this little dog. Not really.
Weeelllll – maybe just a teeny bit . . .or maybe quite a lot.
Of course there are SOME people – er – dogs – who MILDLY disapprove of the new family member . . .
“What? New FAMILY member??? You’re kidding, right?!?”
“Mom! You CAN’T be serious!!! Tell me she’s not staying forever!”
Afraid so, buddy – adoption’s forever in our family.
