I nixed that suggestion.
But there's this thing I go through every now and then, I call it Baby Lust. I went through it when my boys were toddlers, and I thought I was assuaging that urge by acquiring a puppy (Lucy), who was way more dog than I was prepared for at the time. And then, Oops! I I was so busy with two human puppies and one canine puppie that forgot to take my birth control pills a couple of days in a row, and was blessed with a Surprise Drama Queen (who is now almost 14, and the Abbot to my Costello, the Fruit in my Loom--not a mistake or an accident, but a wonderful surprise). Yep, getting a puppy resulted in getting a baby.
Anyway. Last weekend, I wandered in to my local Petsmart, which is when the Stray Animal Adoption Program has animals who are looking for a forever home. Sigh.
I tried really hard to ignore the idea of a new dog, I really did. The Big Guy had recanted his suggestion of a companion for Stella.
And so I would like to introduce you to Penny:
