New Puppy!

So my sister hauled me out at 8:30am this morning so we could start the long drive to Ottawa to get her new puppy from the breeder. We got to the place around 11:30am and the roads were pretty quiet so we were speeding along for most of the way. We only stopped once to hit up a bathroom then we were zooming along. It's actually a nice drive up the #7. There's basically nothing but trees on either side of the road at various distances, as well as lakes of different sizes and rivers. Sections of the road had a rock face on one of both sides too.

We showed up at the breeders house and I got to see the dogs for the first time. There were 5 in total. I thought my sister got a pretty nice looking pup but there was another that I really liked so I was holding it quite a bit and I played with her. If I had $1300 to throw down on an itty bitty pup I might... but I don't have the time to look after an 8 week old puppy! It would pee everywhere! And Mynx would not be impressed... But I'll get a dog some day when I have a house.

Anyways, meet Jillian Jinx (Jilly Beans)

She was in my lap in her dog bed for most of the trip but for the last 1.5 hours she was mostly just looking at me... staring even. I pulled her up to cuddle her into my shoulder and she started to climb up and behind my neck. Before I knew it she was sleeping. My sister thought she was after the body heat and the feeling of sleeping on top of another dog. With all the pups in groups of 2 or 3 they always had someone else to sleep on.

Also, I'm wearing my new sunglasses! I finally got those on Friday and it's nice being able to throw them on and be able to see! Before I would have non prescription sunglasses and I would either wear contacts or go out blind! So having a pair of prescription sunglasses is pretty awesome.

Oh geez, you're trying to build a zoo!
Want a couple blue budgies to go with the rest of your animals? I'll mail 'em to ya Wink Then, when you can get the dog, you'll have, well, two birds to go with your mammals Wink

I'd not have been able to resist the temptation! Jilly Beans, including the choice of name is adorable. Is your sister going to go for breeding and what breed is Jilly Beans?

Note: I always get the notion that dogs get to choose their owners and not the other way round. Sort of Jilly got her way with your sister. And her sister picked you.

The sun glasses look great.

Liking those new shades, L. I think Jilly Beans has bonded with you instead of your sister. I bet she cried when her 'snuggle buddy' (you) left.

I have the same doubt as dean... What breed? Right now my family would call me a failure because I'm a vet and I can't identify dog breeds on spot. I'm a cow vet!

I'm thinking of getting prescription sunglasses myself. I was researching about eye surgery some days ago and... Well, can't afford the surgery! So I'll keep my glasses and rock the sexy librarian look. Very Happy

Beans is a border terrier. My parents' house is full of animals! 6 cats and a puppy! And if Mynx goes to visit there will be 8 animals to dance around! My sister won't be breeder her, I think she signed something from the breeder that said she couldn't... I dunno. I'm almost under the impression that Jilly is just an all around lovable dog. I hope she grows to be friendly with anyone who comes by and she turns into the family dog.

Sexy librarian all the way!!!

ahh that's a cute puppy. I thought she's a German Shepard puppy (my favorite). Did your sister pay $1300 for her ? That's really a high price a puppy. Must be an expensive breed.
