A New Addition to the Family

It's been slow around here this week, and it's all his fault.

Heather and I have been talking about getting a dog for some time now. I caught her on Petfinder every now and then, perusing the local shelters for dogs. I finally broke down the other day. We applied for a bull terrier mix named Lexie, spent an hour at the shelter that's an hour away, only to come home and find out that someone was "better suited" for her. So, we switched the name on the application for that cute little mutt.

He checked out at the vet the other day. At 16 weeks, he's 17.5 pounds, so we're thinking he'll reach 60 or 70 pounds full grown, but who knows? He might be horse sized one day. That'll make finding an apartment in the city... interesting.

Say hi to Oscar! He likes to chew my text on ecosystem management. Mmm... succession.
