Introducing Oscar :)

Let me start off by apologizing... I have been a total slacker for the last week and didn't even try to prepare a new blog post.  I had creative block, a book I wanted to finish, and a house that needed to be cleaned. And then Sunday happened.

First a bit of background.

J & I had been talking about getting a dog for about 2 years now, but only really started looking this past spring.  We had pretty much given up on getting a dog this year at this point as most puppies that come into rescues here are for larger breed dogs, and we were looking for something small to medium in size.  Fast forward to Sunday...

I saw a posting on facebook from Atlantic Small Dog Rescue, about a puppy they had just received: an adorable 8 week old Chihuahua/ Cairn Terrier mix. I called J into the computer room and showed him the picture, and we decided that it was worth a shot to fill out the application.  Not long after I sent it in, I got an email back from ASDR saying they got my application, and not long after that, that same lady called to do a phone interview.  Well we got along great, and she said that pending the home inspection, she didn't see why we would have this little guy in our lives!

Yesterday morning she dropped him off and OH MY GOD HE'S PERFECT!  He's 8 weeks old and weighs 4lbs!  And here comes the proud momma picture spam ;)

I totally made that blanket for him the night before he arrived out of a pair of flannel PJ pants my MIL gave me that I had forgotten about lol

Hanging out with his Auntie LA & cousins

Meeting his sister (that went better than I had expected.  Still a work in progress, but I think it will be fine).

Out like a light!
Me & my boy!

Oscar & his baby :)

I'm sure there will be many stories to come about this little guy, so I'm going to stop here for today and "nap while the baby naps".
