Meet Gilligan

Last night Tony came home after a farewell party for our friends, to wake me up in a very odd way.  “I found a creature and he needs us to take care of him.  Can we keep him?”  Yes, its like having a little kid in the house.  I, half asleep, was a little concerned.  “Here,”  Tony said, “stay there and I will bring him to you.”  Before I could say a word he was bringing a box into the bedroom to show me his new friend.  This got me up and out of bed quickly.  He’s so lucky I’m an animal lover.  I peered into the Busch Light box (nice, eh?) and saw a fairly large salamander!  I was a bit surprised, but after some convincing I helped to set up a temporary home for the little guy.  A rubber tote, some dirt and a water bowl.  Back to bed.

Tony is on his way to the pet store today to find out if we can keep him, and how we would go about doing that.  I think he really wants to be able to keep the little guy (just like a kid, huh? 🙂

A New Addition

Well, it has been a busy weekend around our house. Nope, no house projects, no scrap-booking, no treasure hunting. We got a puppy! Yes, we picked out a new little puppy Saturday night. It has been crazy at our house ever since. The dogs seem to get along, but are wild right now. So, I thought I would show you a picture of our cute little girl. She’s 9 weeks old, and she’s a Boxer/Rottweiler mix. I think she is going to be huge! We are considering naming her Wrigley, but let me know if you have any other ideas!

Does she look like a Wrigley? And, did you see all those wrinkles she has to grow into? And the size of those paws!?

P.S.  We are still undecided on a name, but have narrowed it to Wrigley, Marley or Ridley, so let me know what you think!
