The next big project

What in the hell is she doing this time?

Making something creepy, for sure.

I thought this was going to be a post about her next big project.
What's so big about sewing a sweater?

Now is it starting to make sense?

How about now?

After months and months of trying to talk myself out of getting another dog,
I have now talked myself into getting a puppy, because...
1. I cannot live one minute without a dog in my life.
2. Smooch isn't going to live forever, damnit.
3. Now is a good time for Smooch and I to train a puppy.

I found a litter of my preferred breed (mutt) through Lap Dog Rescue of New Mexico.
Their mom, Sophie, was surrendered by her owner to a county animal shelter,
which contacted the rescue to see if they would take in a 30-pound dog
who was going to have puppies imminently.
The rescue said yes, and Sophie was placed in a foster home
just in time to give birth.

I met the puppies Saturday morning, when they were 3-1/2 weeks old,
and picked out two females. The foster mom will be keeping an eye
on their temperaments to see which one might be the best fit with Smooch.
I'll visit them again in a few weeks to make a decision,
then, assuming all goes as planned, which like never happens
and why am I even writing this all down and jinxing the whole damned thing?
Because there's no way I could keep it a secret and I thought you might enjoy the news.
 So if all goes as planned, sometime around the beginning of June,
the chosen one will be delivered to my doorstep by the foster parents.

Are you screaming yet? Because I am. I'm getting a puppy!

You might have been so focused on the puppies in the video that you missed seeing Sophie.
She's the one in the pink collar. The father is unknown, but given the size
of the puppies, the rescue folks believe they will grow to be 30 - 40 pounds.
(Smooch is 40 pounds.)

The next six weeks will be kind of busy around here.
There's a whole lot of puppyproofing to be done,
say nothing of shopping for puppy accessories.

The foster mom promises to send more video updates.
I hope you don't mind if I post them.
