Yogi Bear

We now have a new addition to our family. A Yorkshire Terrier given to me by my friend that I play Bunco with. He is a registered one year old male and follows me around as if he was my shadow. Much adjustments are ahead for Yogi since he left a home with two other dogs to play with all day. So far he has slept two nights without barking. Must shop for a new dog bed as the previous owner has loaned me his so he will feel at home. She also sent his blanket. I think he sleeps on the rug by my bed instead of his bed. I know he wants to sleep in the bed with me as he did with his previous owner, but I cannot share my bed with an animal. I love my bed. For the first time tonight, he sat snuggled in my arms as I was reading email on the computer. Normally he does not like to be held tight or snuggled with, but maybe he is finally warming up. It will take some adjustment to get our routines and habits formed, but I am so in love with my new dog. It has been 16 years since I had a dog and I am loving it. I plan to take him with me when I travel to my daughter's. He likes traveling in the car I am told. Just sits and rides. Hope to post a picture soon of my sweet Yogi Bear.

Well, the weather has finally given us a few cool mornings, what a relief. Papaw and I will start to get some needed rest and relaxation. We now have a lady who comes to the house on the days we need her to take care of Aaron and his needs. Her name is Ashley and she seems to be a very sweet and caring person. It will take time for her aclimate herself to our daily lives and feel at home. We are also excited about getting a dog. My Bunco friend has a terrier that she wants to find a good home for, so she will bring Yogi over in a week and let him sniff and check out his new territory. I asked her to take him home and then bring him back the next day, so he will not be traumitized to his new home. He is house broken, about a year old. Will try to post a picture soon.
My daughters baby shower is soon approaching and I just could not resist buying Baby Jack a new outfit and hope mom will let him wear it home from the hospital. Just need to find shoes to match. This is such an exciting time and I can hardly contain myself waiting for my sweet grandson to come into this world.
My dear friend from Alabama called yesterday and told me she had a new granddaughter, Allie Elizabeth Pair. This is her first grandchild from her first born son Danny.
May God bless each of you today in a special way, as I am blessed for having such wonderful friends in my life.
