Guess Who's Coming to Dinner ? ? ?

It is always hard to say goodbye to our pets -- and this one esp since it was hubby's dog/best bud/shadow for 15 years. . . This is Norman --- or Normie as I called him -- and he passed away in January 2012.

This was puppy (Normie)  lying in my garden on my Pachysandra next to the bird bath that he was under the impression was a tall water bowl for him . . .  DH did not take his loss well but that was to be expected. He had talked about getting another dog but never did anything about it . . . until today --- he said he was ready for a new dog and today was the day he wanted to begin his search . . .   well that did not take long -- out of 6 puppies this little guy was chosen as he took right to DH and vice versa.

So Guess Who's Coming to Dinner ? ? ?  This little guy is Luke --

He seems to be pretty smart -- his first leash and already he has tried to chew that but I will say where there is a will there is a way --- I gave him Puppy Chow in a Cool Whip bowl as I have not washed his new bowls yet but as you can guess the Cool Whip bowl started to move so what else would you do as a dinner guest but put your foot in it to hold it still??? Silly puppy --- but it worked:

We stopped at the Vet's on the way home and he will be seen on Friday so that will be good. DH is over the moon and happy and that is always a good thing. He named the new puppy Luke and I am happy about that as he suggested Muncie --- like the motor parts --- so Luke it is.  A new addition to our family . . . .  but certainly no replacement for Normie.  TFL and YOLO

Hi Marie--busy night for me with little Luke--got the crate cleaned out and washed down for him and did wash his new little bowls so he is now sleeping in the crate--since he is so little this should be a good thing for him. Thanks for the congrats! :0) Candee P

Awwww,Congrats on your newest family member!! He is adorable!!! I love when they use their paws to hold something still while they eat!! It is hard when you lose a beloved pet, they certainly worm their way into your heart quickly! I hope this little guy brings you and your hubby lots of joy!!!

How cute is he! I think every house should have a dog. They love you so much and are so happy to see you when you come home. Our beagle is the most loving and sweetest dog. She will be 5 next month and is a rescue. Congratulations on your new fur son. Happy for hubby.

I know what it's like to lose long-time furry friends. Luke is adorable, of course! And obviously VERY brilliant, at least in the Common Sense Department, using his paw to hold down his plate!! Enjoy!!
