I was so sad today to wake up and read that Dixie Carter from "Designing Women" had passed on. I don't know much about her personal life but I grew up watching her on TV and so its just weird to hear that she has gone. I know her family is so sad. Did anyone else watch that show? I LOVED it and still watch the reruns to this day.
Victoria's birthday is coming up at the end of this month. The one thing she wanted was a new puppy but those little boogers are expensive. I had been looking and looking for free puppies but was only able to find breeds that I was not willing to take on. I didn't want anything with long hair because I already have a dog that I have to get groomed...what a pain in the butt.
Finally today during my craigslist search (gotta love that web site) I found four 8 week old puppies that were half Labrador and half Plott hound. I LOVE LOVE LOVE hound dogs. I think they are so sweet with their little floppy ears. Not to mention that both breeds are very sweet natured dogs. Yes you can call me crazy for taking on another baby, but Victoria has taken on full responsibility and the dog has not had one accident. I think she is going to take on this potty training thing fast.
We drove the twenty minutes to see the puppies and fell in love. They seemed to be very well taken care of and loved. I let Victoria pick out the one she loved with the only stipulation being that it had to be a girl (I don't like dealing with boy dog wee wee issues), and here is what we came home with.
MEET SWEET SASHA!!!!!
Our little Maggie does not like the new puppy yet. She does everything she can to avoid her. LOL
Getting used to a collar is hard work....and very itchy.
