My New Beatles Dog  
So we have a new addition to the family.

She's so sweet.



Her name is Abbey (like the Road!) and we adopted her from the AISD Superintendent of schools and his wife. They're downsizing, and their sweet 7 year-old yellow lab wasn't going to have a yard to play in, anymore. So they asked if we'd take her.

I, of course, fell in love instantly. Her face is so stinking cute. It was love at first sight.


Katie did not fall in love right away. She'll warm up.

Nolan says Abbey (Who the boys call Abs - too much NCIS, I guess) needs to lose a little weight. (*cough* So do I *cough*) and so she's going to accompany me on my 5 miles a day. This is what she looked like after.



I think she's going to fit in around here just fine. :D

Edit: And don't forget to vote at dg_ldws! I dare you to guess which one is mine. You totally won't be able to, I'm so stealthy. ;)

Adorable puppy.

Dogs make me happy.

Cats make me sneeze. :)

Your boys are so cool; they watch NCIS XD

Their father watches it, and so they have no choice. It's in the blood. :)

She really, really is.

So cute! Katie will come around. I miss my dog...
Carrie Leigh: C is for Carriecarrie_leigh on June 12th, 2009 03:43 am (UTC)
I still miss this dog.

Photobucket

His name was Mickey. I named him when I was four, but then Toni Basil's song came out, and that worked, too. He tap danced and grinned. A multi-talented pup.

Aw! My aunt & uncle's dog is named Abby! (Actually I don't know how it's spelled.) She's at least part lab. I hear her right now clicking around on the floor above me.
Carrie Leigh: winecarrie_leigh on June 12th, 2009 04:11 am (UTC)
Mine is very, very asleep.

She's adorable! Hopefully Katie will warm up to her soon.
sue_bridehead on June 12th, 2009 04:22 am (UTC)
Hooray for new pets! Don't worry, Katie will come around.

We got a new kitten on Sunday. We named her Joanie (after the red-haired secretary on Mad Men). Our 2-year-old doxie is very interested, but we're afraid he'll accidentally hurt her, so we are slowly introducing the two of them. It's kind of like supervised vistation: the dog can only visit Joanie if we hold him.

YAY for a new addition to the family.

I am not a dog person myself and our cats would slay us for bringing something remotely canine into the house.

She is so beautiful...

*hugs the puppy*

Awhhhhhh! So cute. I love all dogs, and Abbey isn't is no exception. She's lovely.

There is never such a thing as too much NCIS.

Cute dog! Good on you guys for doing the adoption thing too.
dL: giggledieloreley on June 14th, 2009 10:28 am (UTC)
Awwwww... the cutie! You hardcore exerciser, you! 5 miles is LONG! Go Carrie! *waves pompoms*
Carrie Leigh: candlescarrie_leigh on June 14th, 2009 02:28 pm (UTC)
Thank you thank you. Drastic times call for drastic measures, after all. :)

And Happy Birthday to you! Hope it's lovely and you get pampered silly. :D
