There will soon be a new addition to my family.
This is the part where Mom said, "No. No there won't be. You're not pregnant are you?!"
No, Mom...no babies.
Let me introduce you to Skip, a three-year-old cocker spaniel who needed a new home. (How could I refuse?)
The shock collar around his neck will be GONE. He's been staying in a yard without a fence, but since my yard is fenced in, there will be no need for all of that!
Here's the plan:
Skip (whose real name is Skippy, but whom I will undoubtedly NOT call Skippy) has always been an outside dog. That's all he knows. He is supposedly VERY mild mannered and calm and I am hoping beyond hope he will be a good influence on my little hellion.
I've been trying to ween Toby from the house. I have a huge backyard for him to play in, but he gets lonely out there and resorts to barking incessantly until I let him back in. My plan is to put Skip out there with him for company and finally rid my house of tiny, white dog hairs. (THEY'RE EVERYWHERE.)
And I never thought I'd be one to mind it. I've always had an inside dog, but lately I've been getting frustrated.
I LOVE Toby, but I am so tired of my house smelling like dog, even after his baths. I'm tired of my sheets, couches and floors being covered in dog hair. I'm tired of stepping on chew toys when I get up to pee in the middle of the night and finding raw hides hidden under my pillow when I'm trying to fall asleep....
So, we'll see how this works out!
He will be delivered to my house this afternoon, so there will be more pictures to post soon.
