Good news on all fronts: The dog we adopted and returned to the shelter got adopted and hopefully is going to have a wonderful life with a new family. I was really worried that he'd sit in the shelter for a long time, but he got scooped up pretty quickly, which was my hope for him. Awesome.
And we found a puppy that is a perfect fit for our family. Here's Liz Lemon, the Australian Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix:
We adopted her from the same rescue group where Molly came from. They said the mama led her two babies up to a house during a storm. The people who lived there had just adopted a cat from the organization, so they brought Liz Lemon, her brother, and the mama into the group's foster program. We think she's about 3 or 4 months old.
She has all of her razor sharp baby teeth still and absolutely loves to wrestle with Molly. This picture looks super ferocious and Molly looks especially demon possessed, but I promise you they're just playing. I call this "wrasslin'" and Julian was not entirely sure that wrasslin' is a word, but I assured him that since we live in North Carolina, that shit is totally legit. These here be hillbilly dogs.
Lucky for her, Liz Lemon is mighty cute. She has trampled our vegetable garden and has needed an absurd amount of baths for a someone who has only lived with us for one week. And just this afternoon, I found her precious little ass under our back deck, crunching on a squirrel skull.
So. Effing. Gross.
Saved by the cute.
Not dog related at all, but this morning Audrey was eating her breakfast and suddenly looked up all panicked and said, "WHERE DID MY TOAST GO?" Nothing happened to her toast, except that she ate it all. And apparently she has the attention span of a lentil because how can you not notice that you just ate your toast and then ask where it went? So I was all, "I made it disappear with wizard tricks." thinking she was going to be cool with that answer.
No. She was not cool with that answer. She got so very pissed at me, that I could have possibly taken her toast with wizard tricks.
So I had to be like, "Chill, dude. I didn't use wizard tricks. You ate your toast. Remember?"
And just as quickly, she was so fine with it. Just as long as it was her who ate it, and not my awesome wizard skills that made it disappear.
Sending thoughts of love to the people in Oklahoma right now, who are dealing with unimaginable losses.
