The Doggie

Luke and I are puppy sitting part of this week ... just until tomorrow actually. We've had Daisy since Wednesday.

And she is absolutely adorable. She is a Shih Tzu, and seriously the smartest one I've ever run into. Let's be honest folks, this dogs are usually long on poofiness, short on brains.

Not so much with Daisy. She's got the poofiness, but also the brain, which I appreciate. Seriously, I absolutely love this dog!

I also think Luke is sold, though admitting it in public compromises his machoness (understandable, considering the poofiness). He actually SAID "we could get a dog like this after the baby is a little older." (as in, more than just unborn). Haha. Victory is mine!

I'm hoping by "dog like this" he means "possibly a scottish terrier," since I'm not willing to risk the poofiness/lack of brain scenario on this particular breed.

Baby shower today! with the Army friends, and one Monday! with church friends. Obviously, I'm excited.

Luke got some potential Army news Thursday and should have the actual news at some point next week.

Currently: we are moving to Kansas for three months
Next week: who knows?


  1. Hooray for dogs! Another little dog that's smart are jack-a-poos - half jack russell terrier and half poodle.

  2. My experience with dogs is that you get out of them what you put into them. In other words, if you're smart, and you expect them to be smart, they will be. All of our dogs have been pretty smart, except for those years when Kardia hung around my grandmother who had Alzheimer's a lot, and she lost some IQ points. Sounds harsh, but it's true. She picked them back up when she started hanging out with us again though.
