Yesterday was a really bad day. Mr. Pibb kept going downhill and I made the tough decision to return him to the SPCA and let him be put to sleep. He was such a doll for the week that he was with us, and I have come to terms with the fact that he was too sick when he came to us.

I really miss him.

With that experience behind us, I am a little bit more reserved with the joy of this announcement. I'm also a bit put off with the idea of a 'replacement dog'.

I'm sure when I'm feeling less sad about Mr. Pibb, I will share with a bit more joy.

Today, I went down to the Deeley SPCA location. I didn't feel comfortable going back to McKinney. I also found out where the closest VCA hospital is so I can take our new puppy there instead of to the McKinney office for his 5 day exam.

Meet Shasta, our new baby boy (keeping with the soft drink theme). He's four months old and APPEARS TO BE PERFECTLY HEALTHY! He's vibrant, snuggly, eating, drinking, giving kisses, playing with toys, gnawing on bones, normal dog stuff. We THINK he's part Lhasa Apso, part Chihuahua. Someone at the SPCA downtown thinks Chinese Crested Powderpuff. What would be your guess?

he's darling.... but I have no idea what he could be.

Good old fashioned mutt?
Those ears are mighty big.

They are huge. And cute. One flops down usually while the other sticks straight up. Mr. Pibb had the same thing, so in a way it reminds me of him when I see it.

I really do need to clean up Shasta's eyes because they are a bit stained, but I can't believe how cute he is. It's also a bit strange to see the little light brown nose and eyes.
