When my husband called me yesterday and said I have a surprise for you.... after a little proding he finally told me... he went to the bike shop to get a new tire for the bike, lo and behold, one of the guys who works there found two little pups... yellow labs..a male and a female about 7 weeks old.. precious.. My husband got a new tire for the bike and a puppy too... she is so sweet and kept us up last night 1 am 3 am and 6 am.. like a new baby.... only instead of a crib she has a crate in our bedroom, lined with newspaper 2 little chewies 2 new stuffed toys and a fluffy towel to snuggle into... I covered part of the crate with a towel to give her a sense of a den.. same thing we did with Cookie and it worked.. only Cookie was much sicker than this pup.. Steve seems to think she and her brother got away from someone... the guy who Steve got the pup from said he found her and her brother on the side of the road and waited for a while to see if someone was going to claim them but was afraid to leave them by the road by themselves..he was concerned that they had just been dumped there also.. thats why he had them at the shop.. She is the sweetest little girl.. and is trying to hard to make Cookie like her.. Baz does not seem too interested unless her food is involved.. I know we were talking about a number 3.. and I am guessing now we have one.. although Steve is still a bit hesitant and said we might be giving her to a friend of his ... and I have another friend who has a friend that would want her too.. I just do not want to get attatched if I am going to have to give her up.. We are taking her to the vet later this afternoon to make sure she is okay..
Life is good right now... enclosed are some recipes I thought might be fun to try..

Awwww, another puppy! I'd ask for her but then mine would shoot me. He wants a poodle for his birthday. Gah...which is in 2 weeks. I love our four legged friends/children. ;-) And those artichoke scrambled eggs looks yummy!
