I Finally Gave In


Well…it finally happened. We have a Dog! After much debate, we have named her “Gingerbread Latte” or “Ginger” for short. We resisted the urge to go with the standard kid names like “Goldie”, “Brownie” or “Puppy” – I don’t think I could have handled that! Anyhow, she’s 8 months old, smaller than one of our cats and is a chihuahua, beagle mix (at least that’s what the vet thinks).

On the phone this afternoon (as my Wife was trying to convince me that this was a good idea), I remember talking about getting a big dog. You know, something that sends a shiver down your spine when it barks. Instead, we have Ginger (who already owns a pink “hoodie”) and could easily be mauled by my cat or a mildy strong wind.

In the end, she’s already grown on me. She’s a really sweet Dog and the kids love her…Besides, how can you resist that face?
