As many of you know from this post we had to put down my mom's dog, Rusty. It was a hard choice but one we knew was best for the dog. - A few days later I called the local Humane Society to find out if they took donations of left over dog food and they said yes. So I packed up all the left over food and treats and Coleen and I took them down to the Humane Society on Friday 14th. While we were there we decided to visit the adoption center and look at the cats and dogs that were available. Can you tell where this is leading?
We spotted this adorable little dog in one of the cages and she seemed so excited about us being there. I took a snap shot of her with my phone (not the best phone for picture taking) and then drove back home to show it to my mom. She thought the dog was cute and so I talked her into going down and seeing it in person. They told us there that we could take the dog home for a 3 day trial to see how she did and if we wanted to adopt her after the trial we could or we could bring her back with no questions asked. So off we went with a new little dog. By Monday we'd decided that she was just so adorable and so sweet that we had to keep her. So without further ado....let me introduce you to,
Pixie: (Her original name was Fluffy but since the neighbor's cat is named Fluffy and my mom really didn't like that name she picked out the name, Pixie because of her sweet little pixie like face.) She's a long-haired Chihuahua (mix). She's very friendly and loves to be held, petted and have her belly rubbed. Just the right size dog for my mom to handle. Although you probably won't see many pictures of my mom holding her because my mom hates her picture taken.
We introduced Pixie to Cricket and while Pixie isn't thrilled to be around another dog she does tolerate Cricket and they both get exercise chasing each other around the yard as my mom said we could let them play together in her back yard. For those who don't know my mom lives next door to us so it's easy for the dogs to play together.
Coleen adores Pixie and loves to spend time playing with her and holding her.
