I’m not sure I was ready, but now that I got home to find a new puppy, I must say I love him. But what cold-hearted bastard doesn’t love a puppy?! This Is Paterson*, our Lab-mix rescue from Mexico. Size and disposition TBD. Hope he gets along with the cats! He has a curve to his tail that we’re curious to see where it comes from.

* The name is tangentially in keeping with our cat naming convention, who are all poets or writers. Paterson is a movie starring Adam Driver (my wife has a crush on him) as a poet, and references William Carlos Williams, the famous poet from Paterson, NJ.


We had a cat (Jack Bob Zero, aka "Jack") who had a short tail with a permanent kink in it - we were told by the rescue folks that it was the result of inbreeding. Jack was a great cat and I'm sure Paterson will be a great pup. Congratulations.

Good news was requested, so here it is. :) We really thought we were going to take a six month break from the 'dog-life' after Dee passed two weeks ago, but life is funny that way and said "nope - you need a dog in your lives and you need one now!" We listened.

As some of you already know, this is Luna; a 3-year old rescue from Mexico. She's part cattle dog and part TJ street dawg. Appears not to have much, if any training. Super intelligent though. And stubborn. And sweet. And awfully pretty. The house feels more full already (and hairy).

Welcome home Luna.

He did great on his first off-road adventure, and he’s a natural trail dog.

Luna and Paterson sittin' in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G, first comes love, then comes marriage....
Sorry, I couldn't help myself - they're both so damn adorable.

Lol. Patterson appears to be part Wolverine. I mean, look at that damned hole he dug in the boulder. :shock:
